As per the last year's rule book,there can be more than 4 wheels on a baja car. Freakin! rule..Tongue 
Even though there are several disadvantages of using 6 wheel(Transmission,maintenance production costs).
Does anybody have an idea on how a 6 wheeled ATV can be designed.Confused
The drives,whether the power should be given for the rear most wheel or both four rear wheels.Embarrassed
And design variations in braking,steering mechanisms.Ouch

As an off-road, could be very capable on mud snow and rocks, but will be absolutely heavy and slow to be a competitive Racing Baja SAE.
Probably will look like this:

6-wheel atv/utv is not uncommon...

 








This is an actual 6x6 Baja from 80's:
