Frederick-ATV all draw pole slots for 44th Tecate SCORE Baja 500

Round 4 of five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series to be held June 1-3 in Ensenada, Mexico;
Pre-running opens May 18 as 38 SCORE Trophy Trucks already in starting grid

LOS ANGELES—Prominent Mexican racer Juan C. Lopez along with Cody Parkhouse, Mike Brown and Josh Frederick all drew pole positions in their respective division during Saturday’s drawing for starting positions in the upcoming 44th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race. The draw was held at the SCORE International headquarters in Los Angeles.
Round 4 of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series will feature over 275 entries, competing in 28 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs, and it will be held June 1-3 in Ensenada, Mexico.
SCORE is in its 39th year as the world’s foremost desert racing organization and this race is traditionally one of the most popular events on the SCORE schedule, with most the world’s best desert racers in action at this year’s 44th anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the original desert race produced by SCORE on July 26, 1974.
With late entries accepted up to race morning, entries are expected from 30 U.S. States, and 10 countries. The green flag will drop for the race at 6 a.m. on Saturday (June 2) for the motorcycle and ATV classes in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, followed by the car and truck classes three hours after the last ATV at approximately 10 a.m. The elapsed-time race will start and finish in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center on Boulevard Costero in the heart of Ensenada, leaving and returning into the city through the always spectator-laden Arroyo Wash. Pre-running on the official course, except for the 30-plus miles out of and into Ensenada, opens on Friday, May 18 in the area near Ojos Negros.
Mexico’s Lopez, who finished second in both Laughlin races and sixth in San Felipe in the No. 18 RPM OffRoad Chevy Silverado is second in SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck points. RPM OffRoad, based in Bristol, Tenn. leads the point standings in six classes after the first three races of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series. RPM has eight vehicles entered in the SCORE Baja 500 and as a team they have earned a total of 13 class wins the first three races of the season.
In Saturday’s drawing there were a total of 38 SCORE Trophy Trucks, the marquee SCORE racing division for high-tech, 850 horsepower, unlimited production trucks. Among the other entries in the class are current season point leader Rob MacCachren, the overall 4-wheel winner in this race in 1996 and a long list of other SCORE Trophy Truck winners in this event including Bryce Menzies (2011), Andy and Scott McMillin (2010), B.J. Baldwin (2008), Brian Collins (2006, 2007), Robby Gordon (2005), Alan Pflueger (2004) and Curt LeDuc (1995). Collins, Las Vegas will be the second driver for NASCAR Cup and Nationwide series driver Brendan Gaughan of Las Vegas, while LeDuc will be a driver for Nick Vanderwey, Phoenix.
Continuing to move out from the shadow of his father and his uncle’s experienced tracks, second-generation Southern California desert racer Cody Parkhouse of Long Beach, is fourth in SCORE overall points and continues to lead the unlimited Class 1 and will start first in his class in a Chevy-powered Jimco open-wheeled desert race car.
Brown, Murrieta, Calif., who ironically also drew the first start at the last SCORE race in San Felipe, will lead the motorcycle classes into the Baja desert with co-rider Quinn Cody, Los Olivos, Calif., on a factory-supported KTM 450SX-F.
A formed SCORE Overall ATV point champion (2005), Josh Frederick, Moapa, Nev. and teammates Dillon Zimmerman, Murrieta, Calif. and Cesar Lopez, San Felipe, Mexico, will start first among the ATV classes in a Can-Am DS-450. Frederick won the first 2012 SCORE Baja race for ATVs in San Felipe.
Menzies, of Las Vegas, is the defending Tecate SCORE Baja 500 race winner and 2011 SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point champion in the No. 1 Red Bull Menzies Motorsports Ford F-150.
Cody was one of the riders on last year’s winning Honda motorcycle team but has switched teams and the overall ATV winning team from last year’s race is also entered--Wayne Matlock/Josh Caster, El Cajon, Calif., who ride a Honda TRX700X.
While SCORE Trophy Truck has the most entries of any class in the race including 4-wheel vehicles, leading the pro motorcycle classes is the open Class 22 with six.
Class 25 leads the ATV classes so far with five and leading the Sportsman Motorcycles the SPT M/C> with 15 to date.
Following his third victory in the last five races and second in three races this season, Las Vegas’ All-America racer MacCachren has launched himself into the SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point lead after three of five races in the 2012 SCORE Desert Series.
With back to back overall wins in 2012 (Laughlin-Round 2 and San Felipe) after opening the season with a ninth-place finish in the first round in Laughlin, Nev., MacCachren, 46, has earned 177 championship points in the No. 20 Rockstar Energy/MasterCraft Racing Ford F-150. He is not only the SCORE Overall point leader, he is also at the top of the leaderboard in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division.The recent San Felipe victory was also MacCachren’s fourth in the last six SCORE races.
In San Felipe, MacCachren also earned the 75 all-time SCORE Baja overall race win for noted tired manufacturer BFGoodrich. BFG Tires have now been the tire of choice for the overall 4-wheel vehicle winners in 22 MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 races, 28 in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and 25 in the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.
SCORE points are based on starting, finishing, placement and number of official starters within each class.
With consistent Laughlin finishes of fourth and third along with a seventh in San Felipe, Steve Strobel, Clarks, Neb., has moved up to third in SCORE Overall points and remains third in SCORE Trophy Truck in the No. 94 Strobel Motorsports Ford F-150
In addition to season class point championships, the racers are also competing for part of the nearly $400,000 in cash purse and contingency postings each race. Drivers in the Pro car and truck classes are also attempting to earn prestigious SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards given to all car and truck class drivers who complete every required mile of the five-race season. Being presented by Toyota Motorsports for the 27th consecutive year, a total of 30 drivers are still in the hunt for the awards for the 2012 SCORE Desert Series after the first two rounds in the five-race series.
Racers are also competing for the annual SCORE Off-Roadsman of the Year awards, including the MasterCraft Safety SCORE Rookie of the Year award.

A good starting position is preferred on this race since it is so hard to pass for so many miles off the start (unless you pass them in the wash!). It is also tough because limited engine classes that start in front of Class 3 are slow up the hills right out of town, even though they are much faster when they get to the rough sections of the course.

SCORE MEDIA CONTACT: Dominic Clark,

May 16, 2012

Over 275 entries expected
Pre-running begins Friday on ‘brutally-rugged’ 450-mile
course for 44th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race

Round 4 of five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series to be held June 1-3 in Ensenada, Mexico; Entries from 32 States,
13 countries already including 39 SCORE Trophy Trucks; course map available at www.score-international.com

LOS ANGELES—With the release of the official course map, GPS files and course notes this week, pre-race activity increases significantly starting Friday when the world’s best desert racers officially begin their pre-running and course logistics activities for next month’s 44th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the second-oldest desert race in the world.
Round 4 of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series, the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, will feature over 275 entries, competing in 28 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs The popular event will be held May 31-June 3 in Ensenada, Mexico.
SCORE is in its 39th year as the world’s foremost desert racing organization. This race is traditionally one of the most popular events on the SCORE schedule, and most of the world’s best desert racers are expected to be in action at this year’s 44th anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the original desert race produced by SCORE on July 26, 1974.
With late entries accepted up to race morning in the 450-mile race, entries so far have come from 32 U.S. States from Hawaii to New York and the U.S. Territory of Guam along with the additional countries of Mexico, Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Finland, Germany, Guatemala, Ireland, Italy and Japan.
The green flag will drop for the race at 6 a.m. on Saturday (June 2) for the motorcycle and ATV classes in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, followed by the car and truck classes three hours after the last ATV at approximately 10 a.m. The elapsed-time race, with a 22-hour time limit for all competitors, will start and finish in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center on Boulevard Costero in the heart of Ensenada, leaving and returning into the city through the Arroyo Wash.
The talented field of veteran desert racers heading to Baja includes 22 defending class winners out of the 30 Pro and Sportsman classes that had finishers in last year’s race. Several, however, will be racing in different classes this year.
Last year’s overall race champions are among the early entries in this year’s race. The overall 4-wheel winner in 2011 was Las Vegas’ Bryce Menzies, who drives the No. 1 Red Bull Menzies Motorsports Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy Truck. Recording the fastest overall time while leading all motorcycles in last year’s race was Kendall Norman, Santa Barbara, Calif. and Quinn Cody, Buellton, Calif., on a Honda CRF450X while the fastest ATV was the Honda TRX450R team led by Brandon Brown, Umatilla, Ore. Norman will be riding solo this year on another Honda CRF450X while Cody will be the second rider for Mike Brown on a KTM 450SX-F. Menzies was also last year's SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck season point champion as well as being selected as the 2011 SCORE Rookie of the Year.
The rugged 450-mile course, which runs in a clockwise direction, resembles a deflating balloon, winding east to Ojos Negros, down to near San Felipe, back West to the Pacific Ocean below San Vicente and back north east through Santo Tomas on the way back to Ojos Negros and then Ensenada.
The only pre-running that will be allowed on the first 41.04 miles of the course will be outbound only and only on Thursday and Friday, May 31 and June 1. No inbound pre-running on the last 41.04 miles of the course will be allowed. Pre-running of the rest of the course will start and finish in the Ojos Negros area.
The four official race checkpoints, where all vehicles are required to make a quick stop, will be located at race mile 88.56 (Santa Catarina), rm219.72 (lower Matias wash), rm314.13 (Northwest of Colonet near the Pacific Ocean) and rm402.90 (West of Ojos Negros). The course will also have 52 virtual checkpoints. All vehicles are also required to run International Rally Consultants tracking devices and live vehicle tracking will be available during the race at www.racetheworld.net.
The course will also have five short, controlled-speed pavement sections that total 13.67 miles where the speed limit for the race vehicles is 60 miles per hour, subject to time penalties for exceeding that speed in those very limited pavement sections.
The featured SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850-horsepower, unlimited production trucks has a race-high 39 entries in this year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500.
Besides the three overall winners, among the other defending Pro class champions in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 entered this year to date are: Luke McMillin, El Cajon, Calif. (Class 1/2-1600), Donald Moss, Sacramento, Calif. (Class 3); Rudolfo Iribe, Tijuana, Mexico/Justin Matney, Bristol, Tenn. (Class 8); Sergio Salgado, Mexicali, Mexico (Class 10) Rafael Navarro IV, Temecula, Calif./Vic Bruckmann, Lemon Grove, Calif. (SCORE Lites), Matney (Class 11), Clyde Stacy, Bristol, Va./Eduardo Laguna, Mexicali, Mexico (Class 4); Mike Johnson, El Paso, Texas (Class 30); Jeff Kaplan, Thousand Oaks, Calif. (Class 40), Wayne Matlock, El Cajon, Calif. (Class 25) and Carl Vella, Ardsley, N.Y. (Class 26).
From the group above, Luke McMillin is racing in Class 1 this year as is Matney (with Stacy) and Laguna is driving in Class 6. Stacy is also driver of record for a team in Class 5-1600.
The Sportsman class winners returning from last year as of today are: Peter Lang, Santa Rosa, Calif. (SPT Buggy), Randy Swing, El Cajon, Calif. (SPT Truck) and Ulises Fierro, Tijuana, Mexico (SPT M/C>450cc). Lang has moved up to Class 6 this year and Fierro to Class 21.
Prominent Mexican racer Juan C. Lopez along with Cody Parkhouse, Mike Brown and Josh Frederick have all drew pole positions in their respective divisions for the race.
Mexico’s Lopez, who finished second in both Laughlin races and sixth in San Felipe in the No. 18 RPM OffRoad Chevy Silverado is second in SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck points. RPM OffRoad, based in Bristol, Tenn. leads the point standings in six classes after the first three races of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series. RPM has eight vehicles entered in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and as a team they have earned a total of 13 class wins the first three races of the season.
Besides Menzies and Lopez, among the other entries in SCORE Trophy Truck are current season point leader Rob MacCachren, the overall 4-wheel winner in this race in 1996 and a long list of other SCORE Trophy Truck winners in this event including Menzies (2011), Andy and Scott McMillin (2010), B.J. Baldwin (2008), Brian Collins (2006, 2007), Robby Gordon (2005), Alan Pflueger (2004) and Curt LeDuc (1995). Collins, Las Vegas will be the second driver for NASCAR Cup and Nationwide series driver Brendan Gaughan of Las Vegas, while LeDuc will be a driver for Nick Vanderwey, Phoenix.
Continuing to move out from the shadow of his father and his uncle’s experienced tracks, second-generation Southern California desert racer Cody Parkhouse of Long Beach, is fourth in SCORE overall points and continues to lead the unlimited Class 1 and will start first in his class in a Chevy-powered Jimco open-wheeled desert race car.
Brown, Murrieta, Calif., who ironically also drew the first start at the last SCORE race in San Felipe, will lead the motorcycle classes into the Baja desert with co-rider Quinn Cody, Los Olivos, Calif., on a factory-supported KTM 450SX-F.
A former SCORE Overall ATV point champion (2005), Josh Frederick, Moapa, Nev. and teammates Dillon Zimmerman, Murrieta, Calif. and Cesar Lopez, San Felipe, Mexico, will start first among the ATV classes in a Can-Am DS-450. Frederick won the first 2012 SCORE Baja race for ATVs in San Felipe.
While late entries will be accepted up to race morning, as of today, the Pro 4-Wheel vehicles classes with the most entries are: SCORE Trophy-Truck (39), the unlimited Class 1 (21), Class 10 (13) and Class 1/2-1600 (10).
Leading the pro motorcycle classes is the open Class 22 with nine entries to date.
Class 25 and Class 24 lead the ATV classes so far with six entries each and leading the Sportsman Motorcycles is the SPT M/C> class with 18 to date.
Following his third victory in the last five races and second in three races this season, Las Vegas’ All-America racer MacCachren has launched himself into the SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point lead after three of five races in the 2012 SCORE Desert Series.
With back to back overall wins in 2012 (Laughlin-Round 2 and San Felipe) after opening the season with a ninth-place finish in the first round in Laughlin, Nev., MacCachren, 47, has earned 177 championship points in the No. 20 Rockstar Energy/MasterCraft Racing Ford F-150.

Over 275 total entries expected
Near-record 40 SCORE Trophy Trucks ready to roar
at 44th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race

Round 4 of five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series to be held June 1-3 in Ensenada, Mexico; Entries from 34 States,
14 countries including last nine SCORE Trophy Truck winners; course map available at www.score-international.com

LOS ANGELES—Leading over 275 race vehicles into the Mexican desert during next weekend’s 44th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race will be a near-record 40 majestic SCORE Trophy Trucks, the marquee SCORE racing division--the unique class for high-tech, 850 horsepower unlimited production trucks. Included in that austere group are the last nine race winners and 11 of the 18 former race winners in the magical class that is like no other in all of motorsports.
Created in 1994 by SCORE CEO/President Sal Fish, SCORE Trophy Truck features the world’s best desert racers and the field this year includes the SCORE Trophy Truck division winners from the last nine years—Ryan Arciero, Foothill, Ranch, Calif. (2003), Alan Pflueger, Honolulu (2004), Robby Gordon, Charlotte, N.C. (2005), Brian Collins, Las Vegas (2006 and 2007), B.J. Baldwin, Las Vegas (2008), Rick D. Johnson (2009), Barstow, Calif., Andy McMillin/Scott McMillin (2010), National City, Calif. and Bryce Menzies (2011), Las Vegas. The two other former SCORE Trophy Truck winners in this race entered are Curt LeDuc, Cherry Valley, Calif. (1995) and Rob MacCachren, Las Vegas (1996).
As pre-running on the rugged 450-mile course continues in earnest this weekend for the second-oldest desert race in the world, Round 4 of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series, the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, will feature over 275 entries, competing in 36 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs. The event will be held May 31-June 3 in Ensenada, Mexico.
SCORE is in its 39th year as the world’s foremost desert racing organization. This race is traditionally one of the most popular events on the SCORE schedule, and most of the world’s best desert racers will be in action at this year’s 44th anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the original desert race produced by SCORE on July 26, 1974.
With late entries accepted up to race morning in the 450-mile race, entries so far have come from 34 U.S. States from Hawaii to New York and the U.S. Territory of Guam along with the additional countries of Mexico, Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Finland, Germany, Guatemala, Ireland, Italy, Japan and Spain.
The green flag will drop for the race at 6 a.m. on Saturday (June 2) for the motorcycle and ATV classes in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, followed by the car and truck classes three hours after the last ATV at approximately 10 a.m. The elapsed-time race, with one vehicle starting every 30 seconds and a 22-hour time limit for all competitors, will start and finish in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center on Boulevard Costero in the heart of Ensenada, leaving and returning into the city through the Arroyo Wash.
“I would like to think I have always been a visionary, but when I created the SCORE Trophy Truck racing division back in 1994, I honestly never dreamed it would develop to the heights that it has, both in terms of design and technology,” reflected Sal Fish, SCORE’s CEO/President since soon after it was founded in 1973. “For the first decade we never had more than 20 SCORE Trophy Trucks in a race, but it these last eight years the premier racing division in the entire sport has seen over the top growth. To have 40 SCORE Trophy Trucks entered for next week’s 44th anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 truly is a dream come true. And with the world’s best desert racers in the driver’s seats, any one the these amazing trucks could win the race.”
While the nine returning race winners provide a formidable field by themselves in SCORE Trophy Truck, the field includes 15 drivers who have combined for 65 wins out of the 104 races the class has run in its 18-plus-year history.
Leading the group of SCORE Trophy Truck race winners is all-time leader Tim Herbst of Las Vegas, who has 11 career race wins in the division and who will split driving in this year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500 with Larry Roeseler, Boulevard, Calif., in the No. 19 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Ford F-150. Roeseler has 16 class wins in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 including a race-record 11 overall wins and he also has three career SCORE Trophy Truck race victories.
In addition to Tim Herbst and Roeseler, the other drivers who have at least one SCORE Trophy Truck race win entered in next week’s race are: Gordon and MacCachren (each with nine career race wins), Collins (six), Andy McMillin (five), LeDuc and Baldwin (four each), Ryan Arciero and Scott McMillin (three each), Jesse Jones, Menzies, Pflueger and Gus Vildosola Sr. (two each) and single SCORE Trophy Truck race winners Johnson and Gus Vildosola Jr.
Among the SCORE Trophy Truck entries are 13 of the 18 all-time season point champions in the division. Herbst (1999, 2000, 2002 and 2003) again leads the way with four career SCORE Trophy Truck season point titles followed by two-time champions Baldwin (2006 and 2008), Gordon (1996 and 2009) and MacCachren (1994 and 2007). The other former season SCORE Trophy Truck champs entered in next week’s race are LeDuc (1997), Jones, Litchfield Park, Ariz. (2010) and Menzies (2011). Collins will be the second driver for NASCAR Cup and Nationwide series driver Brendan Gaughan of Las Vegas, while LeDuc will be the second driver for Nick Vanderwey, Phoenix.
The talented field of veteran desert racers heading to Baja includes 22 defending class winners out of the 30 Pro and Sportsman classes that had finishers in last year’s race. Several, however, will be racing in different classes this year.
Last year’s overall race champions are also entered in this year’s race. The overall 4-wheel winner in 2011 was Las Vegas’ Bryce Menzies, who drives the No. 1 Red Bull Menzies Motorsports Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy Truck. Recording the fastest overall time while leading all motorcycles in last year’s race was Kendall Norman, Santa Barbara, Calif. and Quinn Cody, Buellton, Calif., on a Honda CRF450X while the fastest ATV was the Honda TRX450R team led by Brandon Brown, Umatilla, Ore. Norman will be riding solo this year on another Honda CRF450X while Cody will be the second rider for Mike Brown on a KTM 450SX-F.
The rugged 450-mile course, which runs in a clockwise direction, resembles a deflating balloon, winding east to Ojos Negros, down to near San Felipe, back West to the Pacific Ocean below San Vicente and back north east through Santo Tomas on the way back to Ojos Negros and then Ensenada.
The only pre-running that will be allowed on the first 41.04 miles of the course will be outbound only and only on Thursday and Friday, May 31 and June 1. No inbound pre-running on the last 41.04 miles of the course will be allowed. Pre-running of the rest of the course will start and finish in the Ojos Negros area.
The four official race checkpoints, where all vehicles are required to make a quick stop, will be located at race mile 88.56 (Santa Catarina), rm219.72 (South San Matias Wash), rm314.13 (Northwest of Colonet near the Pacific Ocean) and rm402.90 (West of Ojos Negros). The course will also have 52 virtual checkpoints. All vehicles are also required to run International Rally Consultants tracking devices and live vehicle tracking will be available during the race at www.racetheworld.net.
The course will also have five short controlled-speed pavement sections that total 13.67 miles where the speed limit for the race vehicles is 60 miles per hour, subject to time penalties for exceeding that speed in those very limited pavement sections.
The featured SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850-horsepower, unlimited production trucks has a race-high 39 entries in this year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500.
Besides the three overall winners, among the other defending Pro class champions in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 entered this year to date are: Steven Eugenio, Alpine, Calif./Adam Pfankuch, Oceanside, Calif. (Class 1), Luke McMillin, El Cajon, Calif. (Class 1/2-1600), Donald Moss, Sacramento, Calif. (Class 3); Arturo Alvarez, Mexicali, Mexico (Class 7), Rudolfo Iribe, Tijuana, Mexico/Justin Matney, Bristol, Tenn. (Class 8 and Class 11); Sergio Salgado, Mexicali, Mexico (Class 10) Rafael Navarro IV, Temecula, Calif./Vic Bruckmann, Lemon Grove, Calif. (SCORE Lites), Clyde Stacy, Bristol, Va./Eduardo Laguna, Mexicali, Mexico (Class 4); Mike Johnson, El Paso, Texas (Class 30); Jeff Kaplan, Thousand Oaks, Calif. (Class 40), Wayne Matlock, El Cajon, Calif. (Class 25) and Carl Vella, Ardsley, N.Y. (Class 26).
From the group above, the Eugenio/Pfankuch team is racing in SCORE Trophy Truck this year (this will be their first race in their new No. 11 Ford F-150), Luke McMillin is racing in Class 1 as is Matney (with Stacy) and Laguna is driving in Class 6. Stacy is also driver of record for a team in Class 5-1600.
The Sportsman class winners returning from last year as of today are: Peter Lang, Santa Rosa, Calif. (SPT Buggy), Randy Swift, El Cajon, Calif. (SPT Truck), Arnulfo Verdugo, Tijuana, Mexico (SPT M/C<450cc) and Ulises Fierro, Tijuana, Mexico (SPT M/C>450cc). Lang has moved up to Class 6 this year and both Verdugo and Fierro to Class 21.
Prominent Mexican racer Juan C. Lopez (SCORE Trophy Truck) along with Cody Parkhouse (Class 1), Mike Brown (Motorcycles) and Josh Frederick (ATVs) have all drawn pole positions in their respective divisions for the race.
Mexico’s Lopez, who finished second in both Laughlin races and sixth in San Felipe in the No. 18 RPM OffRoad Chevy Silverado is second in SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck points. RPM OffRoad, based in Bristol, Tenn. leads the point standings in six classes after the first three races of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series. RPM has eight vehicles entered in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and as a team they have earned a total of 13 class wins the first three races of the season.
While late entries will be accepted up to race morning, as of today, the Pro 4-Wheel vehicles classes with the most entries are: SCORE Trophy Truck (40), the unlimited Class 1 (21), Class 1/2-1600 (16) and Class 10 (14).
Leading the pro motorcycle classes is the open Class 22 with nine entries to date.
Class 25 and Class 24 lead the ATV classes so far with seven entries each and leading the Sportsman classes is the SPT M/C>450cc motorcycle class with 19 to date.
Following his third victory in the last five races and second in three races this season, Las Vegas’ All-America racer MacCachren has launched himself into the SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point lead after three of five races in the 2012 SCORE Desert Series.
With back to back overall wins in 2012 (Laughlin-Round 2 and San Felipe) after opening the season with a ninth-place finish in the first round in Laughlin, Nev., MacCachren, 47, has earned 177 championship points in the No. 20 Rockstar Energy/MasterCraft Racing Ford F-150. He is not only the SCORE Overall point leader, he is also at the top of the leaderboard in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division.The recent San Felipe victory was also MacCachren’s fourth in the last six SCORE races.
In San Felipe, MacCachren also earned the 75 all-time SCORE Baja overall race win for noted tired manufacturer BFGoodrich. BFG Tires have now been the tire of choice for the overall 4-wheel vehicle winners in 22 MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 races, 28 in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and 25 in the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.
SCORE points are based on starting, finishing, placement and number of official starters within each class.
For the fifth straight year and just the fifth time in the 44-year history of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race, the colorful pre-race Manufacturer’s Midway and Contingency, the start and finish line will all be located in the heart of Ensenada, Mexico on Boulevard Costero adjacent to the historic Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center. It will be the fifth time in race history that both the pre-race activities and the finish will be held on this historic boulevard.
The SCORE Manufacturer’s Midway will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, June 1 on Blvd Costero. Racer registration will again be held in the Grand Ballroom of the San Nicolas Hotel. Registration hours will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 31 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday June 1.
The awards celebration will be held poolside at the San Nicolas Hotel on Sunday, June 3 at 11 a.m.
In addition to season class point championships, the racers are also competing for part of the nearly $400,000 in cash purse and contingency postings each race. Drivers in the Pro car and truck classes are also attempting to earn prestigious SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards given to all car and truck class drivers who complete every required mile of the five-race season. Being presented by Toyota Motorsports for the 27th consecutive year, a total of 31 drivers are still in the hunt for the awards for the 2012 SCORE Desert Series after the first two rounds in the five-race series.
Racers are also competing for the annual SCORE Off-Roadsman of the Year awards, including the MasterCraft Safety SCORE Rookie of the Year award. All categories, except Engine Builder and Original Buggy Chassis Manufacturer, will be determined by public on-line voting while Engine and Buggy awards are determined by season points.

Smile Baja 500 2012

We notice Bill Frey has changed from Jeepspeed Class 1700 to Class 3 for upcoming Baja 500.

Why dont you guys just update your rules to include the 30 Jeeps that have raced with us this year so far, otherwise Class 3 will remain as stagnant as it has been for years. Our basic rules are stock wb =/- 2" max 116' (4 door Wrangler), 2wd or 4wd,

Is class 3 a SUV Class or a vintage Class?

Todays SUVs are longer, faster and wider. It is time to change if you want entries to increase. The only time you have had a decent entry number in recent years is when you have allowed some Jeepspeeds to run with you.

We love Class 3 and had raced them since 1989 but have left the fold recently because of stagnation.

Good luck to all at Baja 500

With 116" wheelbase, why not just enter class 8? I had a 116" wheelbase 4wd class 8 that I won the baja 1000 in and it would totally smoke any class 3. Wheelbase is everything when you don't have much.
