SCORE Continues Momentum It is hard to believe it has been a year since the SEMA SCORE Baja 1000 Experience and Qualifier and the actual 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 1000 Anniversary race event! A lot has happened in this time period, which has been a continuation of the SCORE development programs initiated over the past few years. We increased the SCORE San Felipe 250 race miles into the 300 range, and we also made the 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500 the longest and most difficult race for this event. It was the most challenging ever. Afterwards, we announced a totally new SCORE Baja 400 for 2019, keeping the desires for the SCORE racer base for SCORE’s signature and globally recognized, long range Desert Racing race courses. The results of our efforts have been a large increase in racer and sponsor participation, media coverage, and exposure for every race for 2018. This issue we have the opportunity to showcase the latest SCORE race event, the Lucerna Hotels & Resorts Tijuana 22nd SCORE Desert Challenge and review the record number of participants that took on this unique SCORE multi-lap, two-day race event. We also introduced new SCORE sponsor, the Lucerna Hotel & Resorts, facilities as the “Official Hotel” for the SCORE World Desert Challenge series. Jeep has had major involvement with SCORE Baja efforts in the early decades and we review these special race activities and the contributions of JEEP, that might have been lost in the history books. We talk to the top drivers involved and focus on their top tier efforts, special moments, and involvement in SCORE’s historical building block years. Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Famer, Curt LeDuc, provides insight into his time spent with this iconic brand and the magnitude and results of this OEM manufacturer, while Casey Currie reviews the current factory effort in the form of his Hammer Class domination. Enjoy the issue! Jim
