A BIT OF BAJA IN VEGAS The 2018 SEMA SCORE BaJa Experience Presented by BFGoodrich Tires By Dan Sanchez Photos by Get Some Photo and Dan Sanchez Weeks before the 51st SCORE Baja 1000 takes place, the automotive aftermarket industry gets to experience Baja from the SEMA SCORE Baja Experience Presented by BFGoodrich Tires, at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The annual trade show for the automotive aftermarket and racing industry, ran October 30th through November 2nd, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, where SCORE had a 70,000 square-foot exhibit. SEMA Show attendees were fascinated by the display of SCORE Trophy Trucks in the exhibit, as well as having an opportunity to meet and get autographs from SCORE racers in person. The SEMA SCORE Baja Experience Presented by BFGoodrich Tires also had numerous displays from a variety of off-road racing manufacturers, including King Shocks, Raceline Wheels, and others, offering attendees a good understanding of the components that allow these vehicles to blast through the desert of Baja at high speeds. BFGoodrich Tires had a special “garage” section within the exhibit, that featured various builders in the process of creating vehicles. The Hoonigan section was busy building a Baja Bug, while Rennsport was busy building a Chenoweth buggy in the next booth. BFGoodrich Tires and SCORE have a long-standing relationship that spans more than 41 years. The tire company has earned more overall and class wins in SCORE Baja racing than any other tire manufacturer. Cruise To The Las Vegas Motor Speedway On Tuesday, October 31st, the SEMA SCORE Baja Experience Presented by BFGoodrich Tires roared to life as 31 SCORE Trophy Trucks started their engines and proceeded to line up in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the SEMA Show, and cruised down Las Vegas Boulevard to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. SEMA Show attendees were delighted at the sound of the vehicles as they exited the convention center and were guided by Las Vegas police towards the speedway to participate in the SCORE Baja 1000 Qualifying Presented by BFGoodrich Tires.
