2018 is a Rap! What a year! SCORE continued to push through to the next level for 2018. We started the year off by expanding the SCORE San Felipe 250 to a 319 mile adventure, adding even more of a challenge to this already legendary course. We experienced another historical milestone with the 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500 anniversary race and saw a 40 percent increase in participants the second year of the Tijuana SCORE Desert Challenge with an added new race sponsor, the Lucerna Hotel & Resorts to this race event. We finished the year with the world-renowned SCORE Baja 1000, which provided three long overdue accomplishments, among many, with the Pro Moto 7x team of Justin Morgan, Mark Samuels, and Justin Jones not only winning the Pro Moto division but the overall win for the SCORE Baja 1000! Cameron Steele’s perseverance paid off twofold in 2018 with his first SCORE Trophy Truck class win at the Lucerna Tijuana SCORE Desert Challenge and then a stellar performance attaining this position for the Granddaddy of all races, the SCORE Baja 1000! The UTV classes continued to grow and now accomplished another landmark with Wayne Matlock’s UTV Overall Championship but also accomplishing the major feat of, for the first time, the number 1 overall points achiever for a SCORE season in a UTV! Our final function for this amazing season was the 2018 SCORE World Desert Championship Awards tribute to all the participants who made it to the podium more times than their competition. You will see this unbelievable celebration that had nearly 600 of top teams, dignitaries and SCORE legends in attendance! Additional special segments included a new SCORE Legacy Award celebrating the contributions of Jerry Herbst to SCORE’s development, off-road motorsports, and in mentoring his son’s Ed, Tim and Troy’s legendary performance in their SCORE World Desert Championship racing careers. The second special of the evening was the 25th Anniversary of the now iconic Trophy Truck Unlimited Truck class, where we were able to showcase and recognize the contributions that all of you made to this now marque class for SCORE and off-road racing. Stay tuned for 2019 as we continue to grow the SCORE World Desert Championship in a big way! Enjoy the issue.
