A 350-Mile Course Traditionally the SCORE San Felipe 250 is considered a short-distance race, but as the course has been extended over the years, racers will face a 350-mile course that is now the longest in its 33-year history. The starting line will be on the Malecon, located in the center of San Felipe. The finish line will also be in the same location giving spectators a great view of the racers and teams that will set the stage for the rest of the SCORE World Challenge season. The San Felipe 250 course typically runs over high-speed dry lake beds and winds through heavy rock-strewn canyons and trails. Some of the course is routed along dirt roads and through four of Baja’s most infamous washes in Las Cuevitas, Matomi, Huatamote and Amarillo. Best Race Experience Contingency is also one of the pre-race festivities that is part of the legendary experience at the SCORE San Felipe 250. Contingency day is now a two-day event happening on the Malecon April 4th and 5th. SCORE Trophy Truck, Class 1 and Class 10 vehicle Contingency day will be April 5th while the Motorcycle, UTV and the remainder of the truck and buggy classes will be held the day before, on April 4th. Contingency days are one of the best opportunities for fans to meet racers and experience the vehicles up close. SCORE’s official announcer Rat Sult, will also be interviewing racers during the event that is broadcast on the large SCOREVision screen. Race Day starts early with all motorcycle and quad classes leaving the starting line on April 6th at 6:20 am. The schedule of classes leaving the start is subject to change, so make sure to ask a SCORE official for the latest updates if you want to catch your favorite team leaving with the green flag. Four-wheel classes are scheduled to leave the starting line at 9:30 am, with SCORE Trophy Trucks leaving first, followed by Trophy Truck Legends, Trophy Truck Spec, Class 1 and the remaining four-wheel classes. After all the vehicles leave the starting line, spectators can log onto SCORE’s Live Streaming and Tracing at to see who’s out in front, and to determine when the first vehicles will make it back to the finish line on the Malecon, to win the race.
