51 S T SCORE BA JA 500- PREVIEW SCORE JOURNAL 31 THE SCORE BAJA 500 COURSE According to SCORE President and Race Director Jose Grijalva, this year's SCORE Baja 500 will be challenging, and stretches across 487.11 miles. Starting at the Lucas Oil Off-Road stadium, the course runs in a clockwise direction, allowing racers to experience all of Baja's scenery but with technical sections that will make it difficult. "Racers will experience a scenic but also a demanding and technical SCORE Baja desert race course that includes some of the best Northern Baja racing," said Grijalva. "The course even runs on several areas seldom or never used before by SCORE." According to Grijalva, racers will have to pass four physical checkpoints located at or near Nuevo Junction, San Matias, Col. Vicente Guerrero, and Santo Tomas. It will run up the infamous Summit, over Mike's Sky Rancho road, as well as through legendary washes that include San Carlos, Santo Domingo and Erendira. SJ
