Ford Raptor Decade of Dominance The SCORE Baja races have generated many legendary occasions in the off-road motorsports & performance lifestyles categories, product technology development, endurance testing, and ground zero for the beginning of the light truck accessory aftermarket. All of these activities have produced legendary drivers, teams, and company branding programs that have word-wide impact. One of the highpoints of these actions was the development of the FORD Raptor, which was built for the world-wide stage of the SCORE Baja 1000. Introducing the Off-Road Motorsports image and technology and the SCORE International Baja racing series as the ultimate endorsement of “Baja Proven” to the general masses, was a huge jump. Perhaps one of the biggest revelations was the geographical sales areas that took place across the U.S., from the Northeast, Midwest, Southern states and Texas and of course the western states region. The SCORE Journal team has done a great job with this section reviewing the beginning 2008 SCORE Baja 1000 race effort that led to the 2010 Raptor launch, along with all the model variations to present day, and a great accessory parts review for Raptor and F-150 owners to plan their next project upgrades. The SCORE World Desert Championship comprises many iconic classes. In this issue we look at the first power class for trucks, the Class 8, Thunder Trucks of the Desert. This was one of the premier classes of the mid-70’s to early 90’s that led into the current day marque SCORE Trophy Truck class. We take a look back at the trucks and technology that help put this class into legendary status, as we spotlight their overall class and race wins, plus the teams that made it all happen. Enjoy the issue.
