Women Power! Women Competitors of SCORE have long been involved with Baja racing and have made a profound impact on the history and contributions to the SCORE World Desert Championship series. Initial pioneers such as Jean Calvin, who competed in 1970, and Mary McGee, as one of the pioneers in 1975, rode the SCORE Baja 500 solo! Since then, it was estimated that 62 women put on a helmet and competed in the 2017 SCORE Baja 1000 50th anniversary race! Notable entries included Kristen Matlock, Shelby Reid, Jessie Combs, Heidi Steele, Chelsea Magness, Viry Felix and Christine Giampaoli Zonca. In recent years, Sara Price, Erica Sachs, Shelby Hall, Elizabeth Karcz, Paige Sohren, Julie Boyer and more also came to compete. Additional involvement that needs to be recognized are all with women working as Team Managers and coordinating and directing team logistics and management, which is taking place from the premier SCORE Trophy Truck class to the first time Sportsman divisions. They make things happen! This issue we introduce some the latest group of women who participated in the 2021 SCORE San Felipe 250 and finished. Read more about their challenges, accomplishments and future goals in this issue. It was exciting to see the legendary Parnelli Jones and his Big Oly Bronco making history once again with the big buzz from the automotive and general press during the Mecum Indy Auction event. Parnelli’s, son PJ, and even Walker Evans, were there watching this iconic off-road, game changing vehicle cross the auction block and set a new category record of a $1.87 million dollar hammer price! This gave us the opportunity to not only showcase Big Oly once again, but also to share the interview we did with Parnelli at his Torrance facility for the 50th SCORE Baja 1000 commemorative book project. Enjoy and See You at the Races. Jim
