SCORE 2021 Race Schedule Continues The SCORE World Desert Championship is back for 2021 with our full four race schedule, which once again includes the newest race in the 54 years of Baja racing, the SCORE Baja 400. In this issue we review the Inaugural race from 2019, which debuted another challenging, longer distance race, replacing the former year’s two-day shorter multiple lap course race that took place in September. This new race format was in response from the SCORE racers preferring the traditional longer-range courses that are legendary in Baja. This race will once again be operating under COVID Health protocols which SCORE has successfully completed for our last four races, working with the Mexican authorities to provide not only a safe environment for the racers but for the Baja population base as well. The SCORE Safety information exchange continues to be a priority for SCORE to provide to the racers and off-road performance enthusiasts and we are very fortunate to be able to share the latest research from Dr. David Ferguson, Assistant Professor for the Dept of Kinesiology at Michigan State University. This research studied many forms of motorsports and the effect of dehydration and racer performance. Read more about their findings regarding Hydration systems vs. just the bottled water stops and more. Finally, after many months of chasing, SCORE Journal Editor, Dan Sanchez, was allowed to spend time with another historical vehicle, the 1972 Olds Cutless (look-a-like) Banshee! This was another creation from the legendary Vic Hickey and was a game changer, like the Baja Boot he created earlier. See the amazing details of this trend setting design along with great insight from the current owner, who is none other than SCORE legend, John Swift, from the FORD / BFG Rough Rider fame and more!
