TORTURE AND TRIUMPH BY SCORE JOURNAL STAFF PHOTOS BY GET SOME PHOTO RACE TEAMS CONVERGE ON THE 54TH SCORE BAJA 500 54th Presented by O f the 259 teams that started the BFGoodrich Tires 54th SCORE Baja 500 Presented by 4 Wheel Parts, only 67-percent finished the race. It wasn't the hot temperatures or the distance of the 463.2-mile course, but the technical aspects of it that cut the competition down to only 174 finishers. The largest classes included the SCORE Trophy Trucks (and SCORE TT Legends) with 31 competitors, and the SCORE Trophy Truck Spec class with 32, making this race a spectacular show for SCORE fans who love the roar of these vehicles crossing the Baja desert. This race was the second in the 2022 SCORE World Desert Championship Series, after the SCORE San Felipe 250 had its share of fast-paced winners, including Luke McMillin who ran a fast pace to win the race in the SCORE Trophy Truck Class. McMillin was challenged by Bryce Menzies, who was just as fast, but McMillin had a more "perfect" race to win it. This set up a start to the SCORE Baja 500 with two of the fastest SCORE Trophy Truck racers to date. It was the same in Class 1, where the Wilson Motorsports team looked like they had an advantage with Kyle Quinn and Brad Wilson starting at the front of the pack in first and third. In other classes, top racers who finished first in San Felipe got to start first in Ensenada. But the Baja desert had other plans, shaking up many of the top competitors with difficult terrain and obstacles that wreaked havoc on their vehicles. Read our full coverage of each class in the following pages. BFGOODRICH TIRES 54TH SCORE BA JA 500 PRESENTED BY 4 WHEEL PARTS REVIEW SCORE JOURNAL 12
