SCORE RACERS WERE ON HAND SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS FOR SEMA ATTENDEES well as asphalt, like they do in Baja," says Jim Ryan, Marketing Director at SCORE. The qualifying event began at 2pm on November 4th, with a press conference at the SCOREvision center stage where each of the Baja 1000 drivers were introduced and the qualifying order was announced. By 4pm, 20 SCORE Unlimited Trophy Trucks and four Class 1 open-wheel race cars roared to life and paraded through the SEMA Show grounds before departing over to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The 3.6- mile qualifying course was designed to simulate the same type of terrain the racers experience in Baja. Once the dirt settled, Robbie Gordon was able to post the fastest qualifying time, covering the course in three minutes, 52.902 seconds with an average speed of 55.65 miles per hour in his No. 77 Speed Energy Gordon Motorsports Chevy CK1500. For his efforts, Gordon received the Method Race Wheels $2,500 Fastest Qualifier Award. Rob MacCachren, Bryce Menzies and B.J. Baldwin broke the four- minute barrier during qualifying. MacCachren was second in posting 3:54.014 (55.38mph) in the No. 11 Rockstar Energy MacCachren Motorsports Ford F-150, Menzies was third in 3:59.514 (54.11mph) in the No. 70 Red Bull Menzies Motorsports Ford F-150 and Baldwin was fourth in 3:59.886 (54.03mph) in the No. 1 Monster Energy Baldwin Motorsports Chevy Silverado. "We are excited and honored to have such an iconic group within the off-road industry join us at the SEMA Show," said Chris Kersting, SEMA President and CEO. "The Baja 1000 represents the top tier in the industry. Its racers and partners will bring to the SEMA Show an unsurpassed level of talent that we are looking forward to seeing." SCORE's involvement with the SEMA Show and all the activities are highlighted on CBS Sports Network and online on Dirt Live HD. SCORE will again be present in a big way during the 2015 SEMA Show, with more desert racing excitement, race vehicles, drivers, teams and media coverage. SJ 034 SCORE JOURNAL
