Some families, like the Ampudia's of Mexico, are very popular with the locals as they have participated within SCORE since 1986. In recent times, carrying on the Ampudia name within SCORE is Aaron Ampudia, who now at 23, won the 1/2 1600 class championship in 2015. His driving ability and technique allowed Ampudia to win nearly every race of the SCORE season, topping it off with the SCORE Baja 1000 win last November. While he celebrates his accomplishment, Ampudia is quick to recognize the traditions and lessons his family have passed down to him over the years. "My father Rodrigo started racing back in 1986 with his brother (my uncle) Rogerio," said Ampudia. "They were racing in a 5-1600 and eventually managed to move up all the way to Trophy Truck class. My brothers and I grew up in Ensenada following my dad and uncle to all of their races, where eventually my AMPUDIA MOVED INTO SCORE'S 1/2 1600 CLASS, WHERE HE BEGAN TO GET NOTICED WINNING MANY RACES OVER A THREE-YEAR PERIOD. oldest brother Rodrigo Jr. got the opportunity to race a 1/2 1600 when he was 16 years old. When he became focused on racing in a different series, my brother Alan and I started racing trophy karts and then got the opportunity to race a 1/2 1600."
