SCORE BAJA 500 PREVIEW RACERS SET TO TAKE ON THE 48TH SCORE BAJA 500 T he SCORE Baja 500 enters its 48th Anniversary as one of the most iconic desert races in the world. This will be the second race of the 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship, following the SCORE San Felipe 250. In 2016, the SCORE Baja 500 will be held in Ensenada, Baja California Norte. This year will mark the 43rd time the race has started in Ensenada, and the 39th time it has finished in town. Spectators and fans who watch the race from the city will get to see the exciting start and dramatic finish from one single location. The race got its start in 1969 and was officially run by SCORE International in 1974. The course is approximately 500 miles winding around a variety of terrain on Mexico's Peninsula. Typically, SCORE expects nearly 250 off-road racers from around the world to take part in the race. Some strive to win while others are content to conquer the Baja peninsula and finish the race, happy that they competed in one of the most grueling competitions that test the will of both man and vehicle.
