It was here, for the first time, that Trophy Truck, Class-1, and Trophy Truck Spec divisions had to qualify for starting position. Coming off the 2016 SCORE Baja 1000 victory, Rob MacCachren qualified for the starting position in the Trophy Truck division, while Mike Malloy led the field for Class-1 vehicles, and John Langley started the field for the Trophy Truck Spec division. Most racers, especially MacCachren, don't like to start out in front because it's difficult to set the pace and mistakes are made. True to point, MacCachren ended up with a flat tire, which put second place starter Cameron Steele in the lead for most of the race. MacCachren finally caught up after Steele's Trophy Truck had a rear axle break only three miles from the finish line, and had to have it towed in to finish in seventh place. 2017 YE AR IN REVIEW
