51st SCORE BaJa 500 delivers New Location, Format and Challenges. The 51st SCORE Baja 500 is now in the history books and presented a new experience for Racers, Fans and even for the SCORE Staff. Ensenada, The Off-Road Capitol for Off-Road Motorsports, provided once again the perfect stage to take this year’s SCORE Baja 500 to the oceanfront race facilities at the Estero Beach Resort & Hotel. This issue will illustrate the new look and feel of this event with the great photography and video you expect in the pages of the SCORE Journal digital editions. The side by side vehicle & bike starting format and the viewing opportunities now available with the bleacher structures, gave the fans a first-hand look at the racing action not normally seen at the start and finish line activities. We are also finalizing the 50th Anniversary hardbound commemorative SCORE Baja 500 book project soon and in this process, we were also very fortunate to have the opportunity for an exclusive photo shoot on one of the most iconic race vehicles ever designed for Baja racing, The Baja Boot. After being built by Vic Hickey, owned by Steve McQueen, in museums and in private collections on the east coast for years, the vehicle and its history are being rediscovered with a modern version scheduled to be released at the end of the year. This was the overall winner of the inaugural 1969 Baja 500 when it was piloted by Bud Ekins and Guy Jones. See this amazing race vehicle in its original glory in the pages of this issue. Enjoy the issue and see you at the races. Jim
