Making History At the 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500 The SCORE racing community, the off-road industry, and our global fan base have yet another historic landmark event to celebrate, with the 50th running of the SCORE Baja 500 taking place May 30 through June 3! This race is considered by many as the “perfect race” with the course providing the most challenging one day race experience. It combines the sprint elements of the SCORE San Felipe 250 with the longer distance endurance of what the SCORE Baja 1000 is world famous for, but without the tremendous logistical commitments. This year’s course route has really reflected this belief with SCORE producing the longest Baja 500 course ever developed, a challenging 542-miles of desert, coastal terrain and mountains. Special shout out once again to all the sponsors that have believed what the SCORE World Desert Championship now provides for their brands, team exposure, and the continuing effort to grow the fan base to become participants, so we can keep celebrating the next landmark anniversaries years from now. These top sponsors currently include Monster Energy, King Shocks, RACELINE Wheels and this season latest sponsors, Polaris and VP Racing Fuels. Special recognition once again goes to BFGoodrich Tires for its more than 42-years of involvement with SCORE International. The company has demonstrated its commitment to the increased growth of the series with the Title Sponsorship of the past 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 1000 in 2017, and its continued level of commitment with the SCORE Baja 500 as it is now known as the 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500 anniversary race! As always, none of this would place without the tremendous amount of time that has been devoted by the SCORE team from management, race operations, timing, registration, race logistics, and the hundreds of volunteers that make all this happen. Enjoy the Issue and hope to see you at the race! Jim
