By all accounts, the MasterCraft Racing / Rockstar Energy Drink team was going to be a force to be reckoned with at the 2010 Tecate SCORE Baja 500.  With three SCORE Trophy Trucks starting in the top ten and incredibly strong finishes at the MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250, expectations were justifiably high.  Unfortunately, things did not go as planned.  “That is why we race,” explained a sage Robbie Pierce, CEO of MasterCraft Safety.  “If we already knew who was going to  take home the victory, it wouldn’t be very exciting.
