 e1353346403 MasterCraft Racing Wins The Battle Against The Desert, But Baja Wins The War“Every mile of every race there are situations that can end your day,” Rob MacCachren reflects from La Paz.  “Crashes, fires, booby traps… Baja demonstrates this every year.”  With 1121 treacherous miles to cover in the 45th Annual SCORE Baja 1000 and three dozen Trophy Trucks fighting to etch their names into history, there is little margin for error.  Unfortunately for MacCachren and his teammates campaigning the No. 20 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck, luck was not on their side.  Read More→
e1321042836 Rockstar Energy Drinks Rob MacCachren Hopes No. 20 + No. 30 Equal No. 1 At The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000

The paved highways are considered a restricted area because use of the highways is subject to permission by the Mexican Federal Highway Police.”  SCORE International is required to strictly enforce the above rule in order to stay in compliance with their permits and race licenses from the government of Baja California.
