Racing for the 54th SCORE Baja 1000 is ready to get underway Thursday morning. The final tally of entries rings in at 302. For the last two days technical inspection and contingency was held in Ensenada. The course mileage for the race tops out at 1226 miles starting in Ensenada and finishes in La Paz. There is a 50-hour time limit to finish. Some of the fastest vehicles will finish in 22 hours.
Many teams have spent countless days and hours pre-running for race. Bryce Menzies and Andy McMillin will be the first Trophy Truck off the line followed by the super team of Luke McMillin and Rob MacCachren. Both are expected to be locked in all-out battle to the finish along with 27 other trucks.
This year’s start line will be once again closed off to spectators and SCORE will be following COVID safety protocols.
