The Good, The Bad and SCORE
By: Gary Newsome The Good: The storm damages from at least four tropical storms this season are being overcome, north of Los Cabos. The heavy reconstruction, generators, desal plants, sewage and water systems are well underway, but not completed in Los Cabos. Thats the Good! The Bad: The bugs are insane south of Ensenada! Super aggresive flies and billions of no-seeums, gnats and mosquitos. This pest problem will last until mid December, throughout all of Baja Mexico.
The Baja South Health Department reports of thousands of cases of dengue fever. A common scourge, after tropical storms, vectored by the outrageous numbers of mosquitos throughout the state. The Even Worse: The Red Cross throughout Baja Mexico is collapsing. The READER in San Diego reports that Tijuana and Ensenadas Red Cross has gone out of business. In San Felipe, the press in Mexico is reporting, the Red Cross there has been out of business for months! In Baja South, the situation is worse. Unfunded by the Baja South government since the 2008 economic collapse, the Red Cross does not exist in any service fashion. One ambulance serves the entire city of the capital of the state, La Paz, over 210,000 residents! Accident victims are being left on the streets. Emergency room visits can now become fatal, if you don't have proper insurance and I.D.
SCORE The GPS Files are out of hand! Dan McMillin reports, his files have needed changes from three versions. The course is poorly marked with one week to go before qualifying. Trophy Truck and Class 1 Teams are on the ropes if they want to pre-run and go to qualify for starting positions in Vegas, next week. MORE LOADING>>>

Interview with Ivan Stewart today, more team news, pre-runner sightings and race course conditions.
*BAJA 1000 race course UPDATED! no time limit set yet, but it will be set according to a 25mph average over the final length of the course, total mileage is 1275 race miles, right now. *Dan McMillin checks in: "Quick recap of our pre run. We did Vizcaino to La Paz. Didnt see any silt leaving Vizcaino. But that was a Last Friday. Just tall grass with some gotchas. Vizcaino to San Ignacio, very rocky with soft sand. First 30 miles leaving San Ignacio may be the toughest section of the
entire course. From the turn off off the hwy LEAVING San Ignacio to back
on he hwy to El Datil. El Datil to La Purisima is the same, very fast with some hurricane damage. North Loreto to Loreto is tight and technical with water and rocks. Turns into a fun wash into the Dump and out of it. Wash to San Javier Rd is very fun, Lots of water but all rockbed. San Javier road is very good. Paved with some damage. San Javier mission to Hwy 22 is fast. Race mile 1085 to 1150, whoops whoops whoops. Last 100 miles to La Paz was freshly marked, and was different from
what our GPS read. SCORE has released so many versions of the GPS file,
it's frustrating. Make sure you have the "latest" version but it's
probably gonna change when you're down here, like it did on us. Marking
is good but inconsistent. Too much relying on the GPS and not physical
markers. SCORE should place a physical marker so you can see one to the
other, in line of sight. No where in the rules does it say you need a
"Just pre-ran from RM915
to finish. We have to send a big thank you and congratulations to the entire
SCORE team, RN, Jose Grijalva & Oscar Ramos, as well as local authorities
for all their great job making the race possible to come down to the south.
Thanks and congrats to the whole BFG mapping team too!
The entire trail from San Isidro turn off to Loreto has pretty much been
graded! A lot of rocks and stuff, but everything is passable and we pre-ran in
a 2WD F150.
Same for the section from San Javier to Maria Auxiliadora, where the locals
were working with D8s making some REALLY deep arroyos passable.
The Score crew was out in a couple of Polaris, and did a great job marking to
San Carlos more or less.
Be very careful once you come off the highway at Maria Auxiliadora, as it there
is some very deep and sticky mud there... when we went through, it had just
dried up enough to make a comforting looking hard to layer to allow you to get
Those of you asking about the silts around Santa Fe... it bypasses them, as it
goes up to the highway at Highway 1 KM111, and drops back into El Conejo at Highway 1 KM80. On
race day, you will have to be VERY careful on this sections, as the locals
always use this trail to go and see the race, and there aren't a lot of options
for them to use another access.
From Conquista Agraria it is pretty much 80% new trails for the Baja 1000,
Definitely, it is going to be a tough and challenging Baja 1000, and Kudos to
all involved it making the race down south a reality after such a big hit as
