March 4 UPDATE
The pre-race Manufacturer’s Midway and tech inspection of the vehicles in the race will be held on Friday (March 8) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the picturesque Malecon, flanked by the Sea of Cortez on one side and the popular restaurants and night clubs of San Felipe on the other. Racer registration will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday (March 8) at the Hacienda Don Jesus Hotel. Open to the public for the first time, the pre-race mandatory racer’s meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday (March 8) at the plaza in the heart of the Malecon.
THE MAIN COURSE
The spectacular 254.0-mile race course runs in a counter-clockwise direction and starts and finishes at the landmark San Felipe arches. The race course goes north of Highway 3 for one of the first times ever in this race, covering over 100 miles up to the south end of Laguna Salada and back. Another major change in this year’s course is that the Zoo Road crossing has been moved west to a safer area where the terrain is more technical than the traditional high-speed ‘whoops’ which will slow the race vehicles down in an area of high spectator concentration.
The race course also includes three of the infamous Baja washes—Huatamote, Chanate and Amarillas before heading to the finish line. The course includes nearly 50 virtual checkpoints to help insure the safety and the integrity of the challenging race course.
Festivities will start on Thursday night in the start line area at the San Felipe arches with a special SCORE launch party. Open to the public with a $2 donation to Mexico’s Cruz Roja (Red Cross), from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. there will be a racer autograph session followed by the celebratory party at 7 p.m., which will be fueled by Monster Energy Drink and Tecate.
Pre-running is allowed on the actual race course from last Friday (Feb. 22) through Friday, March 8.
The green flag will drop at 6 a.m. on Saturday, March 9, for the motorcycle and ATV classes, followed three and one-half hours later after the last Sportsman ATV by the car and truck classes at approximately 10:30 a.m. The start line and finish line for the race is scheduled to once again be the landmark San Felipe Arches on Highway 5 on the outskirts of San Felipe. One vehicle will start every 30 seconds in the elapsed-time race, with a 12-hour time limit to become an official finisher.
The season-opener of the 2013 SCORE Desert Series, the MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250, annually provides a greater economic impact to San Felipe than the popular six-week-long ‘Spring Break’.
The race began in 1982 and was not held between 1985 and 1989, the first five years of the seven-year combined High Desert Racing Association-HDRA/SCORE Desert Series of US and Baja races. It has been held consecutively each year since 1990.
In its first 26 years, the race has been held in San Felipe all but 2007 when political issues forced a last minute move by SCORE, starting it in Ensenada and finishing it in Santo Tomas. Ironically, 2007 saw a race-record 394 starters and a race-record 288 finishers even though the race was moved and the course changed just 10 days before the event. The records when the race actually started and finished in San Felipe are 341 for starters in 2006 and 220 for finishers, also in 2006.
ON THE BAJAscope
In its 40th year as the world’s foremost desert racing organization in 2013, the three-race 2013 SCORE Desert Series, with all three massive special events held in Baja California, Mexico, starts with the 27th MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250. Both starting and finishing in Ensenada, the other two events will be the 45th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 (May 31-June 2) and the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 (Nov. 14-17).
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF DESERT RACING
The 2013 SCORE Desert Series will also be part of the quickly-evolving World Championship of Desert Racing, which will combine points accumulated in the three SCORE Baja races along with points earned from three of the four-race 2013 HDRA Series, all held in the United States. Both the SCORE and HDRA series will crown their own individual class and overall point champions as well with a bonus purse for those racers who qualify for the World Championship of Desert Racing points bonus purse program to earn a desert racing World Champion title.
With a growing total, for the inaugural World Championship of Desert Racing bonus purse, an official total of $45,000 has been posted to date from new SCORE sponsors Amber Racing Services ($25,000), King Shocks ($10,000) and Rigid Industries ($10,000).
For car and truck classes with at least five starters in each qualifying race in 2013, the World Champion titles will be decided on combined points from the three SCORE races and three HDRA races with the bonus purse paid using the same formula based on total purse and number of starters in each class as is used currently for each SCORE race.
For the pro motorcycle and ATV classes, the World Championship of Desert Racing will include points earned in the three SCORE Baja races as well as the AMA National Hare and Hound race to be held during the HDRA Reno 500.
In addition to season class point championships and World Championship titles, the racers are also competing for part of the nearly $400,000 in cash purse and contingency postings each race. There are also annual SCORE Off-Roadsman of the Year Awards including the MasterCraft Safety SCORE Rookie of the Award that also receives a $2,000 cash bonus and custom-made driver’s race suit.

13SF250 SCORE Race Course Notes 021113 jd.xls
"We marked it last weekend, there were already some bike tracks on it. This years San Felipe 250 will be smoother than previous tracks and more fun (and less destructive) for limited class cars. Lots of new stuff and the rains have smoothed out some of the whoops. The first 30 miles is still whoop city even though it does not run up the power-line road. The sportsman handlebars have two cut-offs they are required to take which will cut off about 50 miles total and will greatly reduce the amount of handlebar/steering wheel interaction. The Pro handlebars still run all the miles. This will be the best SF250 track in many years."
*This years San Felipe 250, desert off-road race will run north towards Mexicali with eight miles of new course, avoiding the old Zoo Road. The course moves back down through the tough Borego section then heads North and then cuts down the Infamous Diablo Dry Lake Playa section.
This exciting new event goes across and hits some winding sandy wash sections before heading back towards town...no Old Puerticitos Road. No Matomi Wash.
This events race course will have it all. The sands of Mexico and desert rocks, silt, whoops, washes, and fast straight sections.
Much different than previous race courses here in San Felipe, Baja California. There is about 100 miles of racecourse North of Route 3 and there are 40 miles of the meanest San Felipe 'whoops' at most.
100+ miles of new course including 20+ miles of road never raced on before. This should be North of the highway to the southern end of the vast Laguna Salada. Paved route crossings the highway twice...once in the North and once South.
Reports indicate some sections may get 'bladed', but don't count on any improvements.
The really big news, (8) eight miles off the start will be new! No Zoo Road!
Southern sections of the traditional race are excluded from this years race event!
>>>Details and Race Course Map to be released official, on Friday, February 22.

New, Roger Norman, era with SCORE starts with 2013 season opener, March 8-10 in Mexico; Live drawing for starting positions, by class, Feb. 12 on Baja Racing News LIVE!
RaceWeek LIVE! ONLINE Coverage Starts Monday, March 4, All ONLINE at Baja Racing News LIVE!
Officially launching one of his many positive new initiatives for his newest desert racing series acquisition, Roger Norman announced recently that racer registration for the new SCORE Desert Series has begun online.
First event of the new era of SCORE International will be the 27th MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 desert race in March. SCORE is celebrating its 40th year of the world’s foremost desert racing organization in 2013. With 40 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs.
The LIVE! Racers Drawing ONLINE will be February 12, with complete coverage by Baja Racing News RADIO LIVE!
The race itself will be held March 8-10 in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico, kicking off the festivities of the 40th season of SCORE International desert racing. In order to be included in the start drawing, entries must be received with full payment by next Monday, Feb. 11.
Official entries received after the drawing will be given the next available starting position within their respective classes and late entries processed after March 1 will be accessed a $250 late fee. “We have made the commitment to ourselves, our racers and our sponsors to improve on the foundation set so solidly in stone by Sal Fish for our sport and online racer registration is a key element in that progression,” said Norman, a businessman turned racer turned race organizer. “This first major step of total online racer registration is a tremendous start for the new SCORE and I have to salute my wife Elise who has worked so diligently to integrate the elements of this new service to fit our needs for racer registration to make it something quite remarkable.”
“Remarkably, Elise got it done in warp speed which seems to be how we are doing everything right now. The SCORE system for online racer registration is extremely user friendly and allows the racer to even go back into his or her personal file to edit information as needed.”
The new SCORE online racer registration system requires full payment of all entry fees based on four levels for cars and trucks, depending on the type of class a racer is attempting to enter and two for motorcycles and ATVs. Payment is accepted via credit card with payment by check allowed although with a check the entry is not official until the check is received and processed by SCORE.
DIRT LIVE"Roger Norman’s Dirt Live one-hour weekly show" is broadcast live on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Pacific Time on the SCORE website. The show content is centered around his two desert racing series, the SCORE Desert Series and the High Desert Racing Association as well as the new bonus points program he has developed called the World Championship of Desert Racing.
REGISTRATION COORDINATION While Elise Norman is overseeing SCORE racer registration, she is being assisted by Jessica Armstrong, a new member of the SCORE staff. For questions, racers may contact Mrs. Norman at 775.690.2306 while Armstrong is available at 760.608.3919.
