Pistol Pete Sohren was very proud of his teams accomplishments, he said Sunday morning, "Chad and Paul Broughton (with Paige navigating) WIN the trophy truck spec class in their first race ever in their new BAJALITE-XR, Randy Bluth and I CRUSH the class 7's with a stock 4 cyl BAJALITE, and long time BAJALITE driver Billy Wilson WINS OVERALL in his new Jimco TT ... what a fantastic day for our bajalite "FAMILY" ..."
When nobody shows up to race a SCORE event, the Mullet runs wild.

Cameron Steele had the race lead when he broke 80 miles from the finish. There must be a 300 pound gremlin on cams shoulder!  
TRUCKS STARTED AT 10:15! TT#50 Zack Langley OUT; Equip. Issues.

Motorcycles and Quads started at 6AM. Udall crossed the finish line first, but, his team has a history of losing their tracker and getting busted for cheating. Arredondo may have won this event in Motos.

Race BULLETIN! Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Brian Riebe of Trophy Truck #2, Arizona SEZ:

"SCORE sucks, San Felipe canceled, Roger is splitting his time between screwing racers and counting his money, organizing off road races in Baja is cake, no enviros in Mexico, and starting bs rumors solves everything."

February 12, 2016 

Chris Miller received the first overall starting position for this race. Kevin Murphy received the first motorcycle starting position.

 Racing over a rugged 249.5-mile course that includes four of Baja’s infamous washes, the elapsed time race will have a 17-hour time limit. Motorcycles and quads will start, beginning at 6 a.m. and the car, truck and UTV classes will leave at approximately 10:30 a.m. with at least a three and one-half hour split between the first group of vehicles.

Drawing the first starting slot for the unlimited Class 1 for open-wheel desert race cars was Stephen Squires, Austin, Texas. Riding the first quad off the line will be team led by two-time defending SCORE Pro Quad season point champion Javier Robles Jr of Calexico, Calif.
 

Unlimited Class 1 and Class 10 each had the most entries in the drawing with seven each followed by Trophy Truck with 14 entries and Trophy Truck Spec with 13 entries. Leading the motorcycle entries in the drawing was the Pro Moto Ironman class with eight entries followed by Pro Moto Unlimited and Pro Moto 40 (riders at least 40 years old) with six each.

 Winning the last three SCORE San Felipe races overall, Mexico’s Gus Vildosola Jr will be looking to break a three-way tie with three Las Vegas racers to become the first racer to win the SCORE overall title in race history four times and the first to pull off four consecutive victories. A second generation Mexican desert racer, Vildosola Jr of Mexicali has five class wins in this race including a record-tying three straight overall and Trophy Truck wins.

Vildosola Jr, with help from his father Gus Sr. in 2013 won his first overall. He drove solo the next two years to tie the record in 2015 of three straight overall wins set by Las Vegas racing brothers Ed Herbst and Tim Herbst who won three straight in 1999, 2000 and 2001. The Herbst aren't on the starting list today. Interesting. Two other Southern Nevada drivers have three overall car and truck wins in San Felipe but not three straight. One is Las Vegas’ Brian Collins, who won his first in 1990 in Class 1 while splitting driving time with SCORE Baja motorcycle racing legend Jack Johnson, also of Las Vegas. Collins also captured two straight in the Trophy Truck class in 2008 and 2009.


The other three-timer in overall victories is Las Vegas’ Rob MacCachren, who has eight class wins in San Felipe and won his three overalls in the featured SCORE Trophy Truck division. MacCachren’s first was in 2007 when his split the driving with Mark Post and his most recent overalls in San Felipe were solo wins in 2011 and 2012. MacCachren, who has won two straight in the SCORE Baja 1000, drives the No. 11 MacCachren Motorsports Rockstar Ford F-150.


The Race Course


Pre-running will be allowed on the actual race course through Friday (Feb. 26). The race course is a single loop, run counter-clockwise of 249.5 miles. Starting and finishing at the San Felipe Arches monument, the course is considered to possibly be the toughest in the history of this popular race.


Fairly similar to the course run in 2010, it does not cross Highway 3 which goes to Ensenada. Instead it runs up to it along Highway 5 and then turns northwest just before Highway 3 and parallels it for about 10 miles before turning further south all the way down to the legendary Matomi Wash. Working its way back north, it heads southwest and then north and north west before turning north back to the finish line.
In addition to Matomi, the course also includes three other major Baja washes– Huatomote, Chanate and Amarillas. The course will have three physical checkpoints at race mile 24.7, rm 148.5 and rm 244.7. There will also be approximately 45 virtual checkpoints along the race course.
