Nearly 450 Entries!

ENSENADA, MEXICO—After all the pre-race music, Mexican fiestas and autograph sessions are finished, reality will abruptly return Thursday morning when the green flag drops for the 39th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race.
Emphasis will quickly shift from all the celebrity and cross-over drivers when the tire treads meet the rugged desert terrain of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula as the world’s best desert racers will earn and lose SCORE season point championships in the season-finale of the six-race 2006 SCORE Desert Series.
The granddaddy of all desert races will be held for the 39th time this week, starting in Ensenada, on the Pacific Ocean 65 miles South of San Diego and finishing in La Paz on the Sea of Cortez, covering 1,050.83 miles down Mexico’s ruggedly majestic Baja California peninsula.

A humungous race-record field of nearly 450 entries from 38 U.S. States and 11 countries, competing in 28 Pro and 6 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs, are part of this year’s tribute to the sport of desert racing. The race is the crown jewel of the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series.
The all-time race-record for starters, 346, was set 29 years ago in 1977 (Ensenada to Ensenada), and the race-record for starters when the race runs the length of the peninsula to La Paz, 307, was set in 1992. The race record for finishers, 198, was set in 2004 when the race finished in La Paz.

With massive crowds of over 300,000 anticipated to again be spread out down the Baja California Peninsula, the race will start in front of the Riviera del Pacific Cultural Center in Ensenada and will finish on the outskirts of La Paz in Baja California Sur.
Truly the race of champions, this year’s race will again determine the SCORE season class champs. The closest point races include the marquee SCORE Trophy-Truck division, where just 67 points separate the top five and the unlimited Class 1, where just 40 points separate the top five point leaders.
“There are no accurate adjectives to describe my feelings right now, this is all so unbelievable,” said Sal Fish, SCORE President/CEO, on the eve of the world’s most famous desert race. “To think that after 38 previous classics, this year’s race has gone off the chart in terms of entries compared to other years is mind-boggling. The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 is the Super Bowl of motorsports and I can’t wait to watch the world’s greatest desert racers and their amazing crews make some more SCORE Baja history this weekend. It’s also a special treat for us to host a record number of our cross-over and celebrity racers who will experience something that they will remember forever.”
BFGoodrich Tires, a SCORE desert racing staple, is completing its celebration of 31 years of SCORE Baja racing as well as pursuing its quest of 21 consecutive Overall 4-wheel victories in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.
A race-record of 36 SCORE Trophy-Trucks are entered. The marquee SCORE racing division featuring 800-horsepower unlimited production trucks includes cross-over drivers Gordon and James, in addition to the talented field of regulars and a very close point’s race for the season championship. Eight of 12 previous season point champions are entered and 61 of 77 all-time SCORE Trophy-Truck race winners are represented as well along with seven of the previous 12 SCORE Trophy-Truck winners in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.
Las Vegas brothers Ed and Tim Herbst are the winningest team in the history of the class with 11 race wins and four season point titles in the No. 19 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Ford F-150, while tied for second is Larry Ragland, Cave Creek, Ariz., with nine. Ragland is again racing this year with veteran Brian Collins of Las Vegas, who has three wins in the No. 12 Collins Motorsports Chevy Silverado. Top challengers to become the new ‘gran ganador de Mexico’ in SCORE Trophy-Truck include the Herbst brothers, NASCAR’s R. Gordon and his co-driver Andy McMillin, Ryan Arciero and Ricky Johnson (who won this class in 2003 and 2004, last year’s season point champion and Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 race winner Bob Shepard, this year’s point leader B.J. Baldwin, Hawaii’s Alan Pflueger and rookie sensation Garron Cadiente.
Las Vegas’ B.J. Baldwin won the season-opener in Laughlin in January and has finished high enough the rest of the way to maintain his point lead in the ultra-competitive SCORE Trophy-Truck division. He has 270 points to lead Shepard, who win the SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 in September, by six points. Third are the Herbst brothers (Ed and Tim) with 242 points while Pflueger is fourth with 241. Fifth entering the season-finale is the team of Andy McMillin/Robby Gordon with 203 while Cadiente, who won the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 in March, is sixth with 199 points.
The Collins/Ragland team sat out the San Felipe race this year, but pulled off a stunning SCORE Trophy-Truck victory in June’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500.
The unlimited Class 1 for open-wheel desert race cars has one of its closest point races as well with just 40 points separating its top five leaders. The team of Troy Herbst/Larry Roeseler, who are seeking their third straight overall 4-wheel vehicle win in this race, have 296 points to lead the class and the SCORE Overall point standings in their Smithbuilt-Ford. Brothers Gary and Mark Weyhrich are second with 291, followed by Richard Boyle/Ron Brant with 273, Martin Christensen/Dave Mason with 260 and Brian Parkhouse with 256. Herbst has 20 Class 1 race wins since 1997 out of 54 races, a SCORE record for the class.
Entered in this year’s event are 19 racers who have combined for 40 overall wins in either the 4-wheel or motorycle divisions. The leaders are: Larry Roeseler, 12, (10 on a motorcycle); Johnny Campbell has won nine straight (all on a motorcycle), Malcolm Smith has five overalls (two in m/c and three in 4-wheel) and with five overall wins each in the 4-wheel division are Mark McMillin and Larry Ragland.
Entered in this year’s event are 93 racers who have combined for incredible 259 class wins. The leaders in multiple class wins entered this year are: Rod Hall with 18 (first overall), Larry Roeseler with 14 (third overall), Chris Haines with 12 (fourth overall), Jack Johnson with 11 (fifth overall), Johnny Campbell with 9 (tied for sixth overall) and Mark McMillin, Malcolm Smith, Eric Solorzano and Dean Sundahl with 8 each (tied for ninth overall).
The race also features 34 riders (30 motorcycle entries and four ATVs) who have declared their intention to race solo for the entire distance, hoping to claim a SCORE IronRider award.
This record-setting race also has a SCORE record number of female driver/riders. The SCORE regular primary drivers entered are Heidi Steele, Class 7SX and Sigal Greenberg, Class 9. In the Micron Technology Baja Challenge class, Robby Gordon’s younger sister Robyn and Beccy are leading the All-American Girls racing team while San Diego County school principal Jessica McCreary is part of a Sportsman ATV team.
Two female racers, Kathy Jarvis and Anna Cody, will both be attempting to set very special records for the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Jarvis, a noted Hollywood stunt driver, is racing in the Protruck class and will attempt to becoming the first female rider to drive solo in a truck class. Cody, a veteran SCORE desert racer whose brother Quinn is part of one of the factory Honda teams in this race, will be racing in Class 22, attempting to become the first female rider to drive solo on a motorcycle.
To date, the Pro 4-Wheel classes with the most entries to date are SCORE Trophy-Truck with a race-record 36, Class 1-2/1600 (30), Class 1 (29), SCORE Lite and Class 5/1600 (21 each), Micron Technology Baja Challenge (20), Protruck (19), Class 10 (12).
In the Pro Motorcycle classes, the unlimited Class 22 has 24 entries so far while Class 30 (riders over 30 years old) has 15 and Class 40 (riders over 40), has 10.
Leading the six Sportsman classes in the race is Sportsman Motorcycle over 250cc which has a race-record 53 entries to date.

Campbell has nine consecutive overall motorcycle victories in this race, including the last five with the Hengeveld, who has earned his Baja legend status as well.As the rider of record on the No. 1x Honda CRF450X, Hengeveld also has one other motorcycle class win in this race. In 2002, Hengeveld and Campbell set an average speed record in this race for a motorcycle, averaging an incredible 62.45mph.Campbell, who has been elevated to team manager this year, has not raced since last year and has decided to continue competing in this event until his incredible record-setting winning streak is broken. He will be the third rider on the No. 6X Honda CRF450X behind rider of record Robby Bell, 21, Murrieta, Calif., and second rider Kendall Norman, 22, Santa Barbara, Calif. Campbell hascontinued to train with both Honda factory teams and has always been ready to pinch hit, if needed.Splitting the riding time with Hengeveld this year will be Mike Childress, 21, Wrightwood, Calif. and Quinn Cody, 28, who like Norman, lives in Santa Barbara. Childress is in his second season riding with Hengeveld and the pair along with Johnny Campbell, won last year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Cody is a veteran rider who has been added to the team for this long-distance endurance race down the Baja peninsula. Each rider is expected to ride about one-third of the race with Hengeveld, known as a great night rider, taking the final stretch of about 362 miles from La Purisma to La Paz.Norman was part of the overall champion team in 2004 as the third rider with Hengeveld and Campbell. Bell and Norman are leading this year’s Class 22 point standings heading into the season finale in Baja.“After looking up to him as my mentor for so many years, then being fortunate enough to race on the same team with him for five straight years, it will definitely feel strange to be riding against Johnny (Campbell) instead of with him,” said Hengeveld, who will be riding the lighter Honda CRF450X in this race for this first time this year. “Johnny is a legend, but we would also like to be the team that kept our streak alive and ended his. The Honda CRF450X is a great motorcycle. It is lighter than the Honda XR650R that we raced so successfully for so many years and we’re looking forward to giving it a good workout next week in Baja. The 450 weighs about 70 pounds less than the 650, is faster out of the corners and gets up to speed quicker.”The all-time race-record for starters in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, 346, was set 29 years ago in 1977 (Ensenada to Ensenada), and the race-record for starters when the race runs the length of the peninsula to La Paz, 307, was set in 1992.This year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race will be televised on a delayed basis as a one-hour NBC Sports special for the third consecutive year, airing at 2:30 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, Dec. 10 on the NBC Television Network. It will also air on a delayed basis outside of the U.S. on ESPN International.While there are a total of 125 Pro and Sportsman motorcycles entered to date, the clear favorites are the factory Honda teams of Hengeveld and Bell. Leading the group of hopeful overall winners is the team led rider of record Brian Pinard, 32, Wildomar, Calif. Riding the No. 301x Honda XR650R in Class 30 (for riders over 30 years old), Pinard and teammate Taber Murphy, 32, Wenatchee, Wash., lead the SCORE overall motorcycle point standings with 143 points compared to 141 for the Bell/Norman duo.Anna Cody, 38, Camarillo, Calif., is the older sister of Hengeveld’s teammate Quinn Cody. A veteran desert racer, she is returning to the starting grid this year with a serious goal in mind. Racing on the No. 18x Honda XR650R, she will attempt to become the first female rider to ever solo on a motorcycle in the 39-year history of this legendary race.Anna Cody is also running the event as a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society, in memory of her long-time racing teammate Lillie Sweetland, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2001.Attempting to pull off triple class wins, Jim O’Neal, 60, of Chatsworth, Calif., is racing in three different Honda XR650R age-group motorcycle classes—Class 40, Class 50 and Class 60. In Class 40 and Class 50, O’Neal, owner of the noted apparel manufacturing company that bears his name, is rider of record for a pair of talented teams while in Class 60 he will be a co-rider for the team led by Donald Lewis, 62, of Marlborough, Ct.Another super-talented age-group entry is the Class 50 team led by Chris Haines, 55, Dana Point, Calif. Riding a Honda XR650R, Haines and co-riders Jack Johnson, 54, Boulder City, Nev., and Richard Jackson, 60, Acton, Calif., have a combined total of 28 class wins in this race. Haines leads with 12 (including seven straight), followed by Johnson with 11 (including four Overall motorcycle wins) and Jackson with five.There are 126 total motorcycle entries to date and 30 of them, including Anna Cody, will be attempting to cover the entire course by riding solo. Of the group, 11 are entered in Pro classes, while 19 of them will be riding in a Sportsman class.There are also 26 total ATV entries to date and four of them (1 Pro and 3 Sportsman) will be attempting to cover the entire course by riding solo.Leading contenders for the ATV overall victory are defending SCORE Desert Series point Champion Josh Frederick, Moapa, Nev., along with the top three current point leaders in 2006, Wayne Matlock, El Cajon, Calif. (146 points), Danny Prather, Ramona, Calif. (132) and Alex Camanini, El Cajon, Calif. (130). Frederick and his team will ride a Can-Am Renegade while the other three teams will all be on Honda TRX450R ATVs.The Pro 4-Wheel classes with the most entries to date are SCORE Trophy-Truck with a race-record tying 34, Class 1-2/1600 (30), Class 1 (29), SCORE Lite (21), Micron Technology Baja Challenge and Class 5/1600 (20 each), Protruck (19), Class 10 (12). In the Pro Motorcycle classes, the unlimited Class 22 has 24 entries so far while Class 30 (riders over 30 years old) has 15 and Class 40 (riders over 40), has 11.Leading the six Sportsman classes in the race is Sportsman Motorcycle over 250cc which has a race-record 53 entries to date.The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 is the oldest and most well known of all desert races, and it remains as the single most appealing accomplishment to a driver. Since 1967, the mother of all desert races has been run over the mysterious Baja California peninsula.With massive crowds reaching over 300,000 anticipated to again be spread out along the point-to-point race course, the race will start for the 32nd time in Ensenada and will finish for the 17th time in La Paz.


BFGoodrich Tires, long a staple in desert racing, has been the tire of
choice for 20 consecutive overall 4-wheel vehicle winners.


In 4-wheel vehicle competition, VW motors have produced 12 overall
winners, followed by Ford with 11, Chevy with 9, Porsche with 3, Toyota
with 2, and Dodge with 1.


Among 4-wheel vehicles, Chenowth has produced the chassis for 10 overall
winners, followed by Ford with 9, Chevy with 5, Toyota, Funco, Raceco,
Jimco and Smithbuilt with 2 each and Miller, Hi-Jumper, Dodge, and Meyers
Manx with 1 each.


In motorcycle competition, Honda leads with 16 overall victories,
followed by Husqvarna with 11, Kawasaki with 9 and Yamaha with 2.


When veterans Rod Hall and Ron Bishop strap on their racing helmets and
take the green flag, they will keep their incredible streaks alive of
being the only two racers who have competed in all 38 SCORE Baja 1000
races. Hall, who will turn 68 on Nov. 22, will drive in Stock Mini.
Bishop, 63, is the only individual who has run all 38 races on a
motorcycle. This year, Bishop will co-ride in the over 250cc Class 22
motorcycle class on a team led by Beau Hayden. Hall is the all-time
winningest racer in this event with 18 class wins and Bishop has one
class win and is a member of the AMA Hall of Fame.


Committed to extending their overall winning streaks are unlimited Class
1 legends Troy Herbst/Larry Roeseler and motorcycle superstar Johnny
Campbell. Herbst, who has four class wins in this race and Roeseler, who
has 14 class and 12 overall (10 on a motorcycle) wins, will be attempting
to become only the first Class 1 (unlimited open-wheel desert race cars)
team in the history of the race to earn three consecutive overall wins.
They are tied with Mark McMillin, who won back-to-back titles in 1983 and
1984. In SCORE Trophy-Truck, Larry Ragland won three straight in 1995,
1996 and 1997 in Chevy trucks. Parnelli Jones won back-to-back overalls
in 1971 and 1972 in a Ford Bronco. Campbell has nine straight overall and
Class 22 motorcycle wins and is teamed this year with Robby Bell and
Kendall Norman.


SCORE points are determined both on final finishing position and number
of vehicles which started the race within the individual class. After
four events, just 40 points separate the top 10 SCORE point leaders for
2006. The team of Troy Herbst/Larry Roeseler has earned 296 points and
they are the overall point leaders and lead Class 1 as well in their
Smithbuilt-Ford. In what has developed into one of tightest overall point
battles in SCORE history, second in overall and Class 1 points are
brothers Gary and Mark Weyhrich (Jimco-Chevy--291), while third
overall and in Class 1 is the team of Richard Boyle/Ron Brant
(Jimco-Chevy--273). Fourth and fifth overall are the top two leaders
in SCORE Trophy-Truck: B.J. Baldwin (Chevy Silverado--270) and Bob
Shepard (Chevy CK1500--264).


The 2006 SCORE Desert Series includes chase for the $50,000 Kartek
Off-Road contingency bonus to be awarded to several qualified 2006 SCORE
Class point champions.


The 2006 SCORE Desert Series also involves the hunt for the 21st annual
Toyota Milestone and $12,000 Toyota True Grit Awards. The prestigious
Toyota Milestone Awards are presented to every racer who completes every
required mile of every race in the 2006 SCORE Desert Series. The $12,000
Toyota True Grit purse is split among the SCORE season point champions
who are also Toyota Milestone award winners in several non-factory-backed
classes. A total of 22 drivers are still eligible for Toyota Milestone
awards and 10 of those are still in the hunt for class titles and an
equal share of the Toyota True Grit purse.


A race-record of nearly 40 SCORE Trophy-Trucks are expected to take the
green flag. The marquee SCORE racing division featuring 800-horsepower
unlimited production trucks includes cross-over drivers in addition to
the talented field of regulars and a very close point's race for the
season championship. Eight of 12 previous season point champions are
entered and 61 of 77 SCORE Trophy-Truck race winners are represented as
well along with seven of the previous 12 SCORE Trophy-Truck winners in
the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Las Vegas brothers Ed and Tim Herbst are the
winningest team in the history of the class with 11 race wins in the No.
19 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Ford F-150, while second is Larry Ragland,
Cave Creek, Ariz., with nine. Ragland is racing this year with veteran
Brian Collins of Las Vegas, who has three wins in the No. 12 Collins
Motorsports Chevy Silverado. Returning as defending race and class season
point champion is Bob Shepard, Phoenix, who drives the No. 1 Shepard
Motorsports Chevy CK1500.


Two more racers who have declared their desire to triple their pain and
pleasure are motorcycle racers Jim O'Neal, 60, and Stephen Stenberg,
51. O'Neal, who owns the prominent O'Neal Racing apparel company,
will once again lead Honda XR650R teams in Class 40 and Class 50 and will
be a co-rider on a team in the new age group Class 60 led by Donald
Lewis. Stenberg will be the rider of record on three different Husqvarna
motorcycles in Class 21, Class 30 and Class 40.
