ENSENADA, Mexico—Hometown heroes and brothers Alan and Aaron Ampudia made some lasting history Sunday by winning the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck title in the iconic BFGoodrich Tires 52nd SCORE Baja 1000, presented by 4 Wheel Parts, the iconic Granddaddy of All Desert Races. 52ND BAJA MIL
The world’s most iconic, oldest, prestigious and longest continuously held desert race, this year’s epic 52nd SCORE Baja 1000 was held over a rugged 800.50-mile race course over the Northern part of Mexico’s majestic Baja California peninsula, starting and finishing in Ensenada, Baja California Norte.
The race will be televised on a delayed basis as a one-hour special on ABC TV’s World of X Games programming on Jan. 4, 2020. Produced by SCORE in association with award-winning BCII TV, announcers will be Hall of Fame racers Cameron Steele and Ricky Johnson. Bud Brutsman is the executive producer.
Ensenada, “The Off-Road Capital of the World” is a coastal city on the Bahia de Todos Santos area of the Pacific Ocean, 80 miles south of the U.S. border at San Diego. FINAL FLAG
When the final checkered flag fell, a total of 264 vehicles left the start line early Saturday morning with racers from 39 U.S. States and 22 countries. When the course closed at 11:27:28 p.m. PT on Sunday, there were 145 official finishers for a 54.92 finishing percentage, especially good considering the difficulty of the race course that was made more difficult with a 24-hour delay to the start because of more than four inches of rain that fell in the Ensenada area and around the course on Tuedsay, Wednesday and Thursday of race week.
The results were made official following complete data tracking review of the devices on each vehicle in the event early Monday morning. The final results are still pending final racer inquiries today. AMPUDIA TRIUMPH
Second generation desert racers from Ensenada, brothers Alan, 28 and Aaron, 26 split the driving in their No. 10 Monster Energy Papas & Beer Ford Raptor built by ID Design to a winning time of 16 hours, 10 minutes and 36 seconds while averaging 49.48 miles per hour over the rugged, rain-soaked race course. Their older brother Rodrigo Ampudia, 34, was a navigator for both his brothers during parts of the race.
Alan Ampudia started the race and drove to race mile 350. Aaron Ampudia then drove from race mile 350 to race mile to 695. Alan Ampudia got back in and drove from race mile 695 to the finish line.
Both class winners in different classes, it was their first career SCORE Trophy Truck race win as the Ampudia brothers became just the third team of Mexican Nationals to win the legendary race.
First to accomplish it was the father/son team of Gustavo Vildosola Sr/Gustavo ‘Tavo’ Vildosola Jr in 2010 and the son/father team of Carlos ‘Apdaly’ Lopez/Juan C. Lopez at the 50th anniversary race in 2017. Both of those first two accomplishments were races that started in Ensenada and finished in La Paz. THE PODIUM
Joining the Ampudia brothers on the podium were 2019 Dakar Rally champions Nasser Al-Attiyah/Toby Price and Luke McMillin/Larry Roeseler.
Al-Attiyah, of Qatar and Australia’s Price, finished second with a penalty-free time of 16:21:06 (48.96mph) in Jesse Jones’ new Mason-Built No. 76 Ford F-250. Jones was scheduled to drive as well but a leg injury forced him to the sidelines.
Finishing third overall and in SCORE Trophy Truck after leading much of the race, San Diego’s McMillin and Roeseler, Imperial, Calif. covered the unforgiving course in a penalty-free 16:21:33 (48.93mph), just 27 seconds behind the Dakar Duo. MORGAN’S MOTORCYCLE MAGIC
Riding the No. 1x Honda CRF450X, Justin Morgan, 27, El Cajon, Calif. and his four-rider team raced to the overall motorcycle victory for his eighth consecutive overall motorcycle win in the SCORE World Desert Championship. The trio crossed the finish line in 17:34:28 with an average speed of 45.55mph.
Morgan split the riding with Shane Esposito, Temecula, Calif./Max Eddy Jr, Barstow, Calif. and David Kamo, Caldwell, Idaho.
Morgan started and rode to race mile 35. Shane Esposito rode from race mile 35 to race mile 200. Max Eddy Jr. rode from race mile 200 to race mile 350. David Kamo rode from race mile 350 to race mile 540 and Morgan rode again the final 260 miles to the finish line.
For Morgan it was his second overall win in the SCORE Baja 1000 while it was also the second for Esposito, third for Eddy Jr and fourth for Kamo.
Starting first among the motorcycles and never relinquishing the physical lead, the 1x team held off the field with Mexico’s Santiago Creel and his 66x team finishing second overall among the motorcycles in the elapsed time race.
Riding on KTM motorcycles, as rider of record, Creel’s teams also won the Pro Moto Limited class and were also second in Pro Moto 30.
The victory was also the 29th overall motorcycle win in this legendary race for American Honda. 7 OF TOP 10 OVERALL SCORE TROPHY TRUCKS

Enjoying his joyous victory celebration with his father, brothers, team and family at the finish line, Alan Ampudia commented, “It was the gnarliest day ever. This is a dream come true. This has been a dream for us since we were little. Watching Ivan Stewart, Robby Gordon and all the legends in this sport has inspired us. To be able to come out here with a stacked field like it was today and come out on top through all the elements Baja threw at us this year with the rain and the mud, it was crazy. There are so many stories to be told and this is the greatest desert race in the world. Me and Tavo (Vildosola Jr) battled for miles. Our truck was amazing. It was on rails today. The puddles were insane.”
Aaron Ampudia said at the finish line, “Alan gave me the truck in first place physical and on time. When I got out we had a fourteen minute lead on Luke (McMillin) and about an hour on everyone else. We pushed and made a little mistake. We had to stop and got some help from the MacCachren team so we really appreciate those guys. We got back to our pit and fixed the issues. It was a great day. We knew we had to put in a clean, solid race to have a chance to win and that’s what we went out and did.” MORGAN REFLECTIONS
Leading his team to its eighth consecutive overall win and the Pro Moto Unlimited race win in SCORE races over two years, Morgan reflected after the race, “It was really good conditions. I was expecting more mud but it was really good in the desert. I would never have thought I would have eight wins. We lost a lot of races to learn how to win them so it is finally paying off.” SCORE TT LEGEND
Earning their first class win in the SCORE TT Legend class for SCORE Trophy Truck drivers over 50 years old was the team of Rolf Helland, Morris, Ill. and Rick D. Johnson, Barstow, Calif.

As it has for over four and one-half decades, SCORE has put together another memorable race course for the 52nd anniversary, this one a loop race, with all of the foreboding, unforgiving terrain and inspiring beauty that the northern state of the majestic Baja California peninsula has to offer.
SCORE President/Race Director Jose A. Grijalva has designed and finalized this year’s race course of 800.5 miles. The course has three physical checkpoints and approximately 281 virtual checkpoints along the way to the finish line.
Starting and finishing in the heart of Ensenada adjacent to the historic Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center, the course traveled East to Ojos Negros and then ran counter-clockwise in a weaving route around both the West and then the East side of the northern part of the peninsula.
The course ran in a counter-clockwise direction after the two-way section to the Ojos Negros area and down along the Pacific Ocean through Uruapan, Santo Tomas, Erendira, Santo Domingo Wash and San Quintin.
From there it traveled Northeast going by Rancho El Coyote, across and around Mike’s Sky Rancho, down by Simpson’s Ranch. The route then continues up to a speed zone on Highway 3 before going down over Laguna Del Diablo through Morelia Junction down and back up past San Felipe before heading back up through Laguna Salada, then South back through Santa Catarina to Ojos Negros and the finish on the two-way section back into Ensenada.
The course also went through two of Baja California’s infamous washes on the east side of the course—Matomi Wash and Amarillas Wash.
The three physical checkpoints were located starting with Checkpoint 1 which was near Vicente Guerrero (race mile 224.25), Checkpoint 2 was at the El Chinero Highway 3 Road Crossing (rm535.94) and Checkpoint 3 was near Santa Catarina (rm 708.47).
Because of two extremely challenging areas on the course, Class 7SX, Baja Challenge, Class 9, Class 11, Vintage Classes and all Sportsman classes ran a reduced course of 701.48 total miles. SCOREscope 2020 SCHEDULE
