For Pro and Sportsman racers in cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads completing every required race mile
ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico—Three-quarters of the way through the four-race 2021 SCORE World Desert Championship, 67 of the toughest racers in the world remain in the hunt to earn 2021 Rod Hall SCORE Milestone Awards, presented by VP Racing Fuels. The first three races were the SCORE San Felipe 250 in April, the SCORE Baja 500 in mid-June and the SCORE Baja 400 in September.
SCORE is presenting these prestigious awards to the world’s toughest desert racers for the 36th consecutive year. The SCORE Milestone awards will be presented to the car, truck, UTV drivers and motorcycle, quad riders who finish every required mile as official finishers in the 2021 SCORE World Desert Championship. Racers have been required to cover 1,146.2 miles so far this season.
Many of the world’s best desert racers will be in action at this year’s massive BFGoodrich Tires 54th SCORE Baja 1000, presented by 4 Wheel Parts.The 2021 season-finale will be televised on a delayed basis as a one-hour special on ESPN2’s World of X Games programming.
Race week activities will be held Nov. 15-20.
Nearly 300 vehicles are expected at the start line with racers from nearly 40 U.S. States and as many as 20 countries anticipated. Pro and Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads will be competing in the Granddaddy of All Desert Races.
This year’s SCORE Baja 1000 will be a point-to-point race of a spectacular 1,239 miles starting in Ensenada in the northern state of Mexico’s majestic Baja California peninsula and finishing in La Paz, Baja California Sur.

It will start for the 47th time in Ensenada, finish for the 22nd time in La Paz and the race is annually the finale of the SCORE World Desert Championship, which has been held exclusively for the past six years in Baja California.
It will be the first peninsula run since the 50th SCORE Baja 1000 in 2017.
