INSIDE VOL. 4, NO. 6
Vol. 4, No. 6 of the SCORE Journal is once again filled with numerous interesting worth-reading features, stories, exciting videos and several news items.
This edition is centered around an extensive review of the 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500 and the 321 official entries who challenged the rugged race-record 542.12-mile course.
While the 50 years of Glory tribute to the 50th anniversary of the SCORE Baja 500 includes several features and award-winning photography, the anchor story is about the amazing Rob MacCachren as he earned his SCORE-record 17th career SCORE Trophy Truck race win and captured the overall title of the 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500, picking up the massive $25,000 contingency bonus from title sponsor BFGoodrich Tires while impressively leading the grueling historic race from start to finish.
With coverage from many angles textually and pictorially, one of the other key breakout stories is on the magnificent McMillin family that had three third-generation SCORE Baja racers finish second, fourth and fifth overall and in SCORE Trophy Truck. Leading this ‘Dynasty in the Desert’ in this event, Luke McMillin, 25, the youngest of the trio, was second, his cousin Andy McMillin, 31, finished fourth and his older brother Dan McMillin, 25, finished fifth overall and in SCORE Trophy Truck adding more to the legend of McMillin family racing in SCORE Baja races.
Another breakout piece reviews the brilliant motorcycle race by Justin Morgan/Mark Samuels/Justin Jones as they dominated the two-wheel classes in winning the overall m/c title and recording the seventh-fastest time on the record-breaking course.
In additional to breakouts on several other classes and several repeat winners in Pro Moto classes, there is also a feature on the largest field of UTV racers in SCORE history, the first overall UTV win in a SCORE race by a woman-Kristen Matlock, and a look at motocross champion Sara Price in her SCORE rookie season racing in Trophy Truck Spec in an RPM Racing truck.
Also spotlighted in the issue is a very, very look at the Pit Crews, those ‘heros’ behind the teams who wait for hours to keep their vehicles racing for victory.
