TRIUMPHS-2022 Las Vegas’ Rob MacCachren, the veritable G.O.A.T. of off-road racing, added another amazing accomplishment to his Hall of Fame record in 2022, overcoming a field of 259 starters and a ridiculously-rugged race course to capture the Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck victory in the internationally-televised BFGoodrich Tires 54th SCORE Baja 500.      MacCachren worked his way to the front of the field in his sturdy and dependable No. 24 Ford F-150 to an admirable error-free, penalty free winning time of nine hours, 22 minutes and 47 seconds with an average speed of 49.37 miles per hour over the gut-wrenching 463.12-mile course. Under superbly sunny skies, light winds with mild temperatures in the mid-70s Farenheit on the Western side of the course and upwards of 100 on the Eastern side. Finishers called it “the most beautifully brutal course ever” in the history of this legendary desert race. PODIUM FINISHERS-2022 Following the ‘Mac Attack’ closely to the finish line for one of the closest podium finishes in race history was SoCal’s young gun Broc Dickerson. Dickerson, Brawley, Calif., who has significant short-course and desert racing experience despite his young age, just not in SCORE Trophy Truck, started 20th physically and finished the course just one minute, 24 seconds behind MacCachren on corrected time in 9:24:11 in the No. 34 TSCO-built Ford Raptor with an average speed of 49.25 mph. Completing the podium in third place was last year’s race winner, ageless Hall of Famer Larry ‘Mr. Baja’ Roeseler, Imperial, Calif. with a time of 9:35:43 in the No. 43 Baja Jerky Cantina Racing Toyota Tundra with an average speed of 48.27 mph. TOP 12: SCORE TROPHY TRUCKS-2022 Besides MacCachren, Dickerson and Roeseler, the top 11 overall finishers in the race were from SCORE Trophy Truck. Fourth overall was Mikey Lawrence, Banning, Calif. with a time of 9:43:35 in his No. 85 Ford Raptor while fifth was Mexico’s hometown favorite Alan Ampudia, of Ensenada, in his No. 10 Ford Raptor in 9:45:09. Ampudia had originally finished third unofficially, but penalties pushed him back to fifth place. San Diego’s Luke McMillin, who lead physically much of the race after starting first, finished sixth in 9:46:00 in his McMillin Racing No. 83 Chevy 1500 while seventh in 9:48:13 was Canada’s Tracy Graf in his Chevy Silverado. Finishing eighth overall in his Chevy Silverado in 9:50:23 was Sam Baldi, Beaumont, Calif. while ninth was Justin Lofton, Brawley, Calif. in 9:55:05 in his Chevy Silverado and 10th Overall and in SCORE Trophy Truck was San Diego’s Dan McMillin, (Luke’s older brother) with a time of 10:07:46.  Raul Gomez, Placerville, Calif., was 11th in his No. 90 Ford Raptor in 10:15:37. Gustavo Vildosola Sr, Mexicali, Mexico, was 12th overall and won his SCORE TT Legend class for SCORE Trophy Truck drivers over 50 years old in his No. 21L Vildosola Racing For Raptor. His second driver was AMA Hall of Famer Ricky Johnson, Trabuco Canyon, Calif. SCORE BAJA 500 GOLD Leader of the pack of former SCORE Baja 500 SCORE Trophy Truck race winners entered in this year’s race is Las Vegas’ G.O.A.T. MacCachren with three wins (1996, 2018, 2022) and Las Vegas’ Bryce Menzies with three wins in four years (2011, 2012, 2014).

MORE SCORE TROPHY TRUCK WINNERS Any SCORE racer will tell you that the challenge is as much, if not more, about the struggle against the beautiful but unforgiving Baja terrain as it is about beating the other competitors in the class. The old adage is ‘to finish first, you must first finish’. Including the SCORE Baja 500, MacCachren has a SCORE-record 20 career SCORE Trophy Truck races wins and Menzies has eight in his career, Arciero has four, Johnson has one, Vildosola Jr has six, Dan McMillin and Smith each have one, and Roeseler has five career SCORE Trophy Tuck race wins.

GRAN HISTORIA This year’s SCORE World Desert Championship includes another special tribute to the iconic SCORE Baja 500. The SCORE Baja 500 is one of the top motorsports events in the world. It was started originally in 1969 by the NORRA organization. After NORRA was removed from Baja after the 1972 race, the local Baja Sports Committee produced the 1973 event. Mickey Thompson and his SCORE International organization were invited by the Mexican government to take over the event starting in 1974. Sal Fish ran and later owned and produced the SCORE Baja 500 for 39 years until he sold SCORE in December of 2012. The first Baja 500 organized and produced by SCORE was held on July 26, 1974 in Ensenada as the first of nearly 165 SCORE Baja races. This year’s SCORE Baja 500 will start for the 49th time in Ensenada and finish for the 45th time in Ensenada. BFGOODRICH TIRES UNMATCHED BFGoodrich Tires, the official tire of SCORE for 47 years, was honored after the 2022 season as the SCORE Contingency Company of the year for the 32nd time. BFGoodrich Tires has been the choice of 35 of the 54 overall winners of the popular SCORE Baja 500 and 33 of the 55 overall winners of the legendary SCORE Baja 1000. BFGoodrich Tires is also the title sponsor of both iconic races again in 2023. BFGoodrich Tires also has been the choice of 30 of the 36 overall winners of the SCORE San Felipe 250, all three SCORE Desert Challenge races, the lone SCORE Challenge of Champions in San Felipe, the one SCORE Baja Sur 500 and one of the three overall winners in the SCORE Baja 400. This year’s SCORE San Felipe 250 overall victory by San Diego’s Luke McMillin marked the 103rd SCORE Baja overall race win for BFGoodrich Tires. BFGoodrich Tires has posted a contingency bonus for the overall winner of this year’s race of US$10,000. SCORE LIVE SCORE Live will be streaming throughout race week on the SCORE website. Colorful Rat Sult is in his eighth season as the host and lead announcer of SCORE Live. Assisting him again at this race will be veteran voice Dave Arnold. GRANDEST MARSHAL FOR GOLDEN YEAR Sal Fish, admired as the iconic ‘godfather’ of SCORE desert racing who is a foundational pillar of the organization, is the Grand Marshal of the Year for the entire four-race 2023 SCORE World Desert Championship. Revered all over Baja California, Fish, who will turn 84 tomorrow (May 2), is a former publisher of Hot Rod Magazine and a 2006 inductee into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame. He led SCORE for 38 years, from 1974 until he sold the organization on Dec. 20, 2012. His footprint left an indelible mark on all of desert racing as he was an extraordinary innovator and visionary for SCORE and the entire world of desert racing. He expanded TV coverage of SCORE races and in 1994 created the SCORE Trophy Truck class, the marquee racing division in the sport of desert racing. SCORE BAJA 500 GRAND MARSHALS      SCORE has announced that Ivan Stewart, Alpine, Calif., and Johnny Campbell will be the co-Grand Marshals for this year’s BFGoodrich Tires 55th SCORE Baja 500.

San Diego’s iconic Ivan ‘Ironman’ will be celebrating his 78th birthday on June 4, during the conclusion of this year’s SCORE Baja 500. The ‘Ironman’ celebrated his birthday annually over the years with 17 career class wins including a race-record 10 overall 4-wheel vehicle victories in the SCORE Baja 500. The legendary Stewart has been inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (2006), the San Diego Hall of Champions Breitbard Hall of Fame (2009) and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (2020). Driving most of his career for Toyota Motorcycles, Stewart continues as a spokesperson for Toyota Racing Development. Campbell, 52, San Clemente, Calif., is a stellar SCORE motorcycle racing champion with six career class wins including five overall victories in the SCORE Baja 500. He also has a race-record 11 overall motorcycle victories in the SCORE Baja 1000 on his resume. Campbell is also an 11-time SCORE season point champion in the Pro Moto Unlimited class on his Honda CRF450X. He also rode in the 2001 Dakar Rally, finishing eighth overall. Campbell has been inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (2018) and the Trailblazers MC Hall of Fame (2021).
