SCORE Legend Johnny Johnson Passes Away

SCORE International and the off-road racing community are saddened to announce the recent passing of SCORE Legend Johnny Johnson from a recent discovery of Liver Cancer. Johnny had just recently celebrated his 80th Birthday and was one of off-road motorsports' major icons and larger than life characters.
Johnny Johnson was one of the early champions in off-road racing with 112 career class victories from 1968 -1992. This included fifteen SCORE Baja 1000’s and four SCORE Baja 500 class wins, where he proudly claims “l never got out of the car!” Johnson was one of the very very best in the dirt. He was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2010. Revered by his fellow racers for his fabrication and tuning skills, it is his humility and willingness to help anyone, anytime, that his friends say is his defining trait. SCORE's heartfelt condolences go out to Johnny's family.
