MEXICO’S GANADORS MUY FAMOSO
Considered the first family of Mexican desert racers, Gustavo Vildosola Sr and his son Gustavo ‘Tavo’ Vildosola Jr are both entered in the SCORE Baja 400.
From Mexicali, Gustavo, 69, and Tavo, 41, are both veteran SCORE champion racers with numerous race wins and season point titles on their impressive resumes.
For this year’s SCORE Baja 400, they will be in different trucks, one in SCORE TT Legend (SCORE Trophy Truck drivers over 50 years old) and the other in SCORE Trophy Truck.
Vildosola Sr will drive the No. 1L all-wheel drive Mexicana Logistics Ford Raptor built by Mason Motorsports in SCORE TT Legend.
Vildosola Sr won the 2022 SCORE TT Legend (drivers over 50 years old) season point title following undefeated season with four straight victories. Vildosola Sr, also won the SCORE TT Legend season point championship in 2018 with Scott Bailey as a second driver.
He won in all four races in 2022 with help from legendary Hall of Fame racer Ricky Johnson, 58, El Cajon, Calif. who drove the first half of each race.
The dynamic duo started the 2023 SCORE World Desert Championship with Vildosola Sr winning the SCORE TT Legend class once again and Vildosola Jr finishing fifth in SCORE Trophy Turck. In the SCORE Baja 500 this year, Vildosola Sr continued his SCORE TT Legend winning streak while Vildosola Jr finished in 12th place in SCORE Trophy Truck.
Vildosola Sr also has three career SCORE Trophy Truck race wins in his illustrious career in SCORE desert racing. Vildosola Sr, who has raced in many classes in his illustrious career.
Gustavo ‘Tavo’ Vildosola Jr drives the No. 21 all-wheel drive Mexicana Logistics Ford Raptor built by Vildosola racing in SCORE Trophy Truck.
Vildosola Sr won SCORE TT Legend in the 2022 SCORE Baja 400.
He may not play a musical instrument or carry a note singing, yet he is another of the many second-generation champion SCORE desert racers. Cameron ‘Steele-y Cam’ Steele is not only a two-time SCORE Trophy Truck race winner he is also the affable leader of the Desert Assassins race team.
He also finds time to help operate his SoCal Baja HQ aftermarket company, lead both an annual motorcycle and his annual ‘Trail of Missions’ truck tour down the Baja peninsula, emcee numerous events, host live stream internet shows, and is an action sport TV commentator who has announced a variety of competitions from IndyCar to the SCORE race coverage TV shows. And a huge supporter of orphanages in Baja California.
As far as racing is concerned, Steele, 55, of San Clemente, Calif., loves to stay busy and in years past has competed and had podium finishes in multiple classes in the same race, but now focuses on his No. 16 Desert Assassins Ford Raptor, built by Geiser Bros, in SCORE Trophy Truck.
Steele won the last two SCORE Trophy Truck races of the 2018 season after finishing second in the iconic 50th anniversary of the legendary SCORE Baja 1000 in 2017.
Steele’s second driver will once again be third-generation champion racer Ryan Arciero, 49, Foothill Ranch, Calif., who has four career SCORE Trophy Truck race wins, including the inaugural SCORE Baja 400 in 2019.
While Steele is hunting for his first class win in this race, Ryan won the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck division in the inaugural 2019 SCORE Baja 400.
The Steele/Arciero pair opened the 2023 season with a 17th place finish in SCORE Trophy Truck in the SCORE San Felipe 250 and followed that up with a rare DNF in the SCORE Baja 500.
Another of the many family entries in the SCORE Baja 500 is the Lawrence family of Banning, Calif. that features two generations of racers, a nephew and his uncle racing in two separate classes in Lawrence Equipment race trucks.
In Ensenada the Lawrence family has one entry in SCORE Trophy Truck and one in SCORE TT Legend.
Both with top finishes and championships, Mikey Lawrence, 35, is the driver of record in the No. 85 GMC truck built by Herbst-Smith Fab in SCORE Trophy Truck while his uncle Clay Lawrence, 61, is the driver of record in the No. 85L GMC truck also built by Herbst-Smith Fab in SCORE TT Legend.
A former SCORE class point champion (Class 10 in 2008, 2009, 2012), Mikey Lawrence opened the 2023 campaign with a 19th place finish in SCORE Trophy Truck while his uncle Clay Lawrence finished on the podium in second place in SCORE TT Legend. In this year’s SCORE Baja 500, Mikey finished 15th and Clay finished on the podium in third place in their respective classes.
Mikey Lawrence finished the 2022 SCORE World Desert Championship in third place in SCORE Trophy Truck points while Clay Lawrence ended up second in SCORE TT Legend points.
In the SCORE Baja 400, Mikey Lawrence has finishes of 22nd, 13th, and 15th. In this new race, Clay Lawrence has results of DNF, sixth and second. The first two years he raced in Trophy Truck spec and in SCORE TT Legend last year.
Another second and third generation SCORE race team, Myers racing returned to SCORE in 2021 after an absence for several years. The famous SoCal racing family is back in a major way with two family members in SCORE Trophy Truck. Both are part of the powerful Toyota Escondido TE Motorsports Team.
Dan Myers, 44, Newport Beach, Calif., will be driver of record in SCORE Trophy Truck while his younger brother Andrew Myers, 43 of San Marcos will be in another SCORE Trophy Truck.
Dan and Andrew’s older brother Steve Myers, 57 of Newport Beach, is waiting for a third SCORE Trophy Truck to be finished but will be available again as an additional driver for Dan Myers.
Dan Myers will be racing in SCORE Trophy Truck in the No. 6 TE Motorsports Toyota Tundra built by SCORE racer Robby Gordon while Andrew Myers will drive in SCORE Trophy Truck in his No. 69 Toyota Tundra built by Herbst-Smith Fab.
A second-generation SCORE race team, Dan Myers and Andrew Myers have both had their share of race wins in SCORE racing over the years as they continue this current Myers family adventure.
Dan Myers was sixth in points out of 44 racers in SCORE Trophy Truck last year, finishing all four races with a season-high 10th place finish in the SCORE Baja 1000. Andrew Myers only raced in last year’s SCORE Baja 400 where he was a DNF.
The biggest Myers family SCORE class win was in 2000 when Steve Myers was the driver of record and split the driving with his brothers Dan and Andrew to win Class 10 in the epic new millennium race of nearly 1,700 miles that started in Ensenada and finished in Cabo San Lucas.
Andrew was away from desert racing for the most part for nearly a decade as he pursued a NASCAR stock car racing career. During his NASCAR years he competed in the Truck Series, the ARCA Series as well as both the NASCAR Pro Series West and the NASCAR Pro Series East.
In this year’s season-opening SCORE San Felipe 250, Andrew Myers finished fourth in SCORE Trophy Truck out of 39 starters while Dan Myers suffered a DNF. In the 2023 SCORE Baja 500, Andrew finished eighth in class and Dan was 13th.
CONCRETE MOTORSPORTS X2
After struggling to reach the finish line for a few years, back in SCORE Baja races after a short sabbatical and two trucks, Kevin Thompson and Harley Letner will each be driving in the SCORE Trophy Truck class in their No. 70 and their No. 71 Concrete Motorsports Chevy Silverado trucks. One is built by Herbst/Smith Fab and the other by Mason Motorsports.
Working hard to build their resume as a team in SCORE Baja racing, Thompson, 48, New Braunfels, Texas and third-generation SCORE racer Letner, 39, have won several races and titles in domestic races in the U.S.
So far in this year’s SCORE races, the team finished 11th in San Felipe and 14th in the SCORE Baja 500 in their new AWD No. 70 Chevy Silverado built by Mason Motorsports.
For this year’s SCORE Baja 400, Letner will drive the Concrete Motorsports No. 71 Chevy Silverado built by SoCal’s Herbst/Smith Fab.
Letner and his late cousin Kory Halopoff teamed for years in SCORE racing, winning several titles and races, including the overall victory in the 2009 SCORE Baja 500.
The Wells go deep in Utah and Risq Racing of Hurricane, Utah, is all about the Wells family racing team.
A two-generation desert racing team, family patriarch Travis Wells, and his wife Libby, both of Apple Valley, Utah, own the Risq Racing race team than includes their son Kaden Wells, 24, Hurricane, Utah.
Emma Cornwell, daughter of SCORE Tech Director Dan Cornwell, is the navigator for Kaden Wells.
After four season class point titles in five years (2018, 2019, 2021, 2022) Kaden Wells in the Pro UTV NA (Naturally Aspirated) class, has moved up to the Pro UTV Open class in 2023 and drives the team’s new No. 1895 Risq Racing Polaris RZR Pro R.
In the 2022 SCORE season, Wells had a pair of third-place podium finishes followed by a pair of class wins to secure his fourth season point championship.
Wells made it to the finish line at the 2023 SCORE San Felipe 250 as 13th out of 17 starters in the Pro UTV Open class. It was his debut in the elite Pro UTV Open class. In this year’s SCORE Baja 500, Wells finished 12th out of 20 starters in his class.
Lawrence Janesky is a successful businessman from Middlebury, Connecticut, who started riding dirt bikes late at age 32 with his brother. When his son Tanner turned five, Lawrence got him on a dirt bike and the two have been riding together ever since. Years later, after touring in Utah, South Africa, and Columbia, the two decided to tour with Chris Haines Baja Motorcycle Adventure Tours where they first learned about the SCORE Baja 1000. The two later teamed up with the Hall of Famer Haines as their team manager and raced their first SCORE Baja 1000 in 2015, winning the Sportsman Motorcycle Class.
From that humble start, Lawrence and his son Tanner quickly morphed into racing several times in the Pro Moto Ironman class for solo riders, especially attempting to finish the iconic SCORE Baja 1000.
What evolved from their inspirational efforts were four separate memorable You Tube documentaries: Into the Dust, Into the Dust2, Into the Dust3 and Into the Dust4 which have had nearly five million views.
Lawrence Janesky, 58, has entered the Pro UTV NA (Naturally Aspirated) class. in the No. 1914 Honda Talon.
In this year’s SCORE San Felipe 250, Lawrence Janesky opened the season with a fourth-place finish in Pro UTV NA and he also led a team in the Sportsman Motorcycle class where they finished fifth out of nine starters in the class. Racing in just the Pro UTV NA class, Janesky finished second in this year’s SCORE Baja 500.
As of today, Tanner Janesky, 28, has not entered this race. He finished second in this year’s SCORE San Felipe 250 in Pro Moto Ironman in his only SCORE race this season.
In the SCORE Baja 400, Lawrence Janesky finished second in 2021 in Pro Moto 50 as a second rider and he did not race this event in either 2019 or 2022.
CPR—MOVIN’ ON UP
Building experience and adding some years under his belt along the trail upwards, SoCal’s youthful dynamo Christopher Polvoorde, Hemet, Calif., led the SCORE Overall point standings for three races in 2022 and the massive Trophy Truck Spec class as well until an untimely DNF in the SCORE Baja 1000 stopped his championship run.
But the young buck is back! And he has moved up to the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division starting with this year’s SCORE Baja 400.
He started the 2022 with a season-opening Trophy Truck Spec class victory at the King Shocks 35th SCORE San Felipe 250 that saw a race-high 36 starters in his class. this year in San Felipe, Polvoorde finished 10th out of a SCORE record 43 starters in his class. He also finished 17th in the Spec class this year in the SCORE Baja 500.
Polvoorde may be just 23 years old, but he has already been racing for 10 years and has evolved quickly into a SCORE Baja racing championship contender.
He followed up his San Felipe victory last year with a fourth place finish out of 32 starters in Trophy Truck Spec at the SCORE Baja 500 the drove back to the top of the podium over 24 starters for another class win at the SCORE Baja 400.
Polvoorde has raced in many different disciplines including Short Course, Desert Racing, Rally Racing, Midget Racing, Robby Gordon’s Stadium Trucks, Kart Racing and the King of the Hammers where he won his class in 2022.
When he isn’t driving four-wheel race vehicles, he also is an avid mountain bike enthusiast in his limited spare time.
While his own new SCORE Trophy Truck is still being built, Polvoorde will be driving this race in the Walser Motorsports No. 94 Optima Batteries Ford Raptor built by Mason Motorsports. He has teamed with Mike Walser (No. 89) for the final two races of the year and they plan to race together in the No. 89 SCORE Truck Truck for the season-ending SCORE Baja 1000.
Polvoorde currently works for his family’s construction business in Hemet.
Josh Cobb, 24, Wittmann, Ariz., is launching something very interesting and exciting in this year’s SCORE Baja 400. A veteran of domestic desert racing in the U.S., and a second-generation desert racer, Josh Cobb is still cutting his teeth in the SCORE World Desert Championship.
After winning the TrophyLite Class in last year’s SCORE Baja 1000, he is moving up to the ultra-competitive Trophy Truck Spec class in a custom-made Ford that definitely has some tremendous racing history in its background.
Cobb, driving the TrophyLite No. 206 Custom-Ford in this year’s SCORE Baja 400 and SCORE Baja 1000, the legacy of the race truck is truly very special.
His father, former SCORE racing champion Jason Cobb, enthusiastically comments, “Exciting times for sure for the Cobb family. My son Josh will be making his Trophy Truck Spec debut at the SCORE Baja 400 in preparation for the SCORE Baja 1000. Josh has some tremendous accomplishments including a win at last year’s SCORE Baja 1000 in the TrophyLite Class. This is obviously a huge jump but we feel he is more than ready to take on the best that this class has to offer.”
The history of his new custom truck is extremely impressive. It started as a Factory Ford race truck that was originally built for Rob MacCachren in 1996. This truck was built for Baja to knock Toyota off the top of the mountain. While it did not finish the SCORE Baja 1000 in 1996, it won the SCORE Baja 500 and finished 2nd in the SCORE Trophy Truck season point championship.
Another interesting part of the truck’s lineage is that SCORE's own Roger Norman owned and raced the truck in the SCORE Baja 500 and SCORE Baja 1000 before moving on to his current tuck. This unique truck was way before its time and has true potential to continue to compete in the Trophy Truck Spec class.
The Cobb family is looking to add to the remarkable legacy of this truck during the 50th Anniversary of SCORE this year.
Following several seasons as a co-rider on winning Pro motorcycle age group classes, Brandon Wright, 46, Oak Hills, Calif. races in Pro Moto Ironman (for solo riders) class where he won the season championship in his class and earned the 2022 SCORE Overall Motorcycle title as well with a victory in the SCORE San Felipe 250, second-place finishes in the SCORE Baja 500 and SCORE Baja 400 and a third-place finish in the SCORE Baja 1000 out of 20 starters this year.
As the season class point champion, Wright rides the No. 700x Husqvarna FE501 motorcycle.
After a pre-running accident for the SCORE Baja 1000 caused him to withdraw from the race, he later decided (with approval from his doctor) to re-enter the race and he courageously battled to a podium finish to earn his two crowns.
In this year’s season opener in San Felipe, the Pro Moto Ironman had a race-record 17 starters and Wright earned a podium finish in third place to start his 2023 campaign. Wright followed that up with a first-place finish in his class in the SCORE Baja 500 to take the lead again in this very special motorcycle class.
Starting the 2023 SCORE World Desert Championship with his first race win, Alirio Amado, 45, The Woodlands, Texas, is the rider of record in Pro Moto 40 (riders over 40 years old), on his No. 441x Yamaha WR450F motorcycle.
For this race, Amada is going to use his normal four-rider team including Pedro Gonzalez, 58, Raleigh, North Carolina, Jim Jaros, 48, Pennsylvania and Curtis Lisenby, 58, Houston.
In his third season racing with SCORE, Amado finished second in the Pro Moto 40 class point standings with second place finishes in the 2022 SCORE Baja 400 and another second in the SCORE Baja 1000. His other two finishes in 2022 were third place in the SCORE San Felipe 250 for three podium finishes and a fourth place in the 2022 SCORE Baja 500.
Amado and his talented team won again in their class in this year’s SCORE Baja 500, pushing them into a big lead in their class point standings midway through the 2023 SCORE World Desert Championship.
It is an elapsed-time race with staggered starts with the green flag dropping on Saturday (Sept. 16). Motorcycles and Quads will start at 5:30 a.m. PT, Cars, Trucks, and UTVs will start at 8:15. When finalized, the race course will be 386.42 miles. While the fastest vehicles will finish in about eight hours, the elapsed-time race will have a 16-hour time limit to become an official finisher.
