     As rider of record, Creel’s teams also finished second in Pro Moto Limited and second in Pro Moto 30. As a co-driver for Luis Pelayo, also of Mexico City, Creel finished 18th in Trophy Truck Spec.


     Besides podium finishers Arciero, A. McMillin and Vildosola Jr, all of the top 19 overall four-wheel vehicle finishers were SCORE Trophy Trucks.

Finishing second behind Parkhouse, three minutes, 40 seconds behind Parkhouse, was reigning SCORE Class 1 season point champion Brad Wilson, Long Beach, Calif., in the No. 100 Jimco-Chevy.


     Enjoying his joyous victory celebration with his famous father and team at the finish line, Arciero said, “It was a great race for us. We started in the middle of the SCORE Trophy Truck field and I knew Andy McMillin was just two trucks in front of us. I used Andy as a guide for most of the race. Everything was smooth for us today and the new Joe Gibbs Racing motor was sensational. Great power and we have NASCAR guys in off-road which is a super crossover in the sport. We didn’t quite know where we stood overall with so many trucks bunched up and running very close.”

     “The dust made it tougher for the SCORE Trophy Trucks and we just had to work our way through the field as best we could. I’m excited that my dad (Frank Arciero Jr) could make it down to this race too. He got me started in the sport and it’s fun to celebrate an overall win with him. We knew we needed a good finish for the starting position in the upcoming SCORE Baja 1000. And we couldn’t have done better than taking the victory today.”


     Leading his team to its seventh consecutive overall and Pro Moto Unlimited race win in SCORE races over two years, Morgan reflected after the race, “The race was fairly smooth; we had a couple small close calls without having a helicopter. Ricky had a really good crash and knocked himself out. He got up and managed to make a little time back. I had to do my best to make up the time when I got the bike back. No mechanical issues the bike was awesome all day. Mark did really good and made up some good time. He rode the course really smooth up the coast. Ricky is fine he was totally ok after the race just had an unlucky crash. We have lots to build on and work on for the SCORE Baja 1000. But it was a really awesome course to run. We are really happy to get the win."


     After three races, there remained just two unbeaten racers in their respective classes for this season.

     Leading the group was the Justin Morgan team (Pro Moto Unlimited—No. 1x Honda CRF450R).

     The other three-time 2019 2-wheel class winner was Giovanni Spinali, El Cajon, Calif. (Pro Moto 50—No. 500x Yamaha YZ450FX). Spinali’s teammates were Troy Pearce, Ramona, Calif./John Griffin, Lake Forest, Calif.
