Growing field preparing as pre-running starts Saturday
For 24th MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250



Nearly 275 cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs from 22 U.S. States, Eight countries

Including 34 SCORE Trophy-Trucks expected for March 13 desert race in Mexico




LOS ANGELESâ€â€ÂAs pre-running over the rugged race course starts Saturday for next month’s 24th Annual MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250, a growing field that includes many of the world’s best desert racers have entered this popular spring race. Attracting entries from 22 states and eight countries, the lineup includes a race-record 34 entries in SCORE Trophy-Truck, the marquee racing division for high-tech, 800-horsepower unlimited production trucks.

Round 2 of the 2010 SCORE Desert Series will be held March 12-14 in Mexico’s picturesque fishing village of San Felipe, located 120 miles south of the U.S. border on the East side of the Baja California peninsula along the azure waters of the tranquil Sea of Cortez.

With nearly 275 entries expected, which would be in the top five in race history, competition will be held in 28 Pro and 6 Sportsman classes in the 232-mile race. The green flag will drop at 6 a.m. Pacific time on Saturday, March 13, for the motorcycle and ATV classes, followed three hours later by the car and truck classes at approximately 10 a.m. local time. The start and finish line for the race will once again be the landmark San Felipe Arches on Highway 5 on the outskirts of San Felipe. One vehicle will start every 30 seconds in the elapsed-time race, with a 10-hour time limit to become an official finisher.

Following January’s season-opening SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge, the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series will visit Mexico for the first of three races in 2010.

“This year’s 24th MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 is quickly shaping up to be one of the top five races in the great history of this popular SCORE Baja race,†said Sal Fish, SCORE CEO/President. “SCORE has never had more cooperation from the Mexican authorities, the course is Baja spectacular and we are getting a superb entry listâ€â€Âall the ingredients that should add up to another amazing SCORE Baja race.â€ÂÂ

This year’s race will use a similar 232-mile race course as the past two years with a few modifications other than those caused by weather conditions. Running in a counter clockwise direction out of San Felipe up to and then parallel to Highway 3 (south side) and then south back down through three of the most picturesque and challenging washes in all of Baja.

After the start at the landmark San Felipe Arches, the race will proceed north towards Zoo Road. The area approaching the Zoo Road crossing has been bladed again, which makes it a safer approach to the popular spectator area. That area will again be fenced, have grandstands and a jump and will be patrolled so that spectators can watch the action but not put themselves in way of the action.

For the first time the course will travel east of instead of on the graded Morelia Road (after the Zoo Road junction) to the entrance to Matomi Wash. This will be one of the few times that SCORE will run through the majestic Matomi Wash before the other washes instead of following the others. After Matomi, the challenging course will run through two more of the infamous Baja canyonsâ€â€ÂHuatomote and Chanate before heading back Northwest for the final sprint to the finish line.

SCORE Trophy-Trucks have won 14 overalls in San Felipe in their 16-year history. Southern California’s Mark Post/Jerry Whelchel in 1997 and San Diego’s son/father team of Andy and Scott McMillin (2005) have the only two Class 1 wins since SCORE created the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division in 1994.

Both teams are now racing in SCORE Trophy-Truck where Post has two class and overall 4-wheel wins and the McMillins will be looking for their third consecutive SCORE Trophy-Truck race win and overall victory having won last year’s season-ending Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 and this year’s season-opening SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge.

In all nine of last year’s 10 SCORE Trophy-Truck finishers are entered led by runner-up Robby Gordon, Charlotte, N.C., the NASCAR Cup team owner/driver who won last year’s SCORE Trophy-Truck and SCORE Overall season point championship in the No. 1 Team Gordon Chevy CK1500.

Post was third last year with Rob MacCachren (who will drive the No. 20 Chevy Sivlerado this year) in the No. 3 Ford F-150 while fourth was the team of Chet Huffman, Northridge, Calif./Jerry Welchel, Portola Hills, Calif. (No. 40 Chevy C1500) and fifth was Adam Householder, Orange, Calif. (No. 24 Chevy Silverado).

Sixth last year in SCORE Trophy-Truck was Las Vegas’ B.J. Baldwin (No. 97 Chevy Silverado) while the balance of the SCORE Trophy-Truck finishers were Las Vegas’ Troy Herbst (No. 49 Ford F-150), Robbie Pierce, Santee, Calif. (No. 30 Chevy Silverado), Greg Nunley, Visalia, Calif. (No. 10 Chevy Silverado) and Ed Stout, Santa Ana, Calif. (No. 13 Chevy Silverado).

Desert racers Ron Whitton of Arizona and Southern California’s Robby Bell received the first starts for four-wheel and two-wheel vehicles in the computerized drawing for starting positions held Feb. 13. Whitton races in the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division while Bell competes in Class 22 for open motorcycles.

Drawing the first starting slot for the unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars was Germany’s Armin Schwarz and teammate Martin Christensen, Escondido, Calif. Riding the first ATV off the line will be Class 25 team led by Wayne Matlock, El Cajon, Calif.

Whitton, Mesa, Ariz., and his co-driver Chas Dana were fifth and 10th respectively in last year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

A friend of mine from Riverside is thrashing to get his RZR ready for San Felipe. He hasn't signed up yet...so it looks like it might be eight! At some point I will talk to Sal about making the UTV class a Pro class. It will cost a little more, but there will be pay back and the cache of being 'Pro' like in BITD. :)

The first of 3 Baja SCORE Races is upon us! Here is the starting order for the 6 UTV's entered.

I spoke with Casey Currie the other day and he may be entering in his Kawasaki Teryx. I will keep you all posted!!

Hmmm interesting. Anyone know the entry fee? I know San Felipe is just a whoop fest, could be gnarly...
 
Well the first 60 miles are whooped out, but then again they changed the course this year. They cut off the part to Matias Pass. San Felipe is one of the best races around. Very fun. I have raced it on a bike and in a class 12 car. I raced the Baja 250 (won!) in 2007 in a UTV, but it wasn't San Flippy. SF250 is a race where you need to keep your car 'under you'...understand? It really isn't THAT gnarly, you just need to be smart with speed and fuel. :)

Hmmm interesting. Anyone know the entry fee? I know San Felipe is just a whoop fest, could be gnarly...
 
Well I think a UTV would be hard to keep "on top" of the whoops for 60 miles... Could be brutal in a UTV....
 
Well until VERY recently, I haven't seen a SxS that can get 'on top of the whoops,' I mean San Felipe Whoops...and stay there for more than a few miles. The first 60 miles of SF (now 50 miles) are brutal, but then again you are racing the other UTV's, not trying to impress someone. The UTV class is an awesome one, we keep going faster, but reliabilty or the size of our balls keeps us from improving as fast as we should. :)

Well I think a UTV would be hard to keep "on top" of the whoops for 60 miles... Could be brutal in a UTV....
 
I am on the fence if I can make it to SF or not to watch and cover. I know Rusty is going to go. I still do not have my border pass or passport so thats my real hitch..need to pull the trigger soon....
 
Ive "heard" you can show your receipt for your passport and make it back acrossed. but seems kinda sketchy to me.
 
yeah Birth Cert. and ID usually works along with a reciept I have heard as well but to get flown out in an emergency you have to have a passport.....
 
I will be there. I will be chasing for AGM and shooting pics. Once our class 1 car clears my pit I will fall back and chase the UTV class. I will be shooting pics and trying to help anyone I can. PM me your race frequency if your are going to race and I will monitor it.
