As entries continue to arrive from all over the world and across the United States for the 45th anniversary of the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, all the elements for the SCOREville exhibit at the upcoming Off-Road Expo at the Fairplex in Pomona, California, are being finalized as well, including the live drawing for starting positions for the granddaddy of all desert races.
The SCOREville exhibit at the Off-Road Expo will salute SCORE Baja Legends and the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame on October 6 and 7.
In addition to static displays of vintage and current desert racing vehicles along with autograph sessions with many of the stars of the sport, both past and present, a live drawing for starting positions for this November’s 45th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race will be held at the Off-Road Expo on Saturday, October 6.
The official course map for the race will be unveiled during the event. SCORE will also announce and introduce the grand marshals for this year’s historic event.
On both October 6 and Oct. 7, autograph sessions will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at SCOREville with many of the top desert racers from today and yesterday.
The November 14-17 race runs down the length of the Mexico’s majestic Baja California peninsula, starting in Ensenada, Baja California and finishing in La Paz, Baja California Sur.
Nearly 300 entries, from nearly 20 countries and 40 US states, competing in 35 Pro and six Sportsman classes for cars, truck, motorcycles and ATVs are expected to compete in this year’s international adventure. While late entries will be accepted up until race morning on November 15, in order to be included in the start draw at SCOREville, entries must be received by SCORE no later than noon on Tuesday, October 2.
SCOREville at the Expo will also include a major display from the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame as well as a pictorial tribute timeline to the first 44 years of the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 through the lenses of Trackside Photography.
SCORE will also debut the official commemorative merchandise of the 45th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. SCOREville will also feature the SCOREville theatre showing numerous SCORE Baja 1000 race videos including the iconic 2004 film “Dusty to Glory”.
