301 official entries set to begin
43rd Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000

J43rd Anniversary celebration of the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 race Thursday morning in Ensenada, Baja California with the 2010 SCORE Desert Series season point championships on the line. The granddaddy of all desert races, which is the season-finale of the five-race 2010 SCORE Desert Series is being held on Mexico's magnificently mysterious Baja California peninsula through Saturday.

With 301 official entries for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs competing in 33 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs in the internationally televised race, entries have come from 37 U.S. states and 19 countries. Among the entries are 27 Pro class winners from last year's race. Late late entries will be accepted on race morning as well so the final entry total is expect to increase even more.

Massive crowds reaching nearly 250,000 are anticipated to again be spread out along the rugged 1,061.69-mile course that travels on both sides of the peninsula as the world's most famous desert race will start in Ensenada, Baja California and finish all the way down the peninsula in La Paz in Baja California Sur.

This is the 43rd anniversary of the race shrouded in mystery that continues to lure adventurers and manufacturers from across the globe who all share the dream to conquer the Baja.

The race will start on Boulevard Costero adjacent to the picturesque Bahia de Todos Santos in front of the historical Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center in the heart of Ensenada at 6:30 a.m. (PST) Thursday with the motorcycle and ATV classes, followed at approximately 11:30 a.m. with the start of the car and truck classes. It will finish on the outskirts of La Paz near the Grand Plaza Hotel, race headquarters for the southern half of the event. Vehicles will start in 30-second intervals in the elapsed-time race and all vehicles will have a 45-hour time limit to become official finishers. The fastest vehicles are expected to complete the course between 18 and 19 hours.

This year will be the 36th time in the first 43 years of the storied race that it has started in Ensenada and it will be the 18th time it has finished in La Paz.

In addition to the 37 U.S. States, racers have entered from Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Africa and the US Territory of Guam.
