Cadiente to Defend SCORE Baja 250 WIN

Mesa, Arizona (March 1, 2007) Garron Cadiente heads to Mexico to defend his stellar win at the 2006 SCORE San Felipe 250 desert race. Cadiente's No. 38 Geiser-built trophy truck will feature an updated version of paint design utilizing SIKKENS Paint, a recently-signed associate sponsor to the G&R Racing program. With the addition of TrailReady Beadlock, SIKKENS Paint, K&N Air Filters, Orlando Auto Body and increased support from UPR, team manager, Brian Godfrey, has recently updated the graphic design of both the No. 38 and No. 39 G&R Racing race trucks.

Both race trucks are slated for duty at the SCORE Baja 250, to be held on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Ensenada, Baja California. Over 375 entries from 15 U.S States, Mexico, Canada, England, Italy and New Zealand will line up on Avenida Ruiz and charge into the desert of Mexico for the 21st Annual SCORE Baja 250.

Cadiente, the defending champion in this race, explained his calculated strategy for the race, "The change of venues from San Felipe to Ensenada is going to make for a slightly different race. Although the distance is similar, the terrain is vastly different. We are focused on performance at each of the Baja series races this year and this will be a great precursor to the SCORE Baja 500 and the Baja 1000. I'm confident heading to next weekend's race. At only 216 miles, this is going to be a straight out sprint to the finish. Last year, we won this sprint, so we'll see what happens."

Racing in Mexico is a favorite for G&R Racing, especially after Ron Whitton claimed an impressive third place finish at the prestigious SCORE Baja 1000 last November.

"Racing in the SCORE Baja 1000 and finishing in third position topped off a great rookie year in the desert and I really look forward to the SCORE Baja races. The No. 39 Geiser-built trophy truck is ready to go," commented Whitton.
