Final entry list for Baja 500

Over 230 entries from 20 U.S. states, 15 countries celebrating SCORE’s 41st anniversary

ENSENADA, Mexico—After two weeks of determined pre-running and two days of fun-filled pre-race festivities, 232 sturdy racers from 20 U.S. States, competing in classes for cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and ATVs, are ready for the green flag to drop Saturday morning at the 46th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race.

Defending race champion Robby Gordon, Charlotte, N.C. (in photo) has returned to his desert-racing roots and posted the fastest qualifying time Thursday to earn the first starting position in for Round 3 of the 2014 SCORE World Desert Championship, being held in Mexico’s Baja California Norte, starting and finishing in Ensenada, the seaside port on the Pacific Ocean, 86 miles south of San Diego.

SCORE is celebrating its 41st year as the world’s foremost desert racing organization in 2014 and this is an elapsed-time race with staggered starts as the green flag on Saturday will drop first for the motorcycles and ATVs at 5:45 a.m. and approximately 10 a.m. for the cars, trucks and UTVs. All vehicles will have 18-hour time limits to be an official finisher in the 447.86-mile race. The fastest finishers are expected to complete the rugged race course in approximately nine hours.

With 232 entries competing in 25 Pro and 5 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and ATVs, entries to date have come from 20 U.S. States and the U.S. Territory of Guam along with Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, France, Germany, Great Britain, Guatemala, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands and Spain.

The race will be televised on a delayed basis in the USA, Canada and U.S. Territories as a one-hour special on the CBS Sports Network. The show, being produced by SoCal’s acclaimed BCII TV, will air for one week on the CBS Sports Spectacular show with the initial airing at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Following a week of airing the CBS Sports Network telecasts, the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 show will air worldwide in over 100 countries through international distribution.
