San Luis Obispo, CA, May 27, 2011 – When the Canidae Pet Foods Off Road team decided to compete in the Trophy Truck class, they built their tough-as-nails truck with one track in mind… Baja! The Tecate SCORE Baja 500 is a magical place where legends are made and hearts are broken, along with expensive machinery.
The 43rd Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the second-oldest desert race in the world, will take Team Canidae over 500 miles of the roughest terrain that Baja has to offer this coming June 4th. Starting in Ensenada, Mexico the course will run through the scenic wine country then down to the desolate Valley de Trinidad where temperatures can reach 115 degrees. Things begin to cool down as they head toward the Pacific Ocean and then back to Ensenada. Team Canidae will have to battle more than 40 other Trophy Trucks as well as Mother Nature and Baja itself.
