Class 10 Winner Mike Johnson #1031
Mike Johnson bested a field of 21 other racers in Class 10 to earn the victory at the 2013 SCORE Baja 500. Johnson finished well ahead of the field, crossing the finish line more than 40 minutes faster than second-place finisher Brad Wilson. Kash Vessels rounded out the podium in third place.
“It was a brutal course. I’ve got to commend Roger (Norman) for laying that one out,” Johnson said. “That was a lot of fun and had every element in the world in it. All the sections were different but they were all equally as challenging. From the beginning there was dust to deal with, then a summit to deal with and then you got in the sand. You had all of the whoops going into Borrego and then up Mike’s Sky Ranch road it got treacherous. As soon as you got onto the Pacific side there was another section of silt, sand and rocks.
