All live events, this will be the 47th weekly Dirt LiveHD episode to air. Replays of previous Dirt LiveHD shows are kept in an electronic library on the dirtlive.com website.
Bacal, Anthem, Ariz., a 2010 SCORE season class point champion in Stock Full, won both the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 this year in the No. 8115 Lexus LX570. Bacal did not win this year’s season title as racers were required to run all three SCORE Baja races to qualify for a point title.
From Ensenada, Mexico, Hanna, who has now won the Class 7SX season point crown for four consecutive seasons, won all three SCORE races this year in his No. 740 Ford Ranger.
Matt Parks, Newport Beach, Calif., in his rookie season racing with SCORE, won the first two races of the year and clinched the season point title in Class 19 with his second place finish out of 19 starters in his class, in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. He drives the No. 1932 Polaris RZRXP4 in the new SCORE Pro racing class for stock UTVs.
