To help highlight the very diverse lineup of products produced by both Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, (YMUS) and Yamaha Corporation of America (YCA), the two brands partnered to show YMUS’s lineup of powersports products and vehicles along with YCA’s musical instruments to highlight one of “the most comprehensive and diverse displays of Yamaha products ever seen in one location” at this year’s 2016 LA Auto Show. The display is the visual representation of the brand’s new One Yamaha campaign.
We expect to see major carnage on some of those crazy hill climbs down south or even out in the dunes where people are skying their side-by-sides.

ENSENADA, Mexico — While deservedly grabbing the majority of the headlines will be the battle in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division for 850-horsepower high-tech, unlimited production trucks, this week’s internationally-televised iconic 49th annual SCORE Baja 1000 desert race will also include everyman racers from across the U.S. and around the world along with nearly two dozen cross-over racers from other motorsports disciplines as well as business leaders and entertainers.
Season finale of the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship, this year’s competition will be a loop race, starting and finishing in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, 65 miles south of the U.S. Border at San Diego.
Greenville, S.C., Nov. 14, 2016 – BFGoodrich Tires, the official tire of SCORE International, is proud to mark 40 years of competing in Baja desert racing this year. What began as an entry for testing purpose in 1976, on an Oldsmobile Starfire with Fritz Kroyer has exploded into one of the great success stories in off-road racing.
Over 40 years, BFGoodrich has 86 overall wins in SCORE Baja racing, more than all other tire manufacturers combined. Those early racing successes also launched a revolutionary new tire category that contributed to the growth of the entire light-truck and four-wheel-drive industry.
In the rare chance that you get the opportunity to spend some time with the Godfrey Clan, consider yourself warned. Don’t get us wrong, they are a stand up bunch of folks. They just have a tendency to push things to the limit… and then some. Take their new video for example, Chaos in Caineville. The title pretty much sums it up.
