RENO, Nev.—SCORE International, the global desert racing organization that has held events for over four decades on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, has joined the massive relief efforts to assist the thousands of people impacted by last Sunday’s devastating Category 3 Hurricane Odile. While the hurricane pummeled the entire peninsula, especially hard hit was the southern State of Baja California Sur.
In the midst of final preparations for November’s 47th Annual SCORE Baja 1000 that will start in Ensenada and finish in La Paz, SCORE has been working with Cruz Roja Mexicana (the Mexican Red Cross) since this terrible event to facilitate movement of supplies down the length of the peninsula.
In the wake of Hurricane Odile, off-road racers are mobilizing to aid the people of Baja California who are suffering in the wake of the devastating Category 3 Hurricane Odile that hit the Baja peninsula hard on Sunday.

BFGoodrich recently unveiled its newest all-terrain tire, the T/A KO2. This is the fourth-generation all-terrain tire for the company, and it’s the first introduced in 15 years since the T/A KO was launched back in 1999. The KO was greeted with high marks by hard-core off-roaders and weekend warriors alike for its great off-road performance matched with good on-road characteristics, and many ways it was the benchmark for which all-terrain tires were measured over the past decade and a half.
Once again, a diverse field of over 200 trucks, sedans, buggies and motorcycles are expected to take on a 1,300-plus mile, four-day on and off-road rally from the starting line in Ensenada, Baja, Mexico to the white sand beaches of the resort destination of San Jose Del Cabo at land’s end.
