Tomorrow morning, 242 race teams will embark on an epic off-road journey for the 2015 Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000. Covering more than 820 miles of treacherous terrain in Baja California, Mexico, the racers will begin and end their day at the start/finish line in Ensenada. Motorcycles and ATVs will begin the race at 6 a.m. with racers leaving in 30-second intervals, while the trucks, buggies and UTVs will leave five hours later at 11 a.m.

The unlimited Trophy Truck class will be first off the line at 11, and aside from the fame and the glory of taking home a SCORE Baja 1000 victory, there’s also a tight battle on the line for the class championship. Last year’s winner, Steven Eugenio, sits in fifth place in points but is essentially out of the running to defend his title this year, but he knows there’s still plenty on the line in tomorrow’s race.
