Ensenada, Baja California Mexico – Five hundred miles of Baja terrain is always a huge test. At the 48th annual SCORE Baja 500, Mother Nature threw another hurdle into the mix. Not only would competitors travel up and over the summit, run the San Felipe loop, then race back to Ensenada, but they would have to do it in blistering, triple digit temperatures. The heat presented a very serious condition that nobody took lightly. Mechanical parts failed, helicopters broke down, many racers were sidelined with heat stroke; one unfortunately lost his life. The Honda Ridgeline team had to manage the temperature of their race truck, and their bodies.
