June 4th saw the 43rd running of the historic SCORE Baja 500 in Ensenada, Mexico. KTM riders Ivan Ramirez and Brandon Prieto rode their way to a third place finish on their 2011 450SX-F.

Third time is a charm for team sponsor Bonanza Plumbing. The extreme nature of the Baja is a test of both riders and machinery. In just their third attempt racing in Mexico the team was able to put together all of the elements of a successful ride: bike, rider and support team.

Starting 9th off the line, lead rider Ivan Ramirez quickly worked his way into fourth position. “I actually like starting last because it gives me people to pass…keeps me focused and motivated” says Ivan. At the mile 100 mark, Ivan was up to third position on the course and nearly tied with the lead bikes on adjusted time.

SCORE International released the official results of the 43rd Tecate SCORE Baja 500, which shook up drivers at the top of the field, most notably the unofficial winners in Pro Motorcycle Colton Udall and David Kamo, who moved behind JCR Honda teammates Kendall Norman and Quinn Cody after receiving penalties.
