BFGoodrich Performance Team member Rob MacCachren fought the grueling conditions of the 854-mile course to make history in claiming his third consecutive SCORE Baja 1000 overall win. MacCachren joined forces with Jason Voss, who also partnered with MacCachren for the 2014 SCORE Baja 100 win, to bolster a team that took the win by nearly 27 minutes. The win culminates a year of recognition of 40 years of SCORE Baja racing for BFGoodrich Tires and marks the company’s 28th overall Baja 1000 win and 87th win on the Baja peninsula.

GREENVILLE, S.C. – BFGoodrich Tires recognizes two major milestones for the brand and the off-road industry at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The brand celebrates forty years since the introduction of its Radial All-Terrain T/A™ tire as well as its entry into SCORE Baja desert racing.
In 1975, BFGoodrich engineers traveled to Baja California, Mexico to test a new concept – a radial light truck tire for both off and on-road use. The company learned quickly that they could use the Baja peninsula as a real-life laboratory to develop tires. If they could withstand the grueling terrain of Baja, they had something.
GREENVILLE, S.C. ― To recognize the importance that racing in the Baja peninsula has had for the brand, BFGoodrich Tires has put together an enhanced contingency program for racers at the 49th Annual SCORE Baja 1000.
BFGoodrich will award $10,000 in contingency money to the overall winners of the race running exclusively on their tires.
BFGoodrich Tires unveiled its newest all-terrain tire, the KO2 T/A, back in 2014 to replace its long-standing KO all-terrain as its new flagship off-road tire. BFG just announced today that it is expanding its offerings for the KO2, a tire it hails as its “most advanced light truck tire ever.”
CRANDON, WISC. – Celebrating the 40th anniversary of both its legendary All-Terrain T/A tire and the company’s first official entry into off-road racing at the 1976 SCORE Baja 500, BFGoodrich has been named “Official Tire” of Crandon International Raceway. Today’s partnership announcement not only expands BFGoodrich’s long relationship with the “Big House,” but is an integral component to this summer’s remodeling of its historic barn and the main entrance to the track’s highly popular “BFGoodrich PRO Pit” area of Crandon’s massive 400-acre facility.
