ENSENADA, MEXICO – BFGoodrich Tires, the official tire of the SCORE International desert racing series, captured four of the top five overall positions, in addition to equipping seven of the top 10 Trophy Trucks at the 46th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Additionally, BFGoodrich claimed wins in 10 classes, including defending its title in the Baja Challenge Class as Team BFGoodrich’s BC2 team claimed victory by a margin of more than four hours.
Team BFGoodrich Member Rob MacCachren, paired with fellow Team BFGoodrich member Andy McMillin, placed second overall with a time of 18 hours and 45 minutes, just nine minutes behind overall race winner BJ Baldwin. In what was billed as a brutal 883 mile race course, the 2013 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 lived up to every bit of the hype resulting in a large number of vehicles not finishing the race. Overall, the finish rate was under 50 percent due to the difficulty of the course and the 36 hour time limit. Four-wheel vehicles on BFGoodrich Tires accounted for nearly 65 percent of all finishers.
