Just as they did in 2010, Gustavo Vildosola Jr., Gusavo Vildosola Sr., and the Mexicana Logistics Ford Trophy Truck team have a chance to make SCORE Baja 1000 history.

Back then, the Vildosolas became the first Mexican-based team to win the prestigious SCORE Baja 1000 overall. Now, five years later, they have the chance to become the first Mexican team in history to earn the SCORE Desert World Championship. With a 22-point lead in the Desert World Championship series standings and a second-place start in in the 48th running of the Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 today, the odds are in their favor, although anything can happen. Vildosola Jr. is well aware of that, and just minutes before the start of the race he said that the team’s goal is to play it conservative in the hope locking down the SCORE series title.
