ENSENADA, Mexico – Radar Tires enters this weekend’s 46th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 with two goals: win the Class 10 race and earn Radar Tires the Class 10 Unlimited championship title in the tire manufacturer’s inaugural off-road racing season.
Both goals are attainable based on the performance of Mike Johnson and Mike Majeksy, co-drivers of the No. 1031 Radar Tires Buggy. In March, during the SCORE International Baja 250, Johnson and Majeksy earned a third-place Class 10 Unlimited finish. Then Johnson raced solo during the Baja 500 in May and earned Radar Tires’ first long course, off-road racing win. As a result of the two podium finishes this season, Johnson heads into this weekend’s endurance race leading the Class 10 championship by just two points.
This week, Johnson and Majesky have been pre-running the course with the Bronson Motorsports team. The drivers and team have been inspecting the terrain, and setting the race strategy and pit stop locations to ensure they are set and prepared for the main event this weekend.
