Bryce-Menzies-X-Games-6-26-12SAN DIEGO—While winning is very important in motorsports, consistency is equally as important for those desiring to win season championships and with a pair of podium finishes, Las Vegas’ rising star of the desert Bryce Menzies has emerged as the Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point leader in the 2013 SCORE Desert Series.  With a second place finish at the season opener at the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 and a third place at the recent Tecate SCORE Baja 500 in Ensenada, Menzies is on the verge of winning his second SCORE season championship in the last three years.

Two years removed from his double-championship rookie season of SCORE racing in 2011, Menzies will lead the thundering herd of SCORE Trophy Trucks, the high-tech, 850-horsepower, unlimited production trucks back to Mexico for November’s season-ending 46th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, the legendary granddaddy of all desert races. Over 40 SCORE Trophy Trucks are expected at the start line in Ensenada, Baja California for this year’s iconic race which will see race-week activities running from Nov. 13-17.

Menzies, who drives solo in the No. 21 Red Bull Menzies Motorsports Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy Truck, has racked up 196 points during the first two SCORE Baja races of 2013, but the star-studded class has his eight closest challengers only a total of 25 points behind him.

Baja-Designs-parkhouse_baja500-6-14-13San Marcos, CA – Congratulations to all participants in this year’s 2013 Tecate Score Baja 500 and a special thank you to Baja Designs’ Team Enlightened. Notably one of the toughest off-road races in the world, this year’s Baja 500 was an invigorating new format that stirred up the race right from the start.

New course sections, new series owner and new rules made for an especially exciting race. The 500 course was very technical, compared to recent years, which meant most race teams had no choice but to turn on their lights and drive through the night.

Baja Designs’ Team Enlightened earned a total of 19 podium finishes in 16 classes.
