Ensenada, Mexico 
–  BFGoodrich Tires and its arsenal of top off-road drivers will put the brand’s desert-conquering tires to the test at this year’s  Tecate SCORE Baja 500 in Ensenada, Mexico, starting Saturday, June 7. The 46th running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 presents the opportunity for an unprecedented 30th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 overall victory for BFGoodrich Tires in the past 35 years of racing.

Yesterday’s qualifier for starting positions at the 46th SCORE Baja 500 was held on a 3.1-mile course just outside Ojos Negros, a small agricultural town east of Ensenada. A total of 28 Trophy Trucks took the green, and Galindo Motorsports Steven Eugenio finished ninth out of the 27 trucks that took the start.

BJ Baldwin never backs down from a challenge. Most racers will be used up after competing at the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 but not BJ. He spends hours training his mind and body for the abuse that comes when racing hundreds of miles of punishing terrain without relief. He runs (and wins) the Baja 1000 solo and has completed every mile of racing in the SCORE series this season.
