Vildosola Racing didn’t have a great SCORE Baja 500 by their standards. Gustavo Vildosola Jr., known by many as “Tavo,” spun out during his qualifying lap, putting the team much further back in the pack than they had hoped for at SCORE’s first-ever qualifying session. The team then suffered mechanical issues during the race that led to an early exit in the 500.
For this year’s Baja 1000, Tavo qualified third in Trophy Trucks and will head off the line near the front of the pack. Although this year’s race is shorter in mileage at 883.1 compared to last year’s “peninsula run” of 1121.55 miles, it will be the longest loop race ever for the 1000, and most racers expect it to be one of the toughest.
SAN DIEGO — Soften spoken and easy-going, Dan Chamlee usually lets his racing speak for itself but he will make a public appearance this week when he is featured in the SCORE spotlight during Tuesday’s Dirt LiveHD internet show at 7 p.m. (PT).

Chamlee, 51, of Cupertino, Calif., has earned eight SCORE Class 7 season point titles in his career, including straight and eight in the last nine years. Chamlee drives the No. 700 Factory Appliance Ford Ranger in the SCORE open mini-truck class where he has been near the top of the leaderboard for the last nine years.
In the three SCORE Baja races, Chamlee has won his class 12 total times including five each in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 and Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and twice in the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250.
