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.

Jagged-X-Polaris-Off-Road-Baja-500-6-5-13Minneapolis – After Jagged X/Polaris Driver Matt Parks won the opening round of the 2013 SCORE Baja championship, at the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250, he knew he would need to share the driving duties for the second round, the 45th Tecate SCORE Baja 500.  Parks enlisted teammate Brandon Schueler, who races in the Best In The Desert series, to not only drive, but to start the race. The strategy would pay off with the Jagged X Team winning their second straight SCORE race.

“Schueler has more UTV racing experience that anyone out there and I knew he would do a great job in Baja,” Parks said.

Schueler and his co-driver Keith Redstrom took the green flag in the No. 1932 RZR XP 4 900 and kept a steady pace through the first fuel stop but encountered a huge bottleneck at the 100 mile mark where a long line of cars were stuck in a particularly nasty section. Once through the section, Schueler took after the lead UTV. Once in second place and 230 miles into the race, Schueler handed the RZR over to Parks and co-driver Jason Spiess.

THR_baja-500_SCORE-5-28-13Corona, CA – May 28th – With more than a year under their belts working together as a team for THR Motorsports / Monster Energy / Precision Concepts Kawasaki, Robby Bell, Steve Hengeveld and David Pearson know exactly what it takes to win. And as the defending overall motorcycle champions in the 45th Tecate / Monster Energy / SCORE Baja 500, they’ve added a new weapon: Taylor Robert.

The 22-year-old from Arizona may be new to racing in Baja, but he has years of experience in many other arenas. He’s the defending WORCS champion, where he’s had a solid career having won the WORCS Pro 2 championship in 2008. He’s also represented Team USA abroad, earning gold medals at ISDEs in Mexico and Germany. This year, he’s concentrating on EnduroCross both domestically and internationally thanks to the inclusion of Enduro X at X Games in Brazil, Germany, Spain and the U.S. Racing is definitely in his blood.

Defeating an overall field of 250 starters that included a race-record 35 SCORE Trophy Trucks, the Vildosolas earned a hard-fought victory on March 9 in their No. 21 Red Bull Vildosola Racing Fort F-150. Racing in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850 horsepower, unlimited trucks, the Vildosolas have 95 points as they begin their run at a hopeful first SCORE Trophy Truck season point title in the three-race 2013 SCORE Desert Series.

BJ-Baldwin-BITD-Mint-3-20-13Las Vegas, NV – BJ Baldwin is looking forward to getting back to full speed this weekend at Best In The Desert. BJ managed to finish in 12th place at the Mastercraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 despite a mechanical issue discovered during pre-race testing. The mechanical issue emerged just a few hours before the race took place, which left little time to correct it. BJ was able to compete but was not up to full speed on raceday. With the mechanical issue fixed, it will give BJ and the crew a chance for redemption.

“That’s racing; we were able to finish the race but we didn’t have the truck we needed to stay with the leaders,” said BJ, “We did our best to get some valuable points towards the SCORE Desert Series and the World Championship of Desert Racing points battle. We are back at 100% and really looking forward to the Mint 400. My truck Rampage is ready to go and it’s always good to be racing in our own back yard. The Mint 400 has been a big part of Las Vegas history. We have won it in the past; it would be great to add another Mint 400 victory to our record.”

Jesse-Jones-San-Felipe-3-20-13One hundred and twenty five miles south of the U.S. border sits an isolated community, on the shores of the Sea of Cortez. But it isn’t the scenic views, the sport fishing or the Florida like temperatures that draw over thousands of visitors in the Month of March to San Felipe. It all comes down to one reason, off-road racing!

The 27th annual MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 raced the desert of San Felipe on March 9th.  Over 250 entries were signed up for the year’s first big off-road race. It would be this race that would set the pace for most, for the rest of the season. With only 3 SCORE races taking place this season, it is important to first finish, but to also finish in a top drawing spot for the next race.
