Tavo-THUMB-Vildosola-SCORE-San-Felipe-250-3-10-13SAN DIEGO—Following final additional data tracking review of their two respective classes, race officials have confirmed youthful SoCal desert racers Cody Parkhouse and Mike Lawrence as class winners in last weekend’s 27th Annual MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 desert race in San Felipe, Mexico.

Following data tracking review and the assessment of penalties for various infractions from missing a virtual check point or a deviation from the prescribed course, Mexico’s vastly popular father/son team of Gustavo Vildosola/Gustavo Vildosola Jr powered past a talented field of 250 starters Saturday to capture the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck victory.

Driving the No. 21 Red Bull Vildosola Racing Ford Raptor in the featured SCORE Trophy Truck division, Vildosola, 59, and Vildosola Jr, 30, covered the rugged and technical 253.0-mile course over much of Mexico’s Baja California Norte in four hours, 13 minutes, 39 seconds at an amazing average speed of 59.85 miles per hour.

JCR-Honda-San-Felipe-SCORE-3-11-13Fueled by Rockstar Energy, Timmy Weigand and Colton Udall strike first in what is shaping up to be a record smashing season of SCORE racing. The duo took command of the race early with Colton Udall on the bike and on the gas passing his way up to 2nd in physical and 1st on adjusted by JCR/Honda Pit 1. Timmy got on the bike and had a collision with a large rock that split the rear rim. Johnny Campbell radioed in an emergency strategy change and JCR/Honda journeyman tech Mitch Hamm was on hand to do an unplanned 1X wheel change. His poise under pressure allowed for a smooth, fast pit and got the bike back underway. Now the racers would have to regroup and push hard to make up time.

SCORE Officials announces today a shakeup in the overall finishers at the 2013 Mastercraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250. After receiving a penalty for veering too far off the course (a 500-foot rule was instituted by SCORE’s Roger Norman), Bryce Menzies moved backed to second place which meant Gustavo Vildosola moved into the first-place spot for the overall victory. Finishing after Menzies in third place was last year’s winner Rob MacCachren, who moved up a spot after Juan Carlos Lopez was assessed a penalty.

In the Pro Motorcycle class, KTM-mounted Kurt Caselli was unofficially named the winner but later penalized for straying too far off course, giving the win to JCR Honda’s Timmy Weigand. Caselli moved back into second place, while Kendall Norman (who solo-ed the race) moved up into the final podium spot.
