This year’s Baja 1000 race was unlike many of the races before it. What was unique? Well, having to plan and organize a race in a country outside the United States during a pandemic for one!

 

This years race, being an even year (2020), is known as a “Loop Race”, rather than a “Peninsula Run” which takes place in odd years. This race was also 898.40-miles making it the longest loop race in Baja 1000 history! The final entry list for the race had 187 vehicles from 26 states and 14 countries, all taking the green flag at an Ensenada starting line with no spectators due to COVID-19 safety concerns. The pandemic forced a condensed race season in Baja with this race representing only the second SCORE International event in 2020.

After almost 20 hours of the longest loop race in the history of the SCORE Baja 1000, Luke McMillin and Larry Roeseler are the unofficial overall winners! The #83 Trophy Truck fought a close battle all day with the top drivers in the SCORE Trophy Truck class. The #11 of Rob MacCachren and Josh Daniel ended up in second, followed by the #7 Red Bull truck driven by Bryce Menzies and Andy McMillin who worked their way through the field for a 3rd place finish by the end of the race.
