SCORE will be celebrating its 50th anniversary of the iconic SCORE Baja 1000 in 2017.
The big news for next year’s monumental Baja 1000 is that it will be a “peninsula run” or point-to-point race, starting in Ensenada, Baja California and finish in La Paz, Baja California Sur. The 50th running of the Baja 1000 will run roughly 1,300 miles in total. SCORE says this is the 43rd time the race will start in Ensenada and 22nd time it will finish in La Paz. The race will start on Thursday, Nov. 16 to begin its rugged journey to the southern part of Baja.
“SCORE has been building the operational and marketing assets for the past few years preparing for this historic 2017 global event and season,” said Roger Norman, CEO and President of SCORE International. “Mexican races are the cornerstone of SCORE and to have all four races South of the border is an distinct honor and a wonderful privilege. We welcome the challenge to add to the illustrious SCORE Baja racing legacy.”
The complete 2017 schedule includes four races in total, including the San Felipe 250, Baja 500, Rosarito Beach SCORE Desert Challenge, and the Baja 1000. Round 4 is the the50th SCORE Baja 1000, Nov. 14-18 Ensenada to La Paz. SCORE also said it is finalizing plans for the SCORE World Desert Championship series to air on the CBS Sports Network and internationally through syndication.
“With the diligence and creativity of award-winning BCII TV, SCORE has had a continuing viable domestic television package with the CBS Sports Network as our partner as well as with our expanding international syndication platform,” commented Jim Ryan, SCORE Sales and Marketing Director. “The introduction of the highly successful live-feed programming and SCORE app, social media growth and the SCORE Journal and website’s unprecedented viewer/reader growth has continued to expand the exposure for SCORE races, racers, sponsors to our global fan base.”
Director Dana Brown has also been working on new film Dust 2 Glory as well, a follow-up to the original 2005 Dust to Glory film. The film was shot during the 2015 Baja 1000 and has followed the 2016 season, with the release scheduled for 2017 in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the SCORE Baja 1000.For more information: Christine Wait & Lawton Shank – Race Info/Points/Vehicle & Moto Number Assignments – 1 (702) 407-3059 email@example.com
