The start of the 49th Annual SCORE BAJA 1000 rips through the streets of Ensenada Mexico, and we have the details on how to keep up with all the action.

The SCORE Baja 1000. Man, I love watching this race. There is just something about putting a mixed field of over 250 trucks, quads, UTV’s, bikes, and even stock VW beetles on the same off-road course and having them battle it out through the unforgiving terrain that is Baja California, Mexico.

The race attracts some of the biggest names in motorsports, all willing to risk the odds for the chance of winning this iconic off-road endurance race. In addition to 33 U.S. states representing this year, it has also attracted racers from 18 different countries including Australia, China, Germany, Mexico, and Thailand.

The race takes place both on and offroad and because the roads aren’t closed for the race, drivers not only have to battle the show-stopping silt beds and ever changing terrain in Mexico, but also the local traffic and wildlife that roam free throughout the course.

This year’s event starts and finishes in Ensenada, Mexico. It will cover a total distance of 854.50 miles. The race includes four mandatory checkpoints and 122 virtual checkpoints that the racers must navigate through to finish the race successfully.

There are reports that the initial course layout may have some issues so this should make for a very exciting race. (Was that a right turn at the farm or a sharp left?) Keep it locked to @ArtofGears for updates throughout the entire race.
