SCORE addressed the penalties of the overall first Trophy Truck finisher at the 48th Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 desert race, as Mexico’s Carlos Apdaly Lopez received time penalties from SCORE race officials Saturday morning for two course violations. The penalties cost Lopez the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck race victory.

In off-road racing, nothing is official until it’s official, but it appears as though Rob MacCachren and teammate Andy McMillin defended their 2014 SCORE Baja 1000 victory with a win this morning in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.

That win, however, may not have been exactly how the team drew it up.

Just as they did in 2010, Gustavo Vildosola Jr., Gusavo Vildosola Sr., and the Mexicana Logistics Ford Trophy Truck team have a chance to make SCORE Baja 1000 history.

Back then, the Vildosolas became the first Mexican-based team to win the prestigious SCORE Baja 1000 overall. Now, five years later, they have the chance to become the first Mexican team in history to earn the SCORE Desert World Championship. With a 22-point lead in the Desert World Championship series standings and a second-place start in in the 48th running of the Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 today, the odds are in their favor, although anything can happen. Vildosola Jr. is well aware of that, and just minutes before the start of the race he said that the team’s goal is to play it conservative in the hope locking down the SCORE series title.


Tavo Vildosola was second off the line this morning.

With the motorcycles and ATVs already off the line earlier this morning, it was time for the trucks, buggies and UTVs to take to the 821.38-mile course for this year’s Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000.
