Baja 500: Video from Arciero Miller testing section.


Not only is the entry list that is rapidly approaching 525 vehicles the largest in the long and storied three-decade-plus history of SCORE International, this weekend’s 39th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race is also filled with the most former class winners ever in a SCORE race with 102 competitors who have combined for 273 class wins. Included in that illustrious group of former class winners are nine SCORE desert racing daredevils who have combined for 15 Overall 4-wheel vehicle titles and seven riders who have combined for 21 Overall motorcycle crowns in the world’s second oldest desert race.

The pacemakers in the huge field are Rod Hall and Larry Roeseler, who each have 16 career class wins in this race - the most among active racers, second only to the race record of 17.

For the first time in race history, Volkswagen of America officially entered two of its Dakar Rally factory teams. Driven by American Mark Miller and South African Giniel de Villers, the two turbo-diesel VW Race Touareg SUVs will compete in a special SCORE Int’l Truck class. They will start between SCORE Trophy-Truck and Class 1.

Miller, who has won the SCORE Trophy-Truck class twice in the SCORE Baja 500 (in 2002 with Larry Ragland and in 2003 with Ryan Arciero) was fourth overall in this year’s Dakar Rally while de Villers won four stages in the rally and finished 11th overall.
