SCORE International has announced that the starting positions for the 42nd running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 will be at MasterCraft Safety's new corporate headquarters in Santee, California and will be held on April 24th.
A full day of festivities will include vendor booths from Santee's famous desert racing neighbors, as well as Off-Road Warehouse, Walker Evans Wheels and various other off-road related companies. Facility tours and vendor displays will begin at 10am and starting positions will be drawn from a hat beginning at 1pm. A raffle with thousands of dollars worth of prizes will also be held to raise money funds for Fundacion Castro-Limon, an organization that provides cancer treatments for children in Baja who would not normally have access to therapy.
"We haven't had an open house since we moved to our new facility earlier this month," explained MasterCraft Safety CEO, Robbie Pierce. "MasterCraft Safety has a strong relationship with SCORE International and we were honored when Sal Fish asked us to host the drawing for the Baja 500 running order."
"Starting position, along with vehicle preparation and pre-running, plays an incredibly important role in the overall scheme of the race," noted SCORE International President, Sal Fish.
The race is scheduled for June 4th - 6th in Ensenada, B.C., Mexico. The 42nd annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 is the third race in SCORE International's 2010 series, which will culminate with the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 in November.
