The 44th SCORE Baja 1000 race is in the books and once again BFGoodrich Tires -- the official tire of the racing series -- walks away with a resounding victory across-the-board.
Most notable was its 25th overall title. Team BFGoodrich, which includes Andy McMillin and father Scott McMillin, completed the race in just 14 hours and 51 minutes with an average of 47.12 MPH. Their race vehicle was fitted with BFGoodrich Baja T/A KR Tires.
"We couldn't have asked for a better finish to the 2011 SCORE Baja 1000 or a better weekend overall," said Silvia Mammone, motorsports marketing manager, BFGoodrich Tires.
In addition to the McMillin's victory, Bryce Menzies grabbed the Trophy Truck championship title, while Nick Vanderwey came in second. "That was the most intense race I've ever been a part of," said Team BFGoodrich member Andy McMillin."I was 30 seconds to them, and Bryce was 30 seconds to me on the beach. It was a freight-train free-for-all. It was such a blast. It was so much fun. I'm glad to win my second Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 with my dad. It means a lot."
Finally, BFGoodrich Tires-equipped race vehicles won 14 SCORE Baja 1000 Classes as well as eight of the 10 overall spots. Another notable victory was provided by Jessica McMillin, who won in the Pro Truck class.
The 692.82-mile race started in Ensenada, Mexico, circled through Baja California, and finished back in Ensenada. This year's race included 278 entries from 34 States and 16 countries.
