GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 2, 2023 – BFGoodrich Tires is excited to return to the SCORE International Baja 1000, which takes place Nov. 13-18, 2023. BFGoodrich Tires is hoping for their 34th overall win, following up their 33rd with Luke McMillin and Rob MacCachren taking the victory in 2022.
The Baja 1000 is the world’s most prestigious off-road race, which challenges drivers and vehicles to the limits. This year, for the 50th anniversary of the SCORE International Off-Road Racing Series, the race is unique. For the first time in the race’s history, it begins in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, and finishes in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. The course is more than 1,300 miles long and includes varied terrain.
“The Baja 1000 is the ultimate test of endurance and performance for both tires and drivers,” said Jason Anzalone, North American Motorsports Director. “We are confident that our tires will give our teams the edge they need to win this year.”
BFGoodrich Tires has a long history with the Baja 1000, and the company’s tires have won more races than any other brand. This year, BFGoodrich Tires will support several teams, including Rob MacCachren and Luke McMillin; Cameron Steele and Ryan Arciero; and Toby Price, Larry Roeseler and Paul Weel.
BFGoodrich Racing first competed in the Baja 1000 in 1976 with two entries in the SCORE Baja 1000. After competing for 11 years, BFGoodrich Racing’s first overall SCORE Baja 1000 victory came in 1986 with Mark McMillin on second-generation Radial All-Terrain T/A tires. It was the first of what would become a 20-year streak of overall Baja 1000 wins. The Baja 1000 is the finale of the four-race SCORE World Desert Championship season.
