Online registration has officially opened for the upcoming internationally-televised 51st SCORE Baja 500.

Round two of the four-race 2019 SCORE World Desert Championship will be held May 29-June 2 in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. The race will be televised on a delayed basis as a one-hour special on the ABC Network World of X Games programming.

Online registration is set up by class for Pro and Sportsman cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads. Information on all SCORE races can be found on the home page under the Race Info tab.

Official entries received after the drawing will be given the next available starting position within their respective classes. Online entries will be accepted until 8 p.m. (PDT) on Tuesday, May 21.

Following consultation with city and state government officials, SCORE International announced that it will move all the official pre-race festivities and the start/finish line area for this year’s SCORE Baja 500 to the Lucas Oil Off-Road Stadium on the grounds of the Estero Beach Hotel & Resort, 12.2 miles south of downtown Ensenada.

SCORE officials stated that the move is being made because of Baja California State elections that will be held on the same weekend as the race and moving the event for this year will reduce the serious strain on public resources and eliminate all of the road closures.   

SCORE has also announced that there will be no admission charge for spectators to view the start and finish of the race from several thousand grandstand seats at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Stadium at Estero Beach.

“Starting inside of the stadium, we will have the class winners from the recent SCORE San Felipe 250 start first by themselves and then the rest of the vehicles will leave the start line two vehicles at a time and cover the nearly one-mile off-road track both leaving the start line and then returning to the finish. This will be awesome for the fans to see this much racing at the start and finish,” SCORE President/Race Director Jose A. Grijalva said.
