The Silverado incorporates Fox Factory's 3.2 Internal Bypass shock design and Live Valve suspension management system

BF Goodrich 37-inch AT KO2 tires mounted on Method 17x9 wheels and Pre-runner styling make this truck look menacing

A Whipple Supercharged 6.2L V8 provides 700 HP asnd 640 Lbs./Ft. torque

The Fox Factory Edition Chevrolet Silverado is a result of a collaboration between Fox Factory Powered Vehicle Division and offroad industry leaders like FOX, Method Race Wheels, BF Goodrich, Baja Kits, ARB, RCV, and more. The Silverado offers next-level aftermarket suspension technology with OE-level integration all backed by a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty.

Complete with Fox Live Valve shock technology, the Silverado platform uses 3.2 Internal Bypass shock design and Live Valve suspension management system. The Baja Kits long-travel front and rear suspension system increases overall track width by 6" over stock, and when combined with BF Goodrich 37-inch AT KO2 tires mounted on Method 17x9 wheels, it gives the truck 14.5" of suspension travel in front and 19.5" of articulated travel in the rear. 

Power comes from a 6.2L V8 with a Whipple Gen V supercharger that produces 700 hp and 640 lbs.-ft. torque that is coupled to a factory 10L80 10-speed automatic. The truck also uses a Dana 60 semi-floating rear axle equipped with an ARB Air Locker, 35-spline chromoly axle shafts, and a 3.73:1 rear gears. 

Equipped with Nacho Quatro lighting and carbon fiber fenders, hood, and bedsides, the 2024 Fox Factory Edition Silverado looks impressive and ready for anything you can throw at it. More information on the truck can be found at FoxFactorytruck.com.

A NEW COMPLEX SHOWCASES A PASSION FOR COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY

By Dan Sanchez

After starting out in a small garage, Rugged Radios founder and president Greg Cottrell grew his radio and communication equipment business into a giant in the industry. We recently visited the company’s latest complex in Arroyo Grande, California, a small town neighboring Pismo Beach, which showcases the company’s passion for communication technology as well as vintage cars, motorcycles, race vehicles, and more.

“Our home is here in Arroyo Grande,” said Cottrell. “My dad had a motorcycle repair shop in Covina, California, and I began getting involved in it with him when he began racing in SCORE in the 70s.” Cottrell learned early on that communication is critical for safety during racing or other off-road adventures. Cottrell later moved to Arroyo Grande and began working on improving the communication systems that were available at the time, and he soon became a leader in the marketplace.

“I’ve been in the business of communication technology for 32 years and started Rugged Radios over 18 years ago,” said Cottrell. “I started out in my garage, and now we have a state-of-the-art complex designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.” 

The Rugged Radios facility isn’t just a large, bland building in the middle of town. The beautiful exterior and interior are inviting to everyone interested in cars, motorcycles, off-road, Overlanding, and anything else on two or four wheels. “For us, it’s all about energy,” said Cottrell. “When you walk in, you feel the company– who we are– become immersed in the activity here, and you begin to realize you’re in the communications superstore.”

With more than 50 employees, the showroom is open and allows customers to see everything from order-taking, R&D, production, shipping, and more. You will also be surrounded by multiple vintage motorcycles, buggies, race vehicles, and hot-rods, all on display with the company’s products in them. From headsets for helmets to the latest GMRS communication units, samples are available for customers to pick up, feel, and ask questions.

The employees also show pride in working there, and although the main building and showroom are impressive, there’s much more to the Rugged Radios complex. Alongside the main building is the company’s new taco stand, a small building with a full kitchen that is still being prepared to make, sell, and distribute Baja-style tacos. 

“The taco stand is being set up for when we have events such as car shows here at Rugged,” said Steve Gonzalez, Rugged warehouse manager. “We have events here that bring in hundreds of vehicles, and people want to eat, so we took our love of tacos from Baja and brought it to our facility.”

The Rugged complex also houses the company’s “garage,” where new products are prototyped and tested and where team members can work on their vehicles. Everything from welding tools to a CNC laser cutter is in this area to maximize creativity and design. Behind the Garage is another building where all of Cottrell’s personal toys are housed and showcased. Vintage motorcycles, Baja Bugs, Jeeps, a vintage trailer, collectible bicycles, and a replica of his dad’s motorcycle repair shop are all displayed in a tribute to the passions Cottrell shares.

Between the main building and the Garage are numerous Rugged Radio vehicles, including show support and product trailers, along with four-wheel show and pre-runner trucks. 

“This year, we partnered with SCORE International as the Official Radio Communications company,” said Cottrell. “It’s been a dream of mine to become involved with SCORE in an official capacity, as we support SCORE and SCORE supports us. Most importantly, we support the racers at every event and teach them how to install, check, and recheck their equipment before a race. This partnership with SCORE is only the beginning, and I can’t wait for the many more years to come.”

First SCORE Baja 500

To everything there is a beginning and the launch of SCORE International’s remarkable history in Mexico came on July 26, 1974 when what has become the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization was asked to take over and officially produced its first SCORE Baja race – the SCORE Baja Internacional in Ensenada, Baja California.

First SCORE Baja 500

by Dominic Clark, SCORE Historian

ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico – To everything there is a beginning and the launch of SCORE International’s remarkable history in Mexico came on July 26, 1974 when what has become the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization was asked to take over and officially produced its first SCORE Baja race – the SCORE Baja Internacional in Ensenada, Baja California.

     As SCORE has started its sixth decade this year, the Baja 500 was actually started in 1969 by the NORRA organization but because of legal challenges regarding the use of the name after NORRA was removed as the official U.S. desert racing promoter in Mexico by the government at the end of 1972, SCORE had to use the name SCORE Baja Internacional for over a decade.

FAST FORWARD

     Eventually then-SCORE owner Sal Fish was able to negotiate the use of the original name of the race and it became duly registered as the SCORE Baja 500. In 1973, the Baja 500 was organized and produced by a local tourism group called the Baja Sports Committee.

     The BFGoodrich Tires 56th SCORE Baja 500, Round 2 of the four-race 2024 SCORE World Desert Championship, will be held May 29-June 2 in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.

REMEMBER: JULY 26, 1974

     With tremendous assistance from Nico Saad, long-time Ensenada tourism advocate and owner of the legendary San Nicolas Hotel & Casino in Ensenada, Mickey Thompson and his fledgling SCORE International organization were invited by the Mexican government to take over the Baja 500 starting in 1974 and become the exclusive U.S. promoter for Baja California.

     Thus came the birth of the SCORE Baja Internacional (legal issues precluded SCORE from gaining the rights to use the name Baja 500 until 1991). The first SCORE Baja Internacional (produced by Mickey Thompson and Sal Fish) was held on July 26, 1974 in Ensenada with 279 official starters and 173 official finishers.   But fans, media and racers alike have always called it the Baja 500.

     Noted Hollywood stunt driver and Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame inductee Bobby Ferro won the overall 4-wheel vehicle title for the third of four times in his career in 1974, this time in a VW-Sandmaster open-wheel desert race car. The fastest overall motorcycle in this 1974 race was the Husqvarna with Mitch Mayes and A.C. Bakken sharing the riding duties.

START/FINISH LOCATIONS

     Ensenada has hosted the SCORE Baja 500 the most of any location. It has started 49 times there and finished 45 times there.

     Only six times has the race not been held in Ensenada at all. Because of continuing friction between the government and land owners, Sal Fish moved the 1984 to the desert near Barstow, Calif., USA and again in 1989 for the same reason Fish moved the race to San Felipe. The health pandemic forced it to be moved again to San Felipe in 2020.

     Because of the growth of the population in Ensenada, Fish started and finished the race in Ojos Negros in both 1991 and 1992.

     Again because the city couldn’t identify an appropriate route back into Ensenada, the race started in Ensenada and finished in Santo Tomas four times (1988, 1990, 1994 and 1995). In 1993, SCORE was forced to start the race in Ojos Negros and finish in Santo Tomas.

     Because of the world-wide health pandemic, it started and finished on the outskirts of Ensenada in 2020 and started and finished in San Felipe in 2021.

     From 1996 through 2019, the SCORE Baja 500 started and finished in the heart of Ensenada. The race started and finished for nearly two decades in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center and left town and returned to the city by running up and the Ensenada Arroyo (wash) for nearly two miles each way in front of upwards of 50,000 spectators to the outskirts of town and on to the Ojos Negros area.

     First because of elections (2019) and twice because of the worldwide pandemic (2020, 2021), the race festivities returned in 2022 to the area in and around the iconic Riviera del Pacifico CC.

     The most starters and finishers in the history of this great race happened in 2007 when 492 total vehicles officially started the race and 283 of them were official finishers.

Racing all four times in Baja California, Mexico, for the ninth consecutive year, the 2024 SCORE World Desert Championship started in the best way for Thor Herbst, who is the SCORE Overall point leader with 134 points, after winning the massive Trophy Truck Spec class at last month’s King Shocks 37th SCORE San Felipe 250 to enhance the amazing legacy of Las Vegas’ Terrible Herbst Motorsports.

ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico—Racing all four times in Baja California, Mexico, for the ninth consecutive year, the 2024 SCORE World Desert Championship started in the best way for Thor Herbst, who is the SCORE Overall point leader with 134 points, after winning the massive Trophy Truck Spec class at last month’s King Shocks 37th SCORE San Felipe 250 to enhance the amazing legacy of Las Vegas’ Terrible Herbst Motorsports.

     Thor Herbst, 24, is also the leader of the Trophy Truck Spec class, which had a class-record 44 starters in San Felipe. He drove his revamped 1 Nine Industries-Chevy, (formerly known in desert racing as Herbst/Smith Fab), six points ahead of California's Justin Davis, who finished second in the Trophy Truck Spec class in a TSCO-Chevy.

     Mexico’s Santiago Creel is the highest Mexican driver in the SCORE overall points Honda Motorcycles after the first round of the year, by earning 124 points with a podium third-place in the Trophy-Truck Spec class in San Felipe. Creel is a former international motorcycle rally racer from Mexico City.

AMPUDIA, THE MASTER IN "THE MONSTERS"

     Alan Ampudia, 33, from Ensenada, Baja California of Team Papas and Beer, leads the points standings in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division after winning his class in San Felipe, driving his All-Wheel Drive No. 10 Monster Energy Ford Raptor, built by Mason Motorsports.

     Ampudia, reached 120 points in another historic moment for Mexican Off-Road, since only himself, Gustavo Vildósola Sr, and Gustavo Vildósola Jr, have been able to win the overall of a SCORE San Felipe 250, so he will finally try to reach this year the legendary number 1 in "The Desert Monsters", but for that, he still has three more races left, including the upcoming BFGoodrich Tires 56th SCORE Baja 500 from May 29-June 2 in Ensenada.

     Second place in SCORE Trophy Truck points and tied for 11th overall is San Diego’s Luke McMillin, 31, who has 114 points aboard the No. 83 Chevy 1500 Mason Truck, a company that has been dominating the sport in the deserts of Baja California and Baja California Sur for several years.

     "Tavo" Vildósola Jr, 42 of Mexicali, Mexico, started the SCORE season with a good pace, as he was third in SCORE Trophy Truck in the Score San Felipe 250, occupying that place in the SCORE Trophy Trucks with 110 points.

SALAS, THE NEW AZTEC STAR

     The rider from Tecate, Baja California, Arturo Salas Jr, 21, occupies the position of honor in the Pro Moto Unlimited class, after winning his class in the King Shocks 37th SCORE San Felipe 250 along with Californian Carter Klein, 19, of Agua Dulce, Calif., a result that has them at the top of the motorcycles with 103 points as part of the Hero Racing team.

     Salas Jr, who resides in Chula Vista, California, but represents his native Mexico in desert racing, recovered from an injury on the course last November’s BFGoodrich Tires 56th SCORE Baja 1000 to reaffirm that he is the new figure of motorcycle desert racing in Mexico, now as part of the Honda brand, after last year in which he raced with KTM and Gas Gas motorcycles in SCORE.

     American racers Austin Eddy, Connor Eddy, and Jarett Megla are second in the Pro Moto Unlimited, with 97 points, aboard another Honda CRF450X motorcycle, while Fernando Beltran from Ensenada, Baja California, is third in the same motorcycle category with 93 points, along with his teammates, Mauri Herrera, Luis Flores, Chad Goodsell and Dilan Avalos.

BLURTON AND HIS WINNING MAGIC

     Phil Blurton, 37 of Auburn, California, is not only the leading driver in the Pro UTV Fi class with 114 points, but also driving his No. 2944 Can-Am Maverick R is the SCORE overall UTV point leader after, winning in a thrilling duel against Edgar Garcia of the Santo Tomas Racing team in the SCORE San Felipe 250.

    Blurton, a multi-time UTV World Champion, continues to write his history with golden letters in the deserts of Baja California and Baja California Sur, where he has become the king of these UTV vehicles that are the sensation of the market today.

POLARIS AND A STELLAR DOMINANCE

     In the Pro UTV Open class, the youngster from Las Vegas, Nevada, Cayden MacCachren, is the leader after the first race of the year with 112 points, six more than his teammate of the SCI Motorsports Polaris factory team, Brock Heger, who reached 106 points after his second place in the San Felipe.

     Cayden MacCachren, heir to Rob MacCachren, is slowly writing his name in the sport, as he has two consecutive SCORE wins, including his success in the BFGoodrich Tires 56th SCORE Baja 1000, which started last November in the port of La Paz, Baja California Sur and ended at Ensenada, Baja California.
