Matlock Racing

The #1A Matlock Racing Pro ATV Team of Matlock, Miller & Caster
prepare to take on the 2010 Tecate SCORE Baja 500 on
June 5th in Ensenada, Baja, Mexico

After many months of preparation the Matlock Racing team will head south of the border once again to defend their overall title at the 42nd annual running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the second oldest desert race in the world. The team recently took the Overall win in the rst race of the SCORE series at the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250. This year’s team will consist of Wayne Matlock, Josh Caster and Wes Miller aboard the #1A Matlock Racing TRX700XX.

The team will once again use a Honda TRX700XX as the quad of choice in the harsh terrain of the Baja peninsula.

The race quad has been prepped by Wayne Matlock and Rich Morel to provide another race winning performance.

The team will head south of the border more than a week before the race to begin prerunning each section of the course multiple times before race day. Each member of the team carefully studies their sections religiously until they know every inch of the course.

It is this dedication that keeps them at the front of the pack.

With nearly 300 entries at this year’s race the competition should be fierce. The race course’s 439 miles will cover some of the roughest terrain the Baja peninsula has to offer. Starting in Ensenada, the course makes its way east into the mountains thru the town of Ojos Negros, then into the famous silt of Tres Hermanos before reaching the summit. Once reaching the summit the course drops dramatically to the dry lake bed of Laguna Salada before heading south towards the rocky whoops of Borrego. Before leaving the desert of Borrego the course turns west and climbs its way back into the mountains to the Famous Mike’s Sky Rancho. Thru the water crossings the course heads north to Valle De Trinidad before heading west once again to the Pacific coast. Once to the Pacific coast the course works its way north following the steep climbs and gullies along the ocean waves before turning east towards the town of Santo Tomas. Passing thru Santo Tomas the course continues east back to hills of Ojos Negros before its final stretch back into Ensenada. This course will test the racers as they work to lead the pack and cross the finish line first in Ensenada.

The #1A Matlock Racing quad will start second off the line in the PRO ATV class and each rider will be working hard to gain time on the competition from the drop of the green flag all the way to the crossing of the finish line and the checkered flag.
