    SCORE 2013 3 Race Baja Series (San Felipe 250, Baja 500, Baja 1000)

    Class 5-1600 & Limited VW Classes (Class 1/2-1600, Class 11, Class 9)
    The Heart of the Baja.

    We're thinking.... there should be more Limited VW entries next year.
    Since there will now be 3 Races (3 of the Best Races out there - Baja Races)
    No Laughlin & No Primm.
    We think there will be more teams running the Points Series for that reason (Costs less $$$ for the Season, Can run Points series for Less $$$, therefore more Cars !!)

    Should be Good.
    Let's get these classes back to 15-20+ Entries

    We'll be at the San Felipe 250 & Baja 500. If all goes well in both of those, we'll be at the 1000 as well.
    Who else is going ?? or thinking of going ???

    Copy & Paste your name on a new post if you're going or planning on going.
    We'll start it.

    It would be nice to see 20-25 bajas again in a score race. Like back around 2005-2006. The entries should get better now with only 3 baja races.
    I saw that the gaspers came back to 5-16 to race the 1000. Are there any other old 5-16 guys coming back out?
    Anyone that currently races other series going to score? Any new guys with new cars? Any old guys with new cars? Any old guys with old cars?

    After prep following the SNORE race, my baja is heading to race in baja sur races for the year.... Well that is the thought for now. Easy to change it up and have some SCORE fun, the money expense is so huge for the little race 250 though!

    I am about as old when it comes to 5/1600 as they come, thinking about the Baja 500 but then again if its thousands of dollars just to enter maybe not. Why 25 like 2005-2006, why not 60+ like 1978-79??? I refuse to race for just a trophy and if Score had any sence they would lower the whole entry fee for the Vw classes to atract the Ensenada racers

    Iribe is finishing a new Class 10 car, But he could come out with someone else.
    Ledezma could go. They've been racing lately. We'll ask them...... (San Diego/Chula Vista guys)

    What do you think Sal ?? The Ensenada, Tijuana, Mexicali, Rosarito, La Paz, & U.S. racers would come out.

    I enjoyed racing the 1000 this year in my FireGuys Racing Class 11 and would love to do Baja 3 times next year, BUT there's no way I can dish out the $$ it takes to do that.

    Dave, the only thing that makes "sense" to SCORE is $$$$$$.
    If you are serious about the 500, let me know.

    That's the entry fee for the SF 250?

    Last year's entry fees were:

    SF 250 - $1520
    Baja 500 - $1620
    Baja 1000 - $3520

    Surprised to see a small change in entry fees, thought it would be bigger...... Not complaining about it, just doubting it'll be enough to make a difference.

    Thanks to Baja Pits for the free service!

    No thanks, that is no savings, Roger should hang is head in shame on that one. I could run dang near a hole code series or Snore or More or Record for that 1 races entry fee. Some one tell me what in the F you are getting for that unreasonable amount to enter that race except a small ENTRY TO RUN AGAINST. Do you really think a 200 dollar reduction is going to open the flood gates on 5/1600 entries????fOOLISH, Good luck.
