Why is SCORE trying to squeeze 3 mayor high Endurance races between August and November? what is the point of view with the Race Series Sponsors and the lack of Professionalism to try and postponed the races since March when the situation is not under there control and both Mexican Federal and State Governments call the shots for the race to happen?

At least CODE Off-Road pulled there plug on there race season for 2020 since March, regarding the pandemic. RECORD is trying to squeeze the calendar with the ENS-SF 250 in August and beyond.

Like I said SCORE needs to plan an epic 2021 race season with racecourses that go through each Municipality both in Baja Norte and Sur, make a bold Statement in August and September, usually that's the time they post their race calendar for the next season and start building the hype.

So far with the Team, I've been involved the plug was pull off since March, no racing this 2020.

Almost every athlete and promoter contract is tied to events taking place. We were very fortunate that KOH happened but at this point need to get racing so the drivers can meet their commitments. I have no direct knowledge of SCOREs position but assume it is similar.

IV Press is known for getting very little correct. They’re an absolutely terrible news source.

I went through the checkpoint in Mexicali on Friday without a face mask and wasn't fined.. Also many of the wineries and restaurants in Guadalupe valley are starting to open since last week, I would assume many places in Ensenada will be opening pretty soon as well if they haven't already.

SCORE wants to race just like everyone else. They also have commitments to sponsors and TV as well. Ensenada wants money and we want to race. I know they are trying to schedule around other race series as well.

Considering that they’re trying to secure an August 8th for the 500, I don’t think they give a rats ass about the other promoters lol. Vegas to Reno is the weekend after BTW and our team is contractually obligated to do both.

We have three cars too. Basic 4 corner prep and hopefully no major damage from the 500.Yeehaw!

Evan Weller and his team are amazing though. They’ll make it happen.
my prep in that situation was check oil, park car on a clean floor,check a few days later, ( if you have a couple ) no oil puddles, good 2 go
