Checkout instagram thiers quite a bit of the Bronco in it
I thought the podium interviews and photo ops was pretty lame. That space is reserved for finishers IMO. Sorry and I don’t mean to offend all my friends involved with this project. They should have known better.Racer magazine article. Bronco article is on page 3. Not to flattering
As it has been for decades, the hearty brand of rebel racers that comprised this year’s BFGoodrich SCORE Baja 1000 field is now cleaning dirty equipment and dumping coolers filled with a few waters…racer.com
theres the answer to another thread question about new racers not prepared for real motorsport, Instagram drivers ....That is super LAME!
Unfortunately that is what this sport has slowly turned into. Sponsors care more about likes and followers than actual results. Seems as if the majority of teams are more and more about marketing than actually racing. We have been joking about this term, that has become a perfect way to sum up what has been happening., we went from Baja 1000 to Instagram 1000. Just saying that makes me very sad and feel a little depressed.
By the way this is not the first time I have seem something similar happen at the finish line of a Baja race.
So is Ford actually sponsoring the SCORE series in 2020?I wasn't there, don't know what the scene looked like. I find it hard to believe any of the known racers involved wanted to make it seem like they finished or anything like that. I believe what the Ford people wanted was to have the car on hand as a backdrop for the announcement that Ford is sponsoring the SCORE series next year. Sounds like the execution left something to be desired.
So, who has more details on this Ford sponsor business?? I originally built my Bronco in 2001 because Ford was paying $10k to winners in BITD, even in Stone Stock Full SUV. I never did collect a win before they pulled out, so I switched to Score Class 3. I hope Ford doesn't choose to support (pay) only "new Fords", but it wouldn't surprise me at all... it would be too embarrassing to get beat by a TTB ) Although the reality is... any contingency will likely be in TT and TT Spec. The general public doesn't even see any other classes any more, and lets face it, Scores TV program has sucked arse for a while. "The greatest races nobody ever sees..."Yep they said for 3 years starting in 2020
