Schedule due to impact of the Corona Virus (COVID-19)


ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico – Adjusting to the changing times, SCORE International has announced further revisions of its 2020 racing schedule with new race dates for the first two events.

“As the world continues to move forward in the battle against COVID-19 and following extensive discussions and further analysis with Mexican Federal, State, Municipal authorities along with all of our other significant stakeholders, we have modifieded our 2020 race schedule once again, changing the dates for two of three races in this year’s series—the SCORE Baja 500 and the SCORE San Felipe 250,” stated Jose A. Grijalva, SCORE President/Race Director. “As previously announced, based on the economic impact and in support of our racers, the SCORE Baja 1000 will be a single loop race starting and finishing in Ensenada.”

“The health and safety of our racers, teams, fans and media is of paramount importance to SCORE and we believe these latest modifications will afford us the opportunity to have another memorable SCORE Baja racing season. We urge everybody to follow the established guidelines by health officials so we can all be safe and return to the races.”

The post above Curtis' post has a different date than what is "officially" on SCORE's website, which agrees with Curtis'.

Just trying to prevent anyone from making reservations for the wrong date.

When is BAP 2021? Seems a bit ridiculous to try to cram all the usual races into 2020.
SNORE has canceled the Ridgecrest race that was slated for Oct 2-3 and had originally moved the King shocks BAP to that date, but the BLM wants the date moved to the next weekend . The 2021 Bap will be the 1st week of April next year

Based on the announcement in the BITD town hall meeting today the Silver State 300 has two potential dates of June 11-13th and June 25-27th.

BITD Battle Born 250 is most likely canceled for 2020, the Jagged X National Desert Cup is taking its place on Sept. 24-27th in Laughlin.

Link to the BITD survey for racers to pick June 11-13 or June 25-27 for the Silver State 300.

BITD said volunteers, vendors and media can also do the survey.

Volunteers, put vol in the race # section. Your name in the driver/rider of record section.
Vendors, put ven in the race # section and company name in the driver/rider of record section.
Media, put med in the race # section and company name in the driver/rider of record section.

BOR's May Wendover race is officially cancelled. I just spoke with Allen and it sounds like the state of Nevada wouldn't allow a permit for a large event. Not a total surprise, but we were holding out hope. We'll plan on the Jackpot race as our next event in June.

looking like all the race org's are trying to save races that would have already passed, seems like they should just drop them from the calendar, there are going to be to many races all crammed into a short time, money and resources are going to be tight, people are not going to be able to get to all these races, except maybe the big money teams with sponsorship $$$.

not off-road related, but NHRA just revamped their schedule (again) that has them resuming national events in August. Right now, they are looking at 16 races in 16 weeks. Cutting them from four day events to two each.
