They are in my office (two of them)! Created by Mike McMahan, editions began with 1967 and ran into the 1990s.

I also have other Score race programs from 1974-1979.

As for the 1973 Baja 1000 (run by the Baja Sports Committee), it was all on the regular roads used from Ensenada to San Felipe to L.A. Bay to El Arco (via the gulf side of the mountains) to San Ignacio to San Juanico to Constitucion to La Paz. I have a poster of the race course (I was in Ensenada) and some check point hand out maps. I will dig up and scan, if interested. This was the race I got close up pics of Parnelli in his Big Oly Bronco and filmed the racers going by, east of Ojos Negros. You guys know that one, right? I was 16 with the Bell & Howell camera:

Discover Baja Travel Club sells the smaller version, online or at their club in San Diego. www.discoverbaja.com . Call to confirm. I might consider selling one of the 5' tall editions I have?

Thank you! I’m going to check it out and get one. Funny the one shown to the right of this one I have too. It’s framed in hing in my home office. I bought it when I could now find this one years ago.
