After almost 20 hours of the longest loop race in the history of the SCORE Baja 1000, Luke McMillin and Larry Roeseler are the unofficial overall winners! The #83 Trophy Truck fought a close battle all day with the top drivers in the SCORE Trophy Truck class. The #11 of Rob MacCachren and Josh Daniel ended up in second, followed by the #7 Red Bull truck driven by Bryce Menzies and Andy McMillin who worked their way through the field for a 3rd place finish by the end of the race.
Luke’s brother Dan McMillin #23 was in the top of the field until he had a problem after San Felipe. Ampudia brothers in #10 were in second but ended up having a problem with less than 50 miles to go ending their chance for a back to back win.
The 1X Pro bike of Mark Samuels, Justin Morgan and Justin Jones took the win with a time of 20 hours, 50 minutes and 29 seconds.
For the top buggy classes Jeremy Davis #1085 took the class 10 win and Cody Parkhouse took the class 1 win.
