Returning after a two-year absence, the popular SEMA SCORE Baja 1000 Experience desert racing exhibit including the Big Oly Bronco, Meyer’s Manx and Ivan Stewart’s Toyota truck will be among the features in the 2021 SEMA Show to be held Nov. 2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The experience is a fitting prelude to November’s Granddaddy of All Desert Races, the BFGoodrich Tires 54th SCORE Baja 1000, presented by 4 Wheel Parts. Different from the first five years (2014-2018) that it was part of the massive automotive industry tradeshow, this year’s SEMA SCORE Baja 1000 Experience will be held indoors in a 50,000-square foot area of the North Hall N4 Pavilion and the displays will feature much wider variety and vintage of vehicles from several classes of trucks, motorcycles, UTVs, Baja Bugs, open wheelers, pre-runners and chase trucks that compete in the world-renown SCORE World Desert Championship.
Also part of this year’s colorful experience will be classic race vehicles and SCORE lifestyle exhibits that will include Overlanding, Chase and state-of-the-art desert racing pre-runners. Another element in the dynamic experience will be the official SCORE Transporter, a stage, racer interviews, and two SCORE vision double-sided LED screens showing highlights of SCORE races, interviews and up close and personal looks of the nearly 60 vehicles expected to be part of the special area of the SEMA Show.
Viewed through the SCORE website (www.score-international.com), SCORE Live will be streaming from the Experience all day Thursday (Nov. 4) with Rat Sult, the voice of SCORE as emcee and assistance from veteran motorsports announcer Dave Arnold.
For those entries in November’s BFGoodrich Tires 54th SCORE Baja 1000, presented by 4 Wheel Parts, that were not finishers or didn’t race in the September’s SCORE Baja 400 a live drawing for the remaining starting positions will be held in the SEMA SCORE Baja 1000 Experience starting at noon on Thursday, Nov. 4.
While nearly 60 vehicles will be on display in the SEMA SCORE Baja 1000 Experience, three featured vehicles will be displayed on their own special stages. The three spotlighted vehicles will be the legendary Big Oly Bronco, Meyers Manx ‘Old Red’, and Ivan ‘Ironman’ Stewart’s legendary multi-championship Toyota truck.
Among the several current racing motorcycles that will be part of The Experience are the Pro Moto Unlimited motorcyles 1x Honda CRF450X (Mark Samuels/Justin Morgan), 5x Honda CRF450X (Derek Ausserbauer/Colton Udall) and the Pro Moto 60 bike 628x Honda CRF450X (Scott McIntosh/Don Whittington).
