Scot Harden Named Grand Marshall of 55th Score Baja 1000

Harden's career has included off-road motorcycle racing, team managing and more.

It was announced at the BFGoodrich Tires 55th SCORE Baja 1000 Presented by 4 Wheel Parts pre-race press conference held at the Off-Road Expo that Scot Harden will serve as grand marshall for the 2022 Baja 1000.

According to Ryan, “Scot has had an amazing career as an off-road motorcycle racer, team manager, business leader and advocate for the sport. With multiple overall wins at the Baja 1000 and Baja 500, along with other SCORE championships to his credit and countless wins at major off-road races in the U.S. and internationally, Scot embodies the spirit and passion of off-road racing.

The tradition, heritage and spirit of adventure it embodies is something that I am very proud to be associated with. I want to thank SCORE not only for the honor but for recognizing the contribution that motorcycles have made to the history of the event. It’s further acknowledgement by SCORE that motorcycle racers are a big part of their legacy and an important part of their community.”
