DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 23, 2019 – As its new Bronco R race prototype takes to the course at the famed SCORE Baja 1000, Ford has been named Official Truck and SUV of SCORE-International Off-Road Racing.
The relationship makes Ford lead sponsor of 13 races in the SCORE World Desert Challenge Series, which includes the 2019-22 SCORE Baja 1000 races, as well as the 2020-22 SCORE Baja 400, SCORE Baja 500 and San Felipe 250 events.
As part of the agreement, Ford will have a presence at other SCORE-related events such as the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo held annually in Pomona, California.
The Bronco R race prototype – developed by Ford Performance in collaboration with Geiser Performance of Phoenix – was built in part to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bronco claiming the only overall 4×4 win to date at the Baja 1000 in 1969.
The SCORE Baja 1000 will be running from Saturday, Nov. 23 through Monday, Nov. 25.
