SCORE International has announced its official four-race schedule for the 2018 SCORE World Desert Championship, featuring all four races in Baja California, Mexico for the fourth time in the storied history of the world’s foremost desert racing series. The schedule is highlighted by the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the SCORE Baja 500.

The 2018 SCORE Baja 500 will be held May 30 to June 3 and will once again start and finish in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. When finalized, it will be run on another grueling Baja race course that will cover approximately 500 miles over the northern part of the mysterious and majestic Baja California peninsula.

This will mark the 44th time the race will start and the 40th time it will finish in Ensenada. The race itself will start on Saturday, June 2 to begin its rugged journey around Baja California Norte.

SCORE International will be saluting 2018 with a four-race series that features classes for Pro and Sportsman cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads.

“SCORE continues to build the operational and marketing assets of the SCORE World Desert Championship and our 2018 schedule will be highlighted by the 50th anniversary of the remarkable SCORE Baja 500,” said Roger Norman, CEO and president of SCORE International. “Mexican races are the cornerstone of SCORE and to have all four races south of the border for the fourth time in history is a distinct honor and a wonderful privilege.
