Reigning SCORE Baja 1000 Overall Champions
Mark POST & Rob MACCACHREN
Aspire To Earn Their Second Baja 1000 Victory

Riviera Racing Dissects
SCORE Baja 1000 course over past 17-days

Facing their biggest racing challenge of the 2009 desert racing season, 2007 SCORE Baja 1000 Overall & Trophy Truck Champions, Mark Post and Rob MacCachren, will arrive to Ensenada, Baja California with everything in order to repeat their 2007 winning performance.

The 41st Annual SCORE Baja 1000 race is the oldest and most well known of all desert races held in the world. The first race kicked off in 1967 and has been a draw to off road racers and adventurers ever since. The mystical 1100-mile finger of land that juts south of the Southern California Mecca is a rugged off road paradise. Remote and rugged deserts, high mountains and white sand beaches border the Baja Peninsula on both sides as the Pacific Ocean borders the west and the magical Sea of Cortez lines the peninsula on the east side.

This year's odyssey will test man and machine over 631.35 torturous miles with the start and finish held on Boulevard Costero along the beautiful Bahia de Todos Santos in front of the historical Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center on Ensenada's Malecon.

Mark Post began his off road journey over 20 years ago. Post explained, "Racing in Baja has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my off road racing career. Winning the overall race at the 40th SCORE Baja 1000 was definitely the biggest victory as of yet. This year we've had some great performances by our team and we'll be charging for this season's Baja 1000 victory along with several other top teams."

Riviera Racing began preparation for this year's race in late October when Mark Post & Rob MacCachren led sponsors down a 700-mile off road adventure ending at the beautiful Cabo Azul Resort in Cabo San Lucas.

"It was encouraging to spend a week running last year's Baja 1000 course before we ever started prerunning for this year's Baja 1000. When we arrived back from the sponsor run, we immediately started prerunning and haven't looked back since. The pre-run schedule has been hectic as the team has dissected the entire race course section-by-section," commented Mark Post.

Over 250,000 people are anticipated to be spread out along the race course with nearly 50,000 fans expected to pack into contingency and technical inspection. Fans will line the course beginning in the Ensenada wash where spectators begin to line up on the race course the night before the race. The race course travels through the Pine Forest up over the infamous La Rumorosa grade to near Tecate and Mexicali, down Laguna Salada to San Felipe and back to the Pacific Coast and up through Santo Tomas and back to Ojos Negros on the way back to Ensenada, covering much of the northern half of the majestic Baja California peninsula.

Las Vegas native, Rob MacCachren, has raced in the SCORE Baja 1000 each year over the last two decades and he commented," This race is certainly the biggest race of the season. I never get tired of racing in Baja and our team has really worked hard towards prepping the championship truck and preparing for this year's race. After a couple weeks of prerunning the race course in its entirety, it is certainly going to be a challenging race. We have a great strategy and we just need to go out and have a clean race."

The No.1 Rockstar/Makita/Monarch Grand Vacations Trophy Truck will begin the journey at approximately 10:30 a.m. as vehicles leave in 30-second intervals. Over 30 SCORE Trophy Trucks have entered the race and a total of 359 entries have been officially entered in this edition of the 2008 SCORE Baja 1000.

Riviera Racing thanks all of their sponsors, including Monarch Grand Vacations, Rockstar Energy Drink, Makita Industrial Power Tools, Pacific Monarch Resorts, BFGoodrich Tires, PIAA Lights, Ultra Wheels, Javier's Cantina & Grill, Anaheim Hills Auto Body, Patton Racing Engines, DirtBagz, K&N Air Filters, Borla Exahust, Ron Davis Radiator, Sinister Films and Sunset Signs
