Known for being one of the easiest days of the Dakar Rally, Stage 14 is all about making sure each competitor finishes and that the fans of Chile get a chance to see their hero’s in action. Stage 14 came complete with a 346km special and a 121km Liaison section accompanied with a shortcourse style atmosphere for a small section of today’s special.
As expected, race leader Stephane Peterhansel wouldn’t push himself or his equipment in Stage 14 with a risk of loosing his over-all lead securing his 11th Dakar Rally victory. Peterhansel would finish today’s stage in 10th position, just 3 minutes behind stage winner and fellow teammate Nani Roma. Orlando Terranova would finish a slim 13 seconds behind Nani Roma and successfully hold off Lucio Alvarez who finished 20 seconds behind Roma. American Robby Gordon used this Stage to display his showmanship to the fans of Chile and wow the crowds with the impressive sights and sounds of the American built V8 Hummer, Gordon would go on to finish the stage in the 6th position.
Similar to the car outcome; bike favorite Cyril Despres would spend his time wisely and cruise to the finish line in the 14th position and secure his 5th Dakar Rally victory in the bike category. Today’s stage victory would go to KTM rider Ruben Faria, while Joan Barreda and Helder Rodriguez. American Johnny Campbell would finish today’s stage in the 18th position while fellow countrymen Kurt Caselli would finish 52nd in today’s stage. Although not within the top ten (where they would like to be) just to be able to finish the Dakar Rally is a huge accomplishment within itself.
The 2013 Dakar Rally has had it’s ups and downs for many competitors, for those who completed the Dakar should consider it a victory and for those who even made it to the starting line should consider themselves very blessed.
Stay tuned right here on Race-Dezert.com for a full Dakar recap including; representatives from the United States, success/defeat stories, unsung hero’s and much more. [More]
On the eve of the final stage of one of the greatest races in the world, the quest for glory has tightened up in both the motorcycle and car categories. While Stéphane Peterhansel has built a comfortable 45 minute lead and looks to sail to a record 11th Dakar win in the cars category, Francisco “Chaleco” Lopez has now moved into 2nd place closed in on leader Cyril Despres. Once in Santiago, drivers will have a course a few kilometres long, where they will be able to delight spectators by performing skids and jumps. Until then, the balance between the thrills of riding must be weighed with their sense of accomplishment in order to make it to the finish line. [More]
Stage 11 of the 2013 Dakar Rally started in La Rioja, Argentina and ended in Fiambala, Argentina. But later in the day when the cars started the runoff from the storm in the mountains caused a tremendous amount of flooding making it nearly impossible for the cars to cross raging rivers. The Dakar organizers decided to stop the stage 53km in, and so far it looks as if the times for CP1 might be used for the finish.
Screen shot of todays broadcast showing the flooding that ended the stage early.
Robby Gordon started fifth for the day but quickly made up time as he crossed WP2 in second then took over the lead by WP3. With the stage ending early 53km into the special due to the impassible rivers, Robby got the win for todays stage. [More]
During Stage 10 of the 2013 Dakar Rally, competitors experienced a typical course for the Argentinean rally stage with a mix of winding and fast roads, forests and open plateaus. After 37 km on the road the cars had a 353km (219 miles) special and the bikes a slightly different route at 357km (222 miles).
Nani Roma started first on stage 10 of the Dakar Rally
In the car category Nani Roma started todays stage with his team-mate Stéphane Peterhansel just behind. Peterhansel quickly took charge 64km into the special 12 seconds ahead of Terranova and 24 seconds ahead of Roma but that didn’t last long with Terranova commanding the lead just 36km later. [More]
KURT CASELLI’S FIRST STAGE WIN IS BOTH SYMBOLIC AND PIVOTAL IN AMERICA’S ULTIMATE QUEST
3 months ago If you asked champion motorcycle racer Kurt Caselli if he would win a stage in the 2013 DAKAR RALLY, he would’ve probably laughed and said no way. But when a last minute offer to replace KTM’s Mark Coma came with a golden key to the world of DAKAR, he jumped in cold and, only weeks later, he’s done what a few experts predicted he would do: win his first DAKAR stage. [More]
It was COLD COLD COLD but racing at the HDRA Vegas 250 was as hot as it gets!
The temperature was hovering around 15 degrees on Saturday morning when nearly 100 racers staged for the start of the Vegas 250. “We are excited to get this first race of the year underway,” said Roger Norman. “It’s going to be a great year for off-road racing.”

Cameron Steele on his way to 1st Overall and the Trophy Truck win at the HDRA Vegas 250
Cameron Steele battled with BJ Baldwin until the last lap when BJ had a mechanical problem. “We had a really good day,” said Steele at the finish. “We started off with a big run to the front, and then BJ stepped up and made a race out of it. I think he had problem there at the end, but we’re really stoked to be up here on the top spot and start the season with a win, we want to be the first to claim the World Championship and this is the best way to do it.” [More]

Final Fish Salute On Jan. 12 During 2012 SCORE Awards Night at Hyatt Regency in SoCal
LOS ANGELES—After nearly four decades of leadership in the sport he loves so much and nurtured as a parent would a child, iconic race producer Sal Fish announces today that he has sold his SCORE International desert racing organization and the SCORE Desert Racing Series to Roger Norman effective immediately. Fish, the CEO/President of Los Angeles-based SCORE International has set the pace for the sport of desert racing since shortly after it’s forming by the late Mickey Thompson in 1973.
What does this have to do with this years Baja 1000 (2012) controversy?
Reposted from Ballistic BJ Baldwin's Facebook/Instagram pages:
Considering we lost most of 3rd gear at race mile 90, I'd say this would be the only time I'm happy losing by 11 seconds. Sorry everyone, we did the best we could with the cards that we were dealt. I hope everyone enjoyed the show. We'll do better next time. I promise.

LOS ANGELES—With the release of the official course map, GPS files and course notes this week, pre-race activity increases significantly starting Friday when the world’s best desert racers officially begin their pre-running and course logistics activities for next month’s 44th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the second-oldest desert race in the world.
Round 4 of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series, the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, will feature over 275 entries, competing in 28 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs The popular event will be held May 31-June 3 in Ensenada, Mexico.
SCORE is in its 39th year as the world’s foremost desert racing organization. This race is traditionally one of the most popular events on the SCORE schedule, and most of the world’s best desert racers are expected to be in action at this year’s 44th anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the original desert race produced by SCORE on July 26, 1974.
With late entries accepted up to race morning in the 450-mile race, entries so far have come from 32 U.S. States from Hawaii to New York and the U.S. Territory of Guam along with the additional countries of Mexico, Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Finland, Germany, Guatemala, Ireland, Italy and Japan.
The green flag will drop for the race at 6 a.m. on Saturday (June 2) for the motorcycle and ATV classes in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, followed by the car and truck classes three hours after the last ATV at approximately 10 a.m. The elapsed-time race, with a 22-hour time limit for all competitors, will start and finish in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center on Boulevard Costero in the heart of Ensenada, leaving and returning into the city through the Arroyo Wash.
The talented field of veteran desert racers heading to Baja includes 22 defending class winners out of the 30 Pro and Sportsman classes that had finishers in last year’s race. Several, however, will be racing in different classes this year.
Last year’s overall race champions are among the early entries in this year’s race. The overall 4-wheel winner in 2011 was Las Vegas’ Bryce Menzies, who drives the No. 1 Red Bull Menzies Motorsports Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy Truck. Recording the fastest overall time while leading all motorcycles in last year’s race was Kendall Norman, Santa Barbara, Calif. and Quinn Cody, Buellton, Calif., on a Honda CRF450X while the fastest ATV was the Honda TRX450R team led by Brandon Brown, Umatilla, Ore. Norman will be riding solo this year on another Honda CRF450X while Cody will be the second rider for Mike Brown on a KTM 450SX-F. Menzies was also last year's SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck season point champion as well as being selected as the 2011 SCORE Rookie of the Year.
The rugged 450-mile course, which runs in a clockwise direction, resembles a deflating balloon, winding east to Ojos Negros, down to near San Felipe, back West to the Pacific Ocean below San Vicente and back north east through Santo Tomas on the way back to Ojos Negros and then Ensenada.
The only pre-running that will be allowed on the first 41.04 miles of the course will be outbound only and only on Thursday and Friday, May 31 and June 1. No inbound pre-running on the last 41.04 miles of the course will be allowed. Pre-running of the rest of the course will start and finish in the Ojos Negros area.
The four official race checkpoints, where all vehicles are required to make a quick stop, will be located at race mile 88.56 (Santa Catarina), rm219.72 (lower Matias wash), rm314.13 (Northwest of Colonet near the Pacific Ocean) and rm402.90 (West of Ojos Negros). The course will also have 52 virtual checkpoints. All vehicles are also required to run International Rally Consultants tracking devices and live vehicle tracking will be available during the race at - www.racetheworld.net.
The course will also have five short, controlled-speed pavement sections that total 13.67 miles where the speed limit for the race vehicles is 60 miles per hour, subject to time penalties for exceeding that speed in those very limited pavement sections.
The featured SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850-horsepower, unlimited production trucks has a race-high 39 entries in this year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500.
Besides the three overall winners, among the other defending Pro class champions in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 entered this year to date are: Luke McMillin, El Cajon, Calif. (Class 1/2-1600), Donald Moss, Sacramento, Calif. (Class 3); Rudolfo Iribe, Tijuana, Mexico/Justin Matney, Bristol, Tenn.

(Class 40), Wayne Matlock, El Cajon, Calif. (Class 25) and Carl Vella, Ardsley, N.Y. (Class 26).
From the group above, Luke McMillin is racing in Class 1 this year as is Matney (with Stacy) and Laguna is driving in Class 6. Stacy is also driver of record for a team in Class 5-1600.
The Sportsman class winners returning from last year as of today are: Peter Lang, Santa Rosa, Calif. (SPT Buggy), Randy Swing, El Cajon, Calif. (SPT Truck) and Ulises Fierro, Tijuana, Mexico (SPT M/C>450cc). Lang has moved up to Class 6 this year and Fierro to Class 21.
Prominent Mexican racer Juan C. Lopez along with Cody Parkhouse, Mike Brown and Josh Frederick have all drew pole positions in their respective divisions for the race.
Mexico’s Lopez, who finished second in both Laughlin races and sixth in San Felipe in the No. 18 RPM OffRoad Chevy Silverado is second in SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck points. RPM OffRoad, based in Bristol, Tenn. leads the point standings in six classes after the first three races of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series. RPM has eight vehicles entered in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and as a team they have earned a total of 13 class wins the first three races of the season.
Besides Menzies and Lopez, among the other entries in SCORE Trophy Truck are current season point leader Rob MacCachren, the overall 4-wheel winner in this race in 1996 and a long list of other SCORE Trophy Truck winners in this event including Menzies (2011), Andy and Scott McMillin (2010), B.J. Baldwin (2008), Brian Collins (2006, 2007), Robby Gordon (2005), Alan Pflueger (2004) and Curt LeDuc (1995). Collins, Las Vegas will be the second driver for NASCAR Cup and Nationwide series driver Brendan Gaughan of Las Vegas, while LeDuc will be a driver for Nick Vanderwey, Phoenix.
Continuing to move out from the shadow of his father and his uncle’s experienced tracks, second-generation Southern California desert racer Cody Parkhouse of Long Beach, is fourth in SCORE overall points and continues to lead the unlimited Class 1 and will start first in his class in a Chevy-powered Jimco open-wheeled desert race car.
Brown, Murrieta, Calif., who ironically also drew the first start at the last SCORE race in San Felipe, will lead the motorcycle classes into the Baja desert with co-rider Quinn Cody, Los Olivos, Calif., on a factory-supported KTM 450SX-F.
A former SCORE Overall ATV point champion (2005), Josh Frederick, Moapa, Nev. and teammates Dillon Zimmerman, Murrieta, Calif. and Cesar Lopez, San Felipe, Mexico, will start first among the ATV classes in a Can-Am DS-450. Frederick won the first 2012 SCORE Baja race for ATVs in San Felipe.
While late entries will be accepted up to race morning, as of today, the Pro 4-Wheel vehicles classes with the most entries are: SCORE Trophy-Truck (39), the unlimited Class 1 (21), Class 10 (13) and Class 1/2-1600 (10).
Leading the pro motorcycle classes is the open Class 22 with nine entries to date.
Class 25 and Class 24 lead the ATV classes so far with six entries each and leading the Sportsman Motorcycles is the SPT M/C> class with 18 to date.
Following his third victory in the last five races and second in three races this season, Las Vegas’ All-America racer MacCachren has launched himself into the SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point lead after three of five races in the 2012 SCORE Desert Series.
With back to back overall wins in 2012 (Laughlin-Round 2 and San Felipe) after opening the season with a ninth-place finish in the first round in Laughlin, Nev., MacCachren, 47, has earned 177 championship points in the No. 20 Rockstar Energy/MasterCraft Racing Ford F-150. He is not only the SCORE Overall point leader, he is also at the top of the leaderboard in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division.The recent San Felipe victory was also MacCachren’s fourth in the last six SCORE races.
In San Felipe, MacCachren also earned the 75 all-time SCORE Baja overall race win for noted tired manufacturer BFGoodrich. BFG Tires have now been the tire of choice for the overall 4-wheel vehicle winners in 22 MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 races, 28 in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and 25 in the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.
SCORE points are based on starting, finishing, placement and number of official starters within each class.
With consistent Laughlin finishes of fourth and third along with a seventh in San Felipe, Steve Strobel, Clarks, Neb., has moved up to third in SCORE Overall points and remains third in SCORE Trophy Truck in the No. 94 Strobel Motorsports Ford F-150.
In addition to season class point championships, the racers are also competing for part of the nearly $400,000 in cash purse and contingency postings each race. Drivers in the Pro car and truck classes are also attempting to earn prestigious SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards given to all car and truck class drivers who complete every required mile of the five-race season. Being presented by Toyota Motorsports for the 27th consecutive year, a total of 31 drivers are still in the hunt for the awards for the 2012 SCORE Desert Series after the first two rounds in the five-race series.
