Matlock Racing has taken yet another SCORE victory, winning Class 25 of the 42nd annual Baja 500. The punishing desert race was held June 5 in Ensenada, Baja, Mexico.
Riders Wayne Matlock, Josh Caster and Wes Miller conquered the 439-mile course in 10:24:35 hours. “Our race went just as planned,” said Matlock. “We had the leader in our sight for most of the first half. At the halfway point we were neck and neck, and came into our pit for a scheduled tire and rider change. With fresh tires and a fresh rider, we charged into the lead and never looked back. At the end, we beat second place by over 50 minutes. I attribute a lot of our success in Baja to Maxxis tires and the fact that we can push so hard through the rough terrain and not worry about tearing up the tires.”
In all desert racing conditions, Matlock Racing equips its Honda TRX700XX with 22×10-11 Razr rears and 23×7-10 Razr fronts.
Defending champions from 2009 and currently first in the 2010 points standings, Matlock Racing also won the first SCORE race of the year, the San Felipe 250.
Maxxis congratulates Wayne Matlock and team thanks them for choosing the brand of champions.
