Mexico’s young gun Eduardo Laguna who came from behind to capture the Overall and SCORE Trophy Truck victory in the history-making Inaugural Bud Light SCORE Baja Sur 500 desert race will be spotlighted during Sunday’s premier telecast of the race on the CBS Sports Network. The debut of the one-hour special will air on the CBS Sports Spectacular show at 9 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, followed by multiple repeat airings.
Announcers for the CBS Sports Network telecast of the Bud Light SCORE Baja Sur 500 are SCORE racers Cameron Steele and Ricky Johnson.
Combining the grit, stamina, determination and talent of youth with the sage experience of a committed, savvy, veteran team behind him, Laguna, 24, of Mexicali, led racers from 12 U.S. States and five countries to the finish line in Loreto over the tight, technical 424.52-mile course that started in Cabo San Lucas in the No. 17 RPM Racing Chevy Silverado SCORE Trophy Truck.
The victory also represented the 83rd overall win in SCORE Baja racing for long-time SCORE major sponsor BFGoodrich Tires.
Celebrating its 42nd year as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization, the southern state of Mexico’s majestic Baja California peninsula hosted the first SCORE race entirely run on the southernmost part of the peninsula.
Competing in Pro and Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads, the race had 82 starters of which 59 officially finished the 424.52-mile course. With an exceptionally high finishing rate of 72.0 percent, the elapsed time race had a 17 hour time limit to become an official finisher.
Capping off the 2015 broadcast season, the Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 broadcast on CBS Sports Network will be expanded to a full two-hour program – providing the most expansive television coverage of the “Main Event” of all desert races ever, allowing all the major class action to be showcased around the globe to the SCORE International fan base.
