Over $10,000 cash contingency at Baja 500

MasterCraft Safety rolls over $10,000 cash contingency to Tecate SCORE Baja 500. Racers and fans alike recognized that MasterCraft Safety was the title sponsor for the 2010 MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250. Most also knew that MasterCraft Racing campaigned three SCORE Trophy-Trucks in San Felipe. Unfortunately, not as many racers realized that MasterCraft Safety was offering up $10,000 in contingency money, or what was required to qualify for the contingency funds. “There are racers in every class running our products, that is not the problem” commented MasterCraft Safety CEO, Robbie Pierce. "Unfortunately not everyone ran the signage required to qualify." Fortunately for SCORE racers, Pierce has decided to roll the contingency money over to the 42nd Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 on June 4 – 6.

To reiterate, the following is required in order to qualify for the contingency money. Any competitor utilizing at least one of the following MasterCraft Safety components is eligible to win, providing they run a 16 inch minimum size decal above the mudline on both sides of their race vehicle.
  • MasterCraft Safety suspension seats
  • MasterCraft Safety restraints
  • MasterCraft Safety driving suits

Payouts for class wins will be the same as proposed for San Felipe, and are as follows:

  • $5000 to first place in the SCORE Trophy-Truck Class
  • $2000 to first place for Class 1
  • $1000 to first place for 1/2 – 1600
  • $1000 to first place for SCORE Lite (Class 12)
  • $1000 to first place for Class 10

As in San Felipe, SCORE Trophy-Truck racers at the Baja 500 will not need to worry about competing against the three MasterCraft Safety Jimco SCORE Trophy-Trucks for contingency money, as they will not be eligible for the winnings.

All remaining class winners will receive a set of new MasterCraft Safety restraints and the only requirement will be to run a MasterCraft Safety decal at least 16 inches in size above mudline on both sides of their vehicle. MasterCraft Safety decals will be available from the MasterCraft Safety Contingency Booth for those competitors who do not already have the required signage to qualify for contingency on their race vehicles.

MasterCraft Safety recently expanded their product offering, making it easier than ever for racers and race teams to chose MasterCraft for their complete line of personal and pit crew safety needs. New products include a full-line of performance driving suits, fuel and pit crew fire suits, neck braces, helmet skirts, and elbow and knee pads for pit crew safety. Available in SFI 3.2A/1 and SFI 3.2A/5, the performance driving suits meet and exceed all stated fire protection requirements while providing a comfortable fit and design. Optional hidden-pockets and sewn-in elbow and knee pads make this the first race suit specifically tailored to the unique environmental conditions of desert racing.

As the leading manufacturer of performance off-road suspension seating, five-point restraints, window nets, and limit straps, MasterCraft Safety products can be found not only in the majority of desert racing vehicles, but in short course, NASCAR, military, and rock-crawling as well. MasterCraft Safety’s full-line of performance seating offers both comfort and protection in high “G” load situations and provides an 84% reduction of energy in a 50 G load impact.
