UTVUnderground wants to congratulate all who took on the first race of the 2013 SCORE Baja race season in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico at the San Felipe 250. We want to extend a special congrats to Matt Parks in the 1932 Jagged X/Polaris XP4 for being the first to win in the newly created PRO UTV class at SCORE.  Parks cruised to a dominating win having an almost flawless day. We also want to give another huge congrats to Baja veteran Thomas Graves in the 1950 Yamaha Rhino for winning once again another Sportsman UTV race. That Rhino is unbelievable!

Thank you to Matt Parks and the entire Jagged X team for hosting us in Baja this weekend, we truly appreciate it and were glad we could witness this historic race for the UTV class. We are really looking forward to the 500 in June and hope to see even more UTV’s out there!!!

I wish I was able to snap more shots but Baja is really hard for us to chase because everyone gets so spread out. I got what I could and I will try to locate more images to share!
