LAKE ELSINORE, CA – May 31, 2019 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Multi-Disciplinary Champion Sara Price will compete at the 51st SCORE International Baja 500.

‘’We had an incredible run at the Baja 250 coming in a solid 2nd place we are so close to that Win and this course is challenging, it’s very technical and there is a lot of areas that can end your race so patience will be key.’’ said Price.
Waypoint Nav School Navigator Erica Sacks will be alongside Price for the race. ‘’ This is going to be a very technical-dusty course, leaving little room for errors. Patience and very detailed notes is going to be the best strategy to make it to the finish line.’’ said Sacks.
