The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 has captured the imagination of the entire world as entries have come not only from every state in the UnitedStates, but also has attracted racers from Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, France, Germany, Guam, Holland, Italy, Japan, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Uruguay, Yugoslavia as well as the host country of Mexico.

The first known record run occurred in 1962. Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson Jr. timed theirtrip from Tijuana to La Paz on a pair of Honda 250 motorcycles. Ekins made it in 39 hours, 54 minutes, Robertson in less than an hour slower. There were no official timers, of course, and to establish that they had made the trip, the two motorcycle racers time-stamped a sheet of paper in the Tijuana telegraph office and time-stamped it again at the telegraph office when they arrived in La Paz.Capitalizing on the pioneer effort of Ekins and Robertson, Chevrolet commissioned car builder Bill Stroppe to prepare a small fleet of trucks for the run to La Paz. Late that year they left Long Beach, Calif., and all of them reached La Paz. Advertising and publicity campaigns heralded the feat as "the roughest run under the sun."
