Fines Double Racing Wins the 2010 SCORE Baja 1000

Fines Double Racing Wins the 2010 SCORE Baja 1000
Arctic Cat 1000 LTD Dominates Longest Off-road Race in North America




The Fines Double Racing Team consisting of
Reid Rutherford, Tony Valerio, Benn Vernadakis and Agustin Maduena showed the rest
of the Class 26 competition that their Arctic Cat 1000 LTD 4x4 had what it takes to win
the 2010 Baja 1000.

Returning as the defending class champions, the team piloted their big Cat to the finish
line with an amazing time of thirty-nine hours and twenty-five minutes through the most
adverse of conditions, finishing four hours ahead of second place and several sport ATVs
and dirtbikes.

Team captain Reid Rutherford said, “We knew our fiercest class competitor would be
Mike Penland on his Can-Am 800, but by the time we hit San Felipe, we had a twenty
minute lead on second place and never looked back. The Arctic Cat 1000 ran flawlessly
for two days of endless punishment. Winning this race is quite a statement for the
durability of the Arctic Cat product.”

For 2010, the race started in Ensenada, Mexico, crossed the Peninsula twice and ended in
the southern city of La Paz totaling 1,067 race miles. The terrain is described as primitive
at best and ever-changing with silt, rocks, water crossings, heat, snow and outrageous
elevation changes.
