In the scheme of awesome things to do on a November weekend, liveblogging the SCORE Tecate Baja 1000 from a beefed up 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor R is way, way high up on the list. Unfortunately that's not what Mike Levine from PickupTrucks.com is up to but he is relaying reports from SVT which is out in the Mexican desert racing the mostly stock Raptor R in the Class 8 full-size two-wheel-drive truck category. The race has already kicked off and things seem to be going well, we're looking forward to seeing how that 500 HP Raptor R deals with the trials of the desert. [PickupTrucks.com]
