Monster Energy Damage Report: Alan Ampudia

Apr 272021

Welcome to our newest photo series we call “Damage Report”. After each race, we will showcase battle-scarred off-road race vehicles through incredible photography, giving you a first-hand look at the brutality that these vehicles can survive. No other form of motorsports has the insane challenges of desert off-road racing. From the searing hot temperatures of the desert to the brutal rocky and silty terrain, these vehicles have to beat their competition through the roughest terrain on the planet, oftentimes while pushing their vehicles to their limits exceeding 140mph surviving the elements.  After every race, these vehicles have to be stripped down to their bare chassis and almost completely rebuilt for the next battle.

Alan Ampudia, in the  No.10 Trophy Truck, drove to a fourth-place finish in class and fourth overall at the 2021 SCORE-International San Felipe 250. 

“It started out good. But then I hit a G-out pretty good and clipped a very big rock and got a flat tire…So unfortunately we had to stop right off the bat and make a tire change. Ryan Arciero and Robby Gordon got by us so that cost us the fight at the end for the win. By the time we got by Tavo and Robby, the top three were over ten minutes ahead of us. We put our heads down and pushed and made up some time, but these guys run so fast there is only so much I can do. At the end of the race, by the dry lake bed, the truck was heating up a little bit so we decided to just bring it home and get the top-five finish, giving us a good starting position for the SCORE Baja 500, which is what our main objective was. And here we are, a top four or five, definitely not where we want to be, we want to be further upfront, but we will get our revenge at the SCORE Baja 500 in our hometown of Ensenada,” stated Alan. 


Alan Ampudia’s next race will be the SCORE Baja 500 June 9th -13th in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico
