For the second straight year, "Ballistic" B.J. Baldwin endured 885 miles of grueling off-road racing to finish first in the SCORE Tecate Baja 1000 four-wheel showdown.

Baldwin endured the rough terrains through the night to become the unofficial winner of the Baja 1000, a demanding course in Mexico that draws many motorsports competitors to play.

Score International tweeted out the unofficial leaderboard.

According to Race Dezert, the victory also secures his overall points lead during a highly successful season for Baldwin. 

Baldwin again rode solo as he zoomed the rigorous course, which started and ended in Ensenanda, Baja California. The team of Rob MacCachren and Andy McMillin gave the one-man wolf pack a ride for his money, but it was not enough to end Baldwin's reign on top.

With the race still stewing along in its second day, official times and results are still yet to be determined. Score International provides all the up-to-the-minute information with a leaderboard and live stream of the event.

In Friday night's motorcycle race, the Johnny Campbell Racing Honda team of Tim Weigand, Colton Udall, David Kamo and Mark Samuels won with a time of 18 hours, 29 minutes and 14.24 seconds, securing the Honda team's 17th consecutive victory. 

The team traveled through a rocky and foggy course at an average speed of 47.77 mph. Uncertainty loomed over the group before the way, mostly due to Samuels entering the mix for the first time, but it kept the Honda streak intact for one more year.

Unfortunately, a tragedy unfolded during the competition, as Kurt Caselli died from head injuries suffered from a motorcycle crash.

Initial speculation circulated about a man-planted booby trap that caused Caselli's death, but ESPN's Colin Bane reported that those rumors are unsubstantiated. 

Early reports that the crash was related to an on-course booby trap or other sabotage have been discredited, though an investigation is underway. Caselli reportedly died during transport to a hospital in nearby Ensenada. 

Caselli, 30, was a decorated racer who won three straight AMA National Hare & Hound Championship titles, as well as the AMA Sportsman of the Year in 2007.
