LOS ANGELES--Following the fourth of five races in the 2010 SCORE Desert Series, 17 of SCORE's toughest drivers remain in the hunt to earn 2010 SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards.

Leading the way are three racers in the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division and four in Class 1-2/1600 for 1600cc VW-powered open-wheelers and along with five racers in SCORE Lite.

The three SCORE Trophy-Truck drivers who have completed every race mile so far this season are: Andy McMillin, National City, Calif. (No. 31, Ford F-150), Jesse Jones, Litchfield Park, Ariz. (No. 76, Ford F-150), and Nick Vanderwey, Phoenix (No. 84, Chevy Silverado). The talented trio are also the top three in the current SCORE Overall and SCORE Trophy-Truck point standings.

Nearly 300 entries are expected to compete in 28 Pro and 6 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks in the upcoming 43rd Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. The season finale of the five-race 2010 SCORE Desert Series will be held Nov. 16-20 in Mexico. It will start in Ensenada, Baja California and finish over 1000 miles later in La Paz, Baja California Sur, near the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Pre-race festivities will be held in Ensenada on Nov. 16 and 17, the race will start on Thursday, Nov. 18 and the awards celebration will be held at 4 p.m. Pacific Time on the Malecon in downtown La Paz on Saturday, Nov. 20.

The computerized drawing for start positions, by class, will be held Saturday, Oct. 9, at the SCORE headquarters in Los Angeles.

Toyota is presenting these prestigious awards to the world's toughest desert racers for the 25th consecutive year. The Toyota Milestone awards will go to those pro car and truck drivers who finish every required mile in the five-race 2010 SCORE Desert Series, the World's Foremost Desert Racing Series.

"Toyota is proud to honor the world's best desert racing drivers," said Les Unger, national motorsports manager at Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. "For a quarter of a century, Toyota has had the privilege of presenting the SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards to the toughest racers on the planet."
