TORRANCE, Calif. (July 25, 2000) - After three of five events, 22 drivers from 10 classes remain in competition for the 2000 Toyota Milestone Award, an honor given to racers who complete every mile of every race in the 2000 SCORE International Desert Series. Among the survivors, 13 drivers in the four non-factory endorsed classes remain eligible for the 2000 Toyota True Grit Award. It is presented annually to the driver with the highest-cumulative-point total for all five races in Class 1/2-1600, Class 5, Class 10 and SCORE Lite. A $12,000-prize fund will be split between the four potential Toyota True Grit class winners. "For 15 consecutive years, we have been proud to present the Toyota Milestone and Toyota True Grit Awards to the SCORE off-road racers who are able to reach the amazing goal of finishing every race," said Les Unger, Toyota's national motorsports manager. In order to remain eligible for the Toyota Milestone Award, the following drivers must finish the Las Vegas Primm 300 (Aug. 4-5) and the Tecate/SCORE Baja 2000 (Nov. 10-17): [TG denotes classes eligible for Toyota True Grit Awards]
