Baja 1000 Stands Between Off Road'S Best And The Toyota True Grit And Milestone Awards

TORRANCE, Calif. (Nov. 5, 2001) - For the 17 off-road racers who have completed every mile in the 2001 Duralast SCORE Desert Series this season, now is not the time to relax. Although they have finished four punishing races so far, the world-renowned SCORE Tecate Baja 1000 remains as a daunting final hurdle in winning the Toyota True Grit and Toyota Milestone Awards.

Toyota Milestone Awards are presented to all SCORE off-road competitors in the professional four-wheel classes who complete every required mile in the five-race series. After four events, 17 racers in 10 classes remain eligible, with each having to complete the 691-mile Baja 1000, Nov. 8-11.

Non-factory-backed competitors in classes 1/2-1600, 5, 10 and SCORE Lites, who complete every required mile in the five-race series and have the largest cumulative point total in each class, split the $12,000 Toyota True Grit prize fund. Following the Primm 300 in September, eight racers remain eligible, with Rob MacCachren (1/2-1600), George Seeley Jr. (5), Danny Anderson (10) and Dennis Boyle (SCORE Lites) leading their respective classes.

The Toyota True Grit and Milestone Awards, in their 16th year, will be presented at the year-end SCORE Awards Banquet in December.
