Baja survivors remain in hunt for Toyota True Grit, Toyota Milestone awards.

TORRANCE, Calif. (July 9, 2002) - The arduous SCORE Baja 500 again claimed its share of competitors in 2002 with only 19 racers remaining eligible for the Toyota True Grit and Toyota Milestone Awards going into this weekend's Henderson Terrible 250, July 10-14. As it has for the last 16 years, Toyota will present the prestigious awards to the off-road racers who finish every mile of every race in the 2002 SCORE International Off-Road Racing Series.

Toyota Milestone Awards are presented to all SCORE off-road competitors in the professional four-wheel classes who complete every required mile in the six-race desert series. After 16 previously qualified drivers failed to finish the Baja 500, 19 racers in 12 classes remain eligible. In addition to the Terrible 250 in Henderson, Nev., each competitor will have to complete the Las Vegas Primm 300 (Sept. 13-14), and the Baja 1000 (Nov. 20-23).

Non-factory-backed competitors in classes 1/2-1600, 5, 10 and SCORE Lites who complete every required mile in the six-race series, and have the largest cumulative point total in each class, split the $12,000 Toyota True Grit prize fund. After finishing the Baja 500, six racers remain eligible.

The Toyota True Grit and Milestone Awards will be presented at the year-end SCORE awards banquet in December.
