SCORE Desert Championship Series Will Focus On Mexico Racing Legacy With Three Baja Races

LOS ANGELES—Preparing to celebrate its 40th year as the world’s foremost desert racing sanctioning body, SCORE International today officially announced the 2013 SCORE Desert Championship Series schedule, which will consist of the three traditional major desert races held on Mexico’s majestic Baja Peninsula.

“We are excited to offer the racing community a three-race SCORE Desert Championship Series in 2013 that involves only our legendary Baja races. These three races have always been the cornerstones of SCORE.” said Sal Fish, CEO/President of SCORE International.

Fish continued, “I want to focus my attention on the heart and soul of SCORE, which is in Baja. We have thoroughly enjoyed nearly 20 years of racing in Nevada, but for a variety of significant reasons, these races are no longer viable events for SCORE.”

“There are several organizations offering desert races in the United States to satisfy that market, but there is no organization offering the extreme adventure and intense competition of SCORE Baja racing, and that’s why SCORE will concentrate its efforts south of the border,” said Fish.
