22 SCORE racers in hunt for Toyota Milestone Awards

Heading into 14th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300

LOS ANGELES—Following the first three of five races in the 2009 SCORE Desert Series, 22 of SCORE’s toughest drivers remain in the hunt to earn 2009 SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards.

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

Female driver Heidi Steele, San Clemente, Calif., is the only female racer still eligible, driving a Ford Ranger in Class 6.

The four SCORE Trophy-Truck drivers who have completed every race mile so far this season are: Robby Gordon (No. 77 Chevy CK1500), Ed Stout (No. 13 Chevy Silverado), Adam Householder (No. 24 Chevy Silverado) and Greg Nunley (No. 11 Chevy Silverado.

Nearly 125 entries are expected to compete in 18 Pro and 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks in the upcoming 14th SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300. Round four of the five-race 2009 SCORE Desert Series will be held Sept. 11-13 in Primm, Nev.

Toyota is presenting these prestigious awards to the world’s toughest desert racers for the 24th consecutive year. The Toyota Milestone awards will go to those pro car and truck drivers who finish every required mile in the five-race 2009 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 over two decades, we have had the privilege of presenting the SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards to the toughest racers on the planet.”

Racers from at least 12 U.S. States, Austria, Canada Germany and Mexico are expected to compete in this year’s SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300. For the eighth straight year, the race will be split into two groups, with the limited classes starting at 6 a.m. and the featured SCORE Trophy-Trucks and unlimited Class 1 cars starting at 1 p.m. Classes will be required to cover two, three or four laps over the 69-mile loop course that starts and finishes behind Buffalo Bill’s Resort within the seven hour time limit in the elapsed-time race to be official finishers.
