SCORE Primm 300 Big Changes

August 24, 2007

Sept. 7-8 in Primm, Nev.

New name, return to original start/finish area, first indoor

Contingency all part of 12th SCORE Terrible's Primm 300

Over 175 entries in18 Pro & 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks

Expected for Round 5 of six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series

LOS ANGELES—New ownership of the Primm Valley Resorts in Southern Nevada by Las Vegas-based Herbst Gaming has brought a new name, a return to the original start/finish line area and the sport’s first indoor pre-race contingency for next month’s newly named 12th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 desert race. SCORE officials announced the changes today for Round 5 of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series, to be held Sept. 7-8 in Primm, Nev., located 45 miles South of Las Vegas at the Nevada/California border.

Celebrating its 34th season this year as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, the SCORE Desert Series is returning to Southern Nevada for the last of its three annual races in the U.S.

The 12th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 will feature 18 Pro and 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks. With 168 official entries to date, this year’s starting grid is expected to reach over 175 vehicles.

For the sixth consecutive year, the race will be split into two groups with the open wheel, VW baja bug and slower truck classes starting at 6 a.m. The remaining truck classes, including the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division along with the unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars, will start at 1 p.m. One vehicle will start every 30 seconds in the elapsed-time race with a seven-hour time limit to become official finishers.

“We have had great relationships with the two previous owners of the Primm resort area, but the Herbst family is part of our SCORE racing family and their new ownership has had an immediate impact on this event and will take it to an entirely new level even before the green flag drops,” said Sal Fish, SCORE CEO and President. “We sincerely thank the Herbst family for once again assisting our sport in such a magnanimous way.”

Besides adding the prominent Terrible’s name to the title of the race, the Herbst family, working with Reliant Energy, and the Bureau of Land Management have together finalized an agreement that will allow the start/finish line area to return to the desert adjacent to the parking lot on the backside of the Buffalo Bill’s Resort. Because of land closures in the Primm area, SCORE was forced to move its start/finish line area onto a dry lake bed on the east side of the railroad tracks in the middle of the desert for the last two years. The land used for the first nine years of the event included the only access tunnel under the railroad tracks to the majority of the open desert used for the race course. That land is now being developed by the Clark County Department of Aviation for the new Ivanpah regional airport and is closed to off-highway vehicle use.

To enable the race to start and finish in a more fan and racer-friendly area like it did for its first nine years, the race vehicles will be able to head out into the open desert by crossing the railroad tracks by using the Reliant Energy private paved bridge. The bridge is located adjacent to the East side of the property, between Buffalo Bill’s and the Primm Valley Resort.

The Herbst family is also allowing SCORE to have the majority of the pre-race Manufacturer’s Midway and contingency to be held on the floor of the spacious Star of the Desert Arena at Buffalo Bill’s. This will mark the first time in desert racing history that this popular pre-race activity will be held indoors. The midway will start just outside of the back entrance to the arena with the 18-wheeler displays, extending inside the arena for the balance of the more than 50 race-related companies who will be participating.

“This will create a unique and different environment for our pre-race activities, with music and multi-media opportunities to make the experience even more enjoyable and fan-friendly,” added Fish. “The Herbst family will also be adding their own special brand of ‘Terrible’s’ hospitality to the entire event, including a fiesta-type atmosphere at both the start/finish line area and our post-race awards celebration. The awards are being moved back to Saturday night at 10 p.m. in the Star of the Desert Arena after the last several years of it being held on Sunday morning.”

Good fortune smiled down on veteran racer and TV sportscaster Cameron Steele, who drew the first starting position in both the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck and the SCORE Lite divisions in the computerized drawing for starting positions on Aug. 8.

In a sport where there is no qualifying or open pre-running (in the U.S.), the drawing for start positions has added significance and the Steele’s No. 16 Desert Assassins Chevy Silverado SCORE Trophy-Truck and No. 1201 VW-powered Desert Assassins open-wheel desert race car were selected randomly in the computerized drawing at the SCORE Int’l headquarters in Los Angeles.

A total of 28 SCORE Trophy-Trucks are entered to date, and the high-tech, 800-horsepower unlimited production trucks will lead the afternoon group into the Southern Nevada desert.

The first vehicle to leave the start line in the morning portion of the event will be Class 10 husband and wife racers Adam and Bekki Wik of Las Vegas, in a Honda-powered Jimco open-wheel desert race car.

Ten of last year’s 17 Pro class winners have entered so far, including four of last year’s top five overall finishers. Also entered are 9 of the first 11 overall winners of the race.

With one race win this season, Steele is leading the SCORE Lite point standings, but he has struggled in SCORE Trophy-Truck where he is currently 22nd in points.

Starting behind the 28 SCORE Trophy-Trucks will be the unlimited Class 1 for open-wheel desert race cars. In the first 11 years of the SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300, SCORE Trophy-Trucks have seven Overall race wins while Class 1 has four.

Drawing the first starting spot in Class 1 was Todd Cuffaro. Coronado, Calif., in a Chevy-powered Porter open-wheel desert race car.

Eric Solorzano, Tijuana, Mexico, and George Seeley, Glendale, Calif., have the most class wins in the SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300. Solorzano has won Class 11 in seven of the first 11 years of this race in a VW Sedan while Seeley has five victories in Class 5 in his unlimited VW Baja Bug.

Bob Shepard, Phoenix, returns as the defending overall and SCORE Trophy-Truck winner in the No. 82 Arciero-Miller Racing Chevy CK1500 but he has a new racing partner this year in Ryan Arciero, Foothill Ranch, Calif., who is actually the team’s driver of record this year.

Larry Roeseler, Hesperia, Calif., and Las Vegas’ Troy Herbst, who finished second overall last year (4 minutes, 15 seconds behind Shepard) and won Class 1 last year return in the No. 100 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Smithbuilt-Ford.

Behind Class 1 (36 entries), the classes with the most entries to date are: SCORE Trophy-Truck (28), Class 1-2/1600 (24), SCORE Lite (16) and Class 10 (13).

The highly-competitive SCORE Desert Series has 21 racers separated by just 54 points in the Overall standings after four rounds of the 2007 season.

Pre-race festivities on Friday (Sept. 7) for the SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300, including tech and contingency and the SCORE Manufacturer’s Midway, will be held from Noon to 6 p.m. in the Star of the Desert Arena at Buffalo Bill’s. The post-race awards celebration will be held at the Star of the Desert Arena at 10 p.m. on Saturday (Sept. 8).

The 2007 SCORE Desert Series includes the chase for the $75,000 Kartek Off-Road contingency bonus to be awarded to several 2007 SCORE Class point champions along with the run for the $12,000 Toyota True Grit and Toyota Milestone Awards.

Current SCORE official annual sponsors are: BFGoodrich Tires-official tire, Sunoco Race Fuels/Bryant Petroleum-official fuel supplier, Bilstein-official shock, Volkswagen-official vehicle, Instant Mexico Auto Insurance-official Mexican auto insurance, American Racing ATX Series-official wheel, Slime-official tire sealant, Airstar America-official space lighting provider, Red Bull--official energy drink and Bosch Power Tools-official power tool.

McLaren close to deal to sell cars to Richards

A cut-price Formula One team will save £150 million by not designing or making their own cars but by buying the same machines that propel Lewis Hamilton to victory.

McLaren Mercedes are said to be days away from signing a deal to supply cars and engines to a team being set up by David Richards, the former BAR Honda team principal and now head of the Aston Martin car company.

Formula One has become as much a contest between constructors as drivers with teams such as McLaren spending tens of millions of pounds designing sophisticated cars to beat rivals from Ferrari, Williams and Renault.

But Richards will enter the sport next year by a route that may anger traditionalists but which has been personally sanctioned by Max Mosley, president of the FIA, Formula One’s governing body. Mosley wants to slash the costs of entering a sport that, at the moment, demands entrepreneurs find as much as £100 million to design and build their own cars.

But Richards will simply buy complete cars from McLaren and then run them at Grand Prix events in direct competition with the same cars being driven by Hamilton and Fernando Alonso, his teammate.

While McLaren’s annual spending on research, development and manufacturing is thought to be more than £180 million a year, Richards’s as yet unnamed team will do the job for a fraction of the cost, thought to be about £30 million.

Richards said yesterday: “McLaren is one of three possible options for us, but they are closest. We will not be able to make an announcement until next month but talks are progressing very well and we will be on the Formula One grid in 2008.”

Sir Frank Williams, one of the longest serving team owners, is known to be opposed to teams racing so-called customer cars but Mosley points out that entrepreneurs such as him, who started more than 30 years ago, are now barred from entering F1 because of the prohibitive cost. Eddie Jordan was the last of the entrepreneur-owners to enter in 1991 and his place has been taken by car manufacturers and billion dollar conglomerates, including the Red Bull drinks operation.

Red Bull, with Honda, are already involved in supplying “junior” teams but on a downgraded scale: Super Aguri is using the Hondas driven in 2006 by Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello, while Red Bull provides Scuderia Toro Rosso with variants of their machines.

But the McLaren deal would be the first full-blown supply of up-to-date cars to an independent rival, effectively creating a McLaren second team. Some sponsors who have been unable to join the McLaren roster this year are thought to be interested in switching to Richards’s operation.

It will be a masterstroke if Richards can pull off the McLaren contract. He proved to be one of Formula One’s cleverest strategists when he rescued Button from oblivion, placed him at BAR Honda and then propelled him to third place in the World Championship.

Richards left when Honda took over the operation but his own company, Prodrive, is one of the most successful in the motor industry, designing and manufacturing for some of the world’s biggest car companies. He also runs the World Championship-winning Subaru rally team and now heads the Aston Martin car company, which he took over this year backed by money from the Middle East.

Final legal issues are thought to stand in the way before McLaren can start supplying Richards. But those loopholes are expected to be cleared quickly and then the FIA will give the go-ahead for Richards to start his operation and become the twelfth team on the Formula One grid at the start of the 2008 season.

Volkswagen, BFGoodrich Tires, Blue C Named Presenting Sponsors for SCORE International’s ‘40 Years to Glory’ Gala

August 20, 2007

Volkswagen, BFGoodrich Tires, Blue C Named Presenting

Sponsors for SCORE International’s ‘40 Years to Glory’ Gala

Dirt Sports Magazine, Hot Rod Magazine, Bandito Brothers and Kartek Off-Road

Announced as Supporting Sponsors for Sept. 27 Celebration in Long Beach

LOS ANGELES--Billed as the largest evening ever held in desert racing’s long and colorful history, SCORE International’s forthcoming ‘40 Years to Glory’ gala will incorporate the horsepower of growing corporate support for September’s unique motorsports celebration. To be held Thursday, Sept. 27, 2007 at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, the gala evening will be a tribute to November’s 40th anniversary of the internationally renowned Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

SCORE International President Sal Fish and 40 Years to Glory Executive Producer Marty Fiolka today announced the support of an impressive list of corporate partners that will help turn a once-unfathomable concept into a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime reality. The presenting sponsors for the extravaganza will be Volkswagen of America, BFGoodrich Tires and Blue C Communications.

“Anytime you produce a major event like ‘40 Years to Glory’, there are milestones that are reached telling you that your timing, scope and purpose are on track,” explained Fish. “From the moment we explained the event concept to SCORE’s incredibly generous family of series partners, the amount of support we’ve enjoyed has been both gratifying and very much appreciated. ‘40 Years to Glory’ would never happen without them.”

Leading the list of presenting partners is Volkswagen of America, an automotive manufacturer with a Baja heritage stretching back to 1967 when a VW-powered Meyers Manx dune buggy driven by Vic Wilson and Ted Mangels captured the inaugural Mexican 1000 overall win. In the four decades following that historic achievement, Volkswagen-based vehicles have posted more Baja victories than all other manufacturers combined.

Recently named the official vehicle of SCORE International, Volkswagen and their Red Bull Touareg Dakar Rally works cars were the talk of the largest SCORE Baja 500 field in history thanks to an eye-opening performance that saw both under-powered, under-suspended VW machines place in the top-20 overall finishing positions.

In keeping with VW’s unmatched Baja 1000 heritage, company officials are expected to utilize ‘40 Years to Glory’ to announce very special plans related to November’s Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

Another long-time race supporter also backing the historic ‘40 Years to Glory’ gala is BFGoodrich, widely recognized as the official tire of SCORE International. BFGoodrich Tires took its first Baja win in 1977 as Frank “Scoop” Vessels won Class 8 for production trucks running the company’s innovative All-Terrain radial T/A. BFGoodrich-shod vehicles went on to claim 20 consecutive SCORE Baja 1000 overall victories from 1986 through 2005. Like Volkswagen, BFGoodrich Tires has plans to optimize their event participation by announcing major 2007 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 news.

Blue C, a full-service communications company based in Newport Beach, Calif., was the first corporate supporter to back ‘40 Years to Glory’. Blue C is an award-winning agency whose clientele includes Toyota, Kawasaki, American Racing Wheel as well as SCORE International. A collaborative effort of partners Eric Morley and Jeff Bentley, Blue C’s branding magic is evident throughout every aspect of the ‘40 Years to Glory’ extensive marketing campaign; including the Website, print ads, on-site signage and event invitations.

Two magazines covering two different eras of Baja 1000 history are also involved with SCORE’s ‘40 Years to Glory’ event. Advanstar’s Dirt Sports magazine has been the sport’s premier print publication for just over three years; a highly successful blend of in-depth race coverage and award-winning photography. Primedia’s legendary Hot Rod magazine will also be involved with the event. Hot Rod was instrumental in documenting and promoting the formative years of Baja racing, and will contribute select black and white images taken from their epic photographic archives. Both Dirt Sports and Hot Rod will also sponsor media-related tributes during the ‘40 Years to Glory’ stage presentation.

The talents of the Los Angeles-based Bandito Brothers will comprise some of the highlights of the evening’s multi-media stage presentation. Two of the creative minds behind the SCORE Baja 1000 documentary film Dust to Glory, Scott Waugh and Mike “Mouse” McCoy’s Bandito Brother’s production company will provide creative and editing expertise for ‘40 Years to Glory’. Their upstart company recently completed high-end video productions for Volkswagen of America, BFGoodrich Tires and the United States Air Force.

Additionally, Corona, California-based Kartek Off-Road will also lend support to ‘40 Years to Glory’. Kartek Off-Road is a leading retailer of off-road and motorsports parts, together with its Pro-Am Racing Products division. Kartek is also a leading sponsor of the SCORE International desert racing, posting a total of $75,000 for the 2007 series championship point fund.

Tickets for this never-to-be-repeated event are now on sale from the Long Beach Performing Arts Center box office or via Ticketmaster at (213) 480-3232 or (714) 740-2000 or online at Guest tickets will include admission, dinner, and a commemorative event program. Like a concert or play, guests will also be provided with a reserved seat inside the Terrace Theater and sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

This year’s 40th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, the season finale of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs, will be held Nov. 10-16 as a journey down Mexico’s majestic Baja California peninsula. With pre-race activities in Tijuana, the race will start in Ensenada and finish some 1,300 miles later in Cabo San Lucas. With nearly 350 entries expected from 40 U.S. States and 15 countries, the historic race will be taped by NBC Sports to air on Dec. 30 on NBC TV, followed by numerous worldwide telecasts on ESPN International.

Mongo Racing - Vegas to Reno Press release

There's an age-old saying about how sizzling the summers are in Parker,

It goes like this: "It gets so hot, the people who live there have to turn
on their heaters to cool off."

So, you'll have to excuse Randy Merritt if he snickers a bit while reading
the pre-race notes for the 2007 TSCO Vegas to Reno off-road race.

That's because, note No. 44 states, "Be prepared for hot weather in Las
Vegas ... "

The way Merritt and his Mongo Racing Team see it, this will be more like a
vacation for them, after spending the summer at home in Parker, where the
mercury has hovered in the 114-degree range on a daily basis, with humidity
in the neighborhood of 60 percent.

"We'll be glad to get out of here and go anywhere where it's cooler,"
said Merritt with a laugh as he prepared for the race, the third on the
Best in the Desert Racing Association championship schedule. He enters the
race, which is billed as the longest race in the United States, as the
defending champion in Class 8100 (stock full trucks).

Merritt is also the defending overall Class 8100 champion.

The 2007 race is scheduled to begin Friday (Aug. 24) outside Pahrump, Nev.,
located approximately 60 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The finish line is
559.3 miles away, outside Reno.

A year ago, Merritt drove the Goodyear-shod, Mongo Racing KC HiLites Ford
F-150 to the win in 13 hours, two minutes, 13 seconds. He beat his nearest
competitor in class by a scant 40 seconds, and finished 28th overall.

The race proved the be the turning point in Merritt's drive to the 2006
class driving championship, vaulting him to the top of the point standings,
where he remained for the remainder of the season.

He's hoping to have the same good fortune in 2007. Entering the race he is
tied for the lead in points with Hummer driver Chad Hall.

"This is the race where we made a statement last year," said Merritt. "I
hope we can do it again this year."

It's been a busy summer for Merritt and his team. They are coming off a win
in the Terrible's Town 250 in April, in which "the truck was beat up real
bad," said Merritt.

"So it was a good thing we had a long break between races."

Merritt also spent some time behind the wheel of the Kreg Donahoe monster
Ford Super Duty at the SNORE KC HiLites Midnight Special in El Dorado
Valley, Nev., outside Las Vegas at the end of June.

The purpose was to get Merritt familiar with Donahoe's truck, in preparation
for the 2007 SCORE Baja 1000, in which Donahoe is expected to share the
driving duty with Merritt.

"I guess you could say we've been busy," said Merritt.

"But we'll be ready. The whole Mongo Racing Team has put in a lot of time
and sweat, and I do mean sweat, to get the truck prepped and ready to go.
All I say can now is, we've done as much as we can do.

"With a race this long and this challenging ahead of us, all we can hope for
now is a little luck to be on our side when we leave the starting line."

We would like to thank our Sponsors:
Ford trucks, KCHiliTES, Goodyear, Swayaway, F&M Baldenegro farms,
JDsquare, Borla, Race Craft, Donahoe, True Flow, Bodyline, Chase Cam
Raceline Tires and Autofab.

Dixon Brothers Racing
Lompoc, CA - August 20, 2007: Hoping to capitalize on a favorable starting position at Best in the Desert
Racing Association’s ‘Vegas to Reno’ race on August 24th, Aaron and Ian Dixon bring their #7177 Dixon Bros.
Racing Ford Ranger pickup to Las Vegas only seven points off the lead in the race for the 2007 Class 7100 points
championship. The Dixon Brothers, who won this event in 2003, on their way to the Class 7300 Silver State Series
points championship, which they won in 2003 and 2004, have their sights set on another championship in 2007, this
time in Class 7100. Billed as “The Longest Off-Road Race in the United States”, festivities for the ‘Vegas to Reno’
race begin with tech and contingency throughout the day on Thursday, August 23 at the South Point Hotel and Casino
in Las Vegas. On Friday morning the action moves 72 miles west, to the starting line in the old mining area at Johnnie,
NV, where more than 150 cars and trucks are scheduled to stage for the start of the race at 10:30 AM. During the race,
which covers 570 miles across parts of the Mojave and Great Basin deserts, racers will face elevation changes ranging
from 2,000 feet through the sand washes and river beds in the south to over 6000 feet across the northern mountain
ranges to finish in Dayton, Nevada just south of Reno.
There’s no question that such a demanding race requires serious attention to detail if you hope to finish, let alone
finish well. After the ‘Terrible’s Town 250’, in April, team leader, Aaron Dixon began preparing the truck to meet the
challenge of the ‘Vegas to Reno’. Since building the Class 7100 Ranger in January, the Dixon’s have been paying close
attention to any problems in the Ranger’s design and have devoted all of their available time between each race to
perfecting the truck’s performance. After the ‘Parker 425’, Aaron and his crew made a number of modifications to the
front suspension, designed to increase the front suspension travel. At Terrible’s Town however, the increased travel
allowed the shocks to contact the driver’s side upper A-arm at full compression causing damage to both outer shafts of
the front shocks. To cure that problem, the shocks have been remounted to allow for adequate clearance and the
conventional bump stops have been replaced with a set of Light Racing’s JounceShocksTM to eliminate damage to the
front suspension at full compression. Another issue which cost us time at the last race was a fuel starvation problem.
Although it turned out to be nothing more than a fuel line that came loose, repairing it required disassembling the fuel
cell out on the course, costing the team over an hour of downtime, once again demonstrating that the devil is in the
details. Once back at the shop, the cell was disassembled, one more time, and the fuel line rerouted so this particular
gremlin would not jump up and bite us again in the future. After giving the truck a detailed race prep and adding a new
HID lighting system from KC HiLiTES, the #7177 Dixon Bros. Racing Ford Ranger has been tested and is ready to
take the green flag on Friday morning.
Aaron will start the race with Ed Ramirez in the second seat. At Goldfield, 186 miles into the race, Ian Dixon
will take over behind the wheel and Phil Ramirez will navigate until the truck reaches Mina, at racemile 379, where
Aaron and Ed will get back in the truck and take it to the finish. Rounding out this family effort, in the support vehicles,
will be Jim Dixon, the driver’s father and Andrea and Manny Ramirez, the co-rider’s parents. Everyone on the team is
looking forward to a family reunion at the finish line, in Dayton sometime in the early morning hours on Saturday.
