Telecasts of SCORE World Desert Championship
RENO, Nev.—Fresh from another exciting and challenging adventure in SoCal’s Imperial Valley Desert, tonight’s SCORE DirtLiveHD Internet show at 7 p.m. (PT) will shine the SCORE spotlight on highlights from last week’s 19th annual Rigid Industries SCORE Desert Challenge, presented by the City of Imperial, Round 4 of the five-race SCORE World Desert Championship.
Last week’s special, two-part race spread over three days was held at Marty Coyne’s Coyne Powersports Motorplex in Imperial Valley, Calif. with pre-race activities held in downtown Imperial, Calif..
After its debut show in its normal time slot tonight at www.score-international.com, it will also be re-broadcast continuously on the SCORE website throughout the week ahead.
Coordinated by SCORE DirtLive HD creator and producer George Antill, tonight’s show will include 19th Annual Rigid Industries SCORE Desert Challenge special highlight packages with special segments on SCORE Trophy Truck, Class 1, Class 10, Motorcycles and ATVs along with an overview highlight segment of the other classes competing in the event. SCORE Trophy Truck winner was hometown racer Steven Eugenio of El Centro.
Another special package will be from the Imperial Big Air Shootout jump contest held last Thursday night at the Midwinter Fairgrounds in downtown Imperial. It was won by area racer Jeff Dickerson with an event-record jump.
The video of the week will be a SCORE race highlight package from BCII TV which produced the SCORE race broadcasts for the CBS Sports Spectacular show on the CBS Sports Network.
Tonight’s show will also preview the extended live coverage that SCORE DirtLiveHD will air from the massive SCORE Baja 1000 Exhibit in Hall 5 Saturday and Sunday from the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo at SoCal’s Pomona Fairplex. Coverage will include the Saturday’s 3 p.m. (PT) unveiling of the official course map and the drawing for starting positions for all classes except SCORE Trophy Truck and Class 1 (who will have qualifying at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in early November).
