With entries to date from 13 U.S. states along with Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany and Mexico, Rounds 1 and 2 of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series will be held this coming Friday through Sunday (Jan. 13-15) along the banks of the Colorado River in the Southern Nevada resort destination of Laughlin.
For the first time in the history of the event, each day of the two-day Laughlin gathering (Jan. 14, Jan. 15) will be separate race events for purposes of championship points, prize money and trophies.
The Laughlin event features course qualifying for the Trophy Truck class on Friday followed by two separate and independent races, the first on Saturday and the second on Sunday. Sponsor CANIDAE Pet Foods will also be on hand with coupons and free samples for fans during contingency and safety inspections being held on Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the Edgewater and Colorado Belle Hotels on Casino Drive in the heart of the Laughlin resort area.
"We're excited to be back competing in this great sport for 2012, said co-driver Gailey. We've put in a lot of hard work on the truck during the off season and now we're all eager to get back out on the track starting with this SCORE opening race in Laughlin. We're very grateful we are able to do what we love and always remember that without the support of our sponsors, racing would not be possible. On behalf of the entire team, I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of our sponsors for their support and for representing the finest in motorsports technologies.
