(The inaugural SCORE Imperial Valley 250 is in the books)….SCORE had a superb first race in the Imperial Valley.
Those are the words of SCORE International CEO/President Roger Norman. The over-all winner of what could become an annual event was Andy McMillan in the 249.3-mile desert race. McMillan started second of the 14 vehicles in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division. The San Diego native had replaced owner/driver Rob Mac Cachern in the number 11 Rockstar Energy MacCachern Motorsports Ford F-150. The winning time was 4 hours, 31 minutes and one second. His average speed over the wind-blown course was 55.19 miles per hour. The race was run at 3 laps over a rugged 83.1-mile course. The gale force winds did not hamper the racers, but it did pummel the spectators, and it caused technical issues with the official timing of the race. SCORE was forced to release only partial results of the race. SCORE will review the data loggers in the vehicles of twp classes before the final results are announced. The event will be broadcast on a delayed basis on the CBS Sports channel in the US and Canada on Sunday evening June 15. After that the race will be broadcast to 100 countries around the world through international distribution. Norman said the event could not have been such a success without the major assistance of the Imperial Valley, from government and policy agencies to hundreds of volunteers who embraced the event in a major way.
