     RENO, Nev.— Called the SCORE Dirty Dozen–the ‘Young Guns’ of the 2014 SCORE World Desert Championship because of their talent and persona — the second half of the 12 racers will be featured in this week’s broadcast of the SCORE Dirt LiveHD Internet show. The show will debut at 7 p.m. (PT) tonight at www.score-international.com. The show will also be re-broadcast continuously on the SCORE website for the entire next week.
All less than 30 years old, the SCORE Dirty Dozen represents a cross section of the next generation of SCORE desert racers that have made and continue to emblazon the world of desert racing with their flamboyant skill and dynamic persona.
