Former SCORE father and son racers Marty and Travis Coyne providing exclusive SCORE discounts
RENO, Nev. — Continuing to add to its growing list of sponsor partnerships, SCORE International has announced that Coyne Powersports Group has been selected as the Official Powersports supplier of both SCORE and the SCORE World Desert Championship.
The unique special vendor program sponsorship includes exclusive discounts to member of SCORE and their extending racing groups as well as a special discount program for other SCORE sponsors as well as raceteam sponsors. The discount programs including the vehicles, accessories and hard parts.

Former SCORE father and son racers Marty and Travis Coyne are president and vice-president of sales respectively for Coyne Powersports Group.
“The new generation of the Polaris RZR UTV is becoming a real viable option to use as a serious pre-runner,” commented Roger Norman, SCORE CEO and President. “The entire 2014 SCORE Baja 1000 course, one of the roughest in recent history utilized two brand new 2015 Polaris RZR XP 1000 4’s. These machines went straight off the Coyne Powersports showroom floor right to Baja, and provided us with three weeks of trouble free off-roading while marking the course in one of the world’s toughest environments, the Baja peninsula.”
“SCORE is very pleased to develop this one-of-a-kind sales program with special discounts for all of our other sponsors, racers and SCORE members. And we look forward to again working with Marty, Travis and their Coyne Powersports team to present September’s SCORE Imperial Valley 250 in Plaster City.”
