46th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 June 4-8 in Ensenada, Mexico
SAN DIEGO—In preparation for next week’s 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the SCORE spotlight on Tuesday’s SCORE Dirt LiveHD Internet show will be on SCORE Trophy Truck racer Jay Reichert and SCORE’s Dick Gray, race director for the upcoming race. Round 3 of the five-race 2014 SCORE World Desert Championship will be held June 4-8 in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, 86 miles south of the U.S. border at San Diego.
Celebrating its 41st season in 2014 as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization, SCORE races are taped for airing in the United States and Canada as one-hour specials on the CBS Sports Network. Next up will be the first of a minimum of two broadcasts of the Inaugural SCORE Imperial Valley 250 scheduled to air on Sunday, June 15 at 6 p.m. PT. The race will also air internationally in over 100 countries through an international distributor.
During the 21st episode of the 2014 SCORE Dirt LiveHD season at 7 p.m. (PT) on Tuesday coverage and interviews with Reichert will include dyno work on his truck’s engine at Las Vegas’ award-winning Kroyer Racing Engines as well as testing for next week’s race in the desert near Jean, Nev., 20 miles south of Las Vegas.
With several million viewers in nearly 100 countries, the SCORE Dirt LiveHD one-hour show is broadcast live weekly and the show is anchored in 2014 around the five-race SCORE World Desert Championship.
Reichert, 44 of Johnson City, Texas, and his teammate Charles Dorrance, 38 of Austin, Texas, sharing the driving duties in their No. 26 R& D Motorsports Ford Raptor in the featured SCORE racing division for high-tech, 850 horsepower, unlimited production trucks. R&D Motorsports debuted its sparkling new truck last year. It was built by Southern California’s award-winning chassis builder Jimco and the truck’s engine was built by Kevin Kroyer at his Kroyer Racing Engines shop at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
A fulltime employee of SCORE International, Dick Gray is the race director for the upcoming race and is part of the course-marking team for SCORE race courses and will go over in detail this year’s 446.9-mile desert race course in the Northern part of the Baja California peninsula.
The 2014 season of SCORE Dirt LiveHD includes numerous on-site interviews in addition to the shows that are broadcast from the SCORE broadcast studios in El Cajon, Calif., just east of San Diego.
The high definition shows also includes numerous award-winning video highlight packages, most produced by Mexico’s Cactus Films or San Diego’s Tempt Media.
SCORE Dirt LiveHD also goes on-site live with expanded event coverage during SCORE events. Live event coverage in 2014 includes the entire five-race 2014 SCORE World Desert Championship of two races in the United States and three in Baja California, Mexico. The third round of the new SCORE World Desert Championship will be the upcoming 46th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 that will start and finish in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.
