Kirk Kovel Memoriam

IN MEMORIAM – Kirk Kovel, 59, a long-time SCORE racer and professional machinist passed away last week as the result of injuries sustained in a two-car accident near Tampa, Fla. Kovel had homes in Florida and Colorado.

Born in Chicago on Jan. 27, 1956, Kovel raced in Class 3 in both the original HDRA series and the SCORE desert series in a vintage Ford Bronco. His last SCORE race was the 2009 SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 and among his desert racing victories were his Class 3 wins in the inaugural SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 in 1996 and the 2001 SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge.

All of us in the SCORE family send our condolences, thoughts and prayers to his wife Tammy and the entire Kovel family.
