SAN DIEGO—SCORE International will celebrate on Saturday, Dec. 12 at the SCORE Tech Shop in El Cajon, Calif., during the 2015 SCORE Awards Night. The facility is located just east of San Diego.
At the Tech Shop, nearly 400 SCORE racers, family, friends, crews, sponsors and media will bask in the Southern California sunshine as the SCORE Awards Night will honor the history and fame of the name which is the standard for desert racing worldwide while celebrating the five-race 2015 SCORE World Desert Championship.
This year will mark the second time that the annual SCORE Awards Night has been held at the Tech Shop and the seventh time the historic evening will be held in Southern California since 2000, when it was held at Joe’s Garage automotive museum in Tustin, Calif. It will also be the sixth consecutive year in SoCal for the popular event.
“These evenings are always very special,” said Roger Norman, completing his third year as the SCORE CEO/President. “It is a great time for racers, families and crews to get together and celebrate another amazing SCORE racing season. This was our third year overseeing this international treasure we call SCORE and the SCORE Tech Shop will be transformed to provide a very fitting environment to honor the achievements of the world’s greatest desert racers.”
Reservations for tables of eight or 10, with tickets priced at $85 per person, are being accepted online at www.score-international.com or by calling the SCORE offices at 775.852.8907.

In addition to the special SCORE Achievement Awards and the Pro and Sportsman classes that had qualified racers for class season championships along with two overall point champions who will be honored. Another highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the annual SCORE Off-Roadsman of the Year Awards.
Individuals as well as manufacturers and organizations are honored through 11 distinct awards, whose winners are decided by several thousand SCORE fans through online voting including the entire SCORE membership of more than 2,500. Among the awards to be presented are SCORE Rookie of the year, SCORE Contingency Company of the year, SCORE Pit Support Team of the year, SCORE Mechanic of the year and SCORE Person of the year.
