ENSENADA, Mexico — With the SCORE spotlight clearly focused on next month’s Rosarito Beach 20th SCORE Desert Challenge, Volume 2, No. 8 of the SCORE Journal, the colorful monthly on-line digital magazine of SCORE International is now live on the SCORE website at www.SCORE-International.com and is available through SCORE social media channels as well as a direct link at http://scorejournal.digital.
While each issue is packed full of more interesting stories, features, notes, photos and video clips saluting the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship, the highlight of the issue is centered around the first SCORE race held in Rosarito Beach, Mexico.
Baja California has once again opened its welcoming hands of hospitality for Round 3 of the 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship, to be held Sept. 15-18 in and around Rosarito Beach, just 19 miles south of the U.S. border at San Diego.
The SCORE Journal digital magazine, reaching 2.5 million unique viewers with the June issue with an average engagement time of over 40 minutes is a major element in the continuing media expansion that SCORE has implemented. The revamped SCORE website also generates an average of over 2 million monthly unique viewers and delivered an amazing 3.6 million unique viewers and over 18 million page views during the four-day window of this year’s SCORE Baja 500 (June 2-5).
“SCORE International is extremely proud to be presenting next month’s Rosarito Beach 20th SCORE Desert Challenge, marking the first time SCORE has produced an event in this popular resort area,” said Jim Ryan, SCORE Director of Marketing and Sales. “The unique-format SCORE Desert Challenge features racing over three days on a course truly never used be SCORE at any time in its over 40-year history. This issue provides a more in-depth preview of the newest race in the SCORE World Desert Championship including a first look at the 32.7-mile loop that will be the race course.”
“The feature section includes an up-close and personal one-on-one with multi-time SCORE quad point champion Wayne Matlock, his transfer to the UTV class where he has already won three times and his wife Kristen Matlock who finished third in the other Pro UTV class at this year’s SCORE Baja 500. SCORE races have long served as technology and product durability testing for manufacturers and issue No. 8 of the 2016 SCORE Journal goes deep to discover the depth of suspension products providing insight on how these products were developed and the benefits that they provide.”
INSIDE VOL. 2, NO. 8
Vol. 2, No. 8 of the SCORE Journal is again filled with several interesting must-read features and news items. A major SCORE spotlight will shine brightly on the UTV world with a general roundup including 2017 Yamaha, Polaris, Can-Am and Arctic Cat racing models. There is also a special SCORE UTV buyer’s guide exploring bolt-on power and performance products for UTVs.
Another key feature celebrates the selection of SCORE racers Larry Ragland and Bud Feldkamp, team owner Tracy Valenta and world-renown desert photographer Jim Ober into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame.
In the SCORE News update section there is info on Honda’s introduction of its new long-range motorcycle and a look at the development in Baja California, Mexico of the Baja Off-Road Motorsports Museum by the Baja California Secretary of Tourism.
