SCORE MEDIA CONTACT: Dominic Clark,   August 24, 2023   ‘Celebrating 50 Years of SCORE Desert Racing Excellence’ SCORE announces industry leader K&N Engineering Major sponsor partnership for final 2023 SCORE races   ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico – ‘Celebrating 50 Years of SCORE Desert Racing Excellence’ this year, SCORE International announced today a major new sponsor partnership with global industry leader K&N Engineering for the final two races of the 2023 SCORE World Desert Championship, one as title sponsor and the finale as presenting sponsor.   K&N Engineering will debut as the title sponsor at the upcoming K&N 4th SCORE Baja 400, presented by VP Racing Fuels.  The year concludes with the iconic BFGoodrich Tires 56th SCORE Baja 1000, presented by K&N, in mid-November.   SCORE WELCOME “K&N Engineering is a pillar in the foundation of off-road performance products and SCORE is honored to have this legendary company as part of our fabulous family of sponsor partners,” praised Jim Ryan, SCORE Vice-President of Marketing and Sales. “K&N is a global leader in the industry and its presence and product lines will escalate SCORE’s reach and impact even further, especially with its unparalleled marketing presence.” “This partnership will also elevate the overall SCORE series and racer exposure for the 2023 and season and hopefully beyond. We are looking forward to a lasting and rewarding SCORE sponsor partnership with K&N Engineering.”   K&N REMARKS   “We are proud to rejoin the SCORE family, get back to our off-road racing roots, and bring these two powerhouse brands together,” said Craig Scanlon, K&N Engineering’s Chief Executive Officer.  “For K&N, this is more than just a sponsorship of SCORE, but a commitment of support to the entire off-road community of racers, fans, and enthusiasts.”     K&N ENGINEERING For over 50 years, K&N has been an industry-leader in automotive filtration and technology—offering products to increase performance, protection, and longevity in thousands of vehicle applications for consumers worldwide.      In the early 1960s, two motorcycle racers, Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald (K&N), developed a ground-breaking new idea for an air filter—one that could perform under the demands of dusty, dirty off-road environments. After numerous experiments, they discovered that an oiled cotton design allowed the filter to not only capture contaminants very efficiently, but also allowed it to be washed and reused, and the original K&N High-Flow Air Filter was born. Six decades later, K&N is still innovating, and offers the industry’s best intakes, filters, exhausts and more for performance enthusiasts looking for ultimate performance from their off-road trucks, powersports vehicles, and daily-driven commuter vehicles.   For more info, visit   SCOREscope 2023 GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY SCHEDULE Here are the dates for the remaining two races in the four-race 2023 SCORE World Desert Championship Golden Anniversary season, ‘Celebrating 50 Years of SCORE Desert Racing Excellence’, which are being held totally in Baja California, Mexico for the eighth consecutive year:
