But never before this year has one bel held in Rosarito Beach.
ENSENADA, Mexico — To further enhance SCORE International’s presence in the market and to grow exposure for SCORE teams and sponsors, SCORE International has committed to be the presenting sponsor of the upcoming 2nd annual International Off-Road & UTV Expo. The rapidly expanding public event will be held Sept. 23-25 at WestWorld, the renown multi-use facility in Scottsdale, Ariz.
“This is obviously a very busy time of year for us preparing for our final two races of the 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship as well as our significant presence at two other prominent public trade shows, but this opportunity was one we couldn’t pass up,” commented Jim Ryan, SCORE Director of Sales and Marketing. “The Arizona market is a core base for SCORE teams, supporting businesses and a great fan base to be directly involved as we advance toward the SCORE Baja 1000 50th anniversary in November 2017. We will have an exciting display at the International Off-Road & UTV Expo this year and look forward to working with the event to expand and grow even larger than it was in its initial year.”
