RENO, Nev., USA — Led by undefeated racers in veteran Larry Connor is SCORE Trophy Truck and in stunning young gun Chad Broughton in Class 3000, a total of 22 racers with 35 combined class wins in 2015 are part of the field for this Saturday’s internationally-televised Rigid Industries SCORE Imperial Valley 250, presented by the City of El Centro.
Returning to SoCal for the third time in two years, Round 4 of the five-race 2015 SCORE World Desert Championship will be held just west of El Centro, Calif. and approximately 100 miles east of San Diego. Pro and Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads will all be racing in the event. Nearly 100 entries have come from 15 U.S. States along with Mexico, Austria, Germany and Italy.
As the only two racers who have won all three SCORE races this season in their respective classes, Connor, 65, of Miamisburg, Ohio, races in Trophy Truck Spec for unlimited trucks with stock, sealed V-8 engines while Broughton, 20 of Scotts Valley, Calif., is unbeaten in Class 3000 for unlimited mini-trucks with spec Ecotec engines. The daring duo will be favored to capture their fourth consecutive 2015 class wins, this time in a three-lap race over a grueling desert course of approximately 96.2-miles for a total race distance of approximately 288.6 miles.
