SCORE-Logo-12-20-11SAN DIEGO—With pre-running on the official race course beginning Wednesday, SCORE officials will unveil the course map for the upcoming 45th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 during Tuesday’s airing of Roger Norman’s Dirt LiveHD weekly Internet broadcast Tuesday at 7 p.m. Pacific Time. Airing in High Definition on www.score-international.com, the show will air from its broadcast home at the SCORE International tech shop in San Diego.

Presenting a detailed description presentation of the rugged race course of just over 500 miles will be SCORE Race Director Jose Grijalva who has just returned from a course-marking expedition with SCORE President Roger Norman.

Also featured on the show will be youthful SCORE Trophy Truck racer Justin Davis along with award-winning Mexican journalist Gabriel Garcia, the motorsports editor of the El Vigia newspaper in Ensenada, Mexico.

Davis, just 19 of Chino Hills, Calif., is a rookie in SCORE Trophy Truck, the marquee racing division in the entire sport for high-tech, 850-horsepower unlimited production trucks where he drives the No. 85 Green Army Motorsports Ford F-150. Davis, who rapidly ascended to the featured racing class after winning SCORE season point championships in SCORE Lites (2010) and the unlimited Class 1 (2011), is fresh from winning the overall title at the recent King Shocks HDRA 250 in Ridgecrest, Calif.

LOS ANGELES — After more than a decade of registering entries, assisting media operations and recording times of speeding vehicles as a SCORE race official, Texas wife/mother/desert racer Monica Greenhill finds herself not only third in the 2012 SCORE Desert Series points standings in the unlimited Class 1 but she will also be the first female driver of record to start first in the high-powered division for unlimited open-wheel desert race cars in next month’s 45th anniversary of the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

Following in the tracks of such notable SCORE female desert racing stars as Judy Smith, Bekki Freeman-Wik, Anna Cody and Heidi Steele, Greenhill will take the green flag as the first vehicle in Class 1 in the No. 101 Greenhill Motorsports Chevy-powered Jimco race car. Class 1 will leave the start line immediately after the SCORE Trophy Truck division to begin the four-wheel vehicle start in the elapsed-time race where one vehicle starts every 30 seconds.
