Presenting his Dakar Challenge 2013 trophy and award package during the awarding ceremony last Sunday for the Eldorado HDRA Reno 500 was Xavier Gavory, the Head of the Competition Department of the Dakar Rally.
SCORE President Roger Norman, who owns both SCORE and the High Desert Racing Ass’n, negotiated the deal that will earn the prize package for the declared car/truck racer from the two major desert races in the U.S. and Mexico who will receive a free entry by way of the Dakar Challenge 2013 into the 2014 Dakar Rally to be in Argentina on January 5-18.
The Dakar Challenge was free to enter for any four wheel competitor entered in Trophy Truck, Class 1, Class 10 or Class 7200.
“The Dakar Challenge was initiated to help provide a wonderful new opportunity for talented up-and-coming SCORE and HDRA racers the possibility of competing in one of the most popular motorsports events in the world,” said Norman, a former champion racer who is in his first season as owner of the iconic SCORE Int’l, producers of the world’s foremost desert racing series. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the racers as well as for SCORE and HDRA.”
