Round 5 of 2007 SCORE Desert Series
Sportscaster Cameron Steele draws pole positions in two Classes for next month’s 12th SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300

SCORE’s 34th season continues Sept. 7-9 with over 175 entries expected In 18 Pro & 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks

LOS ANGELES—Good fortune smiled down on veteran racer and TV sportscaster Cameron Steele, who drew the first starting position in both the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck and the SCORE Lite divisions in the computerized drawing for starting positions for next month’s 12th Annual SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 desert race. Round 5 of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series will be held Sept. 7-9 in Primm, Nev.

In a sport where there is no qualifying or open pre-running (in the U.S.), the drawing for start positions has added significance and the No. 16 Desert Assassins Chevy Silverado SCORE Trophy-Truck and No. 1201 VW-powered Desert Assassins open-wheel desert race car were selected randomly in Wednesday’s computerized drawing at the SCORE Int’l headquarters in Los Angeles. Celebrating its 34th season this year as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, the SCORE Desert Series will be returning to Southern Nevada for the last of its three annual races in the U.S.

The 12th Annual SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 will feature 18 Pro and 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks in Primm, located 45 miles south of Las Vegas at the California border. This year’s starting grid is expected to reach over 175 vehicles. A total of 145 vehicles entered in time for the start draw and late entries will be accepted up until race morning.

For the sixth consecutive year, the race will be split into two groups with the open wheel and VW baja bug classes starting at 6 a.m. The truck classes, including the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division along with the unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars, will start at 1 p.m. One vehicle will start every 30 seconds in the elapsed-time race. Final negotiations are underway to identify the start/finish line area as SCORE with the help of Terrible Herbst Inc., the new owners of the Primm Valley Resorts, is attempting to bring the main pits and start/finish area back to directly behind Buffalo Bills Resort. A total of 26 SCORE Trophy-Trucks, were entered in time for the start draw, and the high-tech, 800-horsepower unlimited production trucks will lead the afternoon group into the Southern Nevada desert. The first vehicle to leave the start line in the morning portion of the event will be Class 10 husband and wife racers Adam and Bekki Wik of Las Vegas, in a Honda-powered Jimco open-wheel desert race car. Seven of last year’s 17 class winners have entered so far, including three of last year’s top five overall finishers.

“Wow, this is so cool that I am almost speechless which is something I seldom am”, said Steele, 38 of San Clemente, Calif., a second generation desert racer who is a pit reporter for telecasts of the Champ Car World Series and just finished announcing the motorcycle events in the X Games for ESPN. “This is a great opportunity for me in both classes. I am very comfortable in SCORE Lite and being able to run that class in the morning group will definitely give me a bit of an edge to then go out in the afternoon and lead the SCORE Trophy-Trucks into the desert. We have a new SCORE Trophy-Truck and it is very capable of running with the big dogs as long as I don’t have any pilot errors.” With one race win this season, Steele is leading the SCORE Lite point standings, but he has struggled in SCORE Trophy-Truck where he is currently 22nd in points.

Starting behind the 26 SCORE Trophy-Trucks will be the unlimited Class 1 for open-wheel desert race cars. In the first 11 years of the SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300, SCORE Trophy-Trucks have seven Overall race wins while Class 1 has four.

Drawing the first starting spot in Class 1 was Todd Cuffaro. Coronado, Calif., in a Chevy-powered Porter open-wheel desert race car. Eric Solorzano, Tijuana, Mexico, and George Seeley, Glendale, Calif., have the most class wins in the SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300. Solorzano has won Class 11 in seven of the first 11 years of this race in a VW Sedan while Seeley has six victories in Class 5 in his unlimited VW Baja Bug. Bob Shepard, Phoenix, returns as the defending overall and SCORE Trophy-Truck winner in the No. 82 Arciero-Miller Racing Chevy CK1500 but he has a new racing partner this year in Ryan Arciero, Foothill Ranch, Calif., who is actually the team’s driver of record this year.

Larry Roeseler, Hesperia, Calif., and Las Vegas’ Troy Herbst, who finished second overall last year (4 minutes, 15 seconds behind Shepard) and won Class 1 last year return in the No. 100 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Smithbuilt-Ford. Behind Class 1 (32 entries), the classes with the most entries in time for the drawing were: SCORE Trophy-Truck (26), Class 1-2/1600 (23), SCORE Lite (15) and Class 10 (11).

The highly-competitive SCORE Desert Series has 21 racers separated by just 54 points in the Overall standings after the 13th SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge, 21st Tecate SCORE Baja 250. 39th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and the SCORE Las Vegas Terrible’s Cup III desert races. Three of the four races had race-record starting grids, topped by amazing SCORE-record 492 cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs taking the green flag in June’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500 in Ensenada. Among the other racers drawing first starting positions for this race is Las Vegas’ Bryan Freeman, who will lead Class 1-2/1600 in a 1600cc Fraley-VW. Pre-race festivities on Friday, Sept. 7, for the SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300, including tech and contingency and the SCORE Manufacturer’s Midway, will be held from Noon to 6 p.m. behind Buffalo Bill’s Resort. The post-race awards celebration will be held at the Star of the Desert Arena on Sunday (Sept. 9).
