SCORE NEWS 2015 DAKAR/SCORE CHALLENGE ANNOUNCED The 2015 Dakar/SCORE Challenge allows SCORE team members the opportunity at winning free registration into the 2016 Dakar race that takes place in South America, January 2016. This year, the Dakar/SCORE "Dakar Challenge" will take place during the 47th Bud Light SCORE Baja 500, June 4th to the 7th 2015. There's no fee for a driving crew consisting of a pilot and co-pilot, to enter the Dakar Challenge during open registration. Participants are required to complete the 47th Bud Light SCORE Baja 500. "The Dakar Challenge was initiated to help provide a wonderful new opportunity for talented up-and-coming SCORE racers to have the possibility of competing in one of the most popular motorsports events in the world," said Roger Norman, SCORE CEO and President. Only one crew will receive free participation (sports dues for the driver, co-driver, and race vehicle) in the A.S.O. Dakar 2016, as well as return sea transport, limited catering, GPS tracking and more. To be eligible for the Dakar/ SCORE Dakar Challenge, the crew entering must hold a driving license covering them for the category they want to enter. Entrants must also have never taken part in the Dakar. None of the crew members have never been a part of the seeded drivers listed by the FIA, or have never been a part of the ASO Elite list. Past winners of the Dakar Challenge are not eligible.
