The city of El Centro, California is set to host the Rigid Industries SCORE Imperial Valley 250. The race is the fourth in the 2015 SCORE World Desert Championship and will take place September 24th thru the 27th. Presented by the City of El Centro, the race will be held near Plaster City partially on 41,000 dedicated acres in an off-highway vehicle use area under the jurisdiction of the El Centro field office of the Bureau of Land Management. The area for the race is also located immediately west of the Naval Air Facility El Centro and is approximately 17 miles west of El Centro off of Interstate 8 (I-8). "Without the amazing assistance from the City of El Centro, the area business community as well as the dedicated SCORE Imperial Valley 250 race committee of over 50 community leaders, SCORE would not be holding this event, simple as that," commented Roger Norman, CEO/President of SCORE International. "In this sport, there are few major desert races held in OHV areas primarily because of safety concerns. El Centro and the SCORE Race Committee with invaluable assistance from the Imperial Valley sheriff and police departments have once again collectively developed an event plan that is compatible with the directives of the BLM. We know that the economic impact of the Rigid Industries SCORE Imperial Valley 250 for the area compares favorably with the most successful events in the history of the area." "We want to especially recognize the dream and vision of former SCORE Trophy Truck racer and Terrible's Cup champion Marty Coyne (El Centro businessman)" adds Norman. "Marty has also provided the event the use of his complex in the heart of the race course for our start/finish line area." Last year's overall race winner was San Diego's Andy McMillin who was a pinch- hitter for driver of record Rob MacCachren of Las Vegas in the No. 11 Rockstar Energy MacCachren Motorsports Ford F-150. A third-generation desert racer, McMillin, a multi-time SCORE race winner, covered last year's course in four hours, 11 minutes and two seconds, averaging 59.59 miles per hour.
