11th SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge Opens as 229 Vehicles Compete in 18 Classes
SECOND DAY RACE RECAPS - Sunday, January 16, 2005

(January 16, 2005) -- NOTE – Racers divided into seven different groups, by individual class, to race two, three or four laps over an 11-mile desert course. The competition starts and finishes with a stadium-style course in front of grandstand seating. Combined with the hillside viewing and the event VIP tent, more than 15,000 spectators were on hand for the second of two days of racing (according to Bureau of Land Management estimates). Racers had one-hour five-minute (65 minutes) to one-hour, 20-minute (80 minutes) time limits from the time each starts to complete the required laps each day to be an official finisher for that day. The event finishing order, by class, was based on the combined two-day elapsed time of each racer. Sunday’s start order was based on Saturday’s order of finish, except for SCORE-Trophy Truck, Class 1-2/1600, Class 5-1600, Class 10, SCORE Lite and Pro Truck. All classes with 10 or more finishers drew for top 10 starting positions Sunday.
