Both races were held in Baja California, Mexico–the SCORE Desert Challenge in Rosarito and the iconic SCORE Baja 1000 in Ensenada.
These broadcasts will re-air twice each on the CBS Sports Network on Saturday and Sunday as kind of an after-party for the annual SCORE Awards Night to celebrate the 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship which is being held Saturday evening at the SCORE Tech facility in El Cajon, Calif., just east of San Diego.
