Mike Julson and Jimco hardly need an introduction having competed in countless races over the past 30 years and being the most prolific and well known chassis builder of all time. Mike says about this historic partnership: “This is a huge step for both of us. Number one to showcase Jimco’s products by racing them and number to two to have some good clean family fun in introducing the next generation of our families into off-road racing”

Mark Peterson has been active in the off-road racing for the last three years. Mark brings his considerable driving skills learned first on Motorcycles starting at age 12 in the local deserts of San Diego and Imperial Counties.

“I am extremely excited about teaming with Mike Julson and being able to compete in the longer races with a racer of his caliber. I think that teamed together we will bring an element of excitement never before seen in the world of SCORE racing! I am even more excited about introducing our children to the world of off-road racing and watching them develop there skills.”
