Cameron Steele Draws Pole Positions in Two Classes for Primm 300

Cameron Steele gets pole position, the only way possible, hand chosen by SCORE, for not one, but two pole positions. C'mon, get real! CLICK HERE

From SCORE & Dominic Clark,
""Good fortune smiled down on veteran racer and TV sportscaster Cameron Steele, who drew the first starting position in both the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck and the SCORE Lite divisions in the computerized drawing for starting positions for next month’s 12th Annual SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 desert race. Round 5 of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series will be held Sept. 7-9 in Primm, Nev.
In a sport where there is no qualifying or open pre-running (in the U.S.), the drawing for start positions has added significance and the No. 16 Desert Assassins Chevy Silverado SCORE Trophy-Truck and No. 1201 VW-powered Desert Assassins open-wheel desert race car were selected randomly in Wednesday’s computerized drawing at the SCORE Int’l headquarters in Los Angeles.

“Wow, this is so cool that I am almost speechless which is something I seldom am”, said Steele, 38 of San Clemente, Calif., a second generation desert racer who is a pit reporter for telecasts of the Champ Car World Series and just finished announcing the motorcycle events in the X Games for ESPN. “This is a great opportunity for me in both classes. I am very comfortable in SCORE Lite and being able to run that class in the morning group will definitely give me a bit of an edge to then go out in the afternoon and lead the SCORE Trophy-Trucks into the desert. We have a new SCORE Trophy-Truck and it is very capable of running with the big dogs as long as I don’t have any pilot errors.”

With one race win this season, Steele is leading the SCORE Lite point standings, but he has struggled in SCORE Trophy-Truck where he is currently 22nd in points.""
