Dickerson Wows With Laughlin Desert Leap

LAUGHLIN, Nev. – Jeff Dickerson became the second-straight unlimited Class 1 driver to triumph in the SCORE Laughlin Leap competition Friday, a lead up to this weekend’s season-opening 17th annual SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge.

The former SCORE season class point champ impressed the standing-room-only crowd of more than 5,000 with his performance, powering his No. 117 AlumiCraft open-wheel desert car off the 6-foot dirt jump for a distance of 125 feet, 6 inches for his first overall win in the competition and his first in the division.

Robby Gordon came in second overall with his triumph in the SCORE Trophy-Truck division for high-tech, 850-horsepower unlimited production trucks. Driving his own No. 77 Team Gordon Chevy CK1500 Score Trophy-Truck, Gordon made a leap of 125 feet, just 6 feet short of Dickerson’s mark.

In the limited CC open-wheel class, Mario Gastelum outdistanced Cody Robinson with a 79-foot jump to Gastelum’s 75-foot showing. Jonathon Libby, in a Ford Ranger, topped the Production mini-trucks division with a leap of 107 feet, 6 inches, while Francisco Villagomez won in the Restricted Cars class, posting a 94-foot-6-inch jump in his Pabloff-VW SCORE Lite car.
