SHITS, GIGGLES & GLORIFICATION 

The Insiders Story of THE DEATH RACE 2017!   

*Shits; A spectator linked to a local racing team was struck and killed. All of the people killed in these races are part of the teams competing. 

They are killing each other and BFGoodrich and SCORE give extra points for death incidents!


The Spectator KILLED at Laguna Del Diablo; Cristina Eugenia Gil Bermúdez, 31; Struck & Run-Over! Cristina was part of the pit crew for the Class 5-1600, #563 driver of record: Marco Gomez from San Diego.

Current reports say the #271 team, that struck and killed the spectator, left their race rig on the dry lake and the driving team split before the police got to the death scene, they crossed back into the USA soon after the death incident...

The #271 race rig was reportedly impounded and resides in a police yard in San Felipe... 

*Giggles; A multi-million dollar team based on the east coast (RPM Racing) cheated and stole this years Baja 1000.  

The team willfully turned off their required rear facing lights. Amber and brake lights. Meant mostly for safety purposes, their move was meant to make it uncompetitive and unsafe to overtake their race truck.


Everybody in the industry knows the rpm racing team and the girls from Tennessee are cheating, enjoy the Karma.


*The Glorification; this SCORE 50th anniversary of the 'Mil' during the 2016 season had the 'dust2glory' film crew 'documenting' the racing. SCORE's narcissistic sickness, on film. 

Just to start our wiping the floor with this piss-poor film, ***"Legendary" Cassie Currie?
***No mention of the child ran-over during the 2016 Baja 500?

Original Event Coverage

Spectator Run-Over and Killed at Laguna Del Diablo; INVESTIGATING NOW>>>

*At this years Baja 1000 a spectator was struck and killed at Laguna Del Diablo; Cristina Eugenia Gil Bermúdez was 31. 

The incident occurred at Race Mile 151 at apprx. 5 PM local time. The victim was struck by the number 271 Trophy Truck of Carey Chrisman. The 31-year old victim was believed to be part of the number 563 team of Marco Gomez. 

The 'Mexican Federales' (Mexican Federal Highway Police) were on the scene of the crash and even after four hours of investigating, they were just getting to the insurance info at 10 PM local time!

Hours after the Trophy Truck accident occurred, two vehicles collided causing one of them to roll over, just 100 feet away from where the original accident happened. And in the aftermath of those two incidents, a fan had a seizure on site. From local knowledge the area around RM 151 is flat lake bed that runs in front of El Chinero Mountain. 


SCORE FIRST MOTO ACROSS THE LINE CRASHES INTO THE FINISH LINE CROWD SENDING SPECTATORS TO THE HOSPITAL WITH BROKEN BONES, THEN SCORE TAKES THE WIN AWAY FROM THE 1x

**Moto Class Francisco Arredondo and his talented team claimed their third straight victory of the season when apparent winner 1x Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp. 

Ian Young was the rider for the last 200 miles of the race. The adjusted finishing time for the 1x team was 21:26:47. Arredondo, 40, a veteran international rally racer, shared riding responsibilities for this race with Shane Esposito, 43, Temecula, Calif./Justin Morgan, 27, El Cajon, Calif./Max Eddy Jr, 33, Barstow, Calif./Ty Davis, Oak Hills, Calif. 

The Arredondo team finished the gritty challenge in 21 hours, seven minutes, 17 seconds while averaging 54.157 mph. Beginning the race from the first position, they crossed the line at approximately 9:17 p.m. PT Thursday night.

For Ox Motorsports, SCORE Race officials assessed a 30-minute penalty which moved the No. 1x to second place with an adjusted total time 21:26:47.


With the overall motorcycle victory, Honda extended their race-record total to 27 courtesy of the No. 45x team. 


'AutoWeek' claims 0x Motorsports cheated AND pulled the Major Boner:
  

"At the finish it was the motorcycle team of Colton Udall, Mark Samuels, Ian Young and Justin Jones who crossed the line first, having shared riding duties on their No. 1x Ox Motorsports Honda CRF450X bike. But the apparent winners were penalized after what looked like a glitch on the GPS software that showed straight lines where the course curved over the terrain. Some of the straight lines appeared to go over the water. So something was wrong. 

Baja 1000 map
AutoWeek: "This is the problem with GPS trackers, maybe. The gold line is the route the tracker claims motorcycle rider Samuels and company took, impossible unless they had a water bike. The red line is the course route."SCORE-International data

The Ox Motorpsorts team was assessed a 30-minute penalty, which moved it from first place to second. As of now SCORE has said, “…apparent winner (Mark) Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp.”

A report in a Spanish-language Mexican media outlet said Ian Young, who rode the final 200-mile leg of the race for the team, did a wheelie across the finish line ramp. That could be considered race-winner exhuberence, couldn't it? But we weren't there so we don't have the full story and SCORE has not responded to our request for more information about it."

BRN Comment: So, so Funnay!!! The regular press reporting on Baja Racing...and waiting for SCORE to reply??? WAFJ

In the meantime, the official motorcycle winners are the No. 45x Bremen-Arredondo-Haines Racing Honda CRF450x, whose official finishing time was 21:07:17. Francisco Arredondo, from Guatemala, paced the team with co-riders Shane Esposito, Justin Morgan Max Eddy Jr. and Ty Davis, all of Southern California."

***The father/son team of Juan C. Lopez and Carlos “Apdaly” Lopez from Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, took top honors in the 50th running of Baja Mexico’s  desert race. 

The team’s fluorescent-orange RPM-sponsored Chevy Trophy Truck covered the 1134.40-mile course in 19 hours 53 minutes and 36 seconds. The Lopez family team had finished second for the last two years behind Rob MacCachren, who won the race each of the last three years. This year MacCachren was in contention for the lead when his engine blew, 550 miles into the race event. Had he won, he would have been the first driver to win in four consecutive years.

The Lopezes crossed the line more than an hour ahead of second-place Trophy Truck finishers Cameron Steele and Pat Dean in a Ford F-150. 11 minutes behind the Steele/Dean truck came the McMillin Racing Ford of Dan McMillin and Gary Weyhrich in third place.

'CLEAN DIESEL'; Scott Evans, November 2008: "Following the wildly successful introduction of the Jetta TDI diesel sedan into the U.S. market, Volkswagen is preparing to follow-up with the Touareg TDI. The Touareg TDI shares its engine with the previously announced Audi Q7 diesel, which we had a chance to drive as part of Audi's "Mileage Marathon" event.
 
Paragraphimage
The Touareg TDI is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged diesel V-6 producing 221 hp. and 406 lb-ft of torque. That mountain of torque is available from 1,750 RPM and hustles the Touareg to 60 mph in 8.5 seconds on its way to an electronically-limited top speed of 130 mph. The all-wheel-drive Touareg boasts strong fuel economy numbers; 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, according to Volkswagen. For comparison, we achieved an average of 25.9 mpg in the Audi Q7, though other drivers on the Mileage Marthon returned nearly 30 mpg. Helping the Touareg achieve those numbers is a six-speed automatic transmission.
 
Paragraphimage
Volkswagen says that the V-6 in the Touareg TDI is the one of the cleanest and most efficient six-cylinder engines in the world. The company boasts that the Touareg has met both BIN5 and ULEV II emissions standards and is 50-state legal. To achieve those certifications, Volkswagen has fitted the Touareg with a multi-stage emissions system. Starting in the combustion chambers, Volkswagen has developed the first in-chamber sensors that monitor pressure conditions in every cylinder to maximize efficiency. Volkswagen has also lowered the combustion chamber temperatures so that fewer raw emissions are created, and those that still are get picked-up in part by an exhaust gas recirculation system. Those that make it past the recirculation system are picked up either by the oxidation catalytic converter, the particulate filter, or the Selective Catalytic Reduction catalytic converter. In the SCR catalytic converter, a urea-based solution called AdBlue is injected into the exhaust flow that turns NOx into Nitrogen and water.

Volkswagen claims this system reduces NOx emissions by up to 90%. The AdBlue solution is stored in a 4.2 gallon tank under the spare tire and the Touareg only burns 0.26 gallons of the solution every 1,000 miles, meaning the solution only needs to be replenished after about 16,000 miles. Volkswagen says that the solution is inexpensive and can be added by the dealership or by the owner relatively easily.
Paragraphimage
Also present at Volkswagen's display was its entry into this year's Baja 1000 race, which begins tomorrow. The SCORE truck features 12-cylinder 5.5L TDI diesel engine that produces 550 hp. Volkswagen is hoping to repeat the success the Touareg had at Baja last year. Driving this year's race will be driver Mark Millen and Co-Driver Ryan Arciero."

"Back in the days when I worked at National Speed Sport News, Chris Economaki told me that in the 1940s and ‘50s, it was a given that there would be at least one fatality every week at a racetrack somewhere in America. It’s mind-boggling to think that drivers regularly getting killed was the norm".

Now at SCORE-International, one person dies at EVERY race event!*
(*Current average [racer & spectator deaths] under current SCORE-International owner, Roger Norman)

In September, the Editor Opined...

Lets look honestly at Roger's failed record as a race organizing sanction. (Click the Links)

*The Death of Kurt Caselli

*The felony mishandling of race emergency medical responses and tracking responsibilities.

*A child drove over and killed at the last Baja 500. No SCORE acceptance of responsibility. Though, the course was not marked correctly. The racer in question had no business behind the wheel. Roger Norman personally accepted the race conditions, on site, as acceptable for his "race sanction".


*The government of Baja Sur called him a 'LIAR', in the public press. A record low for SCORE.

*Roger's Baja Sur 500, not on the schedule for 2017 and written off for good by the government because Norman lied about the race failure.

*Former SCORE owner Sal Fish has now disavowed any support for Roger Norman.

*Roger's disrespecting Imperial Valley and Mexicali Valley residents by treating them as slaves.

*The Mango Racing Death Fiasco. Gary Magness team lost one of their favorite team members in a horrible incident at the Baja 1000. None of the racers wanted to admit at the time, SCORE failed to support the impacted racing community after one racer went to jail and Roger failed to handle the situation in a timely manner. Charges of 'bail money theft' were also leveled against the race sanction.

*Roger Norman's continued, failed, copying of other peoples work. The The USA 500/Reno races, the Rosarito race, the CABO race and the Imperial Valley event. He tried buying the MINT race.  

*How many people, working for Roger, are now gone with continued, multiplied inferior performance in their respective positions, the norm for the race sanction?

So, this is the 'NEW SCORE?'
