"NO BIKES!" Roger Norman Wanted FIA Racing Sanction In Mexico, with "No Motorcycles", in 2010. Expert witness Tells THE COMPLETE OUTRAGE NOW!

Dateline Ensenada, Baja Mexico; June 30.

The Full, Unadulterated Story Behind Roger Norman and his control of recent safety helicopter decisions and SCORE International's Moto Safety Collapse

UPDATE July 5: Now, we understand why Roger Norman no longer places a helicopter with the lead bikes in his "circus".

In 2010, Roger reached out to several people in desert racing, describing his interest to start a new racing sanction, with "No Bikes"

A race organization affiliated with FIA and not, BITD or SCORE.

He never wanted the bikes. Way before the purchase of SCORE was done, Norman was formulating desert off-road racing with the unlimiteds, only.

This information also explains Normans disdain for the sportsman classes. In one of his first TV productions, it said in the script, "Baja racing is really only a handful of racers", the Trophy Trucks. Maybe including Class 1's.

Since his ownership of SCORE, he has priced out everyone, except the unlimiteds.

The SCORE decision to eliminate the lead bike safety chopper at his first Baja 1000 is the glaring proof, that Roger Norman doesn't want all of the classes without cages.

His entry pricing structure is also eliminating sportsman from racing in SCORE. 

Roger Normans pricing also explains his attempt to control every media aspect of SCORE. The confidential expert witness also told more>>> 

It's not him saving money. It's not his ego saying he knows more than others on how to operate a desert off-road race. He just never wanted 'uncaged' competitors in his events. 

He also has no respect for smaller budget teams and sportsmen racers.

That's all!

It fully explains why, after the death of Kurt Caselli, numerous bike racer and team complaints, public and private and the recent Honda crash in the Baja additional chopper support has been dedicated to the lead bikes. Simple.

Roger Norman has also reflected his own beliefs on the unlimited team owners. Our confidential expert source, surmised, "Roger wants to be known as Gods gift to racing, he thinks every unlimited racer wants to blown up to "World" or 'Global', status".

Therefore, those unlimited teams should be willing to do all of their 'desert racing marketing' with his, SCORE. 

Rogers SCORE goal, racing sanction and 'media empire'. TV ads, online videos and social media. What was the FIRST thing Rogers SCORE accomplished, they set up their YouTube account!

Are all of the unlimiteds, megalomaniacs in need of media hype? Of course not. To the point, the safety decisions by the current SCORE organization are in need of serious, public review. 

We'll explain the video here...

OFF-ROAD LIVE!***June 29, 4PM



MONSTER Mike Reporting ON THE BEACH in San Diego CALI!

LIVE! Del Mar Fair Coverage HERE! 

MONSTER Mike Reporting ON THE BEACH in Del Mar

Where is the community heading? Trophy Golf Carts! You need proof?
Burt and Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner backdoors into off-road 'trophy golf carts'.
The Terracross Racing events being held at the Del Mar Fair were reviewed on June 25 & 26th.
Self described "professional race car driver, radio host, media personality, brand ambassador and motorsports announcer/emcee", Jimmy Beaver demonstrated his racing skills Thursday, by rolling his rig twice, during practice. 

ON THE BEACH, Del Mar Fairgrounds

The Terracross Racing Series events of this weekend are clearly best suited for pre-existing venues, with guaranteed crowds. 

The competition is fast and furious on this fury road of racing passion. Mad Max would be pleased! The racers are genuine and fun loving. The fan autograph session was open and interesting, with Jimmy Beaver dispensing driving advise to other racers. After flipping his rig, that is.  The racing gals had their acts together, with hero cards and smiles in copious amounts.

In a motorsports world of challenging sponsor budgets and many racers avoiding moto risks, the benefits of getting a race seat in this series is obvious. Terracross is a great racing platform to move to bigger race hot-lights.

The series has uniform factory manufactured safety systems and competition platforms. The racers are showing exciting side by side racing, in wheels the average consumer can jump into easily.

I spoke briefly with Ronnie Faisst, a cool racer, enjoying the competition in the Terracross Series and the action in Del Mar, California, today Friday, June 26. He talked about his great race experiences, X-Games and Free Style Moto chops. He underlined the racing here is fun, inexpensive and the venues are trick, with Charlotte North Carolina and Del Mar, California USA, gleaming in the motorsports spotlight.

Jason Ellis gagged on the racing, not making the finals. 

Jeremy 'Twitch' Stenberg, a very cool cat, today, Friday, June 26, made his way up to third place, midway in the finals. After the racing, Jeremy, family and friends strolled the San Diego County Fair with their first stop, the reggae booth "One World", good vibe mon, yea mon. He did have on his High top, spliff socks!

Be sure to listen to Mikes OFF-ROAD LIVE! AUDIO Reports for the 'Twitch' Jeremy Stenberg Interview, race results and more!

Red Bull Mint 400 Best in the Desert Bryce Menzies Polaris RZR NBC Sports National Broadcasting Company IRC International Racing Consultants


Mad Media Ignores Race & Safety Disaster at their MINT 400, continues!
Gary Newsome


Let's see how long Michelin will put up with the flatbiller antics of the "Great American Race".

We know Continental was willing to put up with all the asshat antics because of their SHIT tires. But, is the worldwide tire empire of MICHELIN willing to get its face smashed in with the "MINT 400 Safety Disaster CoverUp" wooden bat?! 

Major Off-Road racing insider sez, "the BLM has told him, one more mistake during these races and racing in the Nevada deserts will end forever!"

Tim Sanchez Dirt Exploits Ended after wasting BFGoodrichs funds

We get to bury these mega corporations, NOW! Like Michelin and Red Bull. Flatbillers Joey D and Mad Media, The Story, HERE

Reporting Began on June 25, 2015, "A Day That Will Live In Infamy!" 

 Fair Warning. Baja Racing News is embarking on territory outside of Mexico, inside the minds of those who think they're controlling the off-road community.

The 'Like-Friend'-Zillionaires living on the false belief of FaceBook. We've interviewed Michelin executives and one of our reporters was embedded in various desert race operations for the last fifteen years.
      Joey DiGiovanni, CEO of, why is it that all UTV Underground guys all weigh in at 300 pounds at 4 foot in height? This is the pro crew, associated with Mad Media taking over Baja, drunk and in "array". No wonder German Motorsports bailed out, just the start of the DISASTER.

Millionaire Bryce Menzies, Red Bull money recipient has "won" the MINT 400, on bad data

The 'community' continues to allow Brett Sloppy to enter desert races under false names. The very same people who last week started a 'new takeover of Baja', with Jackson Motorsports and their representation of BFGoodrich Tires.

This sport is devolving into a big, fat, 'my party is bigger than your party CF'. 

Mad Media can't keep up with their T-Shirt orders! WAFJ:


OFF-ROAD LIVE! is covering the story of the Red Bull Mad Media MINT 400 Tracking Units COVERUP, the BIGGEST desert off-road racing story, since the California 200 racing deaths!

Let's review! At last years Mint 400, Best In The Desert allowed numerous racers, out on the course, without trackers. Numerous teams were issued trackers that didn't work. There were racing incidents in the event, that were not covered by the sanctioners rules. Robby Gordon is quoted as saying, "No-one knows who REALLY won this race!"

Remember what the hack Jimmy Beaver said: "The entire first lap was madness. I saw more rollovers and broken cars than any race I have ever been in. In the past 3 years of racing the Mint I have to say that the dry lake beds have absolutely scared the **** out of me. 125 mph blind for a few miles, with very little for course markings, and power lines mixed in is not fun. I love this event, but I will say it is amazing someone hasn't been in a serious crash on the dry lakes yet. There could be a 20 car pileup and you would never know until you crashed in to the pile." Maybe that's why its named 'MAD Media'!

I'll be deep in the cotton candy of the Martelli Brothers and Joey D. I have my HazMat suit on and I've been sealed away from every known internet bacterium and virus. I'm ready!
The Cotton Candy of Mad Media, Delusion

When Frank DeAngelo invited, to become a part of the "enthusiast network" of theirs, we declined. So that we could write this story, in its entirety. No holds barred. BFGoodrich is expected to take over BITD tire sponsorships, next race season. This item was denied this morning, by Frank. Another, Steve Myersism.

On the instructions of 'some' in the desert racing community, they say, "don't talk to". Not because we get the story wrong, but because we get the story right.

Wait until to hear, THE REST OF THE STORY>>> EXCLUSIVE

Bright Midnight

Lots of readers thought when we mentioned OFF-ROAD LIVE! was bringing up the subject of 'Bright Midnight' we were talking about the middle of the moonlit night, in a remote part of the Baja desert. We are, but the subject is much more than comes into focus, at first glance.

Our teams personal experiences, traveling south of the border is a shared 'Frontier' experience. All the old-timey West Coast desert races started at Midnight!

After eleven years of desert racing historical research, writing and celebrating, the "Baja Crew" is looking forward to spending more time on the beach and missing the libraries and books of desert racing and adventurers past.

We'll be at Ensenada at Estero Beach, San Felipe at Rockodile, La Paz at Owl Beach and on the Golden sands of Cabo San Lucas just this month, reporting on the finish lines of the best Baja desert racing in the history of Mexico! The Ensenada To San Felipe classic, with RECORD Racing. The Coyote 300 in La Paz with Coyote Pits and the new CABO 1000 to Lands End on the Golden Sands of the Cape of the Land of Two Seas!

On the old Baja license plates, the text always included FRONTBC, or Frontier, Baja California. Designating the state of Baja California. The state in the north along the US border, thus the frontier. Norte.

The frontier people of Baja Mexico, overcame hardship by being thrifty and their gracious shared daily living. That's what brings racers from around the globe to this region and returns them, often. Sure, the landscape and passion of racing does too, but the people are the true treasure!

Bright midnight is the teams 'light-bulb' going off. It is the full moon night, but its also a celebration of the frontier spirit we all encounter in travel. It's the brilliant, beaming spirit of the people we all encounter in travel, the wise and knowing simple folk, who transform our life experience. Often, their spirit shows through at the darkest hour, when no hope is on the dark horizon.

The people of Baja Mexico who have overcome the frontier challenge of an incredible, hostile land. The peninsula, we all know. Our goal this month, on the show, will be to deliver shared experiences of the people of Mexico and the land of the lower peninsula, lower California, Baja.

Much of the BAJA-OFF-ROAD experience is how and why you get to your destination. Our team is agreed, however, there must be a destination. Often, its the beach. 

OFF-ROAD LIVE! will be including more coastal experiences, the surf culture, in our reporting. We look forward to you joining us on our journey, our Safaris, online every Monday at 4 PM.

Scam Steele Dropped by MONSTER Energy! Recent race event non-participation gives up Desert Assassins truth, Joe Parsons sez Gyped!?

UPDATE! June 27, 2015

MONSTER Energy has allowed Cameron to pull out of several Roger Normans SCORE events. For clarification, Scam is skeered of racing anymore.

He's rolled so many times and now his wife, another former 'racer', BBBBBWWWWWAAAAA  has baby jobers, its time for the long walk of shame.

Sorry for the alarm, Get Well Cameron!

First Story posted June 17, 2015

Cameron Steele, known by everyone in desert racing as "Scam", has been dropped by their title sponsor, Monster Energy.

First Reported, June 17, 2015

When asked about the end of sponsorships to the Desert Assassins, known as the "Asses", Joe Parsons said, the energy company was "Gyped!?"

Monster has further acted to end other support for a number of desert racing events. One spokesman for the holding company of Monster said, "when we announced we were taking over Baja and were moving forward to support the sport, we had no idea what a pile of shit the industry was".

One example of non-performance of the asses, CLICK HERE is this roll-over at the MINT 400 this year. Cameron Steele has rolled his truck so many times now, he is reportedly undergoing numerous medical reviews after the countless accidents.

The Desert Asses, who Scam leads, has not shown up for the last two SCORE International events, for the record, sources have been telling us Monster is following other named sponsors, out the door of sponsoring, these racers and these race events.
