The UT San Diego has Bill Center asspuffing this piece: 

For the first time in nearly four decades, off-road racing’s most recognized sanctioning organization is under new management. Part-time San Diegan and veteran off-road racer Roger Norman has purchased SCORE from 73-year-old Sal Fish. The purchase of SCORE comes less than two years after Norman restarted the High Desert Racing Association. “We will be keeping the series and the controlling companies separate, although there will be a combined world championship based on points acquired in the two series,” said Norman. SCORE will continue to concentrate on races in Mexico, including the premier event of the genre – the Baja 1000 in November. The Nevada-based HDRA will hold four races next year, giving Norman seven races total. Norman’s goal is to raise the professionalism of off-road racing and one of his tools will be the expansion of a television package he put together for the HDRA series, which had four, one-hour programs on the Fox Sports Network last season. “We’re planning on eight telecasts next year with the finale being a one-hour wrap-up of the combined SCORE-HDRA season,” said Norman. “We’re going to reach more than 100 million homes next year and some of our telecasts will air multiple times. “Through television, we’re going to reach sponsors and racers, plus sponsors of racers. The idea is to expand the footprint of what we believe will the best in off-road racing.” Although off-road racing is primarily a sport of the Pacific Southwest deserts, it is one of the more fractionalized forms of motorsports. In addition to SCORE and the HDRA, there more than a half dozen other sanctioning bodies in the sport, including the Best In The Desert Series (featuring the annual Las Vegas-to-Reno race) and two closed-course series – with Robby Gordon entering that faction next year with a circuit that will hold two races at Qualcomm Stadium. Norman uses the word “professionalism” to describe his overall plan for SCORE and HDRA. “We want to grow the sport while making it safer,” he said. “We want to raise the standards for course control, including checkpoints through race results. Once results are announced as official, they are going to be official. We won’t be changing the results of races days later. If we find out later that something outside the rules affected the outcome, we will deal with it like NASCAR does through sanctions and penalties.” Perhaps Norman’s most intriguing idea is the total separation of four-wheel vehicles from motorcycles and ATVs in SCORE races. Under the current rules, the four-wheel vehicles start an hour to two hours after the slowest motorcycles and ATVs – meaning the fastest and biggest of SCORE’s vehicles are bearing down on the smallest and slowest of motorcycles in the longer races. “I’d like to see the motorcycles race a day earlier and make it two distinct events,” said Norman, who once ran over a motorcyclist while racing his Trophy Truck. “Fortunately, that accident didn’t result in a fatality.” Norman thinks separating motorcycles and ATVs by a day from the four-wheel vehicles would make SCORE races both safer and more popular with motorcycle racers. “It would also reduce the number of chase vehicles on the course at any one time,” he said. “And I think motorcycle riders would take a second look at racing in SCORE events. I’d love to sys 500 motorcycles out there for the Baja 1000.” One of Fish’s strengths as SCORE’s president was his close working relationship with Mexican officials. Norman believes that will not change with him in control. Norman’s extensive business operations include ownership of Wide Open Baja, a Baja off-road tour company operating out of a ranch near Ensenada. Cars used in Wide Open Baja also race as a class in SCORE and have attracted a number of celebrity racers to the event. Norman, 49, is the step-son of the late Bill Muncey, who is a legend in Unlimited Hydroplane racing and a member of the San Diego Hall of Fame. “Both my fathers were active in racing, which hooked me,” said Norman, who teamed with Larry Roeseler to win the Baja 1000 overall and Trophy Truck titles in 2008. He twice finished second in the SCORE points championship (2008 and 2009). “This does mean I’m retired as a driver,” said Norman, whose race team was headquartered in El Cajon. He last raced in the 2010 Baja 1000, where he finished third overall while driving solo. In addition to SCORE, HDRA and Baja Wide Open, Norman’s owns the Crystal Bay Casino in Lake Tahoe as well as other business and real estate holdings in Reno, Nev. He owns homes in Reno and San Diego.""

From the Sal Fish press release:

""After nearly four decades of leadership in the sport he loves so much and nurtured as a parent would a child, iconic race producer Sal Fish announces today that he has sold his SCORE International desert racing organization and the SCORE Desert Racing Series to Roger Norman effective immediately. Fish, the CEO/President of Los Angeles-based SCORE International has set the pace for the sport of desert racing since shortly after it’s forming by the late Mickey Thompson in 1973.

The legendary Fish felt the time was right to pass the torch to the next generation of race producers and says he is very comfortable in turning over the reins of the 39-year old SCORE International to Norman. The sale of SCORE to Norman is final with Fish having no direct involvement with future race promotions of the SCORE organization moving forward. He will however produce the 2012 SCORE Awards Night, honoring the racers of the world’s foremost desert racing series. The SCORE Awards Night will be held Saturday, Jan. 12 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Spa in Newport Beach, Calif., honoring the Champions of 2012 and ushering in a new and exciting era for SCORE International.

Easily the most recognizable figure in the sport of desert racing, Fish, 73, was philosophical as he announced his decision, saying, “Next to my wife Barbara, SCORE has been the love of my life, my passion and I have left my blood, sweat and tears in the desert of Baja California, Mexico, and in the USA in Arizona, California and Nevada. Over these many years, I’ve been knocked down, but always managed to get up to fight again and have enjoyed more than anyone could ever imagine these many years in the desert.
“I could go on and on, but I believe fervently that this is the time to pass the torch to the next generation and Roger Norman is a great racer with a big vision, superb business acumen and I know I leave my ‘baby’ in good hands. I know I’ll wake up tomorrow wondering what did I do, but I have had a phenomenal run and I wouldn’t change a thing. I have been able to grow this sport to the level it has reached and now Roger and his team will take it to the next level. I have no regrets and I leave knowing I have left a good legacy for the sport to continue to move forward in for the next 40 years.”

As a hotel/casino owner in northern Nevada, business developer and a champion racer himself, Norman was well aware of the daunting task at hand when he resurrected the High Desert Racing Association, (HDRA) in 2011. HDRA was highly regarded when it was active in the 1980s and early 1990s.

“For me it’s a dream come true,” said Norman regarding his acquisition of SCORE. “Sal Fish is the godfather of this sport and it is an honor to move forward with the incredible legacy he has left our sport with SCORE International. We have been talking about this for over a year, but I knew I had to learn all sides of the sport before I could be in a position to make a solid offer to Sal.”

“I have tremendous respect for the future of the sport and the leadership role of SCORE International.
Regarding his future plans, Norman commented, racers will be competing for three separate championships, HDRA, SCORE, and the World Championship. The World Championship will be comprised of three HDRA races in America and three SCORE races in Baja. The World Championship is the culmination of six of the seven races of the HDRA and SCORE race series with the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 (Nov. 17-20, 2013) as the deciding factor with 2x points. The first race is the South Point Vegas 250, January 12, 2013, in Jean, NV.

“Races will be nationally televised in the U.S. and we will provide greater detail of our plans over the next two weeks. The vision of a world championship will be monumental for our sport. We will look forward to honoring the legacy of SCORE and the colossal contribution to our sport by Sal Fish at the SCORE Awards Night”.""
