SCORE INVASION CONFIRMED!
August 23, 2013, 7 AM
*SCORE decides Baja Norte (Mexicali & Ensenada) have enough desert off-road races, moves its agent (Oscar Ramos)
to get money in Baja Sur in January, now confirmed.*
Sub Headline: SCORE and HDRA to unify in 2014, HDRA Vegas race last January FAILED.
Now, heading south (snowbirding its interests to better weather and to 'encourage' more Baja South racers into the SCORE series) to create a non-points event in Mexico.
"MONEY MONEY MONEY" Oscar Ramos, How much money will Oscar Bring to Roger?
FIND OUT RIGHT HERE! We are INSIDE the offices of Baja S. Tourism
OOPS! Crash and Injuries EXPOSE SCORE!
Just Before The Invasion News Broke! Must Read!
Sub Sub Headline:
Baja Sur fails to create an international series ON ITS OWN. SCORE now to bone BCS.
This year, the local racers FINALLY got together and created its own State and National Desert Off-Road Series. However, since 2004, the infighting in the state discouraged the local racers to create an in-house "International" (Internationally Offered) Series.
If they had, SCORE would not have a chance to 'poach' the Baja S. 500. The "Baja S. 500" is of local creation and operation. For many years, the race of that name has been enjoyed by LOCAL RACERS. Now, because the state government is DESPERATE for Any Promotional News (it went bankrupt recently) it will allow 'poachers' 'carpetbaggers' 'invaders' to assume the race name and any chance the state may have held and used its own properties.
Now, the SCORE/Gringos will takeover, the revenue, the race route and any future for local racers.

ORIGINAL STORY: AUGUST 21, 2013
From Venustiano Pérez Sánchez, Baja Sur Politician, FaceBook Posting
BE ADVISED! This information is merely known to raise a flag and see who'll salute! It is not official in any way. Because if it was, it would have been in our local La Paz newspaper! It's not!
"This morning we are in the Hall of Governors on the CD. de La Paz, in where he attended the meeting to see the details of the race TECATE SCORE 500 Baja which will take place by January 2014, send them an affectionate greeting to all comundenos fans to the sport."
THERE ARE MANY POSSIBILITIES OF THE TECATE SCORE BAJA 500 IN BCS
"Given the great love that exists in the region and the economic impact generated by OFF ROAD racing, Mayor Venustiano Perez Sanchez attended the meeting on the proposal for a race organized by the Score International, comprising the municipalities of Loreto, Comondú , La Paz and Los Cabos.
During the meeting held in the city of La Paz, in the living governors with State Secretary of Tourism, Ruben Reachi, the President and CEO of Score International, Roger Williams Norman, Oscar Ramos Jassen, legal representative Score in Mexico, as well as state officials and representatives of the mayors of the state, the mayor Venustiano Perez recalled the proposal he had made personally Sal Fish, former director of the SCORE International, to organize a race of great quality and size international as does the Score and also who understood only the state of Baja California Sur, and today, and there are great chances that the great race SCORE Baja 500 Off Road takes place in 2014 in our state, thanks to President and Director of the Norman Roger Williams Score International, which would start in the Municipality of Loreto to have as a goal Cabo San Lucas.
Venustiano Mayor Perez Sanchez said Off Road races are a great hobby throughout the area, but mostly generate a large economic impact, which will be of great benefit to all tourism service providers in the state, for that reason the Mayor committed to providing all the support of his administration to carry out this race in honor of all the fans who live this sport in Baja California Sur."
Any money spent on SCORE is a waste of public funds. If SCORE wants to race in Baja South, C'mon down! Spend your own damn money to promote your own properties.
Baja South went bankrupt recently. SCORE took public money from political parties for nothing but showing up and showing their faces (before the new management).
Baja Surenos (Locals) want SCORE to pay for its own events here. They also want their money back from the former PRD Tourism Director, who stole it from the public coffers, which eventually led to the governor going to jail. Surenos want their money to pay for the obvious problems, not being cared for throughout the state. SCORE pay for your own parties here in Southern Baja Mexico.

SCORE WANTS BAJA SOUTH MONEY! 'GIVE ME MONEY', SEZ SCORE - OSCAR RAMOS!
This 2007 Race Course Map is the Baja Sur 500 from that year.
This event was promoted by CABO 500 to International racers.
One of the traditional Baja South race courses, various promoters have put on longer race events in Southern Baja. However, with the change in economic conditions, races have become downsized. Down to track and short-course races being claimed as an "off-road" race.
Much like the United States racing community!
Can you say, TORC and LOORS?
We'll now talk about the reality of what SCORE may be attempting. With Oscar trying to get money from the State government, that's the ONLY reason Oscar would travel to La Paz in August! Can you say NON POINTS EVENT FOR BAJA SOUTH LOCALS TO PAY FOR A SCORE LOGO!
