*Participant factors. No bars to anyone participating. Numerous reports of participant use of alcohol, illegal drugs and prescribed medications. Non-adherence to any rules or established motorsport protocols.
*Communication among emergency service providers. Complete failure to communicate prior to and after race events. Poor professional relationships/rapport. Ineffective race event performance and follow-through.
*Insufficient or complete lack of documentation. Failure to record civil protection, emergency response or event disaster information. Ensenada, Baja California and La Paz, Baja Sur governments claim the race sanction has been neglecting the public, for years. Language barrier issues.
*Lack of planning and community communication for civil protection, emergency response or event disaster between all sectors of the racing community.
*No comprehensive civil protection planning. Numerous deaths result simply from the complete lack of any civil protection measures.

CLICK HERE KURT CASELLI INTERVIEW; POINTS FINGER AT ROGER NORMAN [starting at 7:07 on recording; DEATH REPORT; Incident circumstances known in 2013 (KC PART 2)
*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.
*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.
*Spectators butchered, one team has multiple spectators killed.
*Roger Normans "SCORE" doubles race fees and slashes services, to parlay for profits
