The New Death Races, A Treasure Trove of Misadventures! AMEX Exposes Cause of Death and Medical Emergency Failures at SCORE International Baja races



By Gary Newsome
Publisher, Baja Racing News LIVE! 
From the AMEX Report to the Governors of Baja California & Baja Sur

American Medical Emergency Xpedition has worked at the SCORE International desert off-road races since 1999. Several years ago, when Roger Norman bought the race sanction, deaths and injuries at the events, increased sharply.

Press reports about nonexistent emergency medical care, failed civil protection and degraded safety communications are documented within numerous case studies and patient care failures. 

The changes in policy and procedures in how emergency medical care was delivered produced very negative outcomes. The one case study known around the world, is the Kurt Caselli case.

Caselli was just one of numerous deaths resulting from changes in policy and procedures of the new ownership in the race sanction. Civil protection was completely ignored. Hundreds of near misses, tens of documented cases of dead bystanders and numerous violations of international law finally forced the governments of Baja California and Baja Sur, Mexico, to address the negligent race sanction operated out of San Diego, California, USA.

Safety communications, have been damaged since the 'Norman era' began. In point of fact, SCORE-International actually intentionally degraded several communications platforms for the race events held in Mexico. 

The 'Weatherman Net', a radio race communications network was abandoned. After many years of service, the net was relegated to obscurity by Roger Norman. The tracking and safety service provided through the previous owner, Sal Fish, was willfully underfunded and scattered to the winds, to be replaced by a Satellite service, as stated in previous contracts, not designed nor suggested for use in fast moving, desert off-road race events, held in Mexico.

The new owner, Roger Norman himself, expressed his self interest to reduce costs at the ultimate price of human life. Norman money to the Kurt Caselli Foundation is largely a payoff to keep Kurts family mouths, shut. 

Many of the long term exposures to risk are as a result of the change in medical care to the local red cross, via Normans failed tracking and communications services. 

The most prevalent emergency medical misadventures by SCORE International in Mexico during Normans ownership are as follows.

*Delay in Performance. Many racers have died, simply for lack of care or delayed care.

*Error in Diagnosis. Many racers have been forever handicapped by diagnosis issues in Mexico.

*Improper Performance. Many racers have been subject to failed emergency transfers and third world medical quality issues.

The risk of injury to racers is great in these outdoor competitions. These misadventures have resulted in injury to multiple body parts. Symptoms involving back injuries, chest pain, the abdomen and pelvis have been impossible to diagnose in the field, by the local red cross. Displacement of intervertebral discs are common in these race injuries. Numerous fractures of tibia, fibula and other body features are common.

There is no alcohol or drug use screening done on any of the participants, at any time. There is no screening of racers health conditions, prior to race events held by SCORE. Numerous racer conditions not screened have included coronary atherosclerosis. Documented cases of racers deaths attributed to heart failure are publicly well known. 

AMEX will release its 'SCORE Civil Protection Failures' report on Tuesday, November 8. 

BajaRacingNews.com continues to follow these reports from AMEX (American Medical Emergency Xpedition).

Triumph TR3 Race Report
Raced the very first 1967 NORRA Race

"The Baja Triumph had a great first run back in Baja after its 50 years hiatus, we ran a modified course as exibition only. After pre-running Thursday, it ran the weekend with no issues, only fueling up and never opened the toolbox. We skipped the west whoops, short south arroyo and MX track during race as they were Rhino rutted from the new dang race cars with giant tires and to not impede real racers. Schampa's Andy Meyers drove his first Baja race perfectly, filling in for the BajaTR's driver Tonya, who couldn't make the trip down. Some more shock work, testing and prep now. Will be good to go for 50th Mexican Mil."

The New Death Races; Preliminary Review Report from American Medical Emergency Xpedition. Released prior to the 2016 Baja 1000



AMEX Report To Governor of Baja California, Mexico; October 30, 2016
The report contained herein is the first within a review of Baja racing events in the Republic of Mexico, by the race sanction, SCORE International. Released prior to the 2016 Baja 1000

The New Death Races; SCORE International, Republic of Mexico Off-Road Desert Racing Events

""Major factors contributing to event participant and spectator deaths.

*SCORE International negates participant assessments. Failure to address obvious, critical medical factors. Failure to address preexisting conditions or use any available clinical information. Complete failure to adhere to motorsport participant norms.

*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.

*Use of unqualified volunteers. Numerous reports of SCORE International using people within its organization , during races in Mexico, who do not qualify to perform the duties given to them.""

Lets look honestly at Roger Normans SCORE record as a race organizing sanction. (Click the Links)

*The Death of Kurt Caselli

***Kurt Caselli Points Responsibilty from the grave, at Roger Norman!***

CLICK HERE KURT CASELLI INTERVIEW PART 1; General Information, Team Setup, etc.

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

*During Sal Fish's SCORE Emergency Medical Services were BAD and Drugs and Alcohol were Rampant! Under Roger Norman this situation is WORSE!

*The Award Winning "Sanctioned Slaughter" Ongoing-Updated Reporting*

*BajaRacingNews.com started "Death Race" coverage, February 5, 2010. On August 14, 2010, 8 people (innocent bystanders) were killed at a desert off-road race event in the USA, the infamous California 200.
