BREAKING NEWS!!!

Spectator Run-Over and Killed at Laguna Del Diablo; Story LOADING NOW>>>

*At this years Baja 1000 a spectator was struck and killed at Laguna Del Diablo; Cristina Eugenia Gil Bermúdez was 31. 

The incident occurred at Race Mile 151 at apprx. 5 PM local time. The victim was struck by the number 271 Trophy Truck of Carey Chrisman. The 31-year old victim was believed to be part of the number 563 team of Marco Gomez. 

The 'Mexican Federales' (Mexican Federal Highway Police) were on the scene of the crash and even after four hours of investigating, they were just getting to the insurance info at 10 PM local time!

Hours after the Trophy Truck accident occurred, two vehicles collided causing one of them to roll over, just 100 feet away from where the original accident happened. And in the aftermath of those two incidents, a fan had a seizure on site. From local knowledge the area around RM 151 is flat lake bed that runs in front of El Chinero Mountain. MORE>>>

SCORE FIRST MOTO ACROSS THE LINE CRASHES INTO THE FINISH LINE CROWD SENDING SPECTATORS TO THE HOSPITAL WITH BROKEN BONES, THEN SCORE TAKES THE WIN AWAY FROM THE 1x

**Moto Class Francisco Arredondo  and his talented team claimed their third straight victory of the season when apparent winner 1x Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp. 

Ian Young was the rider for the last 200 miles of the race. The adjusted finishing time for the 1x team was 21:26:47. Arredondo, 40, a veteran international rally racer, shared riding responsibilities for this race with Shane Esposito, 43, Temecula, Calif./Justin Morgan, 27, El Cajon, Calif./Max Eddy Jr, 33, Barstow, Calif./Ty Davis, Oak Hills, Calif. 

The Arredondo team finished the gritty challenge in 21 hours, seven minutes, 17 seconds while averaging 54.157 mph. Beginning the race from the first position, they crossed the line at approximately 9:17 p.m. PT Thursday night.

For Ox Motorsports, SCORE Race officials assessed a 30-minute penalty which moved the No. 1x to second place with an adjusted total time 21:26:47.


With the overall motorcycle victory, Honda extended their race-record total to 27 courtesy of the No. 45x team. 


'AutoWeek' claims 0x Motorsports cheated AND pulled a Major Boner:
  

"At the finish it was the motorcycle team of Colton Udall, Mark Samuels, Ian Young and Justin Jones who crossed the line first, having shared riding duties on their No. 1x Ox Motorsports Honda CRF450X bike. But the apparent winners were penalized after what looked like a glitch on the GPS software that showed straight lines where the course curved over the terrain. Some of the straight lines appeared to go over the water. So something was wrong. 

Baja 1000 map
AutoWeek: "This is the problem with GPS trackers, maybe. The gold line is the route the tracker claims motorcycle rider Samuels and company took, impossible unless they had a water bike. The red line is the course route."SCORE-International data

The Ox Motorpsorts team was assessed a 30-minute penalty, which moved it from first place to second. As of now SCORE has said, “…apparent winner (Mark) Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp.” We are awaiting more information on that from SCORE-International, sanctioning body of the race. 

A report in a Spanish-language Mexican media outlet said Ian Young, who rode the final 200-mile leg of the race for the team, did a wheelie across the finish line ramp. That could be considered race-winner exhuberence, couldn't it? But we weren't there so we don't have the full story and SCORE has not responded to our request for more information about it.

BRN Comment: So, so Funnay!!! The regular press reporting on Baja Racing...and waiting for SCORE to reply??? WAFJ

In the meantime, the official motorcycle winners are the No. 45x Bremen-Arredondo-Haines Racing Honda CRF450x, whose official finishing time was 21:07:17. Francisco Arredondo, from Guatemala, paced the team with co-riders Shane Esposito, Justin Morgan Max Eddy Jr. and Ty Davis, all of Southern California."

***The father/son team of Juan C. Lopez and Carlos “Apdaly” Lopez from Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, took top honors in the 50th running of Baja Mexico’s  desert race. 

The team’s fluorescent-orange RPM-sponsored Chevy Trophy Truck covered the 1134.40-mile course in 19 hours 53 minutes and 36 seconds. The Lopez family team had finished second for the last two years behind Rob MacCachren, who won the race each of the last three years. This year MacCachren was in contention for the lead when his engine blew, 550 miles into the race event. Had he won, he would have been the first driver to win in four consecutive years.

The Lopezes crossed the line more than an hour ahead of second-place Trophy Truck finishers Cameron Steele and Pat Dean in a Ford F-150. 11 minutes behind the Steele/Dean truck came the McMillin Racing Ford of Dan McMillin and Gary Weyhrich in third place.

"Back in the days when I worked at National Speed Sport News, Chris Economaki told me that in the 1940s and ‘50s, it was a given that there would be at least one fatality every week at a racetrack somewhere in America. It’s mind-boggling to think that drivers regularly getting killed was the norm".

Now at SCORE-International, one person dies at EVERY race event!*

In September, the Editor Opined...

Lets look honestly at Roger's failed record as a race organizing sanction. (Click the Links)

*The Death of Kurt Caselli

*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.

*Former SCORE owner Sal Fish has now disavowed any support for Roger Norman.

*Roger's disrespecting Imperial Valley and Mexicali Valley residents by treating them as slaves.

*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.

*Roger Norman's continued, failed, copying of other peoples work. The The USA 500/Reno races, the Rosarito race, the CABO race and the Imperial Valley event. He tried buying the MINT race.  

*How many people, working for Roger, are now gone with continued, multiplied inferior performance in their respective positions, the norm for the race sanction?

So, this is the 'NEW SCORE?'

Roger Norman orders EMT - Chopper to NOT ASSIST racer suffering from the loss of four fingers. CASE STUDY OF THE DEATH RACESS


The DEATH RACES!!!
***UPDATED December 21, 2016***

Original Story:
December 11, 2016
Gary Newsome, Publisher
BajaRacingNews.com

***Roger Norman has butchered the helicopter rescue response service of SCORE International.

During the ownership of Sal Fish, emergency medical responses through the races, improved over time.

During the ownership of Roger Norman, emergency medical responses through the races has declined in quantity and quality.

One example of Roger Normans direct supervision over the system comes from EMT Raymond Gray, during the Baja 1000 2013. In violation of direct orders from SCORE owner, Roger Norman, Raymond Gray ordered a SCORE hired chopper pilot to assist in an emergency medical landing during the race event.

Gray was using his fully outfitted 4x4 based out of San Felipe when he received the call of a disabled/injured rider from Mark Prince's Team and that both rider and bike where being brought in via land vehicle. 

Once Raymond assessed the injuries he ORDERED the SCORE Helicopter to land and take the injured rider into San Felipe Airport. SCORE argued through the Helicopter pilot, they COULD NOT and WOULD NOT take the time out, to assist the badly injured rider.

EMT Gray then yelled over the 151.625 frequency (Weatherman Channel): "No! We are not going to wait for one of your "meat wagons" to pick up this injured rider, you will come and land right here and right now!"

SCORE Operations and Roger Norman directly ordered the chopper, with EMT Gray to NOT ASSIST a racer in danger of losing his life and limb.

The racer had four fingers severed. His fingers were mangled in the rear sprocket.

Near Coco-Corner, just north of Checkpoint 2 in the San Felipe area, a Class 50 racer was calling out for help after having four of his fingers severed during racing in the 2013, SCORE sanction Baja 1000. 

After 50 minutes of arguing with SCORE Operations, EMT Gray countermanded SCORE, who was ordering the chopper to NOT ASSIST the racer. 

Finally the Chopper pilot landed against SCORE's wishes and Raymond made sure they took the racer/rider to the airport at which time he called the States and made arrangements for the bike to be picked up and taken home.

During the following SCORE event, the San Felipe race in 2014, EMT Gray offered to SCORE a complete Search and Rescue EMT based response team. SCORE responded, "we don't need you".

Gray hasn't been back to a SCORE event since. EMT Gray went further, once the Norman era is over at SCORE, Gray said, "he has 20 EMT professionals that want to contribute to greater safety at the Baja races"!

Andrew Grimshaw is the Roger Norman employee who attempted to cover-up the facts of the death of famed world wide athlete, Kurt Caselli

SCORE MUST BE PROUD OF ITS COVER-UPS!

Start at 1:17 to 1:19:30, when announcer George Antill tells a fabricated story of a "head injury to the KTM 2x". Just one of the fabrications told by Roger Norman and the 'racing sanction', SCORE-International, relating to the Caselli death events of that evening.

Roger Norman and Andrew Grimshaw cover-up Death of Kurt Caselli

The motorcycle finish of the Baja 1000 2013. As Kurt Caselli is "Lost In The Desert" and dies.

Another announced WHOPPER, "the Honda rider 'jumps (as in the lie the chopper didn't land) out of the Honda chopper' and continues to ride the "crashed" bike to the finish line"

The FACTS...the Honda chopper LANDED

Thus begins one of the BIGGEST BADDEST secret operations in desert off-road racing history! Stay Tuned>>>


The ORIGINAL title of the ESPN story, was "LOST IN THE DESERT". Because SCORE was buying the TV show from the same source, the title of the 'journalistic sports piece' (ESPN) was CHANGED. Roger forced the issue with the TV suits. Changed to 'Casellis last ride'.  Just more of the same - COVER-UPS.

If you start watching the video from the beginning, watch Johnny Campbell, he knows the entire, disgusting story. At that very moment.

Shortly after these proceedings HONDA and KTM refused to continue to race in SCORE International events. Why?
