SHITS, GIGGLES & GLORIFICATION 

The Insiders Story of THE DEATH RACE 2017!   

*Shits; At the Start line at contingency, off-road racings number one - 'first loser', Robby Gordon, began the assault on the civil authorities, proving the "Death Race" legitimacy. 
He said, for the record,


"!!!We are going to run you over!!!"

Telling the spectators of the Baja 1000 2017, the competitiors are prepared for the costs of killing civilians.

A spectator linked to a local racing team was struck and killed. All of the people killed in these races are part of the teams competing. 

They are killing each other and BFGoodrich and SCORE give extra points for death incidents!

Original Story From December 20, 2017.

Modern desert racing, in North America, constantly traces its roots to the 60's. The era identified as 'off road racing'

However, around the globe, automotive racing history points out events and people who started far beyond North America's myopic view.

The Grand Prizes of Europe often pin the beginning of vehicle, car and truck competitions as the dawn of motorsports.

Desert Racing in North America began with "The Desert Classic" series of competitive events in 1908. 'One-Hundred and Ten Years Ago', an era of heralded motorsports was enjoyed by the masses. 

Bigger than baseball, bigger than every entertainment noted at the time. On the cover of newspapers throughout the West, desert racing truly began on the streets and into the desert wastes from Los Angeles, California. 

Los Angeles- LA- The biggest, baddest wild-west boom town in history.

"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!*
(*Current average [racer & spectator deaths] under current SCORE-International owner, Roger Norman)

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?'

'CLEAN DIESEL'; Scott Evans, November 2008: "Following the wildly successful introduction of the Jetta TDI diesel sedan into the U.S. market, Volkswagen is preparing to follow-up with the Touareg TDI. The Touareg TDI shares its engine with the previously announced Audi Q7 diesel, which we had a chance to drive as part of Audi's "Mileage Marathon" event.
 
Paragraphimage
The Touareg TDI is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged diesel V-6 producing 221 hp. and 406 lb-ft of torque. That mountain of torque is available from 1,750 RPM and hustles the Touareg to 60 mph in 8.5 seconds on its way to an electronically-limited top speed of 130 mph. The all-wheel-drive Touareg boasts strong fuel economy numbers; 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, according to Volkswagen. For comparison, we achieved an average of 25.9 mpg in the Audi Q7, though other drivers on the Mileage Marthon returned nearly 30 mpg. Helping the Touareg achieve those numbers is a six-speed automatic transmission.
 
Paragraphimage
Volkswagen says that the V-6 in the Touareg TDI is the one of the cleanest and most efficient six-cylinder engines in the world. The company boasts that the Touareg has met both BIN5 and ULEV II emissions standards and is 50-state legal. To achieve those certifications, Volkswagen has fitted the Touareg with a multi-stage emissions system. Starting in the combustion chambers, Volkswagen has developed the first in-chamber sensors that monitor pressure conditions in every cylinder to maximize efficiency. Volkswagen has also lowered the combustion chamber temperatures so that fewer raw emissions are created, and those that still are get picked-up in part by an exhaust gas recirculation system. Those that make it past the recirculation system are picked up either by the oxidation catalytic converter, the particulate filter, or the Selective Catalytic Reduction catalytic converter. In the SCR catalytic converter, a urea-based solution called AdBlue is injected into the exhaust flow that turns NOx into Nitrogen and water.

Volkswagen claims this system reduces NOx emissions by up to 90%. The AdBlue solution is stored in a 4.2 gallon tank under the spare tire and the Touareg only burns 0.26 gallons of the solution every 1,000 miles, meaning the solution only needs to be replenished after about 16,000 miles. Volkswagen says that the solution is inexpensive and can be added by the dealership or by the owner relatively easily.
Paragraphimage
Also present at Volkswagen's display was its entry into this year's Baja 1000 race, which begins tomorrow. The SCORE truck features 12-cylinder 5.5L TDI diesel engine that produces 550 hp. Volkswagen is hoping to repeat the success the Touareg had at Baja last year. Driving this year's race will be driver Mark Millen and Co-Driver Ryan Arciero."
