Holly Luhtala blames SCORE-International for pushing a SCAM Racers Insurance

Recently, Holly Buck-Luhtala, the surviving wife of the dead racer, Mark Luhtala, Exposed SCORE-International, ""April 2; "It’s been 16 months [Now 22] since Mark died after his accident at the Baja 1000 [2016]. I have crazy hospital bills & ambulance/aircraft bills from getting him from Mexico to San Diego (around $600,000 in total). To date we have received nothing from the insurance he paid for through 'Score International'. Regarding 'Fast-Aid', have no idea what was actually donated."Holly continues:"These racers pay to race then pay the insurance and I’m proof that just when you don’t think it can happen to you it does! It rips me to shreds knowing he was the greatest give you the shirt off his back kind of guy and he was offered NO help except for his race crew and one medic without supplies. The insurance proved to not be worth the paper it was apparently written on. I am broken and beat down but must stand up for him as he can no longer and it’s my turn to fight for what’s right. My girls don’t have their dad now this, HELL NO!"".
