California Governor Brown Signs OHV Legislation

CLICK HERE FOR THE OFF-ROAD LIVE! Interview with recreation specialist, John Stewart

Legislation (Senate Bills 159 and 249) have been signed by California’s Governor Brown to permanently reauthorize California’s Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program. The fate of the bills were not in question, considering Brown was behind the scenes during the entire legislative process attacking the OHV program.

The California’s Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program was established in 1971. California OHV user taxes and fees directly fund OHV management and facility maintenance. This self-sustaining program doesn’t require general fund taxes.

The OHMVR program provides funds to local, state and federal agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit entities for OHV management on both federal and state lands, according to the SEMA Action Network. OHV use contributes an estimated $20 billion to the California economy and provides high-quality sustainable recreation to nearly 6 million OHV enthusiasts.  The law of the State of California, started as S.B. 159 and S.B. 249, reauthorizes the OHMVR program indefinitely.

"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?'
Our opinion back in November 2014

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?

*Roger Norman attempts to CENSURE Ensenada local press!

CLICK HERE FOR THE LOCAL PRESS REPORT

El Vigia Newspaper, the local press here in Ensenada, has reported on Roger Norman, before he owned SCORE.

He claims, El Vigia Newspaper with "Hate speech". Thus, he did not allow the local newspaper to his event, here in Ensenada this weekend.

Roger Norman himself, did not allow the newspaper 'credentials, or approved access to this years race event. Roger has more problems with the press.

-Roger Norman and his employees, have attempted cover-ups of negligent race operations. Including and not limited to, the death of Kurt Caselli.

-This weekends race event, was marred by another life threatening emergency medical race misadventure, involving the Parkhouse and another rig. Then, SCORE attempted to coverup this incident as well.

These conspired attempts to hide the truth are now open for public consumption.

The lives of the people of Mexico and the paying customers of SCORE are at risk.
