Roger Norman Heads to Mexico for the NORRA 1000 and Dos Mares 500

RENO, NV APRIL 23, 2010 – In the wake of the Mint 400 win, Roger Norman will participate in the NORRA 1000 taking on the desert of Baja in a 3-day rally race. The entry list of competitors is one of the most prestigious in racing with the “whos who” registered including the team of Roger Norman and Larry Roeseler sitting among them. While the third day of the NORRA 1000 is in process, Norman will competing in the Dos Mares 500 in a different truck.

The NORRA 1000 is a three day staged rally with unique social events at each overnight stop. The race starts in Mexicali, spending night one in Bahia de Los Angeles, night two in Loreto and then finishing the rally in La Paz. The uniqueness of this race is the two classes of competition: Vintage Vehicles which are pre-1989 and open class Alternative Fuel Technology Vehicles.

“I think the highlight of the week is going to be hanging out with all of the heros of the desert racing world…Parnelli Jones, Walker Evans, Ivan Stewart, Rod Hall and others that have essentially formed this sport,” said Roger Norman. The Norman Motorsports Team is just as star studded consisting of Roger Norman, Crystal Bay Casino #8 Trophy Truck driver, Larry Roeseler, legendary motorcycle racer and Crystal Bay Casino #8 driver, and Mark Post, Riviera #3 Trophy Truck driver.

“The biggest challenge for this race will be driving and navigating a single seat vehicle while reading road notes and GPS,” commented Norman who will be competing in an alternative fuel truck. Day one and two Norman will start, with Post finishing the day. On the third day Post will start with Roeseler taking the third days final checker flag.

While Post and Roeseler are competing in the final day of the NORRA 1000, Norman will be competing in the Dos Mares 500 which explores the greater parts of La Paz. “This is one of the most dangerous courses that I have seen,” explained Norman. “In the first 60 miles there are 500ft cliffs and all the things you could hit will wipe out a truck!” He will be driving the Zorro Racing Team #69 Camaro Trophy Truck with co-driver Alberto Sanchez. They will change half way through the day where truck owner Francisco Cevantez will complete the course.
