With the Baja 1000 only two weeks away you would expect that Norman Motorsports would only be thinking about preparing to defend last years win in the Trophy Truck class at the upcoming race. But that wasn’t the case at all last Saturday night during the grand opening party at the new Norman Motorsports race shop.
Roger Norman and crew have been busy finishing their shop and also putting together one of the best events we have attended all year. $20 was collected at the door from everyone that attended which was donated to the South Bay Community Services (SBCS) for their Foster Youth Programs. They also held a silent auction with some amazing items and all proceeds were also donated to the SBCS.
There was no shortage of great food and drinks at the event. Upstairs had a full bar in the game room and the Baja Fools were there setup with a bar serving beer and margaritas downstairs in the shop. There were also appetizers being served and a full spread of Mexican food for dinner.
Since Roger and his wife Elise own the Crystal Bay Casino in North Lake Tahoe it only made sense that they would have craps, poker, black jack and roulette tables upstairs in the game room. All of the money that was used to buy in for casino chips was donated to the Cruz Roja Mexicana (Mexican Red Cross). Everyone had a great time and the tables were always full.
We look forward to future events at Norman Motorsports and can’t wait to see how Roger Norman and Larry Roeseller do at the Baja 1000 next week.
