RENO, NV     JANUARY 10, 2011  – Roger Norman is dedicating the 2011 season to winning the SCORE Championship in the Norman Motorsports Crystal Bay Casino Trophy Truck.  “We had two choices, either we compete in all the ‘biggest races’, or we run for the SCORE championship,” said Roger Norman.  “We decided as a team that we did all the ‘big races’ last year, and that we would like to win a championship this year.”

The very first SCORE race of the season is the Laughlin Desert Challenge this weekend in Laughlin, Nevada.  “I see this race as harder to finish than the Baja 1000 because it is a rough 6.25 mile course that tears up the equipment very easily and we barley have time to change a flat, much less fix anything,” commented Norman. Norman will be 15th to qualify on Friday for starting position, 29 Trophy Trucks are currently entered.  Jake Velasco, recently named Norman Motorsports Team Manager, will be co-driving with Norman to assist with quick and immediate fixes on the truck.

RENO, NV     AUGUST 22, 2010  –  Roger Norman started 26th and finished 2nd, third overall, in the Crystal Bay Casino #8 Trick Truck class with Armin Schwartz joining the team for the 2010 Best In The Desert Vegas to Reno race.  After a bad qualifying run put them into the 26th spot to start, they overcame about 11 minutes of downtime working on the truck and still climbed up into 2nd out of 48 Class 1400 Trick Trucks registered for Friday August 20, 2010 race.

“We had a great race and everything went really well overall!  I am glad that Armin was able to join us for his first experience in a trophy truck. It is tough because it is completely different to drive than a Class 1 car, but he did a great job!” said Norman. Read More→
