Strong Bad have you ever met Roger Norman or are you just talking out your ass? As far as being a "country clubber" he wasn't being a country clubber when he was co driving with a young racer in the kid's Baja Lite at the 2012 Mint 400. They pulled into the pit next to us to work on some problems and Roger was in the engine compartment and under the truck working on it like everyone else.

He wasn't being a country clubber when he was talking to average racers at the awards ceremony in La Paz in November. He didn't stop racing Baja because of the bike incident he parked his TT because he bought HDRA, revamped it, helped the Hall's organize some races in Northern Nevada and has been a busy guy.

Banging on a guy who has a passion for desert racing, is a smart businessman and has a vision for the future might be a bit premature. From what I hear people like racing HDRA races, well organized, trying to keep the costs down and giving newbies and budget racers a good series put on by a solid sanctioning body and working hard on "good" TV coverage. They also have a good relationship with the land managers.

Before we condemn Roger and SCORE's future how about we try being a little supportive. I highly doubt RN spent a bunch of money on the premier desert racing series so he can fuck it up.
Lighten up Francis....
