Roger Norman will Ironman the Mexicana Logistics 300 in Single Seat Trophy Truck

RENO, NV     SEPTEMBER 26, 2010  –  Roger Norman is excited to go back to Baja and compete in the Mexicana Logistics 300 in the single seat Trophy Truck.  “All the desert racing fans down there are awesome, Mexicali is the biggest city and they have the most fans.  This CODE race is the biggest race in Mexico not sanctioned by SCORE,” said Roger Norman.

Norman will start in the 11th position.  There are currently 21 Trophy Trucks and Class 1 cars entered.  “I am going to drive the single seat Trophy Truck, so I will just ironman the entire race,” commented Norman.  “In that truck I sit mid cab, with one foot on one side of the transmission bell housing, and the other foot about 2ft away on the other side.  It is awkward for the first few miles, but then it is just 2 footed racing.”  Ensenada Motorsports maintains the truck and he has campaigned a 100% Mexican team, “I’m the only one that is not Mexican yet, but I’m getting close!” laughed Norman.

Norman attended the Media day a couple weeks ago where he took members of the northern Baja media on rides in the pre-runner.  “Are you guys ready?” said Norman….”Muy Bien!” exclaimed the reporter after sailing over the large jump.  Norman will be back in the Mexicali for all the pre-race ceremonies including a Dezert People 8 premier at the Boom Boom Club on Thursday and an evening with the Mayor of Mexicali and the CODE officials.
