SAN DIEGO—While admittedly fitting all of the pieces together is definitely a ‘work in progress,’ new SCORE President Roger Norman has announced some additional staff appointments as he continues to prepare to launch his first season at the helm of SCORE at next week’s 27th MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250.

As new owner of the world’s foremost desert racing organization, Norman, who himself is a SCORE Baja 1000 overall champion, will start his legacy in 2013 as SCORE International celebrates its 40th anniversary season. SCORE was founded in 1973 by the late motorsports innovator Mickey Thompson.

Purchasing SCORE International from Sal Fish on Dec. 20 of last year, Norman has been operating at warp-speed as he finalizes his race staff to start the SCORE year.
