The drawing for starting position was on Saturday where the computerized system drew Roger Normans name first as the #1 person to leave the line at the 43rd Baja 1000. “I am so stoked, I can’t believe it. It is the coolest thing,” exclaimed Roger Norman. “No stress, no dust, it couldn’t be more perfect.” This puts them into an excellent starting position to repeat the Norman Motorsports 2008 Baja 1000 win.
Roger Norman’s plan is to Ironman the entire 1050 miles. “I am planning on pre-running more than I have ever pre run in my life – which is a lot!” laughed Norman. “We will be doing a full non-stop pre-run, from start to finish, as a test to see if I am able to perform at the level required to win.” If after the test he deems it necessary, he already has someone in mind to co-drive a section in the middle to allow for a break.
