Norman Motorsports is the professional Trophy Truck #8 offroad racing team based in San Diego, California. It is owned and operated by Roger Norman. The team races in numerous off-road circuits, including SCORE/Tecate Baja series and Best In The Desert.[1]

In the first year of racing the SCORE points series, the team has already taken home the overall win at the Terribles Primm 300 which is quite a noteworthy feat for a brand new team. Norman Motorsports is currently[when?] in 6th place overall going into the Baja 1000 and has proven to be a contender to win it. They would currently be ranked 2nd if the race truck had finished Laughlin.[2]

A new video game (Baja: Edge of Control) was released at the end of September 2008 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 featuring the #8 Norman Motorsports trophy truck in team livery. The game was created by 2XL Games of Phoenix, Arizona.

Operations[edit]

Norman Motorsports is moving into a new 16,400-square-foot (1,520 m2) facility located at 9434 Bond Avenue in El Cajon, California. The new facility will be ready in January 2009 and is located next door to Fortin Transmissions and near Ivan Stewart's Pro Truck, Paul Mishell's Racer Services and McMillin Racing's facility. Currently Norman Motorsports is leasing 7,000 square feet (650 m2) at Wide Open in Irvine, California.
