Mike Norris Senior’s love of Off Road Racing began many years ago when he started working as a checkpoint helper. In 1984, Mike decided to give racing his full attention. He built and started competing in Class 5-1600 Baja bugs in the SCORE series. Mike’s sons, David and Michael, both grew up watching their Dad and became involved in both prepping and driving the car. The Team won the 1996 Championship Baja Promotions series in Class 5-1600 and in 2003 won the Championship for 5-1600 in the M.O.R.E. series. In 2000, the Team added a Class 10 race car to their line-up. In 2001, they were second place runner-up in the M.O.R.E. series. After 2 years of racing their Class 10, they decided to upgrade to a new vehicle and started building their current Class 10 race car. Several years of hard work and determination paid off and the car was finally ready to race by the end of 2006. In 2008, the car went through a serious overhaul and was transformed from a beam car into an A-arm, and was ready to race once again in January 2012. March 2012 brought a huge shock to the Norris family and Team with the loss of Mike Norris Sr. With the help of family and friends, Norris Racing was able to fight their way to the title of Class 10 Champion in the High Desert Racing Association (HDRA) series in 2012. The championship was won in honor of Mike. The very next year, the family had another devastating loss with the passing of Donald ‘Papa’ Norris, Michael and David’s Grandfather. Norris Racing has made it their mission to keep the memory of Mike Norris Sr. and Donald Norris alive by continuing Mike’s racing legacy. This year, the Team has had multiple top finishes racing the M.O.R.E. series, including a 1st in Class, 2nd Overall finish at the McKenzies 400 and 1st in Class, 2nd Overall at the Freedom 250. The team is competing for another Class 10 Championship. They are always working hard to improve their current car and in 2015 will be welcoming a brand new Class 10 car, fabricated by LaTer Engineering.
