A Mexican federal government source with knowledge of the incident said on Tuesday, that two individuals had been spotted at 9:45 a.m. Monday, January 17, on a government video surveillance camera at the port’s “nothing to declare lanes,” and observed “using communications equipment". Zabala could not be reached Tuesday, but KNSD’s news director, Greg Dawson, said Liberty is on her own. Gonzalo Ruiz

“wanted to get a glimpse of what was going on...I figured I’d take
video for my b-roll.” Ruiz and and
Zabala were asked for their U.S. passports. “The offender with an

right to use any communications equipment and/or video camera,”

was fined 11,000 pesos, about $500, while Zabala was not penalized.
Roger Norman orders EMT - Chopper to NOT ASSIST racer suffering from the loss of four fingers. CASE STUDY OF THE DEATH RACESS
The DEATH RACES!!! ***UPDATED December 21, 2016***
Original Story: December 11, 2016 Gary Newsome, Publisher BajaRacingNews.com
***Roger Norman has butchered the helicopter rescue response service of SCORE International.
During the ownership of Sal Fish, emergency medical responses through the races, improved over time. During the ownership of Roger Norman, emergency medical responses through the races has declined in quantity and quality. One
example of Roger Normans direct supervision over the system comes from
EMT Raymond Gray, during the Baja 1000 2013. In violation of direct
orders from SCORE owner, Roger Norman, Raymond Gray ordered a SCORE hired chopper
pilot to assist in an emergency medical landing during the race event.
Gray was using his fully outfitted 4x4 based out of San Felipe when he received the call of a disabled/injured rider from Mark Prince's Team and that both rider and bike where being brought in via land vehicle.
Once Raymond assessed the injuries he ORDERED the SCORE Helicopter to land and take the injured rider into San Felipe Airport. SCORE argued through the Helicopter pilot, they COULD NOT and WOULD NOT take the time out, to assist the badly injured rider.
EMT Gray then yelled over the 151.625 frequency (Weatherman Channel): "No! We are not going to wait for one of your "meat wagons" to pick up this injured rider, you will come and land right here and right now!" SCORE
Operations and Roger Norman directly ordered the chopper, with EMT Gray
to NOT ASSIST a racer in danger of losing his life and limb. The racer had four fingers severed. His fingers were mangled in the rear sprocket.
Coco-Corner, just north of Checkpoint 2 in the San Felipe area, a Class 50 racer was calling out for help after having four
of his fingers severed during racing in the 2013, SCORE sanction Baja
50 minutes of arguing with SCORE Operations, EMT Gray countermanded
SCORE, who was ordering the chopper to NOT ASSIST the racer. Finally the Chopper pilot landed against SCORE's wishes and Raymond made sure they took the racer/rider to the airport at which time he called the States and made arrangements for the bike to be picked up and taken home.
the following SCORE event, the San Felipe race in 2014, EMT Gray
offered to SCORE a complete Search and Rescue EMT based response team.
SCORE responded, "we don't need you".
Gray hasn't been back to a SCORE event since. EMT Gray went further, once the Norman era is over at SCORE, Gray said, "he has 20 EMT professionals that want to contribute to greater safety at the Baja races"! Baja Racing News LIVE! EXCLUSIVE
"He passed away this evening. Trusting he is in the arms of Jesus. We are all stunned". Mark Luhtala Family member.
"He spent six hours in the desert with his navigator, Gregory Schief, who kept him from bleeding out until officials could rush him to a hospital in San Diego."
"It took over 6 hours to get these guys to the hospital, a wait that there's NO EXCUSE FOR!"
Holly Luhtala, Commenting on the SCORE Medical Emergency 'Response'.
"It is with a very heavy heart that I bring you this horrible information about Mark. Yesterday evening I received a phone call letting me know that the bruising to Marks heart proved to be too much for him. The hospital did everything they possibly could to try to save Mark, but unfortunately he went into cardiac arrest and they were unable to bring him back." Jayson Strachan/Utah Off-Road Racing.
"I am at a loss for words with a broken heart right now. Last night we lost our friend Mark Luhtala. I had the privilege to race with him this year in the Baja 1000 and meet his amazing wife and daughter and join his race family. I have so many things to say but do not know where to start. Please take a second and send a prayer for his family. As the dust settles...My friend was turned on to desert racing from watching the Baja 1000 on ABC wide world of sports and was living his dreams. He was one of the most humble guys and always told me " Ahh, we are just a bunch of nobody's from Florida" I always replied " you have just as great of a chance at winning as the next guy"! Mark and his team of guys were bad asses! With a starting position of 18th he had moved up to 2nd position..Mark had proved he wasn't just a nobody, but somebody that was here to live out a dream!" Before the death..."As most of you know our team was involved in a terrible accident in the Baja 1000. An update on my buddy Mark..He had his left leg removed above the knee and as of now the rest of the surgery on left arm and right leg went well. My heart is broken for both families involved in this accident. Please pray for both racers and their families as this is a horrific accident that has affected so many!" Fusion Off-Road F-Book.
Mark Luhtala from Utah Off-Road Racing f-Book posting

SCORE Operations and the Failed SCORE Emergency Medical Response are to blame for unacceptable actions, delays and ongoing negligent race emergency response operations. This race incident is the glaring example the racing community never wanted to see happen! The racing community on its own needs to choose.
Does it want effective emergency response or is it happy seeing their own people die at every race?
Andrew Grimshaw is the Roger Norman employee who attempted to cover-up the facts of the death of famed world wide athlete, Kurt Caselli
SCORE MUST BE PROUD OF ITS COVER-UPS!
Start at 1:17 to 1:19:30, when announcer George Antill tells a fabricated story of a "head injury to the KTM 2x". Just one of the fabrications told by Roger Norman and the 'racing sanction', SCORE-International, relating to the Caselli death events of that evening.
Roger Norman and Andrew Grimshaw cover-up Death of Kurt Caselli
The motorcycle finish of the Baja 1000 2013. As Kurt Caselli is "Lost In The Desert" and dies.
Another announced WHOPPER, "the Honda rider 'jumps (as in the lie the chopper didn't land) out of the Honda chopper' and continues to ride the "crashed" bike to the finish line".
The FACTS...the Honda chopper LANDED.
Thus begins one of the BIGGEST BADDEST secret operations in desert off-road racing history! Stay Tuned>>>
In post production, Roger Norman stooge, Andrew Grimshaw of Grimshaw Sound and Video at 21641 Hummingbird, Trabuco Canyon California, covers-up the facts of the Caselli death held in the video (linked below) audio track.
On this production, Grimshaw removed the relative audio, which held facts relating to the death of Kurt Caselli. On orders from Roger Norman.
George Antill, former official announcer of SCORE International, in numerous interviews, told BajaRacingNews.com, "Roger told us to cover-up the facts of what was happening".
Antill confirmed the facts reported in this story.
George Antill and Andrew Grimshaw now own "Dirt Live" and are controlling their website and other productions of DirtLive.
CLICK HEREBaja Bill Fuentes on the Weatherman Recording SCORE Cover-UpCLICK HERE "A coincidence that over twenty (20+) minutes of otherwise publicly
broadcast radio communications between Weatherman Emergency Radio Relay
and SCORE Operations is missing? Ridiculous? No; for once
BOTH lead motorcycles STOP; after 15+ hours; racing handlebar to
handlebar; at the SAME TIME, and in the SAME AREA, credit goes to
thousands who know race officials had a duty to investigate - especially
when one of the riders died more than ninety (90) minutes after he
STOPPED.""Baja Bill Fuentes, closed quote.
Gary Newsome, Publisher BajaRacingNews.com EXCLUSIVE
When Ken K. (the first documented witness) arrived, he moved Kurt's bike closer to the course, to be visible. This also means his bike had been moved into the bushes after the initial crash. (Tracking data; SCOREVETS).
Ken K. then left Kurt to get help. Remember, he was sent to the location without medical, emergency response or any other resources. (Ken K. interviews)
Ivan Ramirez, coming from the other direction of the race course, found Kurt and signaled for help. More>>>
Kurt Caselli's 'open' upper chest wound answers the question why such a strong rider would be down.
Caselli's physical condition also tells us he could have been saved!
