Motion Tire Ridgecrest 300 Official Results
Hometown driver Richard Boyle captures overall and Class 1 victories in ground rumbling two-seater to highlight the SNORE Motion Tire 300
RIDGECREST, Calif. -- The Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts, a group of dedicated souls who have been presenting desert racing events since 1969, could not have written a better script than the one that wrapped up the annual Motion Tire Ridgecrest 300 that was run here April 13.
In SNORE’s second race of the Terrible Herbst Motor Sports Garage Series touting an estimated $25,000 in prize money, the club drew rave reviews from members of the Bureau of Land Management for another stellar performance; while also attracting a strong field of 83 entries in several classes.
In perfect style, the Overall and Class 1 titles were won by friendly and hard-charging Richard Boyle, whose company Motion Tire is a highly-respected business in Ridgecrest. Just so happens that Boyle also sponsored the sixth annual SNORE event here, which was initiated when another Ridgecrest off-road racer approached SNORE about the possibility of presenting an off-road race near China Naval Base in the High Desert.
Boyle 48, running a ground-thundering two-seater, turned in a five-lap time of 4 hours, 35.36 minutes to dominate the event that featured 50-mile laps that included everything from traditional dust to boulders so big that you’d swear the area was formerly the ground for old Roy Rogers movies.
Class 9 charger Jacob Davidson comes off strong start and heads for SNORE’s second race at the Motion Tire Ridgecrest 300 April 12-13
A Class 9 driver is off to a great start in the Terrible Herbst Motorsports Garage Championship series heading into SNORE’s Motion Tire Ridgecrest 300 April 12-13.
Young charger Jacob Davidson picked up 772 points in the season-opening Beehive Sports Bar Battle at Primm Feb. 22-24 at Primm, Nev., and his performance in a very competitive class has certainly caught the attention of the off-road racing fraternity.
Since its inception back in 1969, SNORE has had several Class 9 drivers collect the overall championship. The list of winners is impressive and includes the likes of the late Luther Kutcher along with Bryan Pennington.
And you can bet that Davidson, a 21 year-old Central Valley, Calif., air conditioning technician, would love to add his name to the list of champion Class 9 champions when SNORE wraps up its 2013 season later this year.
Granted, one race only accounts for a fraction of SNORE’s six-race series, but Davidson is going to give it his all after a sparkling effort to kick off the season. A former desert motorcycle competitor, he’s all-in during the effort to collect SNORE’s cash prize, which is certainly significant.
“Everything went very smooth in the first race,” said Davidson, who beat talented competitor Harley Young by only 37 seconds in a huge field of 29 Class 9 entries at Primm. “It was a very clean race all day long and we had no issues. We had a minor repair on the front end and we got hit one time, but other than that, everything went well.”

SNORE’s 2012 season indeed “A Very Good Year” and 2013 promises to be even better
By Mike Henle
The late legendary singer Frank Sinatra made the song “It Was a Very Good Year” famous.
And when the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts wrapped up its 43rd year with a year end banquet Jan. 5 at Harrah’s in Laughlin, Nev., Sinatra’s music would have been perfect for the background.
Indeed, 2012 was a very good year; and the combination of SNORE’s completion of a rich six-race series with blockbuster additions to the 2013 campaign were proof of that.
To add perfect balance to a great year, SNORE officials also donated a check for $4,300 to the Make A Wish Foundation the result of a benefit presented Nov. 3 in Laughlin. A total of 49 youngsters battling cancer were given rides in an assortment of off-road vehicles in what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience.
Roger Starkey, a talented, 28 year-old high-flying Class 10 competitor from Burbank, Calif., who makes his living selling medical devices, won the prestigious overall SNORE Kartek points championship. He pocketed a check of more than $3,300 for his efforts; along with additional incentive money which includes free entries for the entire 2013 SNORE season that kicks off with the Battle at Primm Feb. 22-24.
