SNORE 2011… Bigger, Better, Faster!

on 16 January 2011

With unquestionably one of the most successful SNORE seasons in the books, the 2011 season is fast approaching. With nearly 200 entries already entered for the 7th annual Battle at Primm race on the February 19th and 20th weekend, SNORE is well on the way to surpassing the 324 entries of 2010. SNORE Race Director Robert Gross explains, “we have a lot of new and exciting things for this year’s Battle at Primm in the works” and “the fun level bar has been raised again”.

Defending his title for the first time in his off-road career, 2010 class 1600 champion Jason Coleman said, “We’re going to BAP with a completely fresh car, and looking for the win”. Jason plans on racing the entire SNORE 2011 season solo with the exception of the Mint 400.

Over 350 entries are expected for this event. Racers will compete in 22 classes of cars, trucks and Baja Bugs over two full days of racing. Drivers will race one heat on both Saturday and Sunday for a combined time to determine the winner. Many racers have been quoted saying “this two-day format is perfect for the family, it’s very spectator friendly and exciting for anyone who comes out to watch”. This proves to be true, as this event has drawn the biggest field of entrants for several years now.

The course, located on the Nevada side of the Nevada / California border in Primm Nevada will be 14 miles long. This year’s course will once again utilize the short course stadium track at Primm that includes jumps, banked turns, a rhythm section and one huge 140-foot tabletop jump.

For the second straight year, SNORE will hold qualifying time trials to determine the starting positions for Unlimited Class 1 vehicles and Unlimited Trophy Trucks. Last year’s winner and top qualifier, Josh Daniels, is on the list of drivers entered for this race. “This style of racing is right up my alley, no trying to save the equipment, it’s 110% from green to the checker, Yeeeeee” said Daniels who plans to repeat his 2010 performance.

Friday’s pre-race activities include a race course Fun Run for all entrants, plus qualifying and technical inspection where fans can get an up close look at race vehicles and drivers. All events from Friday through Sunday are free to the public.

Whether you are racing or a spectator, this is the one race you don’t want to miss.
