Battle At Primm Results
We would sincerely like to apologize for the delay in posting the results from our race last weekend but due to the unfortunate theft of our timing laptop computer the night before our first day of racing and other unforeseen events that occurred during the weekend, it made it extremely complicated to tabulate the results. We appreciate your patience and hope you understand that we have done everything we can to get the results to you as soon as it was physically possible.
SNORE launches 2014 season with Battle at Primm Feb. 21-23; Herbst again on-board for big sponsorship
The Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts will enter its 45th year with a strong field and a renewed sponsorship promising to make the series one of the sport’s richest payoffs.
Again bolstered by the added points series money of $10,000 provided by Terrible Herbst SNORE’s six-race series kicks off with a bang Feb. 21-23 with the annual Bee Hive Sports Bar Battle at Primm about 30 miles south of Las Vegas. With a field of about 260 entries, the event will be conducted over 13-mile laps adjacent to Buffalo Bill’s.
In fact, response to the event has been so strong that SNORE President Kenny Freeman said room counts have been running extremely high. Just the 1460 class had 62 entries by the first week of February.
“Primm provided a room block of 500 rooms and 60 percent of those rooms were booked in the first few days,” said Freeman, who became SNORE’s president for the third time. “The only thing going on the weekend is the off-road race since there is no concert or slot tournament, so that illustrates the power of not only our club but the sport of off-road racing, too.
“We anticipate that SNORE will fill about 700 rooms by race day.”

SNORE wraps up 44th season with yearend banquet at the South Point; big year anticipated for 2014
By Mike Henle
The Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts – better known in the world of off-road racing as SNORE – wrapped up a banner 2013 season with a yearend banquet recently at the South Point Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
The 44 year-old group of heart souls doled out about $30,000 at the banquet while promising that 2014 will be even bigger with a six-race schedule kicking off with the annual Battle at Primm Feb. 21-23 in Primm.
Just as was the case with the past season, the 2014 season will again be sponsored by Terrible Herbst.
Off-road racing doesn’t get any better than the SNORE schedule and the past season featured a down-to-the wire battle that saw young Class 10 driver Cody Freeman of Henderson collect 4,140 points to capture the overall title by only 53 points over Class 1-2 1600 driver Justin Bean Smith.
Rounding out the top ten overall drivers were Kyle Vizzo, Class 9, 3727; Michael Brenner, Class 11, 3,720; Randy Jones, Class 12, 3,718; Corey Torres, Class 9, 3,588; Richard Boyle, Class 1, 3,455; Keith Minnicks, Class 7, 3,444; Jeff Johnson, Class 9, 3,337; and John Pellissier, Class 18, 3,261.
Freeman pocketed almost $12,000 in cash. In addition, he will receive free entries to all of SNORE’s races this year for a value of about $3,700.
KEEP JEAN, NEVADA AN OPEN OHV AREA
The current Clark County OHV open area park was set up in 1987 and only 9000 acres. The population in Southern NV has grown 10 times since then. A new larger OHV park is desperately needed.
The Silver State Solar South Project has plans for a highly used OHV area just north of Primm, NV. They are asking to take 4000 more acres of Nevada lands to build more solar panels to send power to Los Angeles area.
Now the BLM is planning to turn the rest of the Jean, Nv - Primm area into a ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern) to protect the desert tortoise because the solar plant project will displace the tortoises existing habitat, minimizing their leftover lands to dwell.
I strongly urge you to turn the Jean dry lake valley into a ”designated” OHV open area and OHV park so Las Vegans have a place to recreate.
The state line BLM district manages 3,300,000 acres.
Out of that area, the Las Vegas valley and Apex valley, totaling 1,700,000 acres are closed to OHV use due to dust control.
The state line district has 20 wilderness and wilderness study areas that total 790,000 acres that are closed to OHV use as well.
The state line BLM district has 2 national conservation areas that total 245,000 acres that are closed to OHV use.
The state line BLM district has 18 ACECs that are closed to competitive OHV use that
total 680,000 acres.
The state line BLM district has set aside 9,800 acres for OHV use and 5,500 Acres is closed to competitive events. This 4,300 acres is less than one tenth of a percent of the land that BLM manages in the state line district and this needs to
Help us keep public lands open to the public!
