SNORE to wrap up 2014 season with Rage at the River in Laughlin Dec. 12-14

 
LAUGHLIN, Nev. – In what has become a very popular traveling off-road racing show, SNORE has been presenting its popular programs for 45 years; and as development curtailed usage of land in the Las Vegas area, the hearty group of off-road enthusiasts has found itself journeying further away from its home base of Las Vegas.

In this small city along the Colorado River about 100 miles south of Las Vegas, SNORE will again present the McKenzie’s Rage at the River Dec. 12-14. With a field of more than 200 entries in several classes, the red carpet is rolled out to end the off-road schedule each year.

Highly-respected business people in small communities love seeing the invasion of vehicles that each SNORE race brings – and it’s no different in this community, once a bankrupt fishing village that legendary hotel executive Don Laughlin spotted from an airplane before deciding to resurrect the area back in the 1960s.

Off-road racing has been good to Laughlin and the city has the ideal venue called Laughlin Event Center where a 12 mile course has endless action especially for those sitting atop the surrounding hills.

The setting for a season-ending race couldn’t be any better and neither could the 2014 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Garage Championship Series.

Alaskan Jonathon Libby captured the 45th running of the Gold Strike SNORE 250 Nov. 1 near Jean, Nev., south of Las Vegas

 
The Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts conducted its 45th annual Gold Strike SNORE 250 Nov. 1 near Jean and as usual, the event drew its share of competitors who had to drive long distances to compete.

However, the race’s overall winner Jonathon Libby made every other journey seem like a short hop, step and a jump considering that he made the trip from Dillingham, Alaska. He arrived on Wednesday before arriving at the track on Thursday.

Libby, 28, powered his Unlimited Truck to a four lap time of 3 hours, 51.24 minutes to win the event touring the typically challenging layout with an average speed of 64.4 mph. Sponsored by CBM Motorsports, ODR Motorsports Engineering and Sway Away, the friendly Libby drove his 2001 Toyota Tundra truck like he had stolen it right from the drop of the green flag recording a first-lap effort of 51.33 minutes.

“My family is from Alaska and I commercial fish up there now,” said Libby adding that the trip to Vegas covered about 4,000 miles. “I kind of grew up in the desert atmosphere. I have racing since 2007. Year before last, we won a championship in the 1400 series, but we needed to step up our competition so we got into a Trophy Truck.”

Gold Strike SNORE 250 - Official Results

45th SNORE 250 set for Nov. 1 in Jean; Event may be moving to Kingman in 2015

 
For the past 44 years, the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts – otherwise known as SNORE – has highlighted each season with the running of the SNORE 250.

This year’s 45th annual Gold Strike SNORE 250 set for Nov.1 near Jean south of Las Vegas promises to be bigger than ever before for an event that is entrenched in history. Known as the Racer’s Race, the event is scheduled to attract a field of about 80 competitors.

From the first event won by the legendary Fritz Kroyer on the land of what is now the posh golf course community called Spanish Trail in the southwest Las Vegas valley, SNORE has always signaled excellence with the SNORE 250.

And you an bet that the 2014 SNORE points leader Corey Torres is eager to jump on the list of talented racers who have recorded victories in an event that stretches back more than four decades.

Driving a Class 9 entry, Torres has had a strong 2014 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Garage Series season. Through the first four races of a six-race series that will conclude with the Rage at the River in Laughlin, Nev. Dec. 12-14, the 32 year old Las Vegas native Torres has mounted his points lead behind a series of strong performances.

BLM Proposes Changes to OHV Designations in Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices’ Draft Resource Management Plan


BLM’s Southern Nevada District Office has published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of the Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Draft RMP/EIS would replace the existing 1998 Las Vegas Field Office RMP. The planning area encompasses approximately 3.1 million acres of public land administered by the BLM Southern Nevada District in Clark and Southern Nye counties, Nevada. The RMP/EIS describes and analyzes four alternatives to direct the management of the planning area. Alternative 1 is the “no action” alternative; Alternatives 2, 3, and 4 propose varying levels of resource use and conservation. Alternative 3 is the “preferred alternative” under the RMP/EIS.

Flores family heads for Cedar City Grand Prix

 
CEDAR CITY -- The Cedar City Grand Prix off-road race scheduled May 31 has a pair of firsts tied to the event set for Three Peaks Recreation Area northwest of here.

First off, the event promoted by the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts marks the first time that off-road racing has been presented in the city about 65 miles north of St. George.

Second, the race also marks the first time that the entire TJ Flores family has competed in the same off-road event. The Champion Race Works/McMurrough race team from North Las Vegas will certainly be well-represented when Cedar City rolls out the red carpet for the sport of off-road racing.

TJ Flores, 36, will power his Ford Raptor Trophy Truck in the Unlimited Class while wife Kristine Flores will drive the No. 1943 UTV while his sister-in-law Christine Flores will co-pilot the No. 1940 UTV with her sister Amy Lance.

Making the entire family angle even more interesting is the fact that Kristine’s father, Andy Kisner will ride co-pilot with his daughter in No. 1943.

Off Road Racing Community Opens its Arms to Fallen Battle At Primm Racer


Usually after one of our races, SNORE typically would quickly post an article boasting about the event, giving kudos to the racers, thanking all of our volunteers and sponsors and give highlights of the weekend’s event but this race was different. We felt that time needed to pass in order to reflect, wounds to start to heal, and we needed to take a moment to pause out of respect for Jeff’s family and friends. Yes, it was a weekend of great racing, huge spectating crowds and excitement, but tragically, reality about how dangerous our sport can be and how lives can be changed in an instance, came to be that Saturday afternoon when race car #3002 crashed during Saturday’s afternoon heat.

As soon as the call for the air ambulance came and as you watched it circle around the course to land, you could feel the mood change and actually sense the concern that everyone had for their fellow fallen racer. The focus had changed from enthusiastically watching racers get big air at the dyke jump to one of concern and prayers for the two racers who had crashed in a single car accident on the course. The driver suffered a severe laceration and was taken by ambulance to the hospital but his dear friend and co-driver, suffered injuries so severe, that a few days later, he succumbed to those injuries and tragically passed away on February 28, 2014 with family and friends by his side.

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.

KEEP JEAN, NEVADA AN OPEN OHV AREA

 
Sign The Petition

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
be addressed!

Help us keep public lands open to the public!
