Caliente, NV. – Caliente, NV has a long history in being home to off-road racing for Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts. After having pulled Caliente off the race list for quite some time, the 2015 season sought out to bring Caliente back to the table, and is continuing into the 2016 season. S.N.O.R.E. is back in Caliente once again, a racecourse that is sure to be nothing but top notch. Many racers have said this race is like nothing else, being their absolute favorite race of the year.

California iron worker Curt Geer is now 2-for-2 in SNORE’s rich 2016 Pat’s Signs series
Southern California off-road racer Curt Geer is a busy guy, to say the least. At the age of 33, he’s a talented iron worker whose employment now has him showcasing his talent in construction at a children’s hospital at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif.
When he’s not helping bring beauty to a hospital, he’s got his foot to the floor in an off-road race. So far this year, the talented competitor has captured Class 1600 victories in the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts first two races of the season, the Battle of Primm south of Las Vegas, and the Motion Tire 300 in Ridgecrest, Calif.
A resident of Pomona, Calif., Geer has proven himself in the iron worker business and following the SNORE/MORE Motion Tire 300 April 2, it’s evident that he is also turning the off-road racing business into another work of art during SNORE’s six-race Patrick’s Signs series which will boast about $30,000 in prize money when the season concludes later this year.
Geer, who started off-road racing in 1998, ran a flawless race at Ridgecrest, a beautiful community near the China Naval Base in Southern California that boasts of springtime flowers, a challenging race course and a field of about 140 entries in numerous classes.
In fact, if someone was writing the script to this event, Geer was undoubtedly the event’s Rocky Balboa taking on a brutal race layout while gliding to 1600 victory by more than 26 minutes over the nearest challenger. While Ridgecrest offers everything from bone-jarring jumps to rock big enough to gobble up the best of competitors, Geer sailed in a sport known for failed equipment and sudden stops.
Motion Tire 300 Results
Strong field expected for SNORE’s Motion Tire 300 this weekend in Ridgecrest
By Mike Henle
RIDGECREST, Calif. – For nine years, the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts has made a habit of bringing their show here each spring. In what has become a true win-win for everyone involved, the Motion Tire 300 returns again this weekend bringing with it 140 entries and enough action to turn this quiet city into a mecca of racing.
To borrow an old line from the sport of baseball, this is a homerun and in fact, it’s a grand slam. It’s basketball’s version of a slam dunk and a touchdown in the sport of football. The spring weather is ideal, and the terrain is reminiscent of a good old-fashioned scene from a Country Western movie.
Indeed, this beautiful city situated not far from Edwards Air Force Base is about 3 ½ hours from Vegas, but it’s also very close to a hotbed of off-road racers in Southern California. The allure of the area combined with the history of SNORE makes for the perfect combination.
The second race of SNORE’s 2016 Patrick Signs Series, the event is coming off a stellar Battle at Primm season-opener south of Las Vegas. Just as important is the fact that the cost to put on the race here is far less than in Nevada as SNORE – which was founded in 1969 – continues to solidify itself as the oldest off-road racing sanctioning body in the country.
