SNORE King Shocks Battle at Primm $80,000 purse!

As the saying goes, “S.N.O.R.E. always pays more!” Nothing could have been more true about our last event. After having to re-schedule the event, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to put up some big money to draw in extra entries. The King Shocks Battle at Primm was a total success from every aspect. I am always amazed at how our very small team of volunteers comes together to make these events happen. With nearly 300 cars taking the green flag, it was one of the biggest Battle at Primm events we have ever had.

Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts has always been known for low entry fees and high payback. This year’s event was no different! SNORE put up $21,500 dollars in bonus money on top of our already stellar payback system. The more cars we can draw in, the more money we can pay back out to the racers. It is absolutely awesome seeing the amount of money we pay out to the racers. S.N.O.R.E. paid out a grand total of $79,215 dollars!

We had several bonuses for many classes up for grabs. Patrick’s signs has put up $1,500 at every race for the 1st place class 1 winner. Ernie Negrete with Negrete Boys Racing brought in 28 entries for the 5-1600 shootout. The Empi Stock bug Cup of Champions, presented by Rugged Radios, brought in 21 stock bugs! The S.N.O.R.E. bonus for class 9 brought in an impressive 30 entries. No other organization in the industry brings in this amount of limited class racers.

The biggest winner of the weekend went to Curt Geer winning the 1600 class. S.N.O.R.E. put up a $5,000 bonus, along with $3,000 from KING SHOCKS, and $1,500 thanks to Freeman’s Carpet. This brought our bonus total to $9,500. We had hoped to bring in 30+ cars, but we ended up only having 25 cars in the class. With only 25 cars in class Curt Geer is receiving a check for $7,960!! Runner-up in the class was Robby Hendrickson, who is also taking home a nice check of over $5,000! We paid out over $17,000 to class 1600!!!

Class 9 also had a very nice $5,000 bonus up for grabs. The class 9 battle was epic with 30 cars starting the race. The 995 car of Ron Thomas ended up on top of the box with a healthy check for nearly $6,000!! Second place went to Mauro Diaz in the 906 car. Mauro will receive $3,745 for his hard fought 2nd place.

Two other notable big winners were the Davis brothers. Justin Davis finishing 2nd Overall and 1st in class 1 took home $4,000, with 13 entries in class. His kid brother, Jeremy Davis, taking the class 10 win received a check for $4,250!

Thank you to all the racers for showing your continued support! Thank you to all our volunteers, we could not pay this much money out, without our dedicated volunteer staff. And a big thank you to our sponsors that help us put more money back into the racers pockets. Now get those cars prepped and get ready for the biggest race of the year!! Rage at the River is coming up quick! I can’t wait to see everyone there!
