I have room for a spare and was on the fence about running one at the 500, but because we ended up having a great turn out with our pit/chase crew I felt there was no need to carry one. SNORE races are a must.

Snore is very strict on where you can chase and pit--not like MORE where you can go anywhere

It would be a gamble not to carry one in a SNORE race; Ridgecrest should be different though.

I once had a flat left rear in Barstow for 25 miles. The tread ended up completely tearing apart and wrapping around a brake line causing more issues. It's not good when your right rear tire wants you to be in 2nd gear and your left rear wants to be in 3rd.

Ridgecrest is a tire eater, and some areas are hard to get to---
especially at night, and there is only 2 places to cross over the train tracks--

well the thing with snore is that it is a closed area blm controls it not snore and some run a spare some dont more is an open ohv area so you know the deal trust me i would like to see the BLM fees go down in the vegas area they are huge amounts and it takes away from the racers payout to go back and pay the blm that is why snore is racing ridgecrest it is alot cheaper and they primm area would be 1000 x's more and i personally had a great time at ridgecrest last year and glad we are going back

I am not ragging on SNORE Lucas. I know the Nevada BLM sucks!!
Ridgecrest is different as it is in Cali. , but it is still a hassle to cover with the rr tracks.
I am glad they are going there again this year though. Should be alot of fun especially at night.

Just wondering why you didnt put the front on the back?

unless i get a ride in something else--
