Brandon Arthur takes the win at day one of SNORE Battle at Primm


The first day of racing at the SNORE Battle at Primm kicked off bright and early this morning for the start of the 2017 race season.  With sportsman classes taking the course in the early races the pro classes had some extra time to get moving and handle any last minute prep that may have been needed.  A total of seven heats would leave the line today in the first of two days of exciting racing.

One big story this weekend is the addition of the 1450 Pro class which would join Class 1, and Unlimited Truck in the premier and final heat of the day.  Class 1450 has traditionally been a sportsman class with sparse rules that was intended to let the garage fabricator or perhaps the budget minded to come out and have a class to race in.  With an easy on-ramp to the class, 1450 soon became one of the fastest growing classes in off-road.  The guys building their pre-runners at home now had a place to go head to head with like minded enthusiasts and the competition quickly bred evolution to the machines showing up at the starting line.  Race promoters soon noticed that some of the 1450 trucks were running as fast or faster than some of the unlimited racers which begged the question, should 1450 be a pro class as well?  A discussion was brought up and the racers weighed in and the ends result was a new pro class providing not only more laps to race but a shot at a payback as well.

This weekend marks the inaugural race for the class and boasted a total of 9 1450 Pro trucks which run numbers 400-499. Top qualifier yesterday was Chris Isenhouer in his very cool early Ford bodied #457 truck sponsored by Competitive Metals.  As fate would have it Isenhouer would have some issues in todays race and end up finishing the day in 4th.  Top finisher today would be Vincent Munoz in the #494 MCC sponsored Ford Ranger.  Rounding out the podium in 1450 Pro would be the #468 of Wayne Lugo and the #487 of Josh Williams.

Cooler temps and a smooth track made for fast racing in all classes today and tomorrow should bring more of the same.  Stay tuned!
