Jesse Jones secures Win at Primm 300

The 2010 SCORE Primm 300 was this past weekend and it started off with a bit of controversy. Earlier in the week teams were assessed penalties for testing on or near the race course prior to race day.  Rob Mac was DQ’d from the race while BJ and Bobby Baldwin were given a time penalty of 30 minutes, which was later changed to a fine.

Primm is Primm.  Hot, dusty, rocky, and beat up from being run on a few times a year.  Jesse Jones would take the overall win giving Geiser another win, while Jimco who is newer to the Trophy Truck business would capture 2nd and 3rd with Robbie Pierce and TSCO respectively.

– Jesse Jones gets his second win of the year, which will make the points chase more interesting.   After his win in San Felipe Jesse sold the truck to Menzies, will he continue his good luck charm?

– Justin”Bean” Smith probably put in the most miles of the day, racing a few laps in his 16 car, then jumping in and driving the entire race in the COPS Class 1 car.

– Wilson Motorsports had 5 cars in all racing on Saturday, getting podium finishes for 4 of them.  Ronnie Wilson would see his name twice in the top 25, finishing 7th OA in his Class 1 car, and finishing 22nd OA spliting driving duties with LJ “Won’t race a mountain bike” Kennedy in Class 12.

– Dave Crinklaw was the first physical vehicle to finish, which was Dave’s first race in not only the Trophy Truck class, but the first time in the truck.
