First off I would like to thank SNORE for always putting on one of the best season closer to the 2012 desert racing season’s and getting the permit once again from BLM to cross the road and race the back section of Laughlin! Day one weather was super windy and cold but it made it nice for the racers on the track with the wind blowing the dust away. Now day two weather was great and warmed up to T-Shirt weather but the wind was at a stand still the last half of the day making it hard to see for the drivers. Especially the last race of the day, which also makes it super fun for photos when you can’t see the cars in the hanging dust.
As the 2012 SNORE season came to an end at RAGE @ THE RIVER, Laughlin NV. It was the Class 1 Unlimited’s who took the top 3 spots for Saturdays race. 1st place went to #109 Tony Murray running a smooth race just beating Adam Bosh #121 by 11seconds. Not a bad finish for Adam Bosh since his race car has not seen a race in 6 months. Taking 3rd was Terry Householder running his Trophy Truck with out the glass in Class 1 Unlimited.
After the intense battle day 1 between Michael Lapaglia and Cody Freedman running his beam front in EcoTec in class 10, it was Lapaglia for the win day 1 and day 2 in class 10. But it was Cody Reed to watch out for in class 12. Reed took 1st place with a time 1:08:50.390 beating all the other class12’s, all the class 10’s, several Class 1 unlimited cars and all the Trophy Trucks except for Steve Olliges #28.
With 33 entries the 1450 class it’s always a fun race to watch because the 1450 racers seem to have the Robby Gordon mentality, “Win or Brake” no in between. Plus the 1450 racers love the camera/video guys and will show off just to get awsome Photos/Footage even if it means breaking!?!? That said only 18 of 33 finished Race Day One and 17 of the 33 racers finished Race Day Two. Congrats to Randy Shields taking 5th day 1 and 1st Place day 2.
Now one of the most competative classs, 1600’s. After the day one action it was hard to tell who was going to take day 2. Luke McMillin was in 1st followed by Class Champ Jason Colman in 2nd and Cody Robinson in 3rd race day 1. Race day 2 began and the tides did change. The top 3 finishers day one dropped back and it was #1632 Fernie Padilla in 1st, Cory Boyer 2nd and Blaine Conrad in 3rd place followed closely by Jason Colman in 4th, Luke McMillin in 6th and Cody Robinson dropping to 13th for race day 2.
