Jean, NV — SNORE’s Midnight Special was conceived to give racers a break from Southern Nevada’s brutal midsummer heat. 2021 year’s race kicked off about a half hour after the sun dipped below the desert horizon in Jean, just south of Las Vegas.
Cooler temps but new hazards. Racing in the pitch black desert, drivers not only need to dodge rocks, dips, drop offs and cactus at high-speeds, but also the creatures that come out after dark. True to its name, racers battle well though the night. The last finishers are cut off at 2:45 a.m.
Hot wins for Weddle-equipped teams. Weddle-equipped teams blasted through the night to four class wins. In Class 9, Kyle Zirkus earned a win in Weddle-equipped 955. 596 Mark Winston took the win in Class 5-1600. In Class 12, Chad Cummings finished first driving Weddle MD-equipped 1246. Joe David took the big Class 1 win piloting Albins AGB-equipped 152.
As we hit midsummer, we’re looking forward to more hot SNORE action this fall at the Battle at Primm.
