Race Report: 2017 SNORE 250 Beatty, NV
Last weekend, I loaded up and headed out to Beatty, Nevada to race the Bob “Weatherman” Steinberger Memorial SNORE 250. The race set out to recognize and celebrate the late legend and hero of the off-road community, Bob Steinberger. “Weatherman” was the voice everyone wanted to hear when radioing in for official help. Whether you were relayinginformation to race officials or reporting an emergency on the racecourse, “Weatherman” was the ‘ears’ who directed all concerns on race day. It was an honor to be involved in such an event, let alone to go out and race in some of the most enjoyable desert terrain.
The course at the SNORE 250 was very similar to the recent Vegas to Reno race. I had raced many areas of this course before, which meant missing the prerun was not a huge deterrent. Thursday, the day before the race, I was out testing Justin Lambert’s racecar. The test session showed some improvements, it was decided I would run the Lambert’s Cognito Motorsports built XPTurbo racecar. I was on board with the idea, I was excited to put to test these newly found improvements. The evolution of the build’s at Cognito Motorsports seem to grow and develop daily.
The plan was to be loaded up Thursday night, ready to head to Beatty early Friday morning; the racecar was dirty, needed prep and pressure washing. The XPTurbo was racked in the shop meaning the Cognito Motorsports team could finish prep in the morning. We spent the first half of our day prepping the car; once I was happy with the status of the car, I loaded up and rolled out of town. We were able to prep necessities, but the racecar just came off the Silver State 150 and had endured a week of testing.
