PRIMM, Nev. – You might say that the 43rd annual SNORE 250 presented by EXA 94.5 here Oct. 20-21 was a true testament to a hearty group of off-road enthusiasts who refuse to surrender. The event venue had to be moved from Pahrump in early September to a ten-mile course behind Buffalo Bill’s after a breakdown in negotiations with Bureau of Land Management.
Pahrump, situated about 80 miles northwest of this city, had been primed for a Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts event only to see the certain economic boost escape because of a breakdown with the BLM.
Race Director Kenny Freeman explained that the BLM wanted an outlandish amount of money to permit the race; adding “they wanted more for our race than the Mint 400 was this year. It was insane.”
