SNORE’s KC HiLites Midnight Special was an end of the month heated battle on a rough and technical 8-mile loop in Primm, NV.
Jeremy Deakin’s 1997 Ford Ranger took the first runner up position in SNORE’s 4th race of the 6 race 2011 schedule. Jeremy has been racing in the south western states for over 4 years now and has now earned the support of a time tested pit crew, great product sponsors such as Lucas Oil, T-rex Grilles, Troy Lee Designs, K&N Filters and RBP Wheels.
Friday night’s race started at 10:30pm and the #1481 Ford Ranger started 2nd off the line, 15 seconds behind 1st place. Jeremy’s motocross skills came into play in the silty rough conditions, passing the 1st place starter quickly. Jeremy finished with a time 59:19.968 which was good enough for 2nd place on corrected times! Saturday nights race started off in the same manner, with jeremy starting 2nd off the line behind the 1st place finisher of the previous night. The course had changed dramatically after 2 nights of racing but jeremy was confident that having ex-motocross racer Terrance Russell as his co-driver, they could navigate the treacherous course at night even in blinding dust. Terrance’s help watching the GPS guided them in to another 2nd place finish that night with a time of 1:16:33.781 giving them 2nd place in a class of 15 strong competitors.
This is Jeremy’s best finish this year and hopes to continue this high leading into the next event at SNORE’s Snore 250 in Ridgecrest, CA Oct 21 – 23.
