Narrow Passes and Swept Podiums at SNORE Knotty Pines

Caliente, NV – The annual SNORE Knotty Pine 250 made good on its challenging reputation. Drivers were treated to a tricky course ripe with dust, narrow passes, and bottle necks. This year’s race witnessed one of SNORES closest finishes ever. Unlimited Class driver 152 Joe David edged out Class 10 driver Justin Davis by mere 43 seconds. It was enough for David to take the Unlimited Class and overall win in his Albins AGB-equipped car 152. David credits his car for its winning performance without any mechanical problems.

That Knotty Pines 250 was a great race for Weddle-equipped cars, sweeping the Unlimited podium with David taking first, Keith Waibel finishing second in Mendeola S5-equipped car 172, and 176 Pat Dean taking third in another Albins AGB-equipped Unlimited car.

Chad Cummings added one more win for Weddle-equipped cars in Class 12 in his Mendeola MD5-equipped car 1246. 

Big congrats to all the drivers finishing the this year’s SNORE Knotty Pines 250. We are looking forward to the SNORE KC HiLites Midnight Special in Jean, NV August 4th.
