Kibbetech Racing, #1466 came out victorious with a 1st place finish at the SNORE Motion Tire 300 in Ridgecrest, CA this past weekend. Ridgecrest has been deemed by many to be the Mint 400 of the SNORE series. It is the most challenging course of the year, pushing both driver and race vehicle to their limit, in the most extreme conditions.
#1466 Race drew 17th starting position out of 33 trucks in class and left the starting line at 8:42am. We set a solid pace, pushing the truck consistently through the pack on the first lap, passing 16 trucks in class and over 20 other race vehicles. Coming into Main Pit, completing lap one, we were running 2nd place. The truck took on 22 gallons of fuel and was thoroughly looked over by the crew.
Starting lap 2, we pushed the truck as hard as we could without abusing our equipment, on the hunt for first place. Battling through multiple race vehicles on a battered course, we entered Pit C and noticed the 1st place vehicle in our class stopped in his pit. From that point forward, we held up our pace, hoping to put time on the second place vehicle, giving us a comfortable lead. Bringing the truck into Main Pit, completing lap 2, we took on another 20 gallons of fuel and gave the truck a quick look-over and torqued all the wheels. My crew chief informed me that the truck was in flawless condition and urged me to continue to push the truck on lap 3.
Starting lap 3 with fresh air, running out front, we picked up the pace a notch, driving consistently and smoothly. We pushed through the third lap with zero issues on the truck and brought it home to the top podium spot.
The truck runs our 17″ RACE Wheel with Outer Beadlock.
