SCORE Terrible's Primm 300 - Race Blog #1

It is a HOT day in Primm, Nevada - the stateline town at the Nevada-California border.  This is the location for the SCORE Terrible's Primm 300 race.  The race trucks just cleared tech and everyone is taking some time to escape from the blazing sun.  
Rod Hall Racing is running two trucks at this race.  Rod's blue H3 will run in the Stock Mini class and Chad's H3 Alpha in the Stock Full.  These two teams are leading the SCORE Points Championship, so it is key both trucks start and finish.  Josh is sitting this one out, but will be racing the H2 SUT at the end of the month at the Bilek 300.
The race course is a 72-mile loop - starting and finishing at Buffalo Bills.  The race starts at 6:00 am and each truck will run two laps for a total of 144 miles.  Both classes have some strong competitors including John Griffin and Jeremy Spirkoff driving the Ford in Stock Full and Gavin Skilton in the Stock Mini Honda Ridgeline.  However, the course is extremely rough and will be well suited for both H3s.
We'll be posting again after the evening meetings - so check back.  Online vehicle tracking is available by logging on to
