Binge Racing Takes First Place Win at 2015 SNORE King Shocks Battle at Primm

Binge Racing wins the Class 2000 1st place trophy in the season opener for the Southern Nevada Off-road Enthusiasts (SNORE) 2015 season.

The Battle at Primm is a two-day event which took place on February 21-22 in Primm Nevada and was sponsored by King Shocks.

Speaking about their first victory of 2015, Cary Jones, team owner and driver said "We knew going in that the course would be rough. Primm is almost always a race against the course more than against your competitors. We did a great job of sticking to our game plan and finished all five laps on both days. Even though we blew out a front ring and pinion on Sunday and lost our four wheel drive advantage half way through the race, Bryant (Layton) was able to bring it home for a checkered flag."

Cary Jones was at the wheel on Saturday along with co-pilot Bill Davis. Sunday saw Bryant Layton in the driver's seat with Ryan Zynda co-piloting for team Binge.

Binge Racing's Bryant Layton came up with the idea and luckily Aaron's busy schedule allowed time for the race. "We started talking about a replacement for our co-driver Bill Davis who was badly injured in a recent automobile accident. I got Bill on a conference call from his hospital bed and he said he would be honored to have Wheelz fill in for him at the next race." Aaron's response was "I'm so pumped man! lets do this! Thank you Bill and Bryant! Such an honor!". "We are the ones who are honored!" replied Layton.

July 9 2012 Reno, NV

Tough Day in Reno for Team Binge

We had a great time in Reno, arriving Thursday afternoon we checked in to the rooms and that night attended the Monster Energy VIP Party and had a great time hanging out with fellow racers. Friday morning found team Binge in full force downtown at Virginia Ave and Fourth St. With the All American BBQ festival going on and all the race trucks lined up for the public to see it was an incredible event!

After the greatest tech day ever it was race time. Saturday morning we got off the line about 10:30 am with Bryant driving and Bill in the co-driver's seat. The idea was to do a driver change each lap to keep everyone fresh. By mile 3 we had passed the competitor in front of us and were running strong. At mile 10 the boys ran into a baja bug that was stuck and blocking the course with no way to pass so the Jeep easily pushed him up the hill and they were able to continue. By mile 14 we had cooling issues and blew out a radiator hose inside the cab of the Jeep. After a two hour wait we were towed back to main pit and were able to make a repair and get back under way. We repeatedly had to stop and let the motor cool down and it made for a very long day for our crew. At mile 42 the line blew again and dowsed the drivers with scalding water. At this point we called the race because it became a safety issue. Unfortunately, we were in a place that HDRA was unable to retrieve us but they did send the helicopter up to deliver some drinking water. Our drivers were stranded for about seven hours and hiked over 10 miles to finally get rescued.

The Eldorado Fireworks 500 race in Reno was a newly cut course through the mountainous terrain just west of Reno. Originally scheduled to be four 103 mile laps, due to several roll-overs during pre-running, the course was shortened to 83 miles. During the race the course was shortened an additional 4 miles due to a pileup of cars that could not climb a treacherous hill near mile marker 36. Later on in the day, race officials shortened the course for class 2000 from four laps to two. There were no official finishers in class 2000 and more than 60% of all entries did not finish this race. Needless to say this was by far the toughest course we have ever run.



January 28-29 2012 Binge Racing begins the 2012 season with a second place finish. This weekend in Primm, Nevada there was plenty of action at the Redline at Stateline race put on by the new sanctioning body High Desert Racing Association. The team placed 2nd place in both Saturday and Sunday heats capturing the number 2 position in class for the event. "This year we are running in the new Class 2000 which is super competitive." Says team member Bill Davis. The class 2000 is an open sportsman class limited to having rear leaf springs. This event was filmed by both helicopter and ground crews for later network broadcast. Drivers and teams were interviewed both before and after the race. Binge Racing team members reported that they had a good race and were proud to finally conquer the course at Primm which has historically resulted in breaking the Jeep in every previous race there.

Binge Racing took 1st place in the MORE Freedom 250 this weekend in class 3700 unlimited Jeep. "We had a blast down in Barstow this weekend!" states Cary Jones, owner of the team. "I wanted to go out and have a 'fun' trip where we could get everyone from our crew in the Jeep. We wrist-banded nearly everyone in the crew and put people in the car that had never been in before. These guys work hard for us all year long and I wanted to treat them all to a little fun out on a live course." Team member Bill Davis got his first shot behind the wheel on lap three along with pit captain Kenny Knudsen as co-pilot. Matt Kouba also co-piloted for Jones on lap two for his first experience in a race. Jones says "They all did a fantastic job.
