Over 8000 fans contended with the unusual heat for the second stop of the CORR Racing series in Primm Nevada on Saturday.
Securing their first wins of the 2008 season we saw Ricky Johnson and Johnny Greaves take home the win. Menzies Motorsports dominated Single Buggy and Pro Buggy with Brian Freeman and Rob MacCachren both winning and are both 3 for 3 in 2008.
In Pro 2 Rob MacCachren placed first in qualifying but was moved to 8th place after the inversion pick. This moved 8th place qualifier Todd LeDuc to the pole position. Rob MacCachren in the Rockstar Energy Drink #21 didnt let his bad luck rule the day when in one lap he moved up to 4th place.
Carl Renezeder in his Lucas Oil # 17 passed Greeves in turn two of lap two taking second position. Lap three saw the Monster Energy Drink/ Bully Dog/ KMC #15 driven by Jeremy McGrath pass MacCachren, but on the next lap MacCachren took 4th back.
On the 13th lap the caution flag came out and the racers we regrouped. Two laps were added to the race for a total of 19 laps as the track crew watered down the track. Dust was a huge problem with the winds and the high heat drying out the track sometimes before the racers could finish one lap.
Before the green flag waived, Renezeder was in 1st, MacCachren in 2nd and McGrath in 3rd. Ricky Johnson in the #9 Red Bull Energy Drink truck was in 5th place when he went outside to pass Renezeder when the white flag came out signaling one lap to go. The final lap saw Johnson take the win with McGrath in second and Renezeder taking home 3rd for the day.
