Dean Schlingmann Motorsports Wins Class 8 SNORE "Rage at the River"

On December 12th, heading into the final leg of the SNORE (Southern Nevada OffRoad Enthusiasts) Rage at the River,  Dean Schlingmann Motorsports was in the lead over the rest of the competitors in the Class 8 field and was looking to increase that lead with a dominant performance. For Class 8, that meant that Schlingmann's team was focused on their game 24-7 to keep their position as leader of the pack.

From the moment the starter flag was dropped, the DSM team never looked back. The two day SNORE event, held in Laughlin, NV is home to 390 race entries and thousands of race fans who come to the banks of the Colorado River to see some of the best in Off Road Racing. They were not disappointed.

Racing for two days, over a 12.5 mile course, Dean Schlingmann and Mike Davis piloted the Injen Technology  class 8 rebuilt Ford F-150 truck to a class win on one of the roughest race courses the duo had seen. The McKenzie Rage at the River is comprised of high speed (100+ mph) sections as well as some of the harshest low speed technical areas the Nevada desert can muster.

Throughout the event, Schlingmann's rebuilt F150 (his former "daily hauler" while as a student at UC-Riverside that was stripped and repurposed as a race truck) performed admirably with the BFGoodrich KR tires on Raceline Monster wheels put the power to the ground produced by the 410cu-in Windsor built by Southwest Racing Engines. This gave "Layla" the base for his superior race performance.

As a 2X payout for the weekend, the class win also meant that the team at Dean Schlingmann Motorsports sealed their 2015 SNORE Class 8 Championship. During the post-race team meeting, Dean commented that “this win and this championship are the result of the endless efforts or our team members and our sponsors. Without them all, this wouldn’t have happened. Thanks go to you all”.

Injen Technology is proud to sponsor Dean Schlingmann Motorsports' major win in the SNORE and look forward to further racing BITD, MORE, and SCORE events.
