It’s been picture perfect.

For the record, aggressive SNORE President and Class I kingpin, CJ Hutchins, off-roading is on the run with no idea when the rally will subside, especially as partner Justice Brothers are supporting cast.

The most recent SNORE performance drew an impressive following, especially when you consider the cold wind dominated the day’s activities.

“Thumbs Up for the professionalism,” said long-time off-road enthusiast and businessman KJ Howe. “Especially when you consider that the race was run right in the middle of a pandemic. It was brilliant and shows the professionalism of the group.”The Gaughan family, applauded the actions of the group. “We’re going to be there all season,” said Brendan Gaughan, who is a sponsor of the series. “We’re very excited about it.
