Rough is Right for
Team Mopar® Driver Brian Collins @
13th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 Desert Race

• Collins will campaign the No. 12 Mopar® Dodge Ram 1500 Trophy Truck on the rocky and obstacle-filled course at the SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 in Nevada
• Collins continues to tune up for SCORE Baja 1000
• 13th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 Desert Race

Center Line, Mich. — No. 12 Mopar® Dodge Ram 1500 Trophy Truck driver Brian Collins relishes rugged and hazardous desert terrain. His “rougher-the-better” attitude has Collins eagerly anticipating competing on the rocky and obstacle-filled course at the 13th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 6 in Primm, Nev., 45 miles south of Las Vegas.

It’s no wonder Collins is such a fan of the torturous event. The veteran off-road racer, backed up at the event by co-driver Chuck Hovey, took the 2005 event’s overall and Trophy Truck wins. In fact, due to the reliability and durability of the Mopar parts-laden No. 12 Dodge, Collins is anxious the track won’t be tough enough.

"This is a good race. This is like my favorite race—it’s really rough,” said Collins. “The four 75-mile laps are really rough. They recently graded the course, though, which is bad for us. With the Mopar Dodge running so well, the rougher the track, the harder it is for everyone else, the better it is for us. The only downside is that we drew the 18th starting spot, so we will be fighting a lot of dust. I just have to sit back and be patient the first two laps.”

Collins plans to pull “iron man” duty, driving all four laps at the event if all goes as planned. Collins pulled off the feat once in 2008 already at the SCORE San Felipe 250 in March. The Las Vegas resident drove to a solo victory in the No. 12 Mopar® Dodge Ram at the race.

"If I don’t have any problems and I feel good, we’ll probably try to save the time on the driver change,” said Collins. “I’ll just run the whole race.”

Collins continues to tune up for SCORE Baja 1000
Collins isn’t taking the Terrible’s Primm 300 lightly, but he can’t help but look forward to the biggest event on the off-road racing calendar — the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 that is scheduled for Nov. 20–23.

"The truck is working absolutely phenomenal right now,” observed Collins. “We’re looking forward to this race and then hopefully going out and winning the 1000. We’ve already won two races in the Mopar Dodge [the SCORE San Felipe 250 and SNORE Mint 400], but the 1000 is the Superbowl of off-road racing. All these races that we do before this are practice for the 1000. The pits stops, the refueling, the driver changes, you work all season long for the 1000. The truck is built for endurance. We have problems just like everyone else does, but in the long run I think we have the better truck, the better equipment with Mopar parts, the better tires and the better motor to outlast the competition. Time is on our side.”

13th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300
The 13th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 6. The SCORE Manufacturer’s Midway pre-race festivities will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PDT) behind Buffalo Bill’s Resort on Friday, Sept. 5. The Trophy Truck class race will begin on Saturday at 1 p.m. (PDT), with a vehicle starting every 30 seconds.

70 Years of Mopar
When Chrysler bought Dodge in 1928, the need for a dedicated parts manufacturer, supplier and distribution system to support the growing enterprise led to the formation of the Chrysler Motor Parts Corporation (CMPC) in 1929.

Originally used in the 1920s, Mopar (a simple contraction of the words MOtor and PARts) was trademarked for a line of antifreeze products in 1937. It was also widely used as a moniker for the CMPC. The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960s – the muscle car era. The Chrysler Corporation built race-ready Dodge and Plymouth “package cars” equipped with special high-performance parts. Mopar carried a line of “Special Parts” for super stock drag racers and developed its racing parts division called Mopar Performance Parts to enhance speed and handling for both road and racing use

Today, Chrysler LLC’s Global Service & Parts division is responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of nearly 250,000 authentic Mopar replacement parts, components and accessories for Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge vehicles sold around the world. To assure quality, reliability and durability, all Mopar parts and accessories are designed in strict adherence to Chrysler Engineering standards.
