LAKE FOREST, CA (April 7, 2011) – With a quiet confidence and decided determination, Carl Renezeder and his crew will head to Surprise, Arizona next weekend (April 15-17) for rounds three and four of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Last year Renezeder found plenty of success on the desert short course at Speedworld Motorsports Park with three wins and seven total podiums in eight races.
“We’re just going to keep chipping away at this season one race at a time, taking nothing for granted,” commented Renezeder. “More than ever, we’re appreciating each chance we get to make laps in these truck, giving us the opportunity to improve.”
Years ago, making these trucks faster usually required a few big changes, but as they’ve evolved, finding the on-track advantage has become about the small changes and constant innovation.
“Staying ahead of the learning and development curves with these trucks is crucial,” explained Renezeder. “It’s pretty easy to find 95% of the speed out there; it’s the last 5% that requires the majority of our effort.”
So as the team, lead by crew chief Bill Smith of ProFab Motorsport, heads out to the Phoenix area next weekend, they will continue to find ways to get quicker each lap. That and a little bit of luck is what it will take to find the next win.
The series opens the weekend with practice and qualifying on Friday, April 15, followed by an autograph session and event kick-off party at The Tilted Kilt in Peoria, featuring Renezeder and several other top drivers. Renezeder will then celebrate his birthday on Saturday by throwing around some dirt and chasing a couple of trophies as the Series hosts round three of the championship starting at 2:00 p.m. Sunday will consist of qualifying in the morning and then round four races starting at the same time as Saturday.
