RENO, NV – The Torchmate SuperLite Championship Truck driven by Dawson Kirchner went all the way to first place on Sunday at the 6th round of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Round at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California. The win topped off an exceptional race weekend. “This was my second win in a SuperLite truck, I am really excited to be back on the podium!” said Dawson Kirchner.
Kirchner started out the weekend with the fastest lap time in practice on Friday. Putting some great lap times down, the car felt perfect in the warm Southern California conditions. Saturday was no different when the Torchmate truck took the fastest qualifying time. With a two row inverted start, Kirchner lined up in the second row. His finish on Saturday wouldn’t be the best with a flat tire that put him a lap down that he could never make up.
Sunday, the SuperLite Torchmate Truck hit the track with authority at practice where Dawson Kirchner again led the pack with fastest lap time. This time his qualifying position would pay off, putting him on the pole position of Sundays SuperLite Main event. “There really was no battle, I stayed out in front for the whole race and was a full straight and a half ahead by the time they threw the checker flag,” said Kirchner.

After the awards ceremony on Sunday, in true sportsmanship, Dawson handed over his First Place trophy to Jeff “OX” Kargola’s younger brother Tanner Huffer. “It was the right thing to do. Jeff “OX” Kargola was part of the SuperLite family of drivers last year,” said Kirchner. SuperLite Championship displayed the Kargola truck in his memory at the Glen Helen race.
The Torchmate SuperLite Truck will be at Miller Motorsports Park in Toole, UT June 25th and 26th for rounds 7 and 8 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.
