Las Vegas, NV - LoanMart racing rolls into the Las Vegas Motor speedway for rounds three and four of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Rounds one and two were a mixed bag of results for the team, Austin Kimbrell was sorting out his new Pro 2 in competition. He ran fast but had teething problems that held him back in both rounds. In Pro 4, Corry Weller had only rear drive in round one and then was limited to front drive only in round two but persevered to finish both races.
In Prolite, RJ Anderson put the team on the board with a victory in round two. Ryan Beat had a dnf in round one but bounced back to post a solid finish in round two.
For Oscar Rodriguez it was his debut in the Lucas Oil series. He posted a solid top ten in round two against a huge field of competitors.
Rounds three and four in Las Vegas will be on a reconfigured track that will cut lap times and tighten up the field. “For Vegas, we’ll have a new engine and torque converter combination,” says LoanMart’s Oscar Rodriguez, “We’ve been testing a lot and I feel very comfortable with the truck. Bottom line, we should have a top 5 truck. It will come down to my driving ability and our suspension set up but I’m ready to charge to the front.”
Oscar isn’t the only one who is anxious to make a statement on the track. Austin has put down consistently fast laps in pre-season testing. He is looking forward to dicing it up with the top competitors in Pro 2.
Corry is continuing to refine her program this season after purchasing her truck from Team Renezeder. She is doing all the set-up and tuning with help from Husband Jason and the rest of the Weller racing crew.
Ryan Beat hopes to build on his solid run in round two and RJ Anderson will be out to defend his Prolite title while chasing another championship. “I loved the previous Vegas track,” said RJ, “I’ve had four Prolite podiums there, I hope we are able to find the same success on the new layout.” The Vegas track’s new layout looks to be faster with tighter racing; you don’t want to miss this one.
