STURGIS, S.D. — Second, first, first, first. Those are Keegan Kincaid’s finishes here at The Legendary Buffalo Chip Powersports Complex after he broke out the broom to sweep the Battle of the Chip, TORC’s return to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. In a near exact replay of Tuesday’s race, Doug Mittag was leading the PRO 2WD race with Kincaid, both on Cooper Tires, close behind. Once again, a bobble on Mittag’s part gave the lead to Kincaid. The Crandon, Wis. native was also able to gain 10 points on defending class champion and points leader CJ Greaves, who had mechanical issues during the race.
“This track’s been good to me,” Kincaid said. “I got my first PRO 2 win here last year, racing in Mike Jenkins’ truck racing for my dad. I felt good coming in here and this truck ran flawless all race long.”
Ensenada, Baja California Mexico – The Rockstar Energy Battle South Of The Border at the Baja International Short Course track in Estero Beach was a brand new event on the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) schedule. It was the first taste of short course racing for many of the Baja, Mexico fans who are legendary in their passion for off-road racing. The track at Estero Beach was completely different from the usual; many fell prey to the rough sandy soil that more resembled the desert than the normally groomed Lucas Oil track. For Brandon Arthur, the Stinger, it was nothing he hadn’t seen in his years of racing a Trophy Truck in the desert.
