Chandler, AZ – Brian Deegan was anxious to get back in the saddle when the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series headed to Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona April 24 – 25.

He was looking forward to making some adjustments and laying down some fast times during qualifying on Friday. He would not get the chance as sudden heavy rains drenched the track with enough force to cancel both practice and qualifying.
