Fort Mill, SC – Team GT member Carl Renezeder is arguably one of the most revered drivers in short course racing.  And at last weekend’s Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, he hit the century mark in the win column adding to his long list of racing achievements.  It was a moment that had been years in the making through thousands of hours of hard work and the kind of determination, tenacity and dedication it takes to make champions.

“To see Carl win his 100th career short course race was something special,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire.  “And to do it on General tires…that was a proud moment.  I’ve known Carl for a long time and I know the level of work he puts not only into his racing, but into every aspect of his life.  He’s a champion in every sense of the word and everyone at General Tire is proud to call him a member of our team.  We congratulate Carl and his entire team on win number 100!”

Fort Mill, SC – August 29, 2012 –  Wild West Motorsports Park, in Reno, Nevada, provided plenty of wild west racing during rounds 11 and 12 of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) competition.  It was a brand new track that some drivers took to quickly while others struggled to conquer.  Team GT fared well as up-and-comer Ryan Beat posted his first career LOORRS win in ProLite.

“This weekend was such a great weekend for us,” said Beat after the race.  “We officially moved into second in the points standings and captured our first win in my rookie season.  Huge thanks to General Tire for all the support.”

LAKE FOREST, CA – Carl Renezeder’s season seems to have finally turned the corner from bad luck and bad results. Coming off of the worst weekend of his career earlier in the month, Renezeder vowed to get to the root of the problems and turn things around. He and his team delivered this past weekend at the brand new Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, Nevada for rounds 11 and 12 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. The team prepped the trucks to take the harsh pounding of the high-speed, hard-hitting 1.2-mile course, and Renezeder adapted to the new track quickly and drove flawlessly, also physically enduring the hard-hitting course. He earned career short-course victory number 99 on Sunday afternoon in the Pro-4 race, and he put both of his Nissan Titans on the podium in the second spot in two other races. His worst finish was a fourth-place result in Pro-2 on Saturday – a far cry from Glen Helen’s score card just a few weeks ago.

The first race weekend at this terrific new facility is now in the books, and more improvements being planned for the future of Wild West Motorsports Park, this is sure to be a track that will host big things in the world of short course off-road for years to come. Right now, though, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series drivers are coming down to crunch time in the 2012 championship, and with just three regular season rounds left to run, everyone will be looking for every last valuable point as the season winds rapidly down. In just four weeks’ time, the battle will be on once again, as we return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Rounds 13 and 14, September 21 and 22. Tickets are on sale now, so get online and get yours today, because you won’t want to miss a minute!

Under the sunshine of a brilliant northern Nevada afternoon, the drivers of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, took to the track for Round 11 of the 2012 championship. In this all-new venue, the Wild West Motorsports Park, some drivers have found success quite quickly, while others have been, shall we say, less fortunate.

The high speeds and large amounts of elevation change have been presenting a unique set of challenges for the drivers, but everyone has risen to the occasion to the best of their ability, and the local Reno-area fans, many of whom are seeing short course off-road racing for the first time, have been cheering loudly and smiling widely all afternoon long. To find out what went on here this afternoon, read on and see what all our new off-road fans will be talking about.

Fort Mill, SC – August 1, 2012.  The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) will go under the lights for this weekend’s round 9 & 10 action at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA.  After a month away from competition, team GT is looking to triumph over the daunting track and add to the win column in the second-half of the 2012 season.  Known for its natural terrain, this track’s huge jumps and technical obstacles combined with a field full of determined drivers, is certain to provide lots of door-to-door unrest.

LOORRS champion Carl Renezeder will vie for two more wins to hit the century mark while up-and-comer Ryan “Fluffer” Hagy is knocking on the door of his first career win in LOORRS SuperLite action.  In Hagy’s second year of LOORRS competition, the Metal Mulisha member has certainly demonstrated the tenacity, prowess and knowledge needed to succeed in a series that is notoriously taxing on even the best of drivers.  We visited with Hagy and asked him about Glen Helen, his goals, and Renezeder, here’s what he had to say:

LAKE FOREST, CA – The winless streak is finally over for Carl Renezeder, and thankfully he got to battle for the top spot the entire race to add to the excitement of career win number 98.  Renezeder qualified second for the Pro-4 race on Saturday, then started the race in third with the four-truck inversion draw. He got around Greg Adler on lap three and then engaged in a great battle with Todd LeDuc until the mandatory caution on lap ten.  LeDuc held off Renezeder’s relentless pursuit for another four laps, but Renezeder made the pass stick on lap 14, leading the final six laps for the win.

“I’m definitely excited about this win, but I’m also relieved,” commented Renezeder.  “We finally avoided the bad luck we’ve had this season, and I had a great time battling with Todd.  Let’s hope this is a sign of better things to come for this team.”

It looked promising for the Pro-2 race that afternoon, as Renezeder had earned the pole position on Friday afternoon.  Unfortunately, a right rear flat in the early laps of the race was enough to keep Renezeder from battling for the podium.  The crew did a great job of changing the flat at the mandatory caution, keeping the truck on the lead lap, but he was half a lap behind the leaders at the restart.  Renezeder managed to catch the field and pass two trucks in the second half of the race, but that was only enough to finish ninth.

TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH —One of the wildest events of the year is on tap at Miller Motorsports Park this weekend, June 23-24, as the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series makes its third annual visit to Utah.

There are nine separate racing classes, four for trucks, two for buggies and three for karts (small, truck-bodied off-road buggies). In addition to well-known off-road racing stars like Utah’s Jerry Daugherty, Carl Renezeder, Curt LeDuc and Rob McCachren, the series is enjoying an influx of action sports stars such as motocross legends Jeremy McGrath, Brian Deegan, Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg and Carey Hart.
