Cooley-Off-Road-Lucas-Oil-7-2-13Geoffrey Cooley is back on the top of the podium taking the victory in round 8 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. After finishing third in the points championship and taking the Rookie of the Year title last season, Alumi Craft racer Geoffrey Cooley was looking to make a serious run at a championship in 2013. He started off with a podium and a win but then hit a spell of bad luck. He has been running solidly in the top 5 but that’s not up to his standards.

“Our Competitive Metals / Alumi Craft has the latest technology. With great support from Jackson Motorsports Group, MasterCraft Safety, Impact, Redline Performance, BFGoodrich Tires, Harmon Racing Cells, McDowell Transaxles, FOX Racing Shox, USA Wheel, ProAm, Brink Designs, CBR, Kartek and Bink Designs we expect to be out front,” says Geoffrey, “We started the season out strong but we had some bad luck. Our strategy has changed; we have to go all out for the win.”

The order was the same but not the placing. Bradley Morris took the win and Alumi Craft racers took all top five finishing positions.
