Charlotte, North Carolina – Returning back to the dirt for the first time in the 2016 SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks World Championship schedule, 10 identically prepared SST trucks took to The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina for the first of two recently added rounds.
Sheldon Creed and the OCCR crew headed North to Reno, Nevada for what is without a doubt one of the most extreme tracks that short course off-road racing has ever seen. The Wild West Motorsports Park hosted Rounds 11&12 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and pushed “The Prodigy” Sheldon Creed to his limits in the quest for a 2013 Pro Lite Championship.
Heading into Rounds 11&12, Sheldon Creed sat in the third place position for the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series Championship points battle directly behind the 2012 Pro Lite Champion RJ Anderson and 2011 Points Champion Brian Deegan. Creed looked to leave his mark in Reno after a not so favorable Round 10 at Glen Helen Motorsports Park just one round ago.
After qualifying first in his group for Round 11, Creed started on the second row behind Pro Lite powerhouses Brian Deegan and Casey Currie. Shortly after the green flag dropped, Creed got tangled up with a few other trucks and was immediately set back multiple positions. Brushing off this minor setback, Sheldon regrouped and began his charge back up to the front of the pack.
CORONA, CALIF., – At just 14 years old, Sheldon Creed and his team are leading the points championship in the SuperLite Championship class and looking to strengthen that lead at the upcoming Round 9 & 10 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Race Series (LOORRS) happening this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California.
On the SuperLite lineup, there are 15 expected entries with second place following Creed by 1 point. With the support from family and his sponsors, Creed has proved that he is the most consistent competitor in the SuperLite class with 4 round wins proceeded by a 2nd place finish and a 3rd place finish. After an unfortunate flat tire at Round 8 at Miller Motorsports in Tooele, Utah, he managed to pull through and finish the race 2 laps down from the leader in 12th place. Sheldon is not looking back, he is on the gas, head down and reaching towards the target to bring his #74 A.M. Ortega Structural Engineering Contractor-backed SuperLite to a Championship year.
