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.”

Lucas-Oil-Carl-Renezeder-6-28-13LAKE FOREST, CA – Round seven of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series season played host to both a record-setting win for Carl Renezeder, as well as the end of his winning streak in the Pro-4 division.  He now holds the record for nine wins in a row in his Pro-4, going back to round 15 of the 2012 season, the Challenge Cup race and the first seven races of 2013.  Round eight was very close to extending that record, but he finished in 2nd Place

“It was my own fault – total driver error,” explained Renezeder after Sunday’s Pro-4 race.  “Going into turn four, I went to set the truck and hit the wrong brake pedal – So frustrating!”  Renezeder has always run a split pedal system in his trucks, allowing him to use all four brakes or front only.  Sometimes you just make a mistake.  For the rest of us mere mortals, it reminds us that he is, in fact, human.

Graffunder-Last-Dog-Standing-6-18-13Corona, CA – After an international trip with races as far away as Calgary, Canada, Cory Graffunder was back to racing in his own backyard over the weekend at the third annual Prairie Dogs MC Last Dog Standing at Glen Helen Raceway. The extreme off-road event put Graffunder and his Husqvarna TXC310R to the test, but the Canadian was able to stand on the podium with a second-place finish at the end of the day.

“It was kind of an up and down day,” Cory said. “I was bummed about the first race being thrown out because I would have won if they didn’t. But a bunch of people got lost and it was mayhem so they threw it out in the final score.”

In the second race, Cory had a tough battle with Taylor Robert and ended up taking the win. “It wasn’t pretty,” Graffunder explained. “Right before the finish we crashed, kind of on top of each other. I got up first and won that one.”

Ultra-4-Nelson-5-31-13SAN BERNARDINO, CA: Last weekend’s 4 Wheel Parts Glen Helen Grand Prix marked the third annual ULTRA4 race held at Glen Helen Raceway and the second annual win for 2012 Nitto Tire National Champion, Nick Nelson.  It was the largest regional ULTRA4 race to date with 80 cars registering, 66 of which competed in the unlimited 4-wheel drive class known as ULTRA4.

Over the course of two days, drivers competed in a series of qualifying and preliminary races on a 3 mile course filled with hill climbs and tight turns which also featured the Lucas Oil short course at Glen Helen. Ultimately, 66 drivers were narrowed down to the top 40 cars for Saturday’s main event. Many drivers were not only looking for a win but also hoping to earn a coveted qualifying spot in the 2014 Griffin King of The Hammers Presented by Nitto Tire. Only 13 of the 66 drivers registered for the event were already qualified for next year’s race KOH.

Ortega SuperLite truck at Round 9 & 10 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Race Series (LOORRS) at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California. On Saturday, Creed quickly dominated the field under the lights when he took the lead on Lap 3 in turn three. Following two full course cautions, the restart and a constantly position-changing lineup following Creed, Sheldon stayed away from the trouble and led the pack to the checkers for the win. Not only did he take the win ahead of 12 racers, but Sheldon also claimed the SuperLite fast lap for the night in Lap 2 with a time of 53.336.

Fans packed into the grandstands at Glen Helen Raceway last weekend for the latest rounds of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) where veteran off-road racer Rob MacCachren was looking for an unprecedented 200th career victory.

The weekend started with qualifying of Friday, which was used for both Saturday’s and Sunday’s night races.  MacCachren has an uncanny knack for qualifying exactly where he needs to be to put his  ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Power Tools / BFGoodrich Tires / TRAXXAS truck at the front of the Pro2 Unlimited field.  At the last round of LOORRS racing in Utah MacCachren started on the front row and led from flag to flag.
