RENO, NV – The Torchmate SuperLite Championship Truck driven by Dawson Kirchner went all the way to first place on Sunday at the 6th round of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Round at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California.  The win topped off an exceptional race weekend. “This was my second win in a SuperLite truck, I am really excited to be back on the podium!” said Dawson Kirchner.

Kirchner started out the weekend with the fastest lap time in practice on Friday.  Putting some great lap times down, the car felt perfect in the warm Southern California conditions.  Saturday was no different when the Torchmate truck took the fastest qualifying time.  With a two row inverted start, Kirchner lined up in the second row.  His finish on Saturday wouldn’t be the best with a flat tire that put him a lap down that he could never make up.

RENO, NEV — The adrenaline-fueled, fender-to-fender, off-road action of SuperLite racing returns to the Firebird International Raceway outside of Phoenix, Arizona March 19, as some of the biggest names in dirt racing kick off the 16-race schedule of the 2011 SuperLite Championship Series.

Fan favorites like X Games veteran Jeff “Ox” Kargola and 2010 runner-up Chad George will face off against a cast of young, talented drivers like Dawson Kirchner and CJ Greaves in a furious, short-course track that features tight corners, high-flying jumps and speed-friendly straight-aways.

Drivers will be revved up and ready for a fierce opening race at Firebird, each pushing for good positioning in the race standings heading into the hotly contested series. Last year’s X Games gold medalist Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg edged Chad George for the 2010 championship, followed by CJ Greaves in third. This year, racers will put the pedal to the floor at Firebird in an attempt to get a leg up on the ultra-competitive field of racers.

“Firebird is one of the most storied and demanding tracks in the SuperLite Championship Series,” said general manager, Kevin Singleton, for the SuperLite Championship Series. “Our fans can count on a spectacular start to the 2011 series as a talented field of drivers fight to the finish in a no-holds-barred contest of horsepower, driving skill and high-stakes jockeying between metal machines.”

The SuperLite Championship Series, part of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, has been described as “motorcross racing on steroids” for the abundance of dirt jumps on the short-track courses that boost the high-horsepower trucks into the air as they race head-to-head.

Between 14 and 16 competitors take the track each race for a chance to take the checkered flag. Most are seasoned racers or up-and-coming stars, but the SuperLite Championship Series also offers a chance for new racers to break into the world of competitive, short-track racing with the “Arrive and Drive” program. For as little as $7,500 per race, “Arrive and Drive” customers are provided a race-ready SuperLite truck, a race support crew and the chance to face off with off-road racing stars in a nationally televised dirt track contest.

The SuperLite Championship Series will be broadcast across the nation on CBS and more details will arrive shortly. For more information, visit www.superlitechampionship.com.
