One of the hardest things about being an off road racer is the time and commitment that it really takes in order to win, even more difficult is living up to the nickname “The Prodigy” at just 15 years of age. Going into Round 5 Sheldon Creed was sitting uncomfortably in 11th place over-all in the Championship Points standings and he was well aware of the fact that he would have to make up some valuable ground at Lake Elsinore for Rounds 5&6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.
Kicking off the weekend, Sheldon Creed turned the fastest lap time for the Pro Lite division and would earn himself and the #74 Pro Lite a front row seat for the main event. As if that wasn’t a big enough task for the young Creed, Sheldon and the OCCR crew had to work twice as hard this weekend in an attempt to take on 27 of the fastest Pro Lites in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series as well as some of the most elite off-road veterans in the sport at Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks Series at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. Continuing his hot streak, Creed was able to pull off the fastest qualifying time at SST beating out none other than NASCAR superstar Robby Gordon, making it two for two.
