Loanmart-TORC-Crandon-9-5-13Crandon, WI – LoanMart racing headed to Crandon, Wisconsin for the World Championship with anticipation. Crandon is a unique event that kicks off with a parade down Lake Ave in the heart of the usually peaceful town. The clash of small town USA with state of the art unlimited race vehicles is a sight to see. Of course, any Crandon regular looks forward to watching the classix and limited truck classes that are a living testament on how the sport originated as well.

For LoanMart Racing it would be a chance to take in the Crandon experience and do battle with the Midwest’s finest. The LoanMart contingent consisted of Pro-2 racers Austin Kimbrell and Robby Woods and Prolite competitors RJ Anderson and Andrew Caddell.

RJ-Anderson-Crandon-Loanmart-8-30-13Crandon, WI – The “Big House” in Crandon, Wisconsin is considered by many to be the birthplace of shortcourse racing. Fall Crandon’s hallowed traditions, enormous crowds and iconic high-speed track make it a must attend event. Come Labor Day weekend, LoanMart Racing will be making the trek east to throw down with the best of the Midwest racers.

The LoanMart team will be represented by Andrew Caddell and RJ Anderson in the Prolite class. RJ is looking forward to some wide-open action on the Crandon track. “Crandon is the heart of short course racing,” says RJ, “The fans love what we do and it’s awesome to put on a show for them! I’ve always wanted to win a Crandon world championship, now is my chance.”

Loanmart-Lucas-Oil-Off-Road-5-22-13Lake Elsinore, CA – After posting great results at rounds 3 and 4 in Las Vegas, Team LoanMart was hoping for a little smooth sailing at rounds 5 and 6 in Lake Elsinore. With the level of competition in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing series, that’s just not possible. Every round has been an intense battle on and off the track. With most of the LoanMart teams going through a season of firsts, the only constant has been the amount of work put in by the entire team, their steady progression and the consistent performance of defending Prolite champion RJ Anderson. RJ did not finish round 5 but came back with his third win of the season in round 6. “It was awesome taking our third win of the season,” said RJ, “I think we have proved to be the team to beat, we just need to focus on improving our Saturday finishes.”

For Oscar Rodriguez, it was a bit of a mental challenge. “Our weekend started cautious as I had a previous injury at lake Elsinore during testing,” said Oscar, “Saturday I was a bit overly cautious and managed to avoid the wreck to finish 14th out of 28. On Sunday, I felt great and was driving aggressive. If it was not for a flat, I would have been well within the top ten. Mentally, Elsinore is the hardest track for me, I look at the other tracks as a piece of cake, we’ll see.”
