Corona, CA: Forrest Lucas is an American icon. In the past 25 years he has built Lucas Oil Products, Inc., into an industrial empire. But this film, shot over the past two years by Director Brad Grimm and written by Adam Cicco is not the usual recounting of an entrepreneur’s genius highlighting factory production lines and mega business triumphs. Instead, it is a moving, sometimes sad recounting of an extraordinary life well lived by a man who understands that his poverty riven upbringing gives him a different perspective on life along with great concern for everything he touches.
This past weekend Brian Deegan and the #38 Rockstar Energy Drink/Makita Power Tools Ford took to Wild West Motorsports Park for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series’ Rounds 11 and 12. This is the second time that the LOORRS has visited the Reno, Nev. track this season. Last time Deegan was here, he swept the podium in Pro 2. As the LOORRS season winds down, Deegan was ready to make every lap count toward his Championship run.
As the reigning Pro Lite Champion, Deegan would love nothing more than to make it two in a row. However, coming into Reno, he sat behind points leader Sheldon Creed. When the pressure is on, Deegan performs and that was clear in Round 11 of Pro Lite. He to the #38 Ford straight to the lead. After a restart, Casey Currie tried to make a run at first, but Deegan easily fended him off. While Deegan continued to pull away from the pack, another restart on lap 10 would give RJ Anderson a chance to battle the Rockstar Energy Drink machine. Deegan and Anderson ran side by side for much of lap 10, but again it was Deegan who pulled away in first.

Reno, NV – Rigid Industries Torture Team members had guns blazing at rounds 5 and 6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series held on what many say is the fastest track on the schedule, Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, Nevada.
