Rounds 3&4 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series took place on the outskirts of Phoenix, AZ at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. After years of racing during the day at this track, LOORRS threw all the drivers a curve ball when they decided to race under the lights. Patrick Clark and his Las Vegas based team came off some great momentum from opening rounds and were prepared to push hard going into the second weekend of racing.
CORONA, California – With the Lucas Oil Off Road Series Rounds 1 & 2 completed, Casey was looking to have a consistent performance in Rounds 3 and 4 to keep his upward momentum going. And he did just that. Fast in practice on Thursday and in qualifying on Saturday, he turned in great race performances and is sitting in the top 5 in the largest class in all of short course.
Thursday, April 23, Team Renezeder pulled into the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona, with hopes of carrying the positive momentum from the last race into rounds 3 and 4 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Practice went well and both trucks were fast and had a good feel.
Chandler, AZ – Brian Deegan was anxious to get back in the saddle when the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series headed to Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona April 24 – 25. The six time champion was forced to sit out rounds one and two at Lake Elsinore due to an injury. He may not have been 100 percent during practice on Thursday but it was clear he was getting up to speed quickly. He was 5th fastest in Pro-2 and was getting the new Rockstar Energy / Makita Power Tools Ford Pro-4 dialed in; running in the 7th spot. He was looking forward to making some adjustments and laying down some fast times during qualifying on Friday. He would not get the chance as sudden heavy rains drenched the track with enough force to cancel both practice and qualifying. Starting positions for Friday’s heats were determined by the points standings.
Tyme Agency’s Gavin Harlien continued with his consistent finishes for the 2014 race season this past weekend and was able to capture the highly coveted Rookie Of The Year award for the Pro Lite division in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at just 15 years old.
Lake Elsinore, Ca. (Oct. 22, 2014) – As the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series draws close to its final weekend of racing for the 2014 season, BFGoodrich Tires enters the finals rounds with the intent to win. Championships are still in reach for BFGoodrich drivers who will race under the lights on Friday night and then again Saturday morning for the final round.
BFGoodrich driver Sheldon Creed has seen the podium 10 times this year throughout the season in the Pro-Lite class. With a 14 point lead, Creed will have to hold off his fellow competitors in order to claim the overall LOORRS Pro-Lite Championship. This young driver has proved to the veterans of the sport that he has talent behind the wheel and is looking to further his career in short course.
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.
San Bernardino, CA – In a season that few would call anything less than amazing, Rigid Industries Torture Team member Kyle LeDuc continued his winning streak taking his seventh and eighth consecutive victories in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Pro-4 class. It has been anything but easy for Kyle but when it counts, he’s been the first to the checkered flag, again and again.
LAS VEGAS, Nev. – With four races to go in the 2014 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORS), Patrick Clark is ready to move forward; that’s why he’s moving back to the truck that helped him score better results last season.
