San Bernardino, CA – Pro level off-road racing is not for the meek. If you are not going full out, you get left behind. If you fail to stick your grill in on the truck in front of you, the truck behind you will. When you constantly run on the edge, your margin of error is slim. Brandon “The Stinger” Arthur showed up for rounds 9 and 10 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA, looking for a win. He was on the podium both days in rounds 7 and 8 at Estero Beach, but he wanted the top spot.
