Stow, Ohio – The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) hosted its championship round 15 to wrap up the series at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Ariz., this past weekend. Team M/T faced high temperatures and a course change to finish strong with a podium sweep in Pro Buggy.
The 2016 ROUSH F-150 features a set of unique ROUSH-M/T Metal Series 20-inch wheels and Mickey Thompson Baja ATZP3 all-terrain tires. This addition to the ROUSH lineup takes Ford’s new aluminum-bodied F-150 truck, and enhances it with a host of body components, ROUSH graphics, interior components and performance upgrades.
Tooele, UT – Alumi Craft racers have been hugely successful in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Geoffrey Cooley, John Fitzgerald and Bradley Morris have all stood on the podium multiple times this season. At the previous rounds 7 and 8 in Tooele, Utah, John Fitzgerald added another third place finish and Geoffrey Cooley took his second win of the season.
Alumi Craft racers standing on the podium has been a common sight in the ultra-competitive Pro Buggy class but nobody has been more successful than points leader Dave Mason. His record is just plain amazing. He has been on the podium every race this season in his Competitive Metals / Mickey Thompson Tires / Alumi Craft; eight podiums in a row. His consistent finishes have kept him at the top of the championship points standings.
Abrams, WI (May 30, 2012) – After a great test session earlier in the month at Crandon, Don Demeny was looking forward to a great start to the TORC Sportsman race season at Red Bud MX. The team from Northeastern Wisconsin did not disappoint as the #885 Nsight Cellcom Mickey Thompson Tires RAM landed on the podium during both days of racing.
The redesigned .75 mile long course ran through the hilly natural terrain that made the motocross venue so famous. The layout is much faster than last year’s track, but still includes some serious elevation changes, high speed jumps, and a sand based rhythm section. Then if you happen to get of course too far, you have trees to avoid as well. This is one of TORC’s more challenging race tracks.
Saturday – Super Stock Truck Round One
The #885 Nsight Cellcom Mickey Thompson Tires RAM started on the front row with fellow Abrams, Wisconsin resident Nick Byng. When the field of twelve Super Stock Trucks took the green flag, Demeny tucked in behind Byng. The neighbors stayed in front of the field during the entire fourteen lap race. At certain times during the race Byng would open up a couple truck length lead, but Demeny would find away to get right back on his bumper. With a couple of corners to go before the checkered flag it look like the Insight RAM might force the issue and take a shot at the pass for the win. Demeny kept the racing clean and crossed the finish in second place.
Before a hometown crowd, Jacob Person put on a display of dirt track dominance that had his orange-shirted cheering section out of their seats and shouting themselves hoarse, as he knocked down back-to-back wins for the SuperLite Championship Round 3 and 4 weekend at Speedworld Off Road Park.
Piloting the Geiser Bros. Design and Development-sponsored SuperLite race truck, Person swept the podium’s top spot in front of a packed stadium. He led a group of three racers who are establishing themselves as the next generation of off-road stars — RJ Anderson, Chad George and CJ Greaves — to take the two wins.
“Two in a row couldn’t get any better. I got the first position right in the first corner, and you know, I couldn’t ask for anything better. Everybody’s helped me get to this point… Mickey Thompson Tires hooked up, gave me the drive right away. I mean nobody else even had anything else for me. SuperLite Series is putting on the best of the best,” said Person.
Person’s wins this weekend were the first of his SuperLite career. His dominance at Speedworld was a remarkable turnaround from his 10th and 12th place finishes in rounds one and two, landing him in the hunt for the overall points championship with 12 races remaining in the season.
