Sitting second in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Championship points, Sheldon Creed came into Round 15 with an all or nothing attitude and the will to reach out and take a championship at any cost. With the 2012 Pro Lite Unlimited champion just 9 points behind Creed he knew he would have his work cut out for him in Round 15.
As if attempting to compete for a championship wasn’t enough pressure, Sheldon Creed would take the Traxxas AM Ortega BFGoodrich Pro Lite #74 to battle against 25 other Pro Lite drivers in a quest to become the Lucas Oil Challenge Cup champion, and $10,000 richer.
When the green flag dropped for the final points race, “The Prodigy” Sheldon Creed pushed the #74 Pro Lite to the absolute limit in order to make up ground on his 12th place starting position. One by one Creed clawed away at the competition putting down faster and faster lap times each time around the track. Lap 8 would bring out a full course red flag after a nasty rollover off of the ski-jump while battling for the third place position. Unfortunately for Creed when the red flag came out; Creed stopped the #74 and immediately got slammed from behind. This incident would not only take the reckless driver out of Round 15 but it would also send Creed to the hot-pits in need of repairs.
