Austin Kimbrell and his dedicated crew put in another solid effort at rounds 11 and 12 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS). The LOORRS shortcourse event was held at the new Wild West Motorsports Park outside Reno, Nevada. This brand new 1.2-mile track that climbed and dropped with the rolling hills, promised to deliver door-to-door racing at top speeds.
The imposing track was filled with long straits, big drops and tricky turns. Turn four, Austin’s favorite, had a nice radius but dropped in elevation, which made it similar to the famous corkscrew turn at Laguna Seca. If the reaction from the jam-packed stands were any indication, Austin wasn’t the only one who liked turn four. Getting the track dialed in would be the same challenge for all the teams and drivers.
