Loanmart-Racing-Lucas-oil-9-18-13LoanMart Racing will be spending some quality time with the fans at the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series rounds 13 and 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada the second annual Loctite Fight under the Lights presented by LoanMart. Everything kicks off Thursday, September 19th from 7:00pm-10:00pm at the Lucas Oil Off Road street party on Freemont Street in downtown Vegas. Of course you will have to drag yourself away from the street party at 9:00pm because that’s when the LoanMart after-party begins at the Gold Diggers Club inside the Golden Nugget. For just a $5 cover charge you can party with the LoanMart team and their fans until 3:00 a.m.; dress casual and bring your friends.

After the festivities on Thursday night you can have as much fun as you like but for the LoanMart Racing team, it will be all business. It seems that the Vegas track is the favorite of the entire team. Oscar Rodriguez will be back driving his LoanMart Prolite truck after missing a couple rounds due to business. You can bet he’s anxious to get back behind the wheel.

loanmart-racing-lucas-oil-8-28-13Reno, NV – Despite many unknowns, the LoanMart racing team was eager to hit the track at the Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, Nevada for rounds 11 and 12 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. The Wild West track is unlike any other on the circuit. It takes track time and a good baseline set-up to be successful; Most of the team had neither.

New to their respective classes, Austin Kimbrell and Corry Weller are building their databases on track set-ups for their Pro-2 and Pro-4 trucks as they go this season. Since the Wild West track is so different, the data they have from other tracks is not very useful. “There is more to it than most people think,” says Austin, “We need to come up with the proper gearing, the right torque converter, the suspension settings, shock valving, tire pressures and grooving. Teams who have raced here before have a baseline they know works. They can do minor tweaks to get it dialed in. We had to roll the dice and honestly, we were chasing our tails a little.” Austin was consistently in the top ten with ninth place finishes in both rounds but anytime you can go to a new track and run solid both days without tearing up the truck; it’s a victory.

Loanmart-Elsinore-Lucas-5-15-13Lake Elsinore, CA – Every track in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing series has its own unique character. The Track in Lake Elsinore, California is dominated by a very steep take off ramp that leads to a huge table-top jump that dominates the center of the track. When the wind blows across the lake, it can get downright scary. Get it right and you become a fan favorite. Misjudge the take-off and you have a long time to think about it before you come down.

Speaking of coming down, If you have not had a chance to meet the LoanMart team in person, they will be attending the LoanMart pre-race party at the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery at 26520 Ynez road in nearby Temecula on Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 p.m. The team will have tons of swag and be on hand to sign autographs and meet the fans. Corry Weller will raffle off a full door from her Pro4 race truck. “I’m really looking forward to the pre-party, especially since LoanMart is putting so much into it… AND it’s at the Tilted Kilt,” says Corry, “I am really looking forward to Elsinore. We made some changes to the truck, I can’t wait to see how we do out there!” The Tilted Kilt will have plenty of great food and drinks. In addition to all the fun, Master Splinter and the Shredders will be playing live music.
