Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Round 9 from Glen Helen

Aug. 05, 2012 By Josh Burns
The Pro 4 class shoots off the line to kick off the evening's racing at Glen Helen Raceway.

Lights. Camera. Action. The Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series filled up Glen Helen Raceway, but instead of racing under the sunny California skies, Lucas Oil chose to host Round 9 (and tomorrow, 10) under the lights. Race fans packed the popular race destination that until recently has been known for dirt bike racing, filling the grandstands and kicking off the pro racing just as the sun went down behind the mountains.

Donít let the fact that Kyle LeDuc and Carl Renezeder had trouble during todayís Pro 4 race fool you: Eric Barron looked solid all day, and he rode his impressive performance to the win in the class at Round 9.

Marty Hart took the wire-to-wire win in Pro 2 to conclude racing at Round 9.

Itís just past the halfway point of the season, and while some race teams are just hitting their stride, others are having some mid-season struggles as new faces made their way onto the podium at Round 9. There will be even more drama tomorrow night for Round 10 of the series, so be sure to check back for more coverage of short-course off-road racing from Glen Helen.

Doug Fortin earned the win in Pro Buggy at Round 9.

Bradley Morris of Sun City, California, looked perfectly at home once the sun went down. He led the field in Pro Lite and earned the victory at Round 9.

Sheldon Creed leads Drew Britt in Super Lite at Round 9 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series.
