Rounds 5 and 6 of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Runs through Lake Elsinore

By Andrew Paul Bettridge

Lake Elsinore –

Off road racing from Lucas Oil returned to Lake Elsinore during the middle of May. The new arrangements of the divisions for the series races with removal of Super Lite and Limited Buggy, down to regional races, made for a long exciting weekend of short course racing. Crashes in every division made the racing stretch on and on through the day, with most race vehicles losing most of their body panels.

Round 5 the wins went to Blaze Nunley in Jr1 Karts, Ricky Gutierrez in Jr2 Karts, Brock Heger in Mod Karts, Steven Greinke in Pro Buggy, Sheldon Creed in Pro Lite, Carl Renezeder in Pro4, and Brian Deegan in Pro2. The battle in Pro2 was heated. This was the first race since the Renezeder and Woods battle in rounds 3 and 4 in Las Vegas. Round 6 of racing on Sunday afternoon was fiery with the rollover crash and fire from Mike Porter in the Pro2 division. The wins in Round 6 went to Madix Bailey in Jr1 Karts, Hailie Deegan in Jr2 Karts, Myles Cheek in Mod Karts, Bradley Morris in Pro Buggy, Carl Renezeder in Pro4, RJ Anderson in Pro Lite, and Rob Maccachren in Pro2. This full weekend of body slamming, high flying, and fiery rollovers will continue back in Southern California for the Series race July 26-28 night races at Glen Helen Raceway.
