6/12/12 El Cajon, CA – Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park was the venue for Round 3 of the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series on Saturday, June 9, 2012. Mild temps along with moderate winds made for a great weekend.
The weekend started off with Bryan Osborn, driver of the #1 Black Rhino SR1, feeling very ill but he managed to make it out on the track for practice on Friday. That was it for the weekend though and Kenny Osborn, owner of Black Rhino, was able to find a last minute replacement driver, Sheldon Creed. Creed had never driven an SR1 but was up for the task. On Saturday qualifying he set the fastest lap on lap four, ultimately qualifying on the pole for the main later that day. During the main, Creed battled it out with the #825 of Fishback for 1st but by lap six he took the lead and held on until the end putting Black Rhino on the box for 1st. Osborn sits 3rd in Championship Points.
Gary Thompson in the #802 Thompson Roofing SR1 had a 3rd place car all weekend and finished 3rd in the main giving Black Rhino a double on the podium for Round 3 in the SR! Class. Thompson is 2nd in Championship Points.
Jessie Morgan in the #854 Black Rhino SR1 bicycled in practice on Friday in turn three but was able to regain her composure and keep going. In Saturday’s race mechanical failure on lap four took her out of the race.

Morgan ended the day with a 6th place finish and 8th in Points. “Thanks to all of my supporters, you make a difference and give me confidence. I had such a rad time; even though I didn’t win it’s great to be able to reach the goals I set for myself.” Morgan said.
Brandon Blyth in the #842 broke in Lap 5 of the main event when he came off the tabletop ending his day with a 5th place finish. Blyth is 7th in Championship Points.
In the J1 Karts, Jaydn Winbury in the Wagon Burners #202 qualified 6th and finished 8th in the main. He sits 4th in Championship Points.
Dylan Winbury driving the #469 Wagon Burners J2 Kart qualified 4th and went on to win it all with a 1st place podium finish in the main. Dylan sits 3rd in Championship Points.
