Pro4 – For Sunday’s Pro4 race survival was the name of the game as less than half of the field managed to finish. At the start, there were twelve competitors, and Huseman, Renezeder and Cenni lead the pack. After only a couple of laps, Curt Leduc, Daugherty and Johnson were finished. Johnson’s vehicle caught fire causing a full course stop. Kyle Leduc had a flat and limped into the hotpits a lap down.
Meanwhile, the Lucas Oil Racing Series points leader, Rick Huseman, was running away with the race until he suddenly lost his rear drive shaft and had to rely on only front wheel drive to try and finish the race. Most of the remaining field rapidly passed him with Carl and Cenni taking the lead. On the final lap, Carl’s truck pulled off in turn seven with heavy smoke and Cenni cruised in for the hard earned win. He was followed by Travis Coyne, who has managed to podium the last three races in a row, and amazingly Rick Huseman managed a third place finish as his vehicle limped through the checkered flag. In the end only 6 vehicles managed to finish the race.
1. Adrian Cenni
2. Travis Coyne
3. Rick Huseman
ProLite –Unfortunately the ProLite class has lacked excitement this season as the racing has suffered from a lack of competition. Deegan, Brandt and Hart are the main competition for the podium every race, and this race got off to the usual sight of the three of them in the lead at the start of the race. Brandt ran into electrical issues and eventually had to pull out of the race.
That left it up to Deegan and Hart to race for the finish. Deegan opened up a sizeable lead, as he ran a flawless race, and Marty Hart never had an opportunity to catch up. Corey Sisler, who started on the poll for the race, did an admirable job of staying out of trouble and finished in third.
1. Brian Deegan

Pro2 – The Pro2 class has been the highlight of the LOORS series with competitive races and serious talent to be found throughout the field of 18 competitors. Only problem is; if Rob MacCachren is on the poll he runs such tight lines and makes so few mistakes that it’s almost impossible to get by him. That’s the way the race set up with MacCachren up front and the rest of the pack battling for second and third place.
Brian Deegan, racing in only his second Pro2 race managed to hold down second for a good portion of the race with Carl Renezeder and Robby Woods hot on his heels. Deegan showed a bit of nerves as he cut too much on turn seven and lost momentum allowing Renezeder and Woods to pass. Further back in the pack there was some serious banging going on as Rodrigo Ampudia and Rob “Fig” Naughton got into it several times. There was some excitement at the end of the race when Woods went up on two wheels and Deegan shortened the distance for third place. On turn seven Deegan went to the inside and banged into Woods, but Woods had more momentum coming out of the turn and managed to hold down third place. An exciting end to an exciting day of racing in Las Vegas.
