Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series Presented by Kartek – Race Recap Rd1 Glen Helen

Building on its momentum from 2012, the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series came into 2013 full steam ahead. With classes ranging from children to adult and stock to custom built, the series has the ability to draw competitors ranging from those who simply seek the thrill of competition, to those with aspirations of racing professionally.

Round 1 of the 2013 Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series kicked off this past weekend at Glen Helen Raceway. Under blue skies and an ideal temperature, a record number of racers and fans came out for the racing action.

As is usual, the main attraction of the weekend belonged to that of the competitors in the Method Race Wheels Pro Open division. From the first lap of qualifying, to the last lap in the main event, it was all AM Ortega’s Sheldon Creed. The young racer from Alpine, CA is the reigning LOORRS SuperLite Champion and showed that he is ready to step up into the ProLite division.  Joining Creed on the podium was rising star and multi time regional and national Champion Myles Cheek. Driving the Metal Mulisha backed #57 ProLite, Myles showed he has what it takes to run up front. Rounding out the podium was the #85 of Mikey Lawrence.

With a total of 19 classes competing, the real surprise of the weekend was the record turnout in the Walker Evans Racing Stock RZR XP UTV Class. Starting out as an idea last year, the Walker Evans Racing Stock RZR XP UTV Class has quickly become one of the most competitive and deepest fields in the series. Within a few short months, the RZR XP class has added over a dozen new competitors. Expect that number to continue to grow as the season goes on.

From the resounding success of the season opener, 2013 is picking up right where 2012 left off. More racers; more fans; and more sponsors. All reasons to come out and be a part of the 2013 Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series.

Lucas Oil would like to thank all of the sponsors who have stepped in to support grassroots short course racing!
