Showdown in the Desert for Team Renezeder this Weekend
LAKE FOREST, CA (April 14, 2010) – It’s back to warm weather racing for Team Renezeder as Carl and the crew head out to sunny Arizona, just thirty minutes north of Phoenix, for rounds three and four of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series this weekend.
“We’ve got some catching up to do,” commented Renezeder, with a bit of fire in his voice. “Fortunately, I like being the hunter.”
Seventeenth- and fifth-place finishes in the opening rounds will require the team to spend the remainder of the season chipping away at the top of the leader board race by race in order to keep a Pro-2 championship on the 2010 to-do list. The team is much better positioned in Pro-4 with two third-place finishes in rounds one and two, putting Renezeder third in points.
“We’ll stay focused race by race, fighting for a win each round,” explained Renezeder. “If we do that, the points will fall into place. We’re a big-picture team but not to the degree that it takes away from the moment. When I climb in my race truck and pull the belts tight, I’m thinking about how I’m going to get around the guy in front of me and then the guy in front of him. And this weekend in Surprise, we’ll have a great time chasing four more wins.”
The teams will qualify on Friday afternoon for Saturday afternoon’s racing, and then they’ll qualify again on Sunday morning for racing later that day. Gates open at 9:00 a.m. both days, with opening ceremonies scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and racing to follow the national anthem.
