PHOENIX, Ariz. – (Dec. 16, 2010) – Team General Tire’s 2010 off-road racing season culminates in solid finishes, with Carl Renezeder taking second in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series Pro 2 Unlimited battle Dec. 11th, and tacking on a third-place victory in the Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup Dec. 12th at Phoenix’s famed Firebird Raceway.  On Saturday, Team GT’s Robby Woods took home third place in Pro 2 Unlimited and also in the LOORRS Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup, Dawson Kirchner took second in Superlite on General Tire Grabber AT2 tires and Team GT’s Jeff “Ox” Kargola took fourth in Superlite on Saturday.  

The roar of the off-road racing season may be coming to a lull, but it was far from silenced at this weekend’s LOORRS event.  Under the glare of the Arizona sun, Renezeder made his mark at Saturday’s Pro 2 Unlimited race, the final race of the day.  Renezeder and Team GT’s Robby Woods were at the front of the pack, with Woods in hot pursuit of the lead.  After Woods nearly spun out and slid across the track, Renezeder took second position, pushing Woods into third.  Even with a rock lodged in his shifter, Renezeder was able to maintain his second place spot till he crossed under the finish line.  Woods finished third, for an almost-podium sweep by Team GT.

But Renezeder’s weekend wasn’t over.  The Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup – notorious for its cut-throat competition and praised for its epic pay-out – was still to be conquered.  The Challenge pits 12 Pro 2 drivers and 14 Pro 4 drivers against each other in the ultimate battle for the winner’s $30,000 purse.  Sunday’s much-anticipated battle didn’t disappoint.  Renezeder drove hard, charging the competition to take third in the grisly race that saw just 15 drivers make it to the finish line. Renezeder took home $7,500 for his third-place spot in the Cup.

This has been a remarkable off-road season for General Tire,” said Travis Roffler, General Tire director of marketing.  “Team GT drivers have taken countless podiums this year and this is exactly how we wanted to finish out our year.  I couldn’t be more excited to see the fury Team GT unleashes in 2011.”

The Superlite class has proven to be an extremely exciting class for spectators to watch.  Team GT’s Jeff “Ox” Kargola, in his rookie season, also stirred up the competition Saturday, earning a fourth place spot in Superlite. Dawson Kichner, also in Superlite, took home a second on the famed General Grabbers AT2 tires.
