It's hard to grow grass in the desert. Some people just bring there own grass and trees.

Sheldon Creed Storms Into LOORRS Las Vegas Fighting Hard To Seal The 2012 SuperLite Championship In His Rookie Year
OCC Racing's Sheldon Creed leads the 2012 SuperLite points championship and is looking for a double win under the lights of Las Vegas Motor Speedway at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series this weekend.
—PRESS RELEASE—​

CORONA, CALIF., September 20, 2012 - Arriving in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Round 13 & 14 of LOORRS (Lucas Oil Off-Road Series), the young Sheldon Creed is focused on a double victory atop the SuperLite podium at this weekend's night race. In his debut LOORRS race weekend last year, it was 14-year-old Creed who climbed to the top of the SuperLite podium during Round 14. Since then, Sheldon Creed has been dominating the SuperLite class and currently leads the 2012 SuperLite Championship by 13 points.

The #74 SuperLite driver will battle it out among a class of experienced racers just north of the Las Vegas strip and Fremont Street this Friday, September 21st & Saturday, September 22nd—gates open to the public at 4pm, racing starts at 6pm. Well-versed for his age, Sheldon has centered his attention on strengthening his points lead. At Creed's advantage, this race destination is one that he favors and knows that he is able to win at. The track offers a mixture of fast and technical sections, which is just what Creed would have ordered up for his driving style if he had designed it himself.

Sheldon's father Scott Creed is happy to report, "Sheldon is maintaining a 3.2 GPA in his freshmen year of high school at Steel Canyon while consistently leading the 2012 points championship in SuperLite. We're proud of him." When the #74 driver is not in school or testing the race trucks, he is training on his motorcycle at RP Motocross Track. Riding helps keep Sheldon knowledgeable in the dirt reading lines outside of race day.

The A.M. Ortega Pro Lite will not be making the journey to Las Vegas, the team has been putting in a lot of hours to ensure that the truck will be perfect for Creed. Scott Creed says, "We've moved everything around; we're moved the radiator up behind Sheldon and we've also moved the transmission and the re-build motor. Sheldon will be testing the truck at the upcoming Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Race Series in Arizona this October." With lots of hard work and perseverance from the crew, they plan to have the Pro Lite racing for the Challenge Cup at next and final stop of the 2012 LOORRS race circuit in Firebird, Arizona.

About Sheldon Creed:
A 14-year-old, high school student with a stacked list of impressive career racing highlights under his belt on two- and four-wheels. Highlights include: 2011 Lucas Oil Regional SuperLite Champion, 2011 Lucas Oil Regional Modified Kart Champion, 2010 Lucas Oil JR 2 Kart Champion, 2009 Lucas Oil JR1 Kart Champion, 2009 Lucas Oil Modified Kart Champion, 2009 M4SX JR 1 Kart Champion, 2008 M4SX JR 1 Kart Champion, 2008 M4SX Modified Kart Champion, 2005 CMMC Stock 50cc 7-8 Champion Motocross Champion, 2005 CMMC Modified 50cc 7-8 Motocross Champion and over 21 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series wins. With a strong passion and solid focus for winning races, you can't go wrong assuming Sheldon is here to party with the big boys. If this were a poker game, it'd be a safe bet that the Creed isn't bluffing, he's made it this far and is here for business. Creed already has plans to contend in the Pro 2 Unlimited class by 2014.

Sheldon and team would like to thank their sponsors that make racing possible: A.M. Ortega Construction, Trench Shoring, Fox Racing Shox, Eibach Springs, Method Race Wheels.

Fremont was probably one of the coolest things I've done in our history of racing short-course.....there were TONS of people there, went through a TON of posters in the autograph session and afterwards....it was ridiculous. Seeing the trucks on the giant screen spanning the street was amazing - it definitely seemed that the crowd loved what they were seeing, and it gave us a chance to show people what our series is all about who might never have even known! Great job, LOORRS!!! Looking forward to tonight!!

Brakes and Exhausts Alight for Round 13 in Vegas

After a short four-week break, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, is back in action this weekend, with the LoanMart Fight Under The Lights. Yes, night racing is back, and for the first time in series history, it's happening in Vegas, as the terrific Las Vegas Motor Speedway once again hosts the series. This weekend marks Rounds 13 and 14 of the 2012 championship, and with only three rounds remaining this year, the strain for every precious point will only intensify from here on out. It was a beautiful night to be at the races this evening, with perfect balmy temperatures and just the faintest hint of a pleasant desert breeze, and fans flocked to the stands in droves to see some great racing. In case you couldn't be there, here's what you missed.


Pro 4 Unlimited
Throughout the season, eyes have been on short course icon Carl Renezeder, as he closed down on his 100th career short course off-road victory. Despite having one of the unluckiest seasons in recent memory, Renezeder has managed a couple of wins this year, and coming into this weekend, his next win would bring home to the historic milestone. Renezeder got the lead on lap three after early leader Kyle LeDuc encountered mechanical difficulties, and from there, Renezeder was simply untouchable. The #1 Lucas Oil/General Tire Nissan ran flawlessly, and no other driver could bring any challenge to Renezeder, as he pulled out a comfortable margin en route to a dramatic century mark win under the lights here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Second place was Eric Barron in the #32 Maxxis Tires/RC10.com Toyota, who also ran clean but couldn't answer the pace of Renezeder. Third through fifth places went to the LeDuc family, with Todd LeDuc nursing a wounded #7 Rockstar/Makita Ford home for third. Family patriarch Curt LeDuc got by his other son Kyle on the restart after the Competition Yellow, and held him off to the end to take fourth in his #43 KCHiLites/Toyo Tires Ford. Kyle LeDuc seemed to be fighting a possible transmission issue, but gave it his all through the checkers to take fifth in the #99 Monster Energy/Toyo Tires Ford.


Pro 2 Unlimited
Following on the heels of his historic centennial win, Carl Renezeder said he felt as though he could stop worrying about number 100, and get back to racing hard like he always had. Well, it didn't take long for the spotlight to shift away from that magical moment, as Renezeder climbed into his Pro 2 Unlimited, and put in his second dominating drive of the evening. Renezeder and his #17 Lucas Oil/General Tire Nissan were a force to be reckoned with, and the southern California driver had the lead coming out of turn one. Renezeder had his mirrors full of Rob MacCachren for much of the race, but when a temporary glitch on MacCachren's truck forced him briefly to the sidelines, Renezeder had a sizeable stretch of clear track behind him, as he cruised home to another big win. Renezeder seemed as though the pressure of that big number had been getting to him this season, but with the milestone reached, he's again looking like the driver that has seven season championships and 101 wins to his credit... his competition had better look out. Second went to Rob Naughton in the #54 Lunarpages Web Hosting/General Tire Ford, with Jeff Geiser taking third in the #44 Tap It Brewing Co./BulletProofDiesel.com Chevrolet, Patrick Clark fourth in the #52 Exotic Engine/General Tire Chevrolet, and Greg Adler fifth in the #10 4 Wheel Parts/Magnaflow Ford.


Pro Lite Unlimited
Tonight's Pro Lite Unlimited race was one that just couldn't be predicted, with incidents throughout the race that affected nearly every driver on the track. Noah Fouch started from pole and led through the Competition Yellow, but then rolled over on the restart lap, handing the lead to Casey Currie. Currie led for just a few corners, before Brian Deegan dove deep into turn eight, and forced Currie very wide as he moved himself into the lead in the #38 Rockstar/Makita Ford. Deegan's positioning also allowed RJ Anderson to get by Currie, but Currie passed Anderson back late in the running, and must've been gunning for any chance he could to pass Deegan back. As it happened, Currie's luck did come around, as on the final lap, Deegan bicycled and spun in turn one, dropping ten spots in the process. Currie sped into the lead in his #2 Monster Energy/General Tire Nissan, and roared home to what was obviously a very meaningful win for him. Anderson picked up second in his #37 Monster Energy/South Point Las Vegas Dodge, and Ryan Beat rounded out the podium in his #51 Lunarpages Web Hosting/Hart and Huntington Ford. Chad George moved a long way up through the field to take fourth in the #42 Discount Tire/Traxxas Ford, and Bradley Morris bounced back from an early race issue to finish fifth in the #24 GoldStar Asphalt!/K&N Ford.


Super Lite Unlimited
The penultimate race of the night was Super Lite, and has been the case so many times this season, this race was all about Sheldon Creed. For such a young driver, Creed has a great ability to put together perfect drives, and tonight's race was one such drive. Creed got the lead on lap two, and as those behind him battled for positions, Creed was left all alone up front in the #74 A.M. Ortega/BFGoodrich Tires truck. In the second half of the race, Creed opened up a comfortable gap to his pursuers, before then settling in to a quick and consistent pace that maintained his gap as he hurried home to his seventh win of the season. Behind Creed, another driver who put in a strong performance was Drew Britt in the #7 Universal Technical Institute/Quick Lane machine, who moved steadily through the field, before making an ambitious last lap place on then-second-placed Ryan Hagy to take the position away in the closing seconds of the race. Hagy had to settle for third by just a nose in his #27 General Tire/Valli Construction entry, with Jessie Johnson taking fourth in the #15 SoCal Super Trucks/Speed Energy truck, and Dawson Kirchner finishing fifth in his #18 Speed Technologies/General Tire machine.

It's been a very successful and enjoyable first night under the lights here in Las Vegas, and better still, we've got it all to do again tomorrow. Gates will once again open to the public at 4:00 pm, just in time for the first race of the afternoon: Junior 2 Kart. Opening Ceremonies will kick off a great evening of Pro class racing at 6:00 pm, followed by the first Pro class of the night, Pro 4 Unlimited, at 6:30 pm. Tonight was a great night with perfect weather for watching great short course off-road action with your family and friends, and tomorrow night promises more of the same, so call somebody and share an evening under the lights with Lucas Oil Off Road here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway; you won't regret it!
