SuperLite Driver Chad Leising Looks To Secure His Championship
Short Course Racing is heating up and it is not because of summer temperatures, global warming, or rival organizations competing with their best foot forward. Nope, it has to do with the insane wheel-to-wheel offroad action that can be witnessed at any event Lucas Oil Off Road Racing puts their name on. Some of the most heated competition is found within the SuperLite Series.
Designed to be an affordable entry level platform to get into short course off road racing, the talent level and programs participating in this class is anything but entry level. Now do not get it twisted, SuperLite Racing is available to just about anyone with “Arrive & Drive” opportunities available. Just understand you will likely be chasing the dust from the skilled front runners.
These front runners who are leading the 2009 SuperLite Series Points Race consist of the Speed Technologies’ John Harrah leading with 191 points, and a 2nd place tie between SuperLite Champion Chad Leising and Johnny Harrah at 174 points each. Leising established his 2nd place seat by winning the last round of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing at Surprise AZ.
Chad Leising and his #17 SuperLite was given the opportunity to prove his worth to PMG during the first rounds of LOORS at Primm. On a shoe string budget, the reigning champion put it all on the line and took home a hard earned 2nd place during Round 1. With Chad’s arrangement with the PMG Team secured, Leising went on the hunt at Surprise AZ and brought Premiere Motorsports Group their first 1st place victory and 8th podium finish of 2009.
