Battles Rage At LOORRS Utah

For the fourth year, the Lucas Oil Offroad Racing Series took their show to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, and once again they delivered a great show to the fans. Every year seems to grow and grow with more fans packing the seats in the first class facility Miller has to offer. The drivers did their job as they battled hard with each other giving the fans their moneys worth.

In the Pro 4 race it looked to be the Carl Renezeder show once again but veteran Rob MacCachren found a clean way around him in turn 3 to take the lead. Luck wouldn’t be with MacCachren however, while in the lead he would catch a rut in turn 4 putting him on his roof. That opening let Renezeder regain the lead giving him 7 wins in a row in the Pro 4 class. Kyle Leduc would finish second and Eric Barron, who had some great back and forth with Greg Adler would take third.

Prolite once again had the largest entries this weekend and Justin “Bean” Smith, who took a much deserved third place, said it best, “If you get caught in the back half of the race its just total chaos back there.” RJ Anderson, who has been battling being sick all week including a trip to the hospital, took the top spot today showing that nothing will hold him back in his desire to win. “The Prodigy” Sheldon Creed would finish second after some hard driving with Brian Deegan in the last turn just behind Anderson.

The final race of the day in Pro 2 had some great racing action of its own. Before the race started track crew put a bit too much water down on the track so rather then give the racers a sloppy track, track officials made the decision to delay the start while crew worked on the front stretch and let racers run a few hot laps to burn in the track. Rob MacCachren would have redemption after his rollover in his Pro 4, taking the win and checking out from the rest of the group. That would leave everyone else to battle for the final two podium spots. Bryce Menzies who started on the pole would spin out on the first turn putting him to the back of the pack, but he would work his way through and finish 7th. Celebrating his daughters first birthday today, Greg Adler would give her a third place finish as a birthday present. Renezeder would finish second continuing his hot streak this season.
