Brandon Arthur Super Quick With Podium Finish and Fast Lap at Wheatland
Wheatland, MOProfessional off road racer, Brandon Arthur is literally living the dream for many twenty year old males. Hailing from Ramona, a rural community on the outskirts of San Diego County in Southern California, Brandon knows a thing or two about hard work. The ethics and value of a job well done has rewarded Arthur with the opportunity to race. The racing experience and success has afforded him a position to live, eat, sleep, and work as the full time mechanic, fabricator, race prepper, and also the driver of the #6 MAVTV, Stronghold Motorsports, Pro Traffic Services, Toyo Tires Pro Lite. Racing in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS), Brandon went to Wheatland Missouri for Rounds 4 & 5 where he earned a 2nd place finish and a Fast Lap Award.
Brandon showed up to Lucas Oil Speedway race ready and nailed the qualifying session with the fast lap time at 1 Minute and 20.755 Seconds. This setup positioned the MAVTV Pro Lite for an outside front row starting position for Round 4. “We got the start we needed to have a good weekend out here,” stated Brandon. “It was a great race with Ryan beat and Christopher Polvoorde the whole time. Going back and forth with everyone was a lot of fun. We ended up finishing with a 2nd place podium finish.”
Sunday morning saw torrential downpours flooding the track. It was all good, clear, and sunny through the qualifying session which ranked Arthur second fastest behind Ryan Beat and race winner from Round 4.
At first it was questionable if there was going to be any racing on Sunday at all. The LOORRS Race Officials were determined to put on the show for the fans at Lucas Oil Speedway and opted to shuffle the schedule placing the Pro Lite Race near the end of the day. It was a go and the race was predictably sloppy with unpredictable results.
“The track was not in horrible shape when it came to our race,” admitted Brandon. “We started out great and in the lead. There was a couple of corners that were really slippery but my Toyo Tires still hooked up and ended up leading into some contact, which resulted in a black flag. I came out on the track way back in 6th position. The track was not letting us push hard and just couldn’t make any passing at this point. We had a really fast truck and got the Optima Battery Fast Lap Award (fastest lap of the race) but I couldn’t move up in position. We ended up coming home with a 5th place finish but not really where we wanted to be.”
Brandon Arthur is known for racing very competitively and always very clean. Racing for the win is one thing but wrecking ball racing is not Arthur’s style. At this level of professional off road racing you give it your all without taking out the competition. With the 2nd place podium, a Top 5 Finish, and the Fast Lap Award, Brandon Arthur now sits third in the 2018 Pro Lite Championship points ranking and only one point away to tie for second.
For Brandon Arthur and the MAVTV, Stronghold Motorsports, Pro Traffic Services, Toyo Tires, KMC Wheels, HRT Motorsports, Competitive Metals, FOX, Safety-Kleen, FK Rod Ends, STEEL-IT, Baja Designs, Magnaflow, FiberwerX, Performance Plus Lubricants, F&L Racing Fuels, Heatshield Products, Heatwave Visual, Buggy Whip, ECP Powder Coatings, Howe Performance, Wirefab, Bink Designs, Benchmark Performance, Redline Performance team it is time to prepare for the Silver State Showdown and Round 6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series taking place 1 day only on July 21 in Sparks, Nevada at the Wild West Motorsports Park.
