Life changing events are moments that will forever be imprinted on our memories. Sometimes they are unexpected and sometimes they are planned for with months of advanced preparation. For professional short course off-road racer Jerett Brooks, he has had a heavy load during the off-season. While preparing for the 2019 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, Jerett has experienced multiple life-changing events and has done so with grace and charisma. As the days of 2019 click off, Brooks is more determined for success with one objective; win races in the #77 Rigid Industries / Bilstein / General Tire / KMC Wheels Pro 2.
“This off-season has been a huge change, to say the least! Buying a house, starting a desk job, having a baby on the way, and managing my race team, it all has been pretty crazy,” admitted Jerett. “So many things falling into place so fast. It’s going to be a little hectic, but I cannot wait to get this 2019 season started! I’m more determined to win than I have ever been.”
With a new season of short course around the corner, often new rules come with it. The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series has mandated DOT approved tires for the Pro 2 Truck Division, and that is leaving a field of unwary competitors with a blank slate of tire notes and big question marks. Brooks, on the other hand, has advanced knowledge and experience with race proven General Grabber X3 DOT Tires.
The General Tires Jerett’s #77 Rigid Industries Pro 2 will be racing on during the 2019 season are made up of the very same compound that Brooks raced with when he won back-to-back 2016 & 2017 Pro Lite Championships.
“My team and I have been putting in a ton of work getting ready for this 2019 season,” explained Jerett. “In the past, the Pro 2 gave us some struggles with the setup. A lot of off-season testing has gone down. The truck is super fast. Faster than it has ever been! I am very comfortable with where we are at and what we are doing. I feel like we have the total package with Rigid Industries, Bilstein, General Tire, KMC Wheels, FK Rod Ends, Black Rhino Performance, FiberwerX, Optima Batteries, Kroyer Racing Engines, CBR Performance, Fortin Racing, Caspers Concrete, Howe Performance, Oakley, Maxima Racing Oils & Synergy Electric all supporting the program. I am pumped and grateful to all of my partners who helped us get this truck up to speed.”
Brooks continued, “We have been throwing a lot at this Pro 2 this year, and I owe it to my dad Ron Brooks, Jon Hoffman, Nick Tennboun, and Luis Dominguez. We did our homework, and we are doing everything we can to win races and nail down a championship. It is without a doubt the best setup truck I’ve had, and I super pumped for this season to start up!”
