Word must of got out after yesterdays great racing at the Wild West Motorsports Park, as today LOORRS filled the grandstands once again with fans. High winds threatened to have a repeat of last year where a few teams canopies got destroyed, but the only thing flying through the air today was great racing.
Kyle Leduc swept the weekend in Pro 4 winning once again after passing Carl Renezeder in turn one with a few laps to go. The two would battle hard the whole race but Leduc ran his lines clean and Renezeder couldn’t get by him. Leduc would also get fast lap and qualify first both days completing the weekend sweep. Greg Adler would finish third after ringing his bell yesterday in his crash with Eric Barron.
In Prolite Bradley Morris once again took the top spot, edging out Brian Deegan and fellow Maxxis Tire teammate RJ Anderson. Anderson would get pushed back to 11th place on the second lap, but in RJ fashion each lap he picked off another competitor and just ran out of time and had to settle for bronze. Deegan just never had an answer for the young gun and once Morris took the lead early in the race, Deegan could only follow the leader. Top qualifier out of 20 Prolites was Noah Fouch, but after some contact off a jump sent him for a ride, he wouldn’t be able to continue the race.
If championships were based off winning percentages, Bryce Menzies would be your Pro 2 champ. In four rounds since driving Stronghold Motorsports Pro 2, Menzies has won two of those, showing he is one of the fastest Pro 2 drivers out there today. After qualifying first and having no inversion, Menzies would start up front along side Brian Deegan. From turn one onwards Menzies wouldn’t look back and crossed the finish line first. At first he seemed to be pulling away with it but Deegan found and extra gear and in the last few laps inched closer and closer to Menzies bumper. Fast lap went to the always fast Rob MacCachren giving Rockstar two podium spots.
Next up for the Lucas Oil Offroad Racing Series is racing under the Las Vegas lights in another night race as Las Vegas Motor Speedway September 19th and 20th.
