The 2012 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Season officially kicked off this past weekend at the Firebird Raceway in Arizona with our good friend Marty Hart #15 in the GearUp2Go/Ready Lift Pro 2 truck taking the top spot on Saturday. Marty Hart took the lead just before the mandatory caution and ran away from the field to take his first win in the Pro 2 Class.
“It’s a good way to start the season – new team, new truck, new spotter, new crew chief… Every single thing about this team is brand new,” said Hart after the first round races to a reporter. “We kind of wanted to come in and see where we’re going to shake out, where we stand. Obviously we’re not the fastest, but we’re a contender, and that’s what you have to go into a new season, wanting to be top 3, maybe. That’s where we established ourselves and we were lucky enough to get a win.”
GearUp2Go is proud of Marty’s efforts and congratulates Marty and the entire ReadyLIFT®/GearUp2Go Team on the first of many wins this season! GearUp2Go has a longstanding relationship with the Hart family and is very excited to be sponsoring Marty as well as his talented son Kyle who will commands his matching ReadyLIFT®/GearUp2Go #523 Modified Kart. Kyle achieved Rookie of the Year status last year and we are sure he will be adding many of his own trophies to the Hart family mantle this season.
