Racers Bring The Heat To Lake Elsinore

As a fan of racing the most exciting stories are when two drivers battle all season and it comes down to the last race to determine the champion. Going into the final rounds next month that is exactly what will go down in Pro 4 as last night in Lake Elsinore Kyle Leduc took home the win which puts him dead even with Carl Renezeder for the points. At the start of the season a spring of bad luck looked like another championship would be out of reach for Leduc, but now in Arizona for the final round it will come down to whoever finishes in front of the other person.

Yesterday we talked how Rob MacCachren extended his points lead in Pro 2, and last night even though he didn’t land on the podium he clinched his championship early. Brian Deegan who is running a short season this year while running a full year in Global RallyCross is only coming out to win races since a championship is out of the question. After qualifying first earlier in the day Deegan started on the pole with MacCachren and grabbed the holeshot where he led the entire race. Rob Mac was by his side the first part of the race but spun out in turn one and couldn’t work his way back. The mistake let Carl Renezeder and Patrick Clark to try and track Deegan down but he had too much for them and took home the win.
