Feature 2

The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series rolled into Sparks, Nevada this week for the Toyota Silver State Showdown presented by Optima Batteries at Wild West Motorsports Park. Rounds 11 and 12 will take place on Friday (August 22) and Saturday (August 23) under the lights. The 1.3 mile track features over 100 feet of elevation changes and will showcase the highest of speeds throughout the entire season. This event is sure to deliver some of the most exciting battles we’ve seen all year.

Heading into rounds 11-12, here are some notes to keep in mind. Kyle LeDuc has won 8 races in a row and 9 out of 10 in the PRO4 class. He has a 57 point lead with 5 races remaining while he looks to close in on his second PRO4 championship in 3 years. Although his toughest of tests came in round 10 when he battled for a late race pass to secure his 8th win in a row, he’s proven that no challenge or bounty has been big enough to knock him off the top of the PRO4 mountain so far this year.

Bryce Menzies is coming off of a win at Glen Helen, his 3rd of the year, and is looking to build on his momentum heading into rounds 11-12.

Newest Torture Team member, Jeremy McGrath, is coming off his highest finish of the season. He recently took 2nd place at Glen Helen and is  looking to mix it up at the top of the standings.

New PRO2 young-gun RJ Anderson was the clocked at the fastest time after Thursday’s practice session, so he’ll be looking for podiums throughout the weekend. Myan Spaccarelli and Marty Hart will also be looking to build some momentum with 5 races remaining.

RJ Anderson, Casey Currie, Kyle Hart, and Ryan Beat are sitting 2nd-6th in the PRO LITE standings heading into rounds 11-12, with only 100 points between the 5 of them. Brandon Arthur, 9th in points, is coming off of a DOMINATING performance that landed him on the top of the podium at Glen Helen and is looking to build on that momentum.
