LAS VEGAS – (Nov. 10, 2010) – The beautiful sunny and clear Las Vegas weather didn’t disappoint this weekend, and neither did the action-packed Round 13 and 14 races of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Nov. 6 and 7.
The Round 13 Pro 2 Unlimited race Saturday saw an intense neck-and-neck battle for first place between two members of Team General Tire, Carl Renezeder and Robby Woods. Woods and Renezeder led the pack for the entirety of the race, creating a daunting gap for rest of the drivers to overcome. After several turns, Renezeder pushed hard to take first position from Woods in turn eight and held the lead till the race’s end, taking home first place with Woods in second. Woods celebrated his first podium finish in 2010. The extreme action continued at the Pro 4 race Saturday where Renezeder made his mark once more, stealing second in the final lap.
On Sunday, Renezeder and Woods continued their attack on the competition, taking second and third respectively in Pro 2. Renezeder led the pack in Sunday’s Pro 4 race, but was forced to pull off the track in the final lap due to issues with his truck. In the Round 14 Superlite race, Jeff “Ox” Kargola battled his way from the back to take an impressive third place, but in the last lap, he was hit and landed sideways in a dead-stop. Suffering an injured right leg, Ox was taken off the track by ambulance. Kyle Kirchner was able to grasp the second place podium in the Superlite class on General Grabber AT2 tires. The Superlite class has proven to be one of the most exciting classes to watch, with intense battles throughout the races.
All-in-all, it was a thrilling weekend for Team GT at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, ending with an incredible six podium finishes.
