We’ve reached many pivotal turning points for our culture. However, many go unnoticed and uncelebrated. As the first Lucas Oil Short Course event comes to Estero Beach, in Ensenada this weekend, we are at one of those moments. Off-road racing as we know and celebrate it today would not be here without Mexico. In 1962 when Dave Ekins and Billy Robertson Jr. completed the first peninsula run from Tijuana to La Paz, they birthed an idea that later spawned a culture.  What led to everything we have today could not have happened in any place other than Baja California, Mexico.

In 1970 in the northern woods of Wisconsin, a bunch of racers got together and created the first ever “Brush Run” that eventually led to the establishment of the infamous Crandon International Raceway. Although the first vehicles were crude “run what you brung” type vehicles, it didn’t take long for midwest races to adapt the vehicle design and technology that was being used out West to develop a whole new form of short course racing. The “Brush Run” eventually led to the SODA series which included Crandon, Bark River, Lake Geneva Raceway, Red Bud MX Track and many more. The SODA series was televised on ESPN during the 80’s and 90’s.

Then, in 1979 Mickey Thompson decided to bring desert racing to the masses rather than “being seen by nothing but cactus and jackrabbits” and formed the Mickey Thompson Series starting with the Los Angeles Coliseum. Under Mickey Thompson’s leadership, off-road had its “Golden Years” with tons of spectators and unparalleled television coverage on ESPN, TNT and CBS.

In 1998, CORR evolved out of the SODA series and brought outdoor short course racing to the West coast reining for nearly ten years with tracks in Primm, NV, Glen Helen, CA, Chula Vista, CA, and more. CORR was also able to get mainstream coverage of short course off-road racing to millions of fans on TV via their coverage on SPEED and game changing epic live coverage on NBC.

In 2009 Lucas Oil picked up the pieces and built a solid short course off-road racing league, the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS). Now we are in the enviable position of having six consecutive successful years of short course, with LOORRS growing every year. Lucas has had consistent TV coverage on NBC, CBS and MAV TV, reaching millions of new fans. The challenge now is not stability, rather expansion.

Targeting the fastest growing segment of the population of America (Hispanics) via racing in the third largest city in Baja is an obvious next move. Not to mention the fact that 30 million people a year pass through Baja via Tijuana, the busiest land border crossing in the world. So, if we can convert a small percentage of those people to off-road racing enthusiasts, we have a game changer.

Larger Size Combination Wrenches Now Available in 20MM to 24MM and 13/16” to 1-1/4”

SPARKS, MD (July 28, 2015) – GearWrench®, a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, known for tools that deliver speed, strength, and access, today announced the availability of 11 new open stock combination ratcheting wrenches to its highly regarded 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrench line.

GearWrench 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches feature numerous advantages, including:

Superior Access
120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches have double-stacked pawls that deliver 120 positions and a three-degree swing arc. They also have a narrow ratchet-end width and thickness, allowing technicians to reach fasteners in tight clearance situations.

Greater Reach
120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches feature a beam design that’s longer for greater reach in confined areas. The open end is narrower and both ends have reduced outside dimensions, making this tool a must-have for working on fasteners in cramped locations.

Flexibility and Versatility
The Universal Spline drive design means technicians need only one tool to work on several different style fasteners, including: spline, 12-point, 6-point, e-torx, square and rounded 6-point. Dual Direction Surface Drive® on the open end provides better grip and reduces fastener rounding.

Speed
Both sides of each wrench have highly visible, recessed color size markings to help technicians easily identify the correct wrench to get jobs done quickly.

Strength
All 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches exceed ASME performance requirements.

End users can now purchase the following new 120XP™Universal Spline XL Combination Ratcheting Wrench sizes:

July 12th, 2015 GLEN HELEN, CA:  Both ULTRA4 drivers and fans lucked out last weekend with below average temperatures for the 5th Annual 4 Wheel Parts Glen Helen Grand Prix.  The event continues to be the largest ULTRA4 regional race in the series with nearly 120 cars registered in 7 classes.  Loren Healy continues to be the man to beat in the 4400 unlimited class. It’s been almost a year to the day since Healy debuted his new IFS #67 car with a win at Glen Helen, and Healy showed up in San Bernardino prepared to defend that win.

2009 King of The Hammers winner, #76 Jason Scherer had the fastest lap in qualifying by nearly 5 seconds winning the Billet Rifle Systems Hot Shot Award.  #67 Loren Healy and #321 Tom Wayes both lead their prelims Saturday morning  which had Healy on the pole and Wayes starting just seconds behind him for the 40-car main event.  Early in the race, competition was tight with Healy leading the pack.  Many cars succumbed to mechanical failures in the first hour of the two hour long race.  Healy too had to stop for a tire change and Wayland Campbell took the lead in his new-to-him single seat IFS car.  After several laps and Wayland experiencing some mechanical issues of his own, Healy regained the lead and never looked back. The Red Dragon once again proving unstoppable in a regional race.  When the checkered flag dropped, it was #67 Loren Healy in 1st, #966 Jason Blanton in 2nd and #27 Jon Cagliero 3rd. This was both Blanton and Cagliero’s first time nabbing a podium finish in an ULTRA4 event.

Nearly 40 cars entered the track in the multi-class limited race which began with a moment of silence for two ULTRA4 team members that had passed since the last ULTRA4 race, driver for the #689 car, Cody McBride, and crew chief for the #4540 car, MoparNorm Layton. The limited race was lead by motocross legend Ricky Johnson in a 4700 spec car. He and fellow spec car driver Bailey Cole would battle it out throughout the race with #4748 Johnson taking 1st, #4703 Cole 2nd and  #4708 Rowdy Trubenbach taking 3rd for the spec class. In the 4500 modified class, the Beast from the East, #4580 Jordan Townsend dominated and earned first followed by #13 Justin Hall and #4540 Mike Bedwell  in third after overoming multiple mechanical issues to take his first podium in ULTRA4. In the 4800 legends class, the racing was tight throughout the hour and a half main event with the majority of the cars traversing the track in a tight pack throughout the race. Ultimately, Dave Schneider in the 4871 took the checkered followed by #4823 Jade Wickham and #444 Rick Waterbury in 3rd. In the 4600 class, #4612 Ben Varozza, who is no stranger to the podium, clinched another first place with #4696 Sean MacNamara in 2nd and #4672 Brian Hays taking 3rd.

17 UTVs raced at Glen Helen making it one of the largest UTV races outside of King of The Hammers for ULTRA4 Racing.  John Duckworth took the checkered flag in the pro class, with Buzz Bronsema in 2nd and newcomer to the UTV class, JP Gomez clinching 3rd. In the UTV Sportsman class, Brendan Child scored his first ULTRA4 win, followed by Brian Hogue and Nathan Unruh.

In the Nitto National Championship series Derek West has continued to consistently finish in the top 5 maintaining a significant lead in points over Shirley and Wayland Campbell.  Next week’s Sturgis Off Road Blowout will be the first time the majority of the series points leaders have completed 3 regional races. The Nitto National Championship consists of the Nitto King of The Hammers, 3 best regional races and the Nitto National Championship, and after next week’s race the race for the championship will be on, with the top drivers striving to gain points before Nationals in October.

The next race in the ULTRA4 Nitto National Championship will be next weekend’s Sturgis Off Road Blowout July 31st and August 2nd. The next Trail-Gear regional race is the Fallon 250 at the end of August. For more information on ULTRA4 Racing please visit www.ultra4racing.com?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss

Off-road racing legend Rod Hall is known for being a pioneer of off-road racing.  Finishing first in class at the inaugural NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally in 1967 (the race now known as the SCORE International Baja 1000), Hall returned two years later in a Ford Bronco built by Bill Stroppe and won the legendary race overall. Hall went on to become a stalwart of off-road racing racing in Baja for 47 years straight, stringing 35 consecutive race wins together in the early 1980s and creating the longest unbroken streak of race victories in off-road racing history.

At 78 years of age, Hall’s 160+ major event wins makes him one of the most successful off-road racers of all time. Come meet Rod at his hometown of Reno, NV as he prepares to return to off-road racing one more time in his newly restored original ‘69 Ford Bronco built by Bill Stroppe. Watch Rod return to Baja, California to race the NORRA Mexican 1000, a race which catapulted his career.  Listen to the story of how he fell in love with off-road racing and turned it from a passion to a career.

For Hall, winning races was where his job began.  Hall became an advocate for the BFGoodrich Tires brand early in his career, building a strong relationship that has lasted today. He has driven more off-road race miles than any man today and he has done all this on BFGoodrich Tires.Photography by Vincent Knakal of Mad Media
