Pro Power Drivers Shine Bright!
November 12, 2013) Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series Pro-2
and Pro-4 competed in 30 races separate & 1 race together.
Pro Power drivers would stand on the podium 33 times including
8 wins in the ultra competitive ground pounding fire breathing
short course trucks. Kyle LeDuc’s Monster Ford and Marty
Hart’s Readylift Ford would lead the Pro Power charge
with 3 wins each and more than a dozen fast laps. Carl Renezeder’s
Lucas Oil Pro-4 and Greg Adler’s 4 Wheel Parts Pro-4 would
also reach the top of the box. Great job to all the 2013 Pro
Now on to the 2013 Lucas Oil Challenge Cup...
Pro-2’s would receive one half lap head start and Bryce
Menzies would shoot to the race lead with Robby Woods and Brian
Deegan in tow. Eric Barron would lead the Pro-4 class until
Kyle LeDuc ran Barron down and powered pass him on the long
back stretch running over 3/4 of a second faster as he looked
to repeat his cup win of 2010. Soon after passing #32 Toyota,
Kyle would receive contact to his left rear in turn 2 and then
Eric would grab gears and throttle through ending Kyle’s
day despite running a 47.889, almost a second faster than race
leader Byrce Menzies Red Bull Pro-2.
After the yellow, the Pro-2 head start would disappear
and the Pro-4 would receive a free shot at the Pro-2 field.
Bryce would lead to the green at lap 9 but Robby’s Chevy
powered Pro-2 would shoot the inside of turn one and drive away
to turn two where Bryce came up lame and ended his day. Yellow
after yellow, Robby would dodge bullets from Deegan and also
hard contact from Renezeder’s Pro-4 when his brakes failed
in turn 4, only to spin himself out of the race. With only a
green, white, checkered ahead Robby Woods would lead the field
to green followed by Deegan’s Pro-2 and Barron’s
“open wheel modified” due to repeated heavy contact
during the Cup battle.
Deegan and Woods would race clean through turn
one and in to turn two but out of turn 2 Deegan would receive
the chrome horn and Barron would use his Pro-4 to push the Rockstar
up and over the Matterhorn jump ‘no touch zone’
leaving Robby’s Pro-2 truck to run away to the white flag
and maybe his first ever truck win. Woods ran clean through
1 & 2 but Barron would shoot to his inside of turn 3 and
Robby’s one and only Barron experience would knock him
out of the lead and back to 3rd behind Deegan. Robby fought
back but at the line it would be Barron, Deegan and Woods.
Soon after the checkers, Barron would be black flagged for
rough driving throughout the Cup event and the final contact
which robbed Wood's of his first win. After a great battle Brian
Deegan would go home $30,000 richer winning the Lucas Oil Cup
for the second time. Robby Wood’s VP fueled truck would
receive the $15,000 runner up check. Thanks to everyone at Lucas
Oil and MavTv for a great 2013 season. See you next year!
