With Lady Luck and Mother Nature not working together, LoanMart, the West Coast’s largest Auto Title Lender was still able to take home three podiums in a wet and wild weekend of racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, September 19th and 20th.
Scheduled for the weekend were Round 13 of the season on Friday and Round 14 on Saturday. Friday evenings races were set to be exciting as ever as former Pro Lite division Champ, RJ Anderson, was on the pole. The race, also featuring Ryan Beat for LoanMart, would be 14 laps of action packed racing. Ultimately LoanMart would finish with a third and fifth place finish as Beat took fifth, and Anderson landed his fifth podium of the year. The Pro Lite standings after Round 13 are now even closer together and currently see LoanMart’s Ryan Beat in seventh and RJ Anderson in third.
Of all the drivers on the LoanMart Racing roster, Pro 2 driver Patrick Clark is the only non-Californian; he is a native of Las Vegas. The infamous Las Vegas Motor Speedway, being his home track, would prove to be beneficial. Clark would qualify just two-tenths off the pole behind veteran driver Carl Renezeder. The 16 laps marathon would feature two LoanMart drivers, including local Patrick Clark and Pro Lite regular RJ Anderson. Both drivers would have a great race which saw the two young stars battling verse all the savvy experts, finishing with Patrick Clark in fourth place behind, Bryce Menzies, Rob MacCachren and Brian Deegan. Anderson would finish in a respectable fifth just behind Clark and Marty Hart.
The Pro 4 class which has not seen many changes over the course of the season saw a lot of shake ups this weekend in Las Vegas. LoanMart’s own Todd LeDuc would start the race in seventh place, looking to finish ahead of his own brother Kyle, who has won nine races. Todd would battle through the field and push his Monster Energy/ LoanMart Pro 4 to the podium with a third place finish, giving Leduc his first podium finish on the season ahead of his brother.
The final race on the schedule was the Pro Buggy race, which has continually proven to be some of the most fun racing in all the sport. Dave Mason Jr who drives the #65 LoanMart Pro Buggy would start the race in third place and challenge his competitors Chad George and Eric Fitch all 14 laps long. Mason would finish just four seconds behind George for the checkered flag, but take second place with his fourth podium of the season. This would give Mason only an 81 point gap with three races remaining for the coveted Championship lead.
With lightning storms and a lot of raining pouring onto the speedway on Saturday evening, Lucas Oil Off Road Officials would postpone the races for the night. Round 14 of the season will now be held during the final race weekend of the year, October 17-18, in Lake Elsinore, California in a triple header.
