Race Report: Lucas Regoinals CA – Round 1 – Glen Helen
This weekend was a great start to the 2015 season! Having the races live streamed on LiveTrackFeed.com, hanging out with all of our friends, and of course racing!!!
We had a rough time in qualifying and ended up having to start 22nd on the grid of 32 drivers. The largest turnout of all the classes, so it was a battle royal! Our goal was to drive fast but also avoid all the carnage up to the mid race caution flag, then drop the hammer and move as far forward as possible…it worked out a bit different as there were so many people crashing we had numerous caution flags and only 7 laps at race pace.
We were able to work from the 22nd starting position up to 7th (about 6 inches from 6th place at the line. I was happy with the result, but would always like to be on the podium. Our Supercuts RideNow Powersports Rockstar Energy Drink US UTV Wolfpack Polaris RZR with GMZ Race Products Inc. Tires and Trinity Racing Exhaust worked great!!! I think with a better starting position and cleaning up a few things in my driving that we will be able to run towards the front of the pack this season. A huge thanks to my Dad for all his hard work, Ryan Shumaker and Jessica Rae Martinez for driving all the way to California on Valentines Day to come watch the races!
UTV World Championship is this coming weekend, new format, new race, and a Poker Run with Nate Ramsden and Cindi Karwoski on Friday, can’t wait! See you all at the races!
Thanks to Jim Beaver for having me on the Down and Dirty Radio Show this morning!

It was great talking to the kids at Apollo Middle School about racing and letting them get inside the race car. Each student had their own questions about racing and some even had experience in a RZR! What a great way to spend my birthday!!! Thanks again to Mr. Rodriguez for having me out.
