Lucas Oil Offroad Regional Series California – Lake Elsinore 10-11-2014
It seems like lately we have had a string of broken axles, and this weekend would continue on that same path. Friday during practice the car worked great, we had the setup very good and didn’t change much of anything other than tire pressure. The most exciting part of the day would for sure have to be the opportunity to watch Johnny and CJ Greaves tear up the track in their Pro4 and Pro2 trucks. Just hearing the sound of those Toyota motors ripping around the track is like nothing else you can experience unless you witness it first hand!
Saturday qualifying we were all set to try and put ourselves in a good starting position, but like I mentioned these dang broken axles keep biting us. I stayed out on track to at least get some line choices figured out and a little more seat time, but we ended up having to start on the last row. When it came time to race we had the car back together and running great! During the first half of the race I was able to pick off drivers one-by-one and work my way up towards the front. in the late stages of the race we were battling for podium positions and the axle gremlins came to get us again! I was able to finish the race in 7th, but had driven very well and hoped for much more. In the end it was a huge positive to move forward knowing that my driving and the RZR had improved 10-fold.
Thanks to my dad for all his hard work and dedication, Shayna for keeping us well fed and energized, Glenn, Karen, Melissa, and everyone else for all coming out and supporting Team Supercuts, and of course our awesome sponsors, Supercuts, UTV Wolfpack, UPR.com, GMZ Race Products, Element 7 Graphics, Utopia Optics

Special thanks to all partners and supporters:
We were very excited about coming back out to the night races at Glen Helen for the 2 to last round of the Lucas Oil Offroad Regional Series in So. California. Testing the for a few weeks prior to the event had the car working great and we canted to show how well we could perform racing the best in the business. Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to show our speed, we got one lap out in practice and a Rod Bearing spun in the motor and ended our weekend promptly.
Once we knew we could not participate we helped out the rest of the team and tuned their cars and helped get them ready for the racing! Turning a bad situation into something positive we drove down to San Diego and were able to meet with my sister and eat at our favorite breakfast spot in Del Mar, right next to the beach before heading back to the monsoons in AZ.
All in all a bad weekend turned out great and we had a blast seeing family, great friends, and all of our racing family as well.
