ROCKSTAR MAKITA OFF-ROAD TEAMS READY TO TAKE ON COMPETITION IN ARIZONA HEAT
Drivers converge on Surprise, AZ for Rounds 5-6 of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series
This Saturday, May 19, the Rockstar Makita off-road teams of Rob MacCachren, Todd LeDuc and "The General," Brian Deegan head to Speedworld Off Road Park in Surprise, Arizona for Rounds 5 and 6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) to do battle in their Rockstar Makita Ford trucks.
Brian Deegan works his way through some heavy traffic at Lake Elsinore last month.
Located just outside of Phoenix where sunny weather is guaranteed for the weekend, the track features sweeping turns, two huge table top jumps, and rugged moguls that have earned the respect of drivers.
The Rockstar Makita BF Goodrich team of Rob MacCachren and Todd LeDuc will be competing in the Pro 2 class and Pro 4 class respectively. 2012 has been a great year for Rob MacCachren, the busiest man in off-road racing. He is coming off winning the last LOORRS short course race at Lake Elsinore and has another podium finish after four rounds of racing to put him fourth in series points in the premier Pro2 Unlimited class.
Todd LeDuc has been a model of consistency thus far this season as he has been on the Pro 4 podium at nearly every race so far. Todd currently sits second in points and will be looking to close the gap on first with a win this weekend.
Brian Deegan will be an action as well in both the Pro 2 class battling against Rob MacCachren and in the Pro Lite Unlimited class. Deegan is the defending champ in both classes and currently sits in 3rd place in Pro 2's. "The General" is coming off a win in both classes at Lake Elsinore and is hungry for more. Look for Deegan to put his Rockstar Makita Metal Mulisha Ford trucks up on the podium in both classes.
If you are going to be in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area this weekend you won’t want to miss out on the live racing action. If not, tune into SPEED Channel on Sunday, May20 @ 3pm Pacific to catch the TV coverage from the race.
