RJ Anderson Does the
Double in his RANGER RZR at Round 1 and 2 of the
Lucas Short Course Season Opener
Minneapolis, March 10, 2010–The 2010 Lucas
Off Road Side-by-Side short course season kicked
off with a bang this past weekend at Las Vegas
Motor Speedway with Polaris team driver RJ
Anderson taking first in Saturday’s Round 1.
Anderson, had a tight battle with the leader
until the last lap when the leader’s engine let
go, letting Anderson cruise to victory with a 19
second margin over second place. Tyler Parks
finished third, also in a RANGER RZR.
“I had so much fun out there today,” said
Anderson. “This is the first time we raced at
this track and it took me a while to determine
the best lines, but by half way mark I had it
Sunday’s Round 2 started off with a soggy
track after heavy rain the night before. The
“Unlimited UTVs” were lined up along with an
experimental class that featured Side-by-Side’s
fitted with 150 horsepower motorcycle engines.
But despite stiff competition, the combination
of driving skill, Kroyer power and the RANGER
RZR’s four wheel drive allowed Anderson to again
take the top spot on the podium on Sunday.
“With all of the rain we thought the track
was going to be really slippery, but my RANGER
RZR hooked up real well,” Anderson said.
Anderson also had the fastest lap on Sunday
with time of 1:18.83 and with his two victories
he takes a commanding lead in the championship.
The next rounds of the Lucas Off Road Racing
Series takes place at Speedworld Off Road Park,
in Surprise Arizona, on April 17 and 18.
