BILSTEIN LOORRS Racers Triumph at Round One

BILSTEIN secures a pair of victories at Glen Helen

Opening weekend of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) is in the books! Saturday March 16, at Glen Helen Raceway, the Southern California sunshine, shown brightly on BILSTEIN racers Ryan Beat and Jerett Brooks. Defending Pro Lite champion Ryan Beat started the race in pole position – a result of his position from the 2018 season.

Wearing his #1 plate and full BILSTEIN-liveried body panels, Beat soared to a repeat of his winning streak, securing top podium position at the end of the day. Ryan Beat has announced the 2019 season as his last in Pro Lite before changing classes. With back-to-back championship wins in the class in 2016, 2017 and 2018, Beat hopes to double down his contribution and make it 4 Pro Lite wins for BILSTEIN in 2019. Confirming the dominant position of his racing program and BILSTEIN shocks in a field of competitors.

We caught up with Ryan Beat at his shop in the weeks preceding the first round, check out his preparation and game plan going into 2019.

In the Pro-2 category, Jerett Brooks was experiencing déjà vu as he locked down the first place in this first LOORRS round – a repeat performance of his inaugural run in the top 2-wheel-drive category last year. Brooks told us “We’re throwing a lot at this truck this year.”

A whole new BILSTEIN suspension setup was engineered to further the success of this past weekend. Testing and tuning are vital to the performance of race vehicle, check out Jerett’s prep work leading into the first round below.

In the Pro-Buggy class, Trey D. Gibbs made his way onto the podium in his AlumiCraft. Coming out of the world of Mod Kart, Gibbs secured the Rookie of the Year honors.
