The Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) has made a long-awaited return for west coast fans of short course racing! Glen Helen Motorsports Park hosted round one and two for racers hungry to get back to competition amidst pandemic cabin fever. Competing in front of empty stands, was strange for BILSTEIN racers. The loyal LOORRS fan base had to follow the action from the safety of home with live stream video.

BILSTEIN racers flooded the Pro2 field with victories and podium finishes across the 2-round weekend format. Jerett Brooks opened up the inaugural round with a win in Pro2; “Feels great to be back at the track and even greater to start the season off with a win!” Carrying that momentum into round two, Brooks doubled down on his success. “What a weekend, capped it off with a sweep. Can’t thank my team enough for giving me such a fast truck, my partners, family and friends-fans that could all tune in from home! We definitely missed you all out here this weekend!” Brooks recalled.

BILSTEIN Racer Doug Mittag is usually found hustling a Pro4 around the track, running in Pro2 this season he locked down the silver spot in Pro2 while driving a borrowed truck for LOORRS round two. “The team and I are making huge strides toward the front of this Pro2 class. P3 in qualifying.” Mittag announced ahead of the race. “We had the speed to run up front today and I was able to pull off second place! Huge thanks to my team and sponsors!”

BILSTEIN racer Ryan Beat was fastest in practice heading into round one but continued to battle technical steering issues with the brand-new truck. Between rounds Beat and crew made a lot of changes overnight burning the midnight oil. “We laid down the top qualifying spot here at GlenHelen for round 2 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series.” Beat announced. In round 2 Beat fought his way from dead last to a podium 3rd place finish. “This weekend was a huge accomplishment for our team, we not only showcased our raw speed but were able to make huge strides forward in improving our Pro2 program.” Beat summarized.

BILSTEIN ProLite racer Cole Mamer grabbed the gold on LOORRS round 2 after running the fastest in practice and qualifying P1 both days. “Finally got the job done today! We had one goal this weekend and that was to leave the weekend with the points lead and win! We had the fastest truck all weekend long and finally got the job done! Huge thanks to all my sponsors to help make this happen.” Trey D. Gibbs had a memorable weekend, securing his first gold in the Pro Buggy category. “BILSTEIN shocks on the car were hooking up and soaking up all the bumps.” Gibbs reported.

On the East Coast, the Championship Off-Road Racing Series (CHAMP) rolled into rounds three and four at Dirt City Motorplex in Lena WI.
