Las Vegas, NV (5/20/10) – The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) returns to Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) in Las Vegas, NV for rounds 5 & 6 on May 22nd and 23rd 2010. Team Muzzys/Kawasaki driver Robert “Bobby” VanBeekum is ready to take his place at the top of the podium in the Unlimited UTV class at LOORRS and ready to position himself for a championship run.
VanBeekum in his Muzzys/Kawasaki Teryx is currently 3rd in points in the Unlimited UTV division, behind only RJ Anderson and reigning Unlimited UTV Champion Chad George. Only 9 points separate VanBeekum from the first place Anderson. This means that Bobby VanBeekum can put his Muzzys/Kawasaki Teryx on top of the point’s standings with a solid performance in Las Vegas.
After LOORRS rounds 3 & 4 Bobby and the teams “horsepower prospector” Rob Muzzy of Muzzys Performance, set out to improve the power and performance of their 800cc Muzzys/Kawasaki V-Twin Teryx engine. The team headed to Rob Muzzy’s home of Bend, OR where the Muzzys Performance team began work on a new port design, new throttle body set up, and new cams. The goal for the team was to increase the top end of an already fast UTV while increasing the strength and reliability. Las Vegas will be the testing ground for the month of hard work put into the Muzzys/Kawasaki Teryx. With a little bit of luck and a lot of hard racing VanBeekum and his team will accomplish their goal of obtaining the points lead heading into rounds 7 & 8.
Bobby VanBeekum would like to thank his 2010 team sponsors: Muzzys Performance, Kawasaki Motor Corp., Xtreme Machine & Fabrication (XMF), Rhino Parts & Performance, UTVUnderground.com, Walker Evans Racing, BS Sand Seats, Gear One, EPI, and R&R Steel.
