MARIETTA, Ga. – October 25, 2018 – Yamaha Racing announces factory-supported bLU cRU racer Brock Heger captured the 2018 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) Production 1000 UTV Class national championship this past weekend at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona. For the second year in a row, Heger claims the $15,000 Yamaha bLU cRU bonus in his YXZ1000R.
“Yamaha sends a big congratulations to Brock Heger, along with his entire team, who put up another incredible performance this year, successfully defending the LOORRS Production 1000 UTV national title in a YXZ1000R,” said Donnie Luce, Yamaha’s off-road racing coordinator. “Heger performed with unmatched consistency as the only racer in the class to finish on the podium ten times or more – for two years in a row.”
