Chandler, AZ (5/26/10) Weller Racing, LLC was once again on top of the podium this past weekend in Las Vegas, NV for Rounds 5 and 6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Race Series (www.lucasoiloffroad.com). Returning to Nevada for two more rounds, Weller Racing drivers put their cars on top of the podium in both the Unlimited UTV and SR1 UTV classes.
Weller Racing’s Unlimited UTV driver and Monster Energy/Kawasaki/XMF backed Austin Kimbrell took vengeance on the track that had been so unlucky for him for the first two rounds of the series. Powered by his Weller Racing built Teryx motor, Kimbrell won both of his qualifiers, led at both mandatory caution flags and took both wins over the course of the weekend, leaving no doubt in anyone’s mind that he is aimed straight at a 2010 championship.
“Austin just drove solid all weekend”, stated Jason Weller, owner of Weller Racing. “He did a great job! We have no doubt that he will continue to be a dominating force in the Unlimited UTV class for the rest of this season, and we will continue to do everything in our power to make sure he’s got a motor that will get him to a championship.”
In the SR1 UTV class, Weller Racing saw even more first place finishes as Corry Weller once again put her Yamaha R1 powered Weller Racing/Tilted Kilt SR1 on top of the podium for Round 5, erasing any doubts that her previous win in Arizona was a fluke.
“Thanks to my team and my sponsors, I have this great little machine that can get me to the top of the podium,” said Weller. “It’s just up to me, now, to keep driving it to its potential and make sure we get there at every round!”
In addition to Weller’s first place finish in Round 5, Ivy Trucking/XMF/Weller Racing’s Tyler Herzog added to the Weller Racing podium count with a solid win in the SR1 UTV class on Sunday, and a third place finish for Round 5 on Saturday, giving Weller Racing a solid podium sweep for the weekend.
“We have had a great season so far,” says Jason. “But that doesn’t mean we will be content to sit back and relax – we will be working hard right up until we leave for the next two rounds in Utah to give our drivers the edge they need to continue to win.”
