RENO, NV – NOVEMBER 4, 2010: The SuperLite trucks driven by Twitch, Ox, and Chad George are gearing up to hit the strip in Las Vegas this weekend at the Lucas Oil Off Road Race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. With only three points separating Jeremy Twitch Stenberg from Chad George, we may have a new series leader by the end of the weekend. Notably one of the better classes of action to watch, these spec single seat truck chassis’ are equally set up with Mazda engines which puts the driver at the wheel of winning.
Brandon Ward gained a lot of confidence after his win in Arizona, and is ready to take the podium again, but has a big group of competitors that want the same. Chad George, who is currently the season points leader must get on the podium to maintain his lead with only three races remaining. Colton Greaves and Jacob Pearson, are third and fourth respectively separated by two points, which means both finishes will make a difference in the overall standings. Brandon Ward and Dawson Kirchner are also battling for the 5th place, separated by only one point. With just three races left in the season, we will start to watch the overall points battles continue to heat up.
New on the track with the Arrive and Drive program will be Doug and Bubba Grey from Texas. The father, son team tested very well at the Reno test track and are ready to race in Las Vegas. Wealth TV will also be in attendance covering the Arrive and Drive experience.
Coming back for his second race will be Patrick Clark who took 4th at the Arizona round and who recently took advantage of testing with Chuck Dempsey at the Lucas Oil testing day last week. The SuperLite Arrive and Drive program allows anyone to be a race truck driver for a weekend, or a few races with full race support and race prepped trucks.
