Rounds 11 & 12 of the 2016 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series were held at the Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, Nevada, right outside of Reno under scorching heat and Team Renezeder was ready to battle the best!
Saturday's racing started out with the Lucas Oil / KMC Wheels / Team Associated / BFGoodrich Tires #17 - Pro 4 truck on the third row, on the inside. By the second or third lap he was in 2nd place behind Kyle Leduc, in the #99 truck. Renezeder's truck was handling great, and everything was going really well, when alarms went off on his dash. Within two short laps, the blue light which shows low water pressure came on. Renezeder had to pull over into the hot pits as he had a leak in the water line and was not getting cool water to the engine. The crew added some fluid, but the water loss was too great to keep on going.
"Super hot this weekend at Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno. Thanks to HDX Hydration Mix for keeping us hydrated and energized through the long hot weekend. Great tasting and easy to use, keeps you from burning out in the heat. " Ken Stahlman, Team Renezeder Crew Chief
Carl was philosophical about the weekend "It was a tough weekend for us, but it's not about what you do on your good days, it's about what you do on your bad days. We’ll recover and have plenty for the competition in Lake Elsinore."
Catch Renezeder and crew for rounds 13 and 14 on September 23-24 at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, in Lake Elsinore, California under the lights!
