Team StopTech Racing Update - June 1, 2016

We're hittin' the dirt again this week as we check in with off-road racing legend, Carl Renezeder, one of Team StopTech's stalwarts. Renezeder was all smiles after a strong run in rounds 5 and 6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at the Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, UT. Wet weather cancelled qualifying for round 5, but track officials did an excellent job getting the surface ready for competiion. Well acquainted with the Tooele track surface, the TR17 crew had both Lucas Oil/KMC Wheels/Team Associated/BFGoodrich TiresPro-2 and Pro-4 trucks in amazing form for both rounds of racing. As a matter of fact, Carl was a little too hooked up in his Pro-4 during round 5.
While running in the second spot for most of the race, Carl hit the big table-top jump with too much speed. Despite his massive StopTech brakes, he over-shot the landing and lost some positions when he went wide in the corner. He was able to recover quickly and moved up fifth place in the closing laps.
Pro-4 round 6 was filled with crashes and yellow flags, but Carl picked his way through the competition and put in a strong battle for the lead. He raced door-to-door right up to the checkered flag, securing a second place podium finish. The two Top-5s kept Carl in the Pro-4 championship points lead for the season.
In Pro-2 things were much crazier. The TR17 team did an excellent job rebounding from a rollover crash that sidelined them in round 5, but they continued to work on implementing the changes to the Pro-2 that have made the Pro-4 such a strong contender this season. In Sunday's race the hard work paid off. The truck ran strong from the start and Carl and the crew were rewarded for all their hard work with a third place podium finish.
With a pair of podium finishes and the Pro-4 points lead in hand, Team Renezeder is looking forward to heading south of the border to the Baja International Short Course at Estero Beach, Ensenada, MX on June 18th and 19th for rounds 7 and 8.

"Team Renezeder looks forward to the race in Baja, California as we have so many fans down there that live and breathe off road racing" said Carl Renezeder, "Every time we go down there, it is such an amazing time as I see the same families coming to the races with their children. We really appreciate the fans down there and the opportunity to race in their beautiful country."
