MAKITA’S OFF ROAD RACE TEAMS SET TO TAKE ON GLEN HELEN THIS WEEKEND

The Glen Helen round of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series is always one to get excited about, with much of the industry and majority of the drivers being from the Southern California area including Rockstar Metal Mulisha Makita’s Brian Deegan and the Rockstar Makita LeDuc Racing team of Curt, Todd, and Kyle LeDuc.   

This weekend’s racing will mark rounds five and six of the series, and Brian Deegan comes into this event in second place in ProLite and Pro 2.  2011 is Brian’s first full season in the Pro 2 class and he has adapted extremely well to the new challenge by finishing on the podium several times thus far.  In ProLite, “The General” is still the man to beat and as a former champion, is looking to capture another championship.  He will face some stiff competition however from the Rockstar Makita ProLite truck of Kyle LeDuc.  Kyle is a former champion as well and is hungry for a win in 2011.  
 
The LeDuc’s come into Glen Helen looking to make a statement in Pro 4 action.  The team is more than capable of running up front and has their sites set on a podium finish. “We’re really happy to be back at Glen Helen in our own back yard,” said Todd LeDuc. “I want to put on a good show for my hometown crowd and put my Rockstar Makita Ford truck up on the podium.”
 
In addition to all of the racing action this weekend, The Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series has dedicated Saturday’s event to Jeff “Ox” Kargola, who recently lost his life after a motorcycle crash in Mexico. Kargola was one of the rising stars of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series after achieving fame as a freestyle motocross competitor and personality. He will be missed.
 

If you’re in the area, make sure you come out and check out the action. Last year’s event was sold out, so although seating capacity has doubled, make sure you get to the track early to secure the best spot you can to view the on-track action. If you can’t make it out to the track, you can catch all of the action on CBS Sports on June 12th at 2pm Eastern.
