Renezeder Rules Lucas Off-Road Opener
The field then seemed to settle in to a rhythm, with gaps roughly holding over the course of several laps. As the race got into its latter stages, reliability did indeed begin to come into play. Adler was the first victim, as he gradually slowed, with Weller then going by and into fourth on lap 17.
On the next lap, the race leader LeDuc was the next to hit trouble, as an electrical issue slowed his pace substantially, and Renezeder zipped by and into the lead. LeDuc did his best to keep his pace high, and to keep a hard-charging Barron behind him.
With Renezeder picking up the win, LeDuc did manage to hold off Barron for second, just, as the two finished less than a second apart, and around seven seconds behind Renezeder. Adler got back by Weller for fourth on the last lap, and the two were around 40 seconds adrift of Renezeder at the stripe.
In Pro Lite Unlimited, Deegan got the early lead with R.J. Johnson a close second. A caution for a rollover by Trenton Briley quickly slowed the pace.
After the restart, Anderson was really pressuring Deegan for the lead, and on lap five, he used the low line at the either/or section to its best effect, as he moved ahead of Deegan and into first place coming onto the front straight.
The following lap brought the second full course caution out, as Max Hunt had a crash up in turn two. On the restart lap, Deegan dove low in turn two and really made the move work, as he moved back ahead of Anderson to re-take the lead. Just behind, Brooks picked off Morris for fourth later on the same lap, but Morris got back by early on the next lap.
Up front, Deegan and Anderson were really battling hard, while Morris continued to make ground just behind, as he got by Fouch to sneak up to third spot. Fouch then spun at turn four on lap ten, and a rollover in the same corner by class newbie Wayland Campbell brought out the third full course caution.
On the restart lap, Morris was really working on the back of Anderson, and when Anderson started to spin at turn four, Morris didnt hesitate, pouncing immediately and shooting past and into second place.
