Team Renezeder evaluating strategy after disastrous Glen Helen weekend
Aug 05 2012
LAKE FOREST, CA (August 5, 2012) – Team Renezeder is ready to develop a new game plan after a tough weekend at the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series event at Glen Helen Raceway.
Despite qualifying first and second, neither the team's Pro2 or Pro4 was able to score a single good result and Renezeder said that's a situation that calls for some serious evaluation.
"I’m not willing to summarize it as just bad luck," said Renezeder. "We’ve got to get back to being competitive in the closing laps of these races.”
After qualifying on the pole in the Pro-2 and second in the Pro-4 on Friday afternoon, Renezeder’s best result of the weekend was sixth-place in Pro-2 on Sunday night.
Wheel-to-wheel contact in the Pro-4 race on Saturday took out front-wheel-drive, followed by a Pro-2 race that was, in Renezeder’s words, “unbelievably awful,” with suspension parts ripped off the truck early in the race. Sunday’s Pro-4 race was much the same as Saturday, and while the Pro-2 race had a better result than the day before, he wasn’t in contention for the win.
“We’ll resolve this,” concluded Renezeder. “This team is capable of finishing out this season in championship form, and we’ll do everything we can to make that happen.”
Renezeder and his crew have their favorite kind of venue on the schedule for the next race: a brand new one. They are masters at learning and adapting to a track quickly, and the new track in Reno, Nevada shouldn’t be an exception.
The team travels north through the Sierras the weekend of August 24-26 for rounds 11 and 12 of the LOORRS season, with a determination to get back on top of the podium.
