2016 LUCAS OIL OFF-ROAD RACING SERIES FINISHES STRONG AT WILD HORSE PASS
Kyle LeDuc continued his winning ways by taking the Pro 4 win at Round 15, and that was the result that counted the most as he took the 2016 Pro 4 Championship away from Carl Renezeder with virtually a last lap pass. Renezeder had taken the early lead and was being pushed hard by Rob MacCachren (who finished Third both on the day and for the season), but LeDuc was working his way up through the pack and caught them both with only a few laps to go. A slight mistake by Renezeder allowed LeDuc by and that was it.
Renezeder came in second though he had actually turned the fastest lap. His Fastest Lap came on lap 11 when he beat LeDuc’s best lap time, also put forth on lap 11, by less than half a second. To say the racing was tight and that the best off-road short course drivers in the land were pushing right to the end is an understatement.
While the other classes were going down to the wire, Rob MacCachren had actually already sewn up the Pro 2 Championship at a previous round. That didn’t mean that he was going to rest on his laurels though as he went into Round 15 with one thing in mind, and that was to take the final round win. The rest of the field had something to prove though, and had Rob Mac’s #21 in their sites. That was especially true for RJ Anderson, who although Second in overall points, had yet to actually win a round. Anderson went into White Horse Pass and Round 15 knowing that Re nezeder was a close third in the season standings, and though had a tough season, had won Round 2.
