Cameron Steele captured his first series race of the season in the Pro Lite Class, as did Chad George, who took the title in the Super Lites Class. They both won on off-the-shelf Geolandar A/T-S tires.

“It was great to see Cameron and Chad get their first wins of the season,” says senior motorsports manager Andrew Briggs.

“They’ve been competitive all year and we knew it was only a matter of time before they were going to get it done” he reports. “I know winning this race meant a lot to Cameron, Chad and their teams.”

Steele is a veteran off-road Trophy Truck class racer who has won championships in SCORE and SNORE. The two-time SCORE Person of the Year and television commentator says the company’s tires were a big factor in helping drive his No.16 300-hp Ford Pro Lite Unlimited truck to victory. “The tires performed perfectly,” he notes.

George also praised the Geolandars for assisting his No. 42 Kawasaki Super Lite truck in its wire-to-wire win: “With Yokohama tires on my truck, I have my best chance to win a LOORRS championship.”

The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is a 16-race competition that combines the Midwest tradition of short course off-road racing with a West Coast influence, according to Briggs.

The next contest in the series is Sept. 24-25 at Speedworld Off-Road Park in Surprise, Ariz.
