Nitro Circus 3D cast members Erik Roner and Greg Godfrey will be making a guest apperance at the Glen Helen Lucas Oil Off Road "Night Race" They will both be running in the Superlite arrive and drive program and are excited to get a taste of Short Course Off Road.
Whether they are trying to back flip a bike over a building 60-stories high, or landing a death defying jump, the Nitro Circus is known for dreaming up the most dangerous stunts in the world of action sports. In efforts of promoting the movie Nitro Circus 3D (in theaters Aug 8th), they will be putting some of the cast behind the wheel this weekend at the Lucas Oil Off Road Race at Glen Helen Raceway in California.
Putting the founder of Nitro Circus, Gregg Godfrey and cast member, Erik Roner behind the wheel of a pro truck is probably not the best idea. These two shouldn’t have that much horsepower and freedom at their fingertips. To see just how far these guys are willing to bicycle a truck around the track or over jump anything in their way, check out this link to the upcoming movie:
“All we need is horsepower and dirt for our crew to feel right at home, and were excited to get our feet wet in short course racing. Consider your self warned, because these two won’t lift a foot!!!”
– Jared Willardsen, Producer for Godfrey Entertainment.
Next weekend's showdown at Glen Helen Raceway will mark several monumental firsts in SuperLite Championship Arrive & Drive racing history. We cannot recall the last time we gave away promo rides in the cockpit of our spec-class race truck. But we're doing it. Sure, we've donated a few rides to charitable causes. But we've never flat out given them away. And we've never had the likes of Nitro Circus involved in the theater of SuperLite short course off-road racing. Will Erik Roner and Gregg Godfrey pose a threat to the lead act of SuperLite racing?
As we enter into the heartland of off-road racing lifestyle and its heralded Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Round 9 & 10 four-wheel action sports melee, the lead series performers will up the anti in their pursuits to take home the 2012 class championship.
Ryan Hagy, standing 24 points back in third, is wagering his strategy on a conservative game plan. Show up. Finish up front. Let the bar room-style brawl take out the competitors. Sheldon Creed's style is just dance on the rev limiter and throw down just enough dominating skill to get it to the finish first. His style is relentless and proven, as he's scored the most wins of the grid and leads the pack in the coveted points chase. Drew Britt will grapple. But he works to maintain a perfect balance between a gentleman and a jouster. And it works. With this race at this epic track marketing the one year anniversary of his short course off-road racing debut, he stands a mere one point back from snatching the lead from Creed, who has had a stranglehold of the lead since the season launched at Firebird International Raceway.
Steve Greinke is redefining the word cautious. The 33-year-old Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series driver has a 50-point lead in the Pro Buggy class and needs only to start the final points race of the season to claim his second straight championship.Read more...
