Round 11 saw some serious shakeups, in terms of results, within the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, and tonight, fans were treated to an even better night under the lights. The high-speed track here at Wild West Motorsports Park, just outside Reno, NV, was the perfect venue for some races that seemed to be changing almost by the second. Fans packed the stands near to bursting tonight, and everyone who came was rewarded with beautiful weather that was markedly warmer and calmer than last night's. The drivers put on a fantastic show, as each of the five class winners put in a drive that was more than worthy of victory here tonight.
For the second time this season, the drivers and crews of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, have overcome the difficulties of a short, three-week break between the last race weekend and this one. As usual, these professionals have come through with flying colors, as evidenced by the great performances that the drivers and cars put on here at Wild West Motorsports Park tonight. With the series returning for its second visit of the season to the Reno, NV area, it's time for Rounds 11 and 12 of the 2014 championship season, with the first of those two rounds rolling out on track tonight, greeted by an enthusiastic crowd and unseasonably cool conditions. Some impressive streaks were on the line tonight, and of course the championship battles are still on in earnest, so there was plenty to be excited about, and the evening's racing did not disappoint.
