Compton, California (June 30, 2017) – Greg Adler and Team 4 Wheel Parts battled the world’s elite off-road racers on the tight, technical off-road track at Utah Motorsports Campus this past weekend as the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series held Rounds 5&6 in Tooele, Utah. Living up to its billing as one of the tightest and most technical courses on the Series’ schedule, the track exacted its toll on Adler and the Pro4 field who diced for valuable positions in the two-day slugfest.

With three Friday afternoon practice sessions leading up to the weekend’s main events allowing Crew Chief, Mike Seat and the veteran team the opportunity to fine tune the 900-HP #10 truck, Adler consistently improved on his lap times throughout the day and as he entered Saturday, his times were among the leaders. The payoff came during Round 5 qualifying Saturday morning which put the top 6 trucks within four tenths of a second, setting up what would be a tightly contested round.

“On this course, you have to battle for every single spot,” said Adler. “We would work our way to lead group, getting as high as third, then we’d run into contact and get shuffled back a few spots. The pace is incredible and you have to scratch, claw and bump your way back up there. Ultimately, we took a hard hit late in the race that kept us out of the running but we passed a lot of cars today. At the end, we were on the lead lap on the move but had to settle for seventh.”

After a technical situation prevented him from recording an official qualifying time, Adler was forced to start at the rear of the pack for Sunday’s weekend Pro4 finale. As the green flag dropped, Adler took off with the roaring Pro4 herd and was quickly occupied with the task of making passes wherever he could. Picking off a number of positions and moving through the field, he was on pace to join the leaders. As the laps were counting down, chaos reigned supreme as nearly the entire field was collected in an incident that left one Pro4 sitting on top of another with the entire race coming to a halt.

“That’s Sunday Lucas Oil Off Road Racing,” said Adler, who somehow made it through the episode unscathed. “We were on the move and then everything in front of us skidded to a stop. We were able to avoid the carnage and when the dust settled we were in fourth place.”

As race officials made the determination to restart the race with just two laps remaining Adler charged through the first corner. Battling with the #37 and his sights set on a podium finish to close out the weekend, he traded on-track jabs as the two fought through the first three corners. Eventually, Adler succumbed and finished as the fourth vehicle to take the checkered flag.

“We battled today,” he said. “The results aren’t always indicative of the weekend but Mike, Dylan (Cochran) and the guys had us ready to attack. In a race like this where the gloves are off and anything can happen, we gave it everything we had. We may not have put the #10 on the podium this weekend but we finished strong and know that we’re starting to get this truck dialed in. We’ll be ready for Wheatland.”

The team now prepares for Rounds 7&8 as the Series heads to Wheatland, Missouri for the Series’ much anticipated inaugural event at Lucas Oil Raceway to be held on July 22-23. Future events include doubleheaders in Reno, Nevada and San Bernardino, CA. before racing returns to Chandler, Arizona for the season finale and the Lucas Oil Challenge Cup.
