Renezeder to Debut New Pro-4 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

By Auto News Log • May 18th, 2010

LAKE FOREST, CA – After a successful weekend of racing for Carl Renezeder at the last Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series event in Surprise, Arizona, Renezeder and the crew will head back to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend for the second of three visits this season. The team added four new pieces of hardware to the trophy case by putting their championship-winning Pro-2 and Pro-4 on the podium in rounds three and four, with hopes of doing the same thing in Vegas. However, a brand new Pro-4 will roll out of the trailer for Renezeder this weekend, and Mike Johnson will make the switch from the veteran Chevy to the more recent championship-winning Ford.

“It’s always nerve-wracking to bring a new truck out for its first race,” explained an apprehensive but excited Renezeder. “It takes some time in a new truck to find the same comfort level that I have in a truck I’ve been racing for a year or two. But I have all the confidence in the world in my crew chief, Mike Seat, and all the guys that have built this truck. It’s the best truck yet to roll out of our shop, and I’m excited to throw some dirt with it this weekend.”

This is the fourth short-course truck to be built from the ground up by Team Renezeder, and all of the builds have been led by Seat. After some functions testing and finding a good baseline for the suspension and basic set-up last week, the entire crew believes that this Ford will find its way to the front of the pack quickly.

The race weekend will follow the same format as the first two weekends of racing with practice and qualifying on Friday, racing on Saturday, and then another qualifying session on Sunday morning, followed by racing that afternoon. Gates open to the public at 9:00 a.m., and opening ceremonies are at 2:30 p.m. both days.
