– The RacePro Tech team was on track in more ways than one during rounds 3 and 4 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, (LOORRS) at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, Ca. First off, it’s important to be specific because the team does double duty, racing their 6100 class truck in the desert and the Pro Lite trucks of team owner and driver Justin Peck, and teammate Ray Griffith in LOORRS short course events. Secondly, big changes were made to the set-ups on both Pro Lite trucks at the beginning of the season and they are both performing as expected. With so many systems on the trucks, and so many variables at each venue they visit, the ongoing tuning development has definitely been on track.
