Corry Weller Completes Her Second Event for the LOORRS in the Pro 4 Unlimited!

chance to get through unscathed. She spun her truck back around as fast as she could and took off after third, but ran out of time before the checkers to challenge him for the position. Despite her early rollover, Weller had charged from the very back of the field into a solid fourth place finish in only her second weekend of racing in the Pro-4 class.
Anyone who had any doubts about her jump from UTVs into the big trucks could rest assured that she would do just fine, as her crew got busy checking her truck over and getting it ready for one more day of racing.
Sunday morning saw the Tilted Kilt/Maxxis Tires/N-FAB Pro-4 looking good as new and ready for qualifying. Weller was only able to get one full lap in, however, due to a mechanical steering failure, but her one lap still put her in the 9th position for the main.
"I am really feeling comfortable in my truck now, and it's a great feeling to be able to focus more on the race, and less on the actual mechanics of just driving the truck. This is where I had wanted to be by mid-season, and the fact that I'm already getting there is more than I could have hoped for!"
When the green flag dropped for Sunday's race, Weller's strategy was to stay close to the pack, but not too close, until everyone was through turn three safely. Her plans went out the window, however, when her left front axle broke and she found herself facing backwards on the track.
She got turned back around and made her run for the field, but quickly found out that power being put to the ground by only three axles made turns and jumps very unpredictable, and she would have to be very careful for the remainder of the race. Careful doesn’t always mean slow, however, and Weller hauled the mail and still managed to pull off a number of passes, until she was able to cross the checkers in 7th place overall.
