Race Recap from Rounds 9 & 10 - Glen Helen, CA ** Corry Weller / Tilted Kilt Pro 4 **
Chandler, AZ (August 9, 2012) There was only one thing on her mind as Corry Weller rolled into Glen Helen Raceway for Rounds 9 & 10 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series: REDEMPTION. After a rough difficult weekend in Utah, the Tilted Kilt / Maxxis Tires / N-FAB #18 Pro 4 team was looking forward to the chance to redeem themselves at this slightly longer, smoother flowing race course.
With a decent qualifying time, Corry would start in the 4th row for both main events, where she was looking forward to the opportunity to put her Pro 4 back on the box!
With a completely sold out race for Saturday, the pits were crammed with short-course racing fans, and the lines at the Tilted Kilt Pro Pit were no different. Corry was out front signing posters and talking to all her fans.
When the green flag dropped for the Pro 4 race, Weller started well and allowed the pack in the very front sort itself out a bit before she began to move her way up. On the second lap, however, a sudden front end issue would slow her forward momentum considerably, and wound up salvaging a seventh place overall finish for the day. After a long night of hard work from her crew, the truck was fixed and good as new for Sunday's main event.
While Sunday's turnout wasn't quite as packed as the previous day, the pit's were still jammed with off-road race enthusiasts, both new and old!
Starting again in the fourth row, Weller noted that the track was drenched for this race. When the green flag dropped, it was an instant mudfest! Corry managed to stay in the pack and waited for the track to settle a bit before working her way to the front. As the race continued, Weller found herself battling for fifth place by the time the mandatory caution came out. On the restart, Corry's front differential let loose in a puff of smoke, and spun out in turn 4 ( Her front wheel drive was gone ).
Never giving up, Corry still tried
