Brock Heger and Corry Weller started out the 2019 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series season the way they finished out the previous year – on top of the podium in their respective classes. The team most recently raced in the season opener at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA.
Corry Weller would also be defending her Prod Turbo UTV Championship in her Can-Am Maverick X3 XRS, and let the competition know she was ready to play with a 1st place qualifying time. She would also start 6th in the main after the inversion, and quickly worked her way into 3rd place within the first lap. From there, she worked for several laps on a clean pass for 2nd place before aggressively taking the spot and would move up into the lead with just a few laps to go, clinching a Round 1 podium sweep for Weller Racing.
“The first race of a new season is always somewhat of a nail-biter,” says Corry Weller. “Everyone has had a chance to do their homework, go testing, and learn from the previous year, and you just don’t know how it’s all going to play out. Defending a championship is tough, because everyone is gunning for that number one plate, and you have to be on top of your game even more to keep it.”
Team owner Jason Weller decided to step back into racing Regionals only this year and focus 100% on his two drivers for the 2019 LOORRS season.
“I love to race, don’t get me wrong. But I also know that this year, the competition is stepping up even more, and I would rather focus entirely on Brock and Corry in LOORRS and make sure we are doing everything we can for them at the track to keep them up front.”
The Weller Racing team will be returning to Wild Horse Pass in Arizona for Round 2 of LOORRS in April.
