I-10 Round 7

BLYTHE, California - September 28, 2013 - Chris Gerchman said he was racing more for points than for a win Saturday night at Lucas Oil I-10 Speedway. He got both and in the process got a stranglehold on his first championship in the Lucas Oil Modified Series presented by LoanMart.

Blythe, California - September 25, 2013 - The drivers in the Lucas Oil Modified Series presented by LoanMart are going topless Saturday night (September 28) at Lucas Oil I-10 Speedway.

That includes 2008 series champion Jimmy Dickerson, who will make his first start in three years in one of the Garcia Racing entries.

Before anyone gets too excited about the topless part, however, it needs to be made clear that this doesn't mean the series' regular drivers will race with bared chests  or that a bevy of Playboy centerfolds have been recruited for a special event.

vande zandeOn behalf of the drivers, teams and families of the Lucas Oil Modified Series presented by LoanMart, series officials want to express condolences to driver Randy Ussery, his wife Heidy and daughter Sarah Lou Sweet Vande Zande on the recent loss of their son-in-law and Sarah's husband.

Rob Allan Vande Zande Jr., a Specialist in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, suffered a heart attack and drowned while swimming during a family outing in New Mexico on Sunday, September 15. He was laid to rest September 24 in his hometown of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and a memorial service will be held October 9 at Fort Bliss.

Mr. Vande Zande was 21 years old. He and Sarah were married on May 15, 2013, and she is expecting their first child, a girl already named Ava Lou, in mid-November.

The series extends its prayers and best wishes to the Ussery family.

general tire

Corona, California - September 6, 2013 - Asking Tony Talbert why General Tire goes racing is like asking him why he breathes.

"To the American public you have to prove your tires through racing, and General Tire has rebuilt its name since 2005 in off road racing," said Talbert, who manages the off road program for a company that was one of the leaders in the sport in the 1980s, nowhere to be found in the 1990s and one of the leaders again today in both desert endurance racing and the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO.

modifieds 2013 irwindale

Corona, California - August 26, 2013 - Chris Gerchman has an open road to the championship, but Jim Mardis will be trying to create enough obstacles to throw his rival off course in the final three races for the Lucas Oil Modified Series presented by LoanMart.

That won't be the easiest task Mardis ever has undertaken in his motor sports career, because Gerchman added 10 points to his lead August 17 at the Irwindale Events Center and is 16 ahead in the Hoosier Tire West point standings with races remaining at Lucas Oil I-10 Speedway in Blythe, California, September 28, Havasu 95 Speedway in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, October 19 and The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway November 16.
