Carey Hart Combines Short Course Off-Road Racing Tour with Pink's Tour in Australia
Carey Hart left Pink’s side for a moment on her Australian tour to join the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series in Lake Elsinore, California.
The freestyle motocross pioneer, along with his Rockstar Hart and Huntington teammates unleashed their powerful four wheel trucks on the dirt short course at the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex. Hart has come a long way since he began his career as an amateur motocross racer as a teen. He is known for his extensive wins and the first full back flip, named the Hart Attack, on a 250cc bike in 2000.

Hart has crossed over into short course racing and said he is in it for the long haul. “Lucas is taking this series up to a whole new level,” he said. “I’m new to this sport and I have a lot of passion about it. I have a long way to go to climb up that racing ladder, but we’re going to be giving the competition hell.”
Hart competes in the LOORRS Unlimited 2 class. Unlimited 2 trucks are full size, two-wheel rear drive race trucks.
The Unlimited 2 class is considered an open production division. There is no limit to horsepower, but it generally ranges between 700-900 hp. Unlimited 2 trucks have a maximum body width of 80 inches and the minimum weight including the driver is 3,750 pounds.
“I don’t want to overdrive the truck and get in over my head,” said Hart. “It’s a learning process right now. We’re lucky to have a veteran brand on our program. K&N products are amazing. K&N is all we run on my motorcycles and trucks.”
Another motocross legend who has crossed over into short-course racing is
Metal Mulisha founder
Brian Deegan. “I’m super pumped,” he said. “I live ten minutes down the road and I hope this track just blows up, and I’m sure it will.”
Hart took 8th place in the Unlimited 2 race on Sunday. After the race he flew back to Australia to rejoin Pink. He will leave Australia again and fly back to the United States for the second weekend of LOORRS racing action in Lake Elsinore on July 25-26.
