“This is great racing,” said Pflueger. “It is tight banging, body parts flying and very aggressive track action. Some drivers are here to have a good time; some drivers are here to win. I’m one of the guys here to win.”

Pflueger is currently 2nd overall in points in LOORRS, only 9 points behind team mate Carl Renezeder who is leading the pack. On Sunday Pflueger took third place at the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex in the K&N No. 71 truck.

“You have to have a truck in this type of racing that can go out on the track and do battle,” he said. “Short course racing is not about minutes or seconds, it’s about winning or losing in fractions of a second. K&N protects my motor. We spend $50,000 on these engines and K&N filters give me the protection and additional performance I need to win.”

Pflueger went back to Hawaii after the LOORRS race but plans to return to the racing action at Lake Elsinore July 25-26.

"In the next round I plan to get my clean dirt, hammer down and put the roost in their shields," said Pflueger.
