With 2013, the driver continued his winning streak on the Pro 4 division. In fact, he entered Miller Motorsports Park with wins on the first six rounds of the 2013 LOORRS events.
Looking back, at the abrupt change in his success rate, the Carl Renezeder said, "Truthfully, there weren't any major, wholesale changes made to turn things around. We just kept digging, kept fine tuning and adjusting to make these trucks better and better. The Pro 2 and Pro 4 classes are ultra-competitive. It's not easy to win. So when we have a few weekends like we have so far this season, we appreciate them."
With a personal winning streak record at his fingertips, Carl Renezeder embarked upon round seven of the event with vigor. And when the dust had settled, his eagerness and an impressive performance had earned him his ninth consecutive win in the pro 4 division, clinching the record and setting a new standard.
Carl Renezeder recently set a new record in the Pro 4 class of the LOORS series upon earning nine consecutive wins.
Round eight of the event, brought with it even more anticipation. But on the other hand, with every race the odds of being plagued with a stroke of bad luck increases. And that it did, when he hit the rear brakes in lieu of all four going into a turn. The battle was heated and went down to the wire, but Renezeder's error earlier in the race was just enough to put the driver in second place.
"It's never a bad day when you finish on the podium," he ensured. "I was pretty upset with myself early in that race when I messed up setting the truck into turn four. It put me back to fourth or fifth place," he continued. "I ran out of time to work my way back to the lead. But I'm glad I was in the contention for the win. Stuff like that happens. We definitely won't let it ruin our season."
Looking back at the record-breaking string of wins, the driver said, "It's a great stat for the books, but records are made to be broken. We'd like to be the team that wins 10 in a row."
With many years of driving under his belt, Carl Renezeder and his crew benefit from experience, an element of racing that simply comes with time. And throughout the years, the importance of his team has come to the forefront time after time.
"You can't compete in this sport without a great team," he ensured. "They mean everything to me. Everyone has something, and often several things, they're really good at. We combine all of our strengths to make the best team we can every race weekend."
Experience has also taught Renezeder that there is no replacement for a stringent maintenance program. "It is incredibly important," he explained. "We have detailed checklists for the shop and at the track. The last thing you want to do is lose a race because you simply forgot to do routine maintenance."
One can rest assured that keeping the internal components of their engines contaminant free is at the top of their list. That in mind, they turn to K&N products for their filtering needs.
"We've been using K&N's air and oil filters in all of our race trucks, haulers and team vehicles for over 10-years," he ensured. "K&N is the industry leader, and we're proud to be able to run their products in our equipment."
Along with the ease of mind of knowing their engines will be running clean, Carl Renezeder and his crew will be going into the remainder of the season with confidence on their sides. "We'd be crazy if we weren't confident right now," continued the driver. "But in no way does that mean we just expect to win. Our team puts in long hours, the hard work and the constant innovation necessary to give us the confidence to be competitive each weekend.
"We need to keep doing what we're doing - finishing on the podium and winning as much as we can," stated the driver. Anticipating the remainder of 2013 Carl Renezeder concluded, "Hopefully fans can expect more of the same as the first-half of the season! We're committed to chasing more wins and two championships."
