Bradley Morris was riding a monster sized wave of momentum heading into Las Vegas for rounds 13 and 14 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Morris had only recently won the Pro Buggy TORC World Championship Race at Crandon International Raceway, sweeping the weekend, and setting a new track record in the process. He was sitting in second place overall in the Pro Buggy championship chase and fourth in Pro Lite. So understandably, expectations all around were high.

The weekend kicked off in great form with the BME Motorsports' Pro Buggy flashing new bling, with the panels wrapped in chrome and sporting freshly designed K&N Filters graphics. Morris started the race on the front row next to Dave Mason Jr., and the two racers put on an entertaining dual for the first half of the race, until Morris seemed to find another gear and pulled away until a caution flag stopped his charge. On the restart Morris remained laser focused on his line, making no mistakes on his way to another checkered flag. Morris has now won at least one race in his last six events.

Up next was the Pro Lite race and right from the get-go it was a non-stop battle between Morris and veteran Brian Deegan, as the two scraped for several laps with the rest of the field falling behind them. However in one of the most caution flag filled races of the season, Morris got center-punched on a restart with only a few laps remaining, and he was sent back to 8th place. By the end of the lap Morris had already moved back into 4th place, just before another caution flag came out and the officials called the fight. Morris had to settle for 4th place.

In the second Pro Lite bout it was once again the Morris and Deegan show, only this time Morris held the lead, and again the two skirmished the entire race. Then half way through the race, after a restart, Morris caught a rut and did a clean barrel roll, landing the truck back on all fours. Undaunted he battled on, all the way back to 4th, missing another podium by a mere heartbeat.

Although the results weren't up to BME Motorsports or Morris' expectations, the young man continues to show everyone what he's made of. "I have felt more confident lately, and I just had a hard time in the Pro Lite in Vegas," said Morris. "But we still salvaged two 4th place finishes."

Indeed, two podiums and a top-five finish in all four races amounts to a stellar weekend by any standards, especially considering the hurdles Morris had to overcome. Morris and the BME Motorsports wasted little time on reflection though, because they had to immediately refocus on getting the Pro Lite prepped for Primm, Nevada, for TORC rounds 15 and 16, along with the Traxxas Pro Lite Cup.

"At TORC I got two 6th place finishes in my first Pro 4 races, and then a 4th and a 3rd in the Pro Lite," reported Morris. "And then I almost won the cup race. But when I was passing for the lead, I tagged the inside K-rail and took myself out because I wanted to win so badly."

Next up for BME Motorsports is Elsinore. "I just wanna remain top three in points in both my classes In LOORRS," adds Bradley Morris, "And to go win the Challenge Cup for my team and family, who are always there supporting me."
