Momentum is a cornerstone of physics and has been defined as the ability of an object to continue moving because of its mass and velocity. In racing it’s essential to carry momentum, mass and velocity from one event to another, and even from one season to the next.

Jerry says he’s looking forward to racing his new Pro 4 truck in rounds 3 and 4.

“The Live Fast Play Dirty Motorsports team ended the 2013 Season of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) on a positive note,” commented team owner/manager Christie Daugherty. “With Jerry Daugherty finishing 6th in the Pro 4 points standings and Aaron Daugherty finishing in the top-10 of the Pro Lite class.”

That “positive note” resonated on as the LOORRS opened its 2014 extreme short course off-road racing action on the dirt of Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Chandler, with Rounds 1 and 2. Jerry Daugherty and the K&N Filters supported Pro 4 No. 23 of old, proved that they work well together as he brought the No. 23 to the podium during the opening events in Chandler.

“A well deserved 3rd place finish brings much momentum to the team going into Rounds 3 and 4 this month,” Christie said.

“The competition in the Pro 4 class is getting stronger, and with the addition of new trucks and drivers, it is getting more and more difficult to get on the box,” Jerry added. “Some of the drivers looked a little rusty as they banged fenders early on in the race, which took out our brakes in Saturday’s race, but we came back strong on Sunday.”

“With the Pro 4 race ending the events of the day, the track gets pretty torn up, and that leads to a lot of carnage. It has been a long time since we were on the box, and this will give us a lot of confidence heading into the upcoming races. I can’t wait to debut our new truck in Lake Elsinore.”

During their off season most of the teams’ focus was dedicated to the fabrication and building of a new Pro 4 race truck, which Jerry will debut at the upcoming LOORRS events in Lake Elsinore, California, April 25-26th.

After a frustrating first round of racing for Aaron Daugherty, he and the Live Fast Play Dirty Motorsports Pro Lite No. 23 are anxious to get back on the track. During the first lap of Round 1, Aaron had contact mid-air over the front stretch table top. Although Aaron was able to save the truck from a nasty end-over-end crash, it did however result in two tires blowing, which created a motor issue.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back in the truck and putting rounds 1and 2 behind me,” Aaron remarked. “Lake Elsinore is a fun track and we can really air it out over the huge jumps! I'm really excited for the team to debut dad's new Pro 4 too, which looked pretty awesome in testing at Miller Motorsports Park.”

Look for the K&N backed team of Live Fast Play Dirty Motorsports April 25-26, at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, California.
