K&N sponsored driver RJ Anderson kicked off his Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) 2015 season the weekend of March 7-8, 2015 in Lake Elsinore, California. Excitement peaked going into the RJ’s first race weekend of the year but the 2015 season began months ago for the RJ37 Team. Never has Anderson worked so hard to prepare for a season. Countless hours of testing and prep went into the #37 Pro2 & Pro-Lite trucks in support of this year’s championship quest.

A new look was unveiled to the public in front of RJ’s home crowd not far from K&N headquarters in Riverside, California. A fresh red & white graphics scheme inspired by 2014’s look and RJ’s Polaris RZR viral video series XP1K, now adorns the 2015 #37 Pro2 & Pro-Lite trucks. With this fresh look came a new level of confidence both in the team and RJ himself. 2014 was challenging as RJ Anderson, then only 21 years old, ran his 2 truck program for the first time all on his own. Combine that with 2014 being RJ’s rookie season in the elite Pro2 class and you have enough pressure to break even the most seasoned racer. RJ battled all year long in 2014 to prove himself as a team owner and learning as much as he could as a driver in a new division.

For 2015 RJ and the RJ37 team are all about results and during the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) weekend in Lake Elsinore, California RJ proved that he is back and will be a force in both divisions all year long. RJ earned 2 podiums in the Pro-Lite division putting his K&N air filters supported #37 LoanMart, Walker Evans Racing, and South Point Pro-Lite truck on the box in 3rd place for both rounds. The former Pro-Lite champion came out and showed that he and his team are coming to reclaim their championship title.

RJ’s weekend of Pro2 racing would present some challenges, however he and the RJ37 team never gave up. Qualifying ended when a collision destroyed the Pro2 truck’s driver’s side front-end. The K&N sponsored RJ37 team would have to completely rebuild the front end before the evening’s race. The poor qualifying forced RJ to begin the race from 14th place. However, when the green flag dropped RJ sprinted to the front of the field battling for 2nd place before contact sent him out of podium contention and to the back of the pack. Despite a disappointing 13th place finish, RJ was the fastest truck on the track until race winner, and fellow K&N sponsored driver, Bryce Menzies would narrowly surpass his lap time late in the race. With the second fastest lap in Pro2, RJ had high spirits as he and the team prepped for Saturday’s Round 2 event.

On Saturday K&N sponsored driver RJ Anderson qualified 7th putting him in the middle of the herd as the green flag waived and racers fired off onto the track. RJ was once again one of the faster racers on the track and made quick work passing as many trucks as he could. As RJ reached the top 3, he, Jeremy McGrath, and Patrick Clark battled three-wide down the front straight away. Mid-air contact between RJ and Patrick Clark sent the #37 Polaris RZR Pro2 sideways and into a violent 360 spin as it landed. RJ remained on the throttle and after being tagged by a couple of trucks found himself back on course and still running. The yellow flag waived putting RJ into 4th where he would remain despite a last minute push to overtake McGrath for the 3rd position.

After the second Pro2 race RJ rolled back to the RJ37 pits where he was greeted by his team and fans who were riding high both on the weekend’s performance but more so on the promise of success for the remainder of the 2015 season. One thing RJ Anderson and the RJ37 Team never have to worry about is the superior airflow and superior performance their trucks receive from K&N filters. RJ would like to thank the entire RJ37 team, his family, fans and sponsors such as K&N air filters. K&N will continue to follow RJ Anderson and the RJ37 team throughout the 2015 LOORS season. If you can, head out to see RJ compete in his next races, April 14th & 15th, 2015 in Chandler, AZ at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park.
