As a follow up to the wet and frustrating Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) rounds 3 and 4 at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, K&N sponsored RJ Anderson and the whole RJ Anderson Racing team was excited to be heading back to their home turf for LOORRS rounds 5 and 6 at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park where the team had some success earlier in the 2015 season.

Round five was held on Saturday and RJ began the Pro-Lite truck class race on the front row. RJ Anderson quickly jumped out into the lead with a couple of challenges from Brandon Arthur and Brad Deberti. Anderson was lucky to have avoided the carnage behind him taking the win in spectacular fashion leading from the green flag to the checkers. This was the first win of the season for the K&N filters equipped #37 Loanmart/South Point Pro-Lite but it wouldn’t be the last that weekend.

The LOORRS round 5 Pro 2 truck class main event was scheduled to close out Anderson’s day and spirits were high following his Pro-Lite win. After the first lap of racing RJ came through in third position, but with two laps to go the #37 Pro 2 suffered an axle failure forcing RJ to pull off the track. RJ and the RJ Anderson Racing team returned to the pits to prep for Round 6.

The following day Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series round 6 got started at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park with slightly better weather conditions than the day before. In the Pro-Lite main event RJ Anderson jumped out to an early lead in his K&N filters equipped #37 Loanmart/South Point Pro-Lite truck and maintained that lead for every lap of the race to complete a sweep of the weekend’s Pro-Lite racing.

After fixing the Pro-2 truck’s axle that had broken the day before, RJ and the team felt confident they would be able to show the same speed again on Sunday. The morning of the race someone noticed a leak that turned out to be a serious engine problem and the whole team sprang into action. With RJ starting on the pole the stakes were high and the crew pushed hard, pulling off a complete engine swap in little more than two hours’ time to get RJ to the line.

Once on the track in his K&N air filters sponsored Pro-2 truck RJ did not disappoint. Almost immediately RJ jumped out front and held first place for the entire first lap ahead of Brian Deegan and Bryce Menzies. RJ held off the horde of drivers behind him until lap 9 when Brian Deegan managed to get by moving Anderson into second place. On the final lap RJ was caught by a hard-charging Bryce Menzies in a drag race to the finish line. The finish was decided by a photo finish and unfortunately RJ Anderson would have to settle for third.

The whole K&N backed team was thrilled with the weekend’s results as RJ showed he has the speed to dominate in an increasingly competitive Pro-Lite class as well as running up front in both Pro 2 races. RJ would like to thank all of the friends, family and teammates who came out to support the RJ37 team. RJ Anderson and the team would also like to express their gratitude toward gracious sponsors, such as K&N Air Filters, that make this all happen. The Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series rolls into Tooele, Utah over Father’s Day weekend June 20-21 and the RJ37 team will be there ready to back up their results.
