Early last month, Adler kicked off his 2018 off-road racing season at the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona.

“I started racing off-road when I was just out of college,” Adler commented. “It was something I always wanted to do—so in 1989, I started racing the Baja 1000, and did the desert thing for a while. Short course came to the west coast, and once I saw this up close and got a taste of it, I was hooked.”

Adler’s first short-course race was in 2004 at the Crandon International Raceway. His career has been characterized by multiple podium finishes, including 1st place in Pro-2 for Round 2 of the Lucas Oil Series in 2012, and podium finishes in Chandler, Arizona and Ensenada, Mexico as part of the 2017 Lucas Oil Series.

K&N products have been a big part of Adler’s racing career, and he continues to use a K&N E-3760 14” round air filter in his 800-horsepower Pro4 short course truck. “When we’ve been racing out here, whether it be in the desert or short course, we always look to partner with the best companies that we can—and K&N has been just a terrific partner in my racing since my early days,” he remarked. “There’s no other product you can buy where you get that bang for your buck with performance. We’re running fifty thousand-dollar motors, so I need to have the best protection for this thing to keep it alive—hopefully all year long. The K&N filters do that for me.”

While contact with another vehicle necessitated an early end to Adler’s race in Chandler, Arizona on April 14, the team is already preparing for the upcoming races on Estero Beach in Ensenada, Mexico.

We can look forward to watching Greg in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Series. His next race will be on May 19 in Ensenada, Mexico, at the 4th Annual Rockstar Energy Battle South of the Border presented by Lucas Oil.
