Being consistent is the way you win championships. Winning races is what you strive for every time you are out on the track, and also knowing there is a long term goal you must keep focused on. Carl Renezeder knows what it takes to win championships; he has won nine championships and eight cup victories in his career. Carl's plan for the 2016 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series in both his Pro 2 and his Pro 4 trucks is to win the championship.

At the beginning of the year Carl and his team made a decision to return to BFGoodrich Tires as one of their sponsors. Carl said "I started my racing career with BFGoodrich and I am excited about returning to my original partnership with the brand." Carl has been partnered with K&N Filters for over 12 years and he uses K&N air filters and oil filters, and the degreaser cleaner in all of his race trucks, haulers, and team vehicles. Carl said "K&N is the industry leader, there is no better filter out there, we're proud to be able to run K&N products in our race trucks and support vehicles, and value our partnership with K&N Filters."

Carl started off the season with a bang in Chandler, AZ. In round 1, Carl battled for the lead in his Pro 4 but just barely missed the top spot and ended up finishing in second. In his Pro 2 he had several hard battles just missing out on the podium in fourth. In round 2, Carl let everyone know that he was back and ready to fight for the championship in both his Pro 4 and Pro 2 trucks. Carl dominated the Pro 4 race, leading every lap of the race for his first win of the year. Right after that he came out and raced just like they never waived the checkered flag and continued straight to victory lane in the Pro 2. This was his first win in the Pro 2 since 2014, and also gave him his 120th win of his career.

With rounds 3 and 4 in Lake Elsinore, CA, Carl and his team were able to work hard at the shop and get some good testing in at the local track of his. The Pro 2 didn't go as planned and he had several hard battles with the top drivers, finishing seventh and eighth. With such a talented field of drivers, every point is crucial and Carl is able to hold a fourth place spot in the championship, only a few points down. It was in the Pro 4 that he let everyone know he is back and at the top of his game. In round 3, Carl battled for the top spot the entire race just missing it once again and coming in second. In round 4, he was very fast and was able to get out in front and stayed there, finishing on top of the podium for the second time of the year, and also his 121st career win, and first place in the championship points battle.

Carl said 'We have been working hard during testing to make the trucks better. Our BFGoodrich tires have been hooking up very well and with the horsepower we have from Pro Power, we had to come up with a new plan for the Pro 4, it worked incredibly well. We can move that same set up over to the Pro 2 and hopefully it will respond the same way. I'm so proud of our team, this is the payoff for all the hard work my crew puts in each week."

Hard work and dedication is helping Carl to stay consistent and focused toward the end result, the championship. They are looking forward to rounds 5 and 6 at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah, and they know this is what it takes to be first at the end of the year.
