General Tire dominates the podium at LOORRS Round 7 and 8

Round 7 and 8 of the legendary series were sizzling this weekend for the Team GT powerhouse.  Saturday, Casey Currie topped the podium in Prolite and Quentin Tucker took home first in Limited Buggy on General Tires.  The series got even hotter Sunday when Wyatt Kirchner took first in SuperLite, followed by brother Dawson Kirchner in third. To top off the heart-pounding weekend, Robby Woods stole third in Pro 2.

After the LOORRS Opening Ceremonies Saturday, the crowd was ready to get back into the action with the Pro 4 Unlimited race.  Renezeder started out in the front row and grabbed an early lead.  He fought hard, but was muscled out of his position after door-to-door contact with another driver.  He fell into second but pushed hard in the final lap, trying to regain his lead.  The gap between first and second was too large at this point, but Renezeder fought to the last second, taking home a close second.

Currie hit the track in the Prolite race, leading the pack in the top five.  A massive crash broke up the race early on and Currie held fourth after the restart.  Another crash and more carnage brought out full-course yellow.  After the second restart, Currie held second and an intense battle for the lead ensued.  After several laps of back-and-forth, Currie crossed the finish line, taking first and making it the first win for a V-8-powered Prolite Unlimited.

On Sunday, Renezeder took to the track for more action-packed chaos and another shot at victory.  Renezeder shot to the head of the pack early on.  While an intense battle persisted behind him, he sailed smoothly along with a sizable lead, claiming first on the podium in Pro 4 and taking home the 96th win of his career.
