HORD POWERS TO VICTORY LANE AND CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS LEAD AT ERX

Chad Hord ERX Off-Road National Race Report

Elk River, MN - After a very strong Crandon debut cut short by inclement weather, Chad Hord and the Hord Off-Road Racing Team headed to Elk River, Minnesota to do battle at the Midwest Short Course League's shortest but most punishing track: ERX Motor Park. The three-year-old world-class one-mile short course track features a split lane, sandy traps throughout, and so many jumps you could swear you spend more time in the air than on the dirt. These features combined with major elevation changes had drivers battling the course just as much as the other drivers, and fuel pressure struggles proved to be a recurring theme for PRO 2 competitors throughout the weekend.

Once again, Mother Nature threatened the schedule for Rounds 3 and 4, as several bouts of rain forced the cancellation of Thursday’s badly-needed practice round. Hord would have to jump right into qualifying in his second event back in the PRO 2. Fortunately, Friday morning’s storms ducked south of Elk River and conditions were hot and sunny for the rest of the event, allowing the rest of the event to proceed as scheduled.

Hord posted a top-5 qualifying time right out of the gate, and with a convenient 6-truck inversion, started on the front row in Friday’s main event. Daely Pentico had the lead out of Turn One, but Hord took advantage of an early mistake and seized the lead on the first lap.
