NEW SERIES, NEW CLASS, STRONG START FOR #9 CHAD HORD

Spring Crandon Race Report

Crandon, WI (June 17, 2018)--After a longer-than-usual offseason thanks to changes in the sanctioning body for Midwest short course racing, Chad Hord returned to Crandon International Off-Road Raceway for the debut of the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League. With a new truck for the 2018 season, the Hord Racing crew was busy right up until the last minute prepping the Lucas Oil, Ponsse, Maxxis, Vision Wheel PRO 2. Chad was looking forward to getting some seat time in before the first race.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature once again left her mark on the Spring Crandon race, as heavy rains through Friday forced the cancellation of all practices and qualifying. Rain continued into Saturday morning, causing a delay to opening ceremonies. Racing was finally able to begin and several sportsman classes did vintage battle on the extremely muddy track. Go time drew near for Hord and he began to prepare for staging for the day’s race.

But just before the PRO 2 race was slated to begin, the skies opened up once again and another round of heavy rain proved to be the death knell for Round 1 racing. Hord and his competitors would have to wait until Sunday for their first bout of 2018.

Fortunately, the sun made a rare appearance in the midday on Sunday and began to dry out the hallowed dirt at Crandon raceway. Due to the Community Cup Challenge in the afternoon, the PRO 2 race was slated in the early part of the schedule. Because all practice and qualifying had to be cancelled, a random draw determined starting order for Sunday’s race. As luck would have it, Hord drew the second place starting position out of the stacked 15-truck field. With no practice time, could the Lucas Oil, Ponsse, Maxxis, Vision Wheel PRO 2 get on the podium in it's debut?
