The John Holtger Racing Team made their 1st visit for the year to the track in Victorville, CA for rounds 4 & 5 of the Lucas Oil So-Cal Regional Off Road Racing Series. This was another double-header race weekend with races on Saturday and Sunday.
Going into Saturday’s race John was 2nd in points for this series with the hope of holding this spot, or moving into 1st!
8 drivers were registered to participate in the Mod Kart class on Saturday. John qualified 2nd, and with the invert was starting in the #1 spot! Holding #2 pretty strong throughout the race, John biked it on the final turn with 2 laps to go, allowing the truck in the #3 spot to get by him. Battling to get back into 2nd, John was able to do some quick maneuvering and finished the race with a 2nd place podium finish!
8 drivers participated in Sunday’s race as well. The day started out great again, with John qualifying 2nd, and with the invert was starting in the #1 spot just like Saturday! For the 1st half of the race John held onto the #2 spot. After the mandatory caution, John fell back to #3 and in turn 3 was spun out by the truck in the #4 spot. This caused him to stall out and have to restart. With only a couple of laps left in the race, John finished at the back of the pack.
Overall this was a very successful weekend, and leaves John in 2nd place for points in the So-Cal Regional Series!
