Brian Deegan Wins Big For His Hometown Fans
Brian Deegan was more than happy to give fans what they wanted at rounds 13 and 14 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, Ca. Deegan has a huge fan following wherever he goes, but the fans in Lake Elsinore take special pride in watching their home town champion run out front. Deegan lives right down the road from the track and on two wheels and four, has been setting the dirt on fire there for many years…
Deegan and the crew had the NOS Energy Drink, Mickey Thompson Tires, Ford Raptor Pro-2 ready to rock, right out of the trailer. They were fastest in practice session 2 on Thursday, and followed it up with a second place qualifying time on Friday.
During Friday night’s round 13, Deegan jumped out to the early lead and battled back and forth with Rob Mac for the win. The two were swapping the lead by only inches, running side by side, on each lap. It was one of the most exciting races of the season. Deegan finished on the box in second; great results but not enough for the multi-time champion.
On Saturday, Deegan was even quicker; qualifying in the number one spot. At the drop of the green flag, he was out front again. Spurred on by the fans who packed the stands to capacity, and Daughter Hailee’s second place podium which extends her points lead in Modified Kart, Deegan was putting on a demonstration of precision driving. His NOS Energy Drink, Ford was hooked up and it became obvious to everyone that he was not going to be beaten. The standing room only crowd went nuts when he took the checkered flag.
