Heger Wins National Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Championship in YXZ1000R
MARIETTA, Ga. – October 25, 2018 – Yamaha Racing announces factory-supported bLU cRU racer Brock Heger captured the 2018 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) Production 1000 UTV Class national championship this past weekend at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona. For the second year in a row, Heger claims the $15,000 Yamaha bLU cRU bonus in his YXZ1000R.
“Yamaha sends a big congratulations to Brock Heger, along with his entire team, who put up another incredible performance this year, successfully defending the LOORRS Production 1000 UTV national title in a YXZ1000R,” said Donnie Luce, Yamaha’s off-road racing coordinator. “Heger performed with unmatched consistency as the only racer in the class to finish on the podium ten times or more – for two years in a row.”
Heger earned his second-straight LOORRS Production 1000 UTV national championship and Yamaha’s $15,000 bLU cRU championship bonus in his Jeremy McGrath Motorsports / Maxxis / ICON Vehicle Dynamics YXZ1000R. This year, Heger finished on the podium in all but one race, including four first-place finishes. His 536 points earned him an impressive 64-point lead to finish the season.
In the Arizona Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Series (LORORS), bLU cRU Racer Paul O’Brien is chasing the Production 1000 UTV championship and $5,000 bLU cRU bonus in his Weller Racing YXZ1000R SS (Sport Shift), currently holding a 43-point lead with two rounds remaining on November 3 and 4 at Wild Horse Motorsports Park. Also in the LORORS Arizona series, fellow bLU cRU racer, Jason Weller, currently sits eight points out from finishing third overall in his Weller Racing YXZ1000R.
