Rockstar Hart and Huntington Premiere Motorsports Group Looking to Surprise Arizona
At SpeedWorld Off Road Park
Rockstar Hart and Huntington’s Carey Hart, Josh Merrel, Chris Brandt and Chad Leising jetted out with the crew of Premiere Motorsports Group to Surprise Arizona. The mission was to dial in the Team’s flagship Unlimited Programs at the SpeedWorld Off Road Park.
Hart has competed in all of the 2009 Lucas Oil Off Road Series events, but recently took the wheel of a state of the art Unlimited-2. With only two races with the new truck, Carey is filling confident and currently riding 5th in points. Before the testing started, Carey explained, “Our goal here is to achieve a podium in all divisions, this requires seat time and lots of testing.”
The newest addition to the Rockstar Hart and Huntington PMG stable is a high tech Unlimited-4. This 4WD truck powered by a 800+ HP Pro Power Ford, is quite a step up from Josh Merrel’s Pro Spec Chassis that he operated at the previous LOORRS events. Previously owned and driven by Off Road Champion Scott Douglas, this new equipment is capable of placing Rockstar PMG on the U-4 podium. At the end of the day, Josh stated, “I am new to the division and this sport as a whole. We are working hard out here in the Arizona Summer to make sure that I am ready and the truck is suited for my driving style.“
Chad Leising has been extremely impressive in the Bullydog SuperLite Division. Facing his fare share of trials throughout the season, Chad has overcome many struggles and has firmly secured 2nd position and only 10 points behind John Harrah. Coming right off a late night Dyno Session, Chad is running a lower horse power motor that should last him the rest of the season. Despite the limited power, Leising pushed the #17 Lucas Oil Hart and Huntington SuperLite to its limits and shaved off nearly 3 seconds off his personal best track record. You can count on Chad earning multiple podiums on any race weekend.
Team Leader, Ryan Busnardo stated, “Testing was a success. We ran approximately 50 laps with both the Unlinted-2 and Unlimited-4. It is now time to tear them down, clean them up, reassemble, and prepare for the next event. We have had two great test sessions now and will soon be ready for the race in October. Rockstar Hart and Huntington Premiere Motorsports Group will be hitting it hard in all divisions of competition.”
After the successful test session, Crew Chief for Premiere Motorsports Group, Blake Wilkey shared these comments “By making some shock adjustments and experimenting with front tire grooves, we have reduced lap times significantly. Bill Smith from Pro Fab Motorsports has been a tremendous asset to the team this week, assisting us with tuning, tire set up, and shock adjustments. I believe we are going to make an big impact out here in a couple weeks.
Residents from all around can be part of the action surrounding the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Starting on Wednesday, October 14th, there will be a singing with Carey Hart from 6 - 8pm at Dillards Department Store located at 7800 W. Arrowhead Town Center Glendale, Az. 85308.
