Steele Racing Makes Progress During Busy Month Of Racing In April

Throughout the month of April, Steele Racing made its presence felt at every major off-road racing series in the country thanks to a loaded schedule of competition. From the opening round of The Off-Road Championship (TORC) to SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road (SEFOR) and Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORS), Steele Racing was out in full force looking to make some headway in the early part of the 2014 racing season.

n his first full season of Pro Lite (LOORS) competition, Scotty Steele knows there will be a lot to learn as he makes him climb towards the upper echelon of the highly competitive division. Whether in LOORS or TORC, the Pro Lite and Pro Light (TORC) classes feature the largest number of competitors and the closest competition of any division in short course off-road.

Scotty began the month of April by paying a visit to Primm, Nevada, on April 5-6 for the opening round of the TORC season. This signified his debut in the championship, which primarily consists of rounds throughout the Great Lakes region. After taking the opportunity to acclimate himself to racing in TORC during qualifying, Scotty showed how quickly he can adapt in the Pro Light class by making a charge from outside the top 10 to within reach of the top five until the transmission broke and ended his race early with a 16th-place finish. On the second day of racing, Scotty overcame the misfortune of the previous outing and the adversity of starting at the tail end of the field to pass 12 other trucks and post an impressive seventh-place finish.

The experience in Primm gave Scotty confidence heading into the second stop of SEFOR in conjunction with IndyCar’s world renowned Long Beach Grand Prix in California on April 13. After a solid qualifying effort, Scotty was ready to challenge for his second podium finish in the series. He got off to a strong start on the legendary street circuit and showed impressive speed in the opening laps until he lost another transmission in his truck, finishing eighth. While his results in three races haven’t been an indicator of how well he’s driving, Scotty is proving to be one of the most promising young drivers in SEFOR.

After taking advantage of a brief break in competition for Easter, Scotty was back in action on April 25-26 for the third and fourth rounds of LOORS competition in Lake Elsinore, California, which featured the first night racing of the 2014 season. A slow start to the weekend forced Scotty into the LCQ where her performed valiantly and battled for the win until a late spin unfortunately dropped him to third and out of the main event. However, the team bounced back on Day 2 and helped Scotty fight his way into the main event. He settled into a race pace during the opening laps but started to make his move forward in the middle stages of the race with sights set on the top 10. Hard luck struck again in the closing laps as another mechanical gremlin resulted in a fire in the truck and a 16th-place result for Scotty.

Although luck didn’t appear to be on Steele Racing’s side throughout Scotty’s efforts in April, he and the team made major strides in taking the next step towards becoming a contender in the Pro Lite division. Scotty continues to feel more comfortable in the truck and is picking up his aggression every time he hits the track, leaving the entire team optimistic for the races that lie ahead in May.
