Rahders Wins at LORRS Round 2 and 3
With the Lucas Oil Off-Road Regional Series holding both Rounds 2 and 3 on the same weekend, Cody Rahders took the opportunity to rebound from a DNF while leading at Round 1 to win both Round 2 and 3 of the Production 1000 class, in his 2015 Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS.
After spending Friday with Justin Lambert of Cognito Motorsports taking lap times and Brandon Hong from Sparks Racing dialing in his clutch, Rahders went on to place second in Saturday’s qualifier for Round 2 of the series. In the main event, he started in fourth position and by the exit of turn one, he was leading and never looked back for his first win of the 2015 season.
On Sunday for Round 3, Rahders set the fastest lap in qualifying, giving him the outside starting position in the third row. At the start, he moved from sixth to fourth by the exit of turn one and would be leading the field by lap 5. From there, Rahders laid down laps until he had more than a 10-car lead at the finish for his second win of the weekend.
“My new RZR is so good, it does exactly what I want it to do when I want it to do it, it’s hooked up and fast,” says Rahders. “Every part we are using works perfect. It needs nothing, the car works so good.”
