Nelson Wins Opening Rounds of LOORS SR1 Class
GBC Motorsports-backed racer Dustin Nelson came home with hardware this weekend after the first and second rounds of the SR1 Championship Series.
On night one Nelson earned the pole qualifying spot behind the wheel of his Yamaha Motor USA/Weller Racing SR1 car. He carried that momentum over to the race, where he took the checkers and the first place trophy. This is the first time he had driven this car, which was delivered to him at the race. Nelson chose to use the GBC Motorsports Dirt Tamers for the first night.
Weller Racing Wins 2012 SR1 Class Championship
Jason Weller set out at the beginning of 2012 to bring all of the Lucas Oil Regional SR1 class racers together in the form of a five-race SR1 Championship Series that was run within the existing Regional Series’ for Arizona and California. On top of accomplishing that goal, Jason would also go on to win the SR1 Championship in the AZ Regional Series, as well as in the SR1 Championship Series for 2012!
In what was a close race right to the very end, Jason would secure both Championship titles with a win at the 2012 LoanMart Regional Shootout in Las Vegas, where the final showdown took place between the California, Utah and Arizona Lucas Oil Regional racers.
With bragging rights on the line, Weller ran a flawless qualifying race in his LoanMart sponsored SR1, and backed it up with an exciting, position swapping main event race to the finish with fellow SR1 and CA Regional racer, Jimmy Fishback. With a drag race to the finish line that had the crowd on their feet, Weller just nosed out the win that would put him on top of two 2012 Championship titles.
