The Southern California Lucas Oil Regional short course races are some of the most thrilling off-road races you will ever see. Perhaps the most exciting class is the SR1 Championship. These sport bike powered UTV’s fly around the track at blistering speeds, catching air and going door to door in a very competitive field of racers. Two Brothers Racing recently visited Glen Helen Raceway to cheer on sponsored driver Brandon Kilgore and enjoy some of this heart pounding action for round 1 of short course racing.
Brandon showed everyone that he was all business qualifying in the number one spot out front of some of the biggest names in the sport. The green flag dropped and Brandon put the hammer down battling off the heat to snatch an early lead. Lap after lap Brandon and his Two Brothers backed racecar ran flawlessly. At the mandatory caution Brandon maintained his lead but had veteran racer Dustin Nelson breathing down his neck. The green flag waived once again and the sprint to the finish was underway. Brandon and Dustin pulled away from the pack as they squeezed every once of power they could out of their machines. Nearing the final lap a slight mistake in a corner allowed Dustin to sneak by placing Brandon in 2nd. Never giving up the two battled all the way to the finish.
The Two Brothers Racing crew couldn’t be happier with Brandon and his efforts. It was by far the most exciting race of the day and Brandon pushed his Two Brothers sponsored ride to the limits earning a spot on the podium with a solid 2nd place finish. Next stop is round 2 & 3 at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park as we look forward to an awesome 2016 race season.
