Crandon, WI — If you know off-road racing, you know Crandon, Wisconsin. The legendary “turn one” features a land rush start that is unexplainable to anyone who has not experienced it for themselves. Hord Racing was geared up and ready for the “thrill” that was sure to excite. Chad and his crew were busy right up until departure to make some final changes to the truck. After finally being able to run, Chad was very satisfied with the speed of the truck. After practicing on Friday, there were some minor changes to make before race time on Saturday. Chad was eager to make a lasting impression during his first race weekend back out on the track in the 2017 season.

With the season debut Hord Racing would also welcome Lucas Oil as the title sponsor for the Hord Racing Pro-4WD. Hord Racing is excited and hopeful for the partnership with Lucas Oil. Would Chad and the Lucas Oil, Ponsse, Maxxis Pro-4WD have the speed it needed to make an unforgettable debut at the legendary Crandon International Off-Road Raceway?


Two good practice rounds and the truck was ready for race time. Chad was looking forward to debuting the Lucas Oil, Ponsse, Maxxis #9. It was time to go green flag racing, off the start Chad had some unfortunate luck and broke the transmission. Having to pull into the hot pits right off the green flag, the crew quickly assessed the truck and no change could be make during race time. An unfortunate break for Chad and the crew. The crew would be hard at it to make a complete turnaround for two races on Sunday. Looking forward to revenge, Chad had his eyes set on Sunday, racing in not only the regular Pro-4WD class race, but also the Forest County Potawatomi Chairman’s Cup Race which featured both Pro-2WD and Pro-4WD trucks.


Saturday night, Crandon International Off-Road Raceway faced heavy rain. With a wet track, Chad and crew made some final changes right up until race time. Chad would have to start in the second row, in the eighth position, as starting position was based on points. Looking forward to a new start, Chad was dialed in.
