A Clean Sweep at the Brush Run
It was a clean sweep weekend, with two wins, at the Forest County Potowatomi Brush Run at Crandon International Off Road Raceway for Taylor Racing in the Skyjacker, BFGoodrich, Ford F-150.
The race started with a clean land rush start. As the field came sweeping through the first turn Scott found himself in third place. As the front three trucks went into the Argonne Corner, Scott and his Skyjacker BFGoodrich Tires Ford F-150 applied the horsepower from his Roush Performance powerplant, and came out in the lead. At the finish Scott won his second round of racing of the 2004 season in a convincing manner.
The start of Round 5 found Evan Evans, Dan Vandenheuvel and Scott Taylor running neck and neck during the opening laps. On lap three Scott and Vandenhuvel battled side by side, with Scott taking the position for good halfway through the lap. As Scott caught the leader, Evan Evans, Carl Renezeder was right on Scott's bumper. As the three entered the Argonne Corner, Scott used his BFGoodrich tires to apply the Roush Performance power and came out in the lead. The rest of the way Scott ran a smooth race, hitting all his marks, keeping Evans at bay. In the end Scott came home with his third victory of the year.
Scott Taylor thanks all his crew and sponsors for a Clean Sweep weekend. After 5 rounds of racing, Scott Taylor has a total of 87 points, 15 points ahead of second place.
In the Governors Cup Race Scott Taylor and Kevin Probst, both from Illinois, were in position to prove, when conditions are right, that a 2WD CORR truck can compete with the 4WD competitors. At the start, Scott and Probst battled for the lead, with Scott leading after the first lap. By the second lap the 4WD field had caught Scott. As the battle continued, Scott was determined to keep the 2WD pride alive. His determination wasn't enough as Renezeder made contact with him in the Gravel Pit and spun his truck. In the process four trucks went by and soon after Scott's truck developed a flat tire. Scott continued on to finish 5th overall and was the second place 2WD truck.
