JEFF KINCAID WINS FIRST PRO LIGHT PICKUP CHALLENGE CUP RACE AT CRANDON RACEWAY
CRANDON, Wis. -Jeff Kincaid drove to an emotional win in the first ever "Decision at Sundown" Forest County Potawatomi Challenge Cup race at his hometown track, Crandon Raceway. Just prior to the race, Kincaid led his family members and the rest of the PRO Light Pickup competitors on a black flag lap to honor Jeff's recently deceased brother Doug, who was a popular member of the Crandon and off-road communities.
"This one was for Dougie," Jeff said in victory circle amongst a throng of family and crew members as he collected a large winner's wreath, Potawatomi Challenge Cup trophy and a winner's check in the amount of $4200. "I'm not only dedicating this race, but my entire career to my brother who was such a huge part of my life and this race team," he added.
Chad Hord in his Lucas Oil Boss Kumho Nissan took the hole shot at the start of off-road's first PRO Light Challenge Cup race but a wild wreck in Crandon Raceway's famous Potawatomi turn one took three of the PRO Light competitors out of the race blocking the track and forcing a restart. This time, Kincaid's Potawatomi-sponsored BFG Toyota grabbed the hole shot and never looked back. He was chased by Hord and Kyle LeDuc in his Rockstar Toyo Ford. When Hord was sidelined with mechanical issues, Kincaid cruised to the win and Josh Hintz in his Dedicated Systems Toyo Nissan battled hard to grab the final podium spot behind Kincaid and LeDuc.
The special PRO Light Challenge Cup race on Friday night kicked off a full weekend of Lucas Oil World Series of Off-Road Racing at the BorgWarner World Championships in Crandon. Three PRO classes highlight the weekend's action along with eight SRT division battles in two rounds of WSORR racing on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday's races are also for off-road's coveted World Championship titles.
