Taylor sweeps Crandon
The perfect clear blue skies, with temperatures in the 80's, made for an incredible weekend of racing the world famous Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Scott Taylor and his Mobil 1 BFGoodrich Tires Ford F-150 came away with two dominating wins at the Forest County Potowatomi Brush Run to take sole possession of first place in the Lucas Oil CORR Pro-2 standings.
Round 5 started with the famous land rush start. As the group headed for the first turn Taylor found himself in 4th place. By the end of lap one, the power of the Roush prepared engine and the superior traction of the BFGoodrich tires enabled Taylor to garner 2nd place.
After a few laps, Taylor was able to chase down leader Kevin Probst. "The truck was absolutely awesome, we were able to pass for the lead on the outside, without having to "swap paint" with Kevin--"
The race ended with Scott Taylor in first; with a 18 second lead of the rest of the field.
Taylor says he dedicates this race to the awesome new BFGoodrich tires that keeps him in the lead and winning races.
Round 6 started the same way but came out of the Potowatomi Northern Lights Turn One in 2nd place after avoiding the spectacular multiple rollover of Tommy Bradley. Again he was chasing Kevin Probst. On lap 5, Taylor's patience paid off, as he made a clean pass to continue on for his 3rd victory of the year.
With a clean sweep of Rounds 5 and 6 of the CORR Lucas Oil Pro Series, Taylor now leads the division by 16 points, 90 to 74 over Carl Renezeder.
The "clean sweep" of the weekend is due to his great crew as well as all the support his sponsors give the Taylor Off-Road Racing Mobil 1 BFGoodrich Ford F-150.
Potowatomi North Lights Governor's Cup Heavy Metal Challenge
There was one more race left on the program, The Potowatomi North Lights Governor's Cup Heavy Metal Challenge. As the defending champion, Scott Taylor did his best for a repeat.
Unfortunately, the track conditions were slicker than they were all weekend long, giving the 4-wheel drive Pro-4 trucks a definite advantage. As the race progressed Taylor held his ground, and finished 3rd overall and was the highest finishing 2-wheel truck. Congratulations to fellow BFGoodrich driver Johnny Greaves for the well fought win.
The next race is the Boss Snowplow Challenge, July 12-13, in Bark River, Michigan.
