FALKEN TIRES And Cole Mamer Score First Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series National Win
SAN BERNARDINO, CA – Demonstrating his strong off-road proficiency as he has all season, Team Falken’s Cole Mamer scored his first Lucas Oil Off Road Series National win in the Pro Lite class this past weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif.
In very hot conditions on a dry and dusty track, Mamer, running Falken WILDPEAK A/T3W tires, proved he had the best Pro Lite among a crowded field.
Mamer qualified second in Saturday’s race, but the starting order was reversed, placing his vehicle in front. He controlled the lead and never looked back, heading all 14 laps of the 8/10ths-mile track.
“The pack of Pro Lite trucks was extremely competitive, but my Falken WILDPEAKs were in their element, and were hooking up hard,” Mamer noted. “It was a real fun run and I’m so glad to get a win.”
“Cole has been a consistent performer at many of the Lucas Oil Off-Road races throughout the country this season,” noted Brandon Barberena, Falken’s Supervisor, Light Truck and Off-Road Events, “and while he’s done extremely well, this is his first win, and we’re all so proud of his accomplishment.
“Cole had a setback in Friday’s race and we had to put the truck back together for Saturday,” Barberena added, “but his spirits are always high and his determination strong, and together with Falken’s support, we came away victorious from the Rockstar Energy Golden State Off Road Nationals presented by Mike Thompson's RV.”
The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is a short course off-road racing series that features 12 events on the West Coast of the United States, from March to October. The series has gained a strong following of both entrants and fans over the many years the series has run under the guidance of Lucas Oil.
