ATTURO DRIVER ANDREW CARLSON GRABS HOLESHOT AND WIN IN PRO 2 TORC SERIES RACE LABOR DAY WEEKEND IN CRANDON, WI


From TORC: The Off Road Championship Series

Labor Day weekend at Crandon not only brings out the best in a racer, it brings out the best racers too. Both PRO 2 and PRO Light saw the biggest fields of the 2017 season, and in the mix were past champions, top racers from the West Coast, and even an NHRA Top Fuel drag racer. But full starting grids and a mud-laden track didn't slow Andrew Carlson, who burst from the land rush start, held it on through a slick turn one, and never looked back.


Throughout the 9-lap final, only Brad Lovell had anything for Carlson. Lovell attempted to keep Carlson honest and show him a fender early after the competition caution, but that was as close as he ever got. Lovell looked to have second place well in hand, but a last-lap mechanical issue turned over the position to PRO 2 points leader Luke Johnson, who worked his way up from fifth and passed eventual third place finisher Eric Ruppel in the closing laps.




The win was Carlson's third in PRO 2, who made his debut in the class just a few races prior. "I've struggled at Crandon in the past," said Carlson after the race. "I've never had the holeshot here, but coming through turn one and not seeing anybody...I was ecstatic."





The Pro 2 Race Begins at 2:39:20

Carlson Wins Back 2 Back in Pro2 and Pro Light

From the TORC: The Off Road Championship Series Website:


The day’s most thrilling race came down to some corner contact between Andrew Carlson and TORC PRO 2 series point leader Luke Johnson. Carlson got the better of the situation as Johnson spun and Carlson went on to take the win. This was Carlson’s second PRO 2 win of the three PRO 2 races he has run this season.

“Truck’s [sic] got a bit of a bang on the side,” said Carlson, looking down at the area of his truck following the race where he got tangled with Johnson.

Johnson also remarked on the get-together that, “We were in tight, I was trying to fight back and did everything we could. I am happy to keep the points lead going.”

After successfully pulling the holeshot from the pole position and leading Johnson and Mitch Dorr up Horsepower Hill and out of the first turn, Carlson put his PRO 2 truck on a rail and held the lead through the competition yellow, and eventually the checkers.

Andrew Carlson had the prime starting position in PRO Light, which he parlayed into a holeshot and subsequent green-to-checkers first place finish in TORC’s PRO Light race on Saturday at RedBud, completing the PRO 2/PRO Light sweep.

“I knew the holeshot would be a huge part of this race,” said Carlson. “I knew if I could get out front and run clean, I could do it. This was the best track for PRO Lights all year.”

Carlson’s masterful performance was just waiting to be upset by top-qualifier Cam Reimers, who shadowed Carlson for the entire race but was unable to make a pass for the lead. “We were fast this morning, so was Andrew. And, we were able to reel him in, but it ended up being really tough to get around him,” said Reimers.
