The two-day, two-round event was held on
one of the trickiest courses on the tour.
Along with long straightaways, flat jumps
and a sandy racing surface, the course features
one of the most difficult rhythm section in
Lucas Oil competition.
Racing's Brock Heger claimed the win
on Sunday in the Pro Production UTV
In the UTV Production races, Heger won on
Saturday and finished third on Sunday. The
defending champion has now finished on the
podium in all three races this season.
“The Yamaha was hooked up and the Weller
Racing motor was super fast,” said Heger.
“Unfortunately, we got caught in some traffic
on Sunday and then it spread out. I’m pumped
on our performance and I’m looking forward
to the next race.”
Racing's Jason Weller grabbed the early
lead on Sunday & finished 2nd in
the Pro Production UTV class in his
Jason Weller finished fifth Saturday’s Production
race and second on Sunday. He made an impressive
start in Sunday’s race, taking the lead with
a hard charge through the rhythm section.
“The Yamaha is awesome,” said Weller. “I
could take that thing right now and run another
race with it. It’s solid and it’s fast. It
took everything I gave it. Last year, I was
10th and eighth here so to come out and get
a fifth and a second is awesome for me.”
Corry Weller and O’Brien drove their Can-Am
Maverick X3’s to victories in the UTV Production
Turbo class. In Saturday’s race, Weller and
O’Brien traded the lead several times before
Weller came away victorious with O’Brien second.

Can-Am Maverick X3
O’Brien has now finished on the podium in
all three races this season. He said Corry
Weller and him had two great battles and they
play off of each others success.
“We’re so close in speed; every time I go
faster, she goes faster and every time she
goes faster, I go faster,” said O’Brien. “This
is great for Can-Am. Polaris has dominated
this series for so long and now Can-Am has
a presence here. The cars are great.”
Corry Weller hadn’t raced the Estero Beach
course before the weekend, but continued to
excel on the tough course despite her lack
of experience. She credited her Maxxis Liberty
tires for her competitive results.
“The tires have a tough eight-ply wall and
there are a lot of rocks and glass here so
it was definitely the right tire choice,”
said Weller. “The Can-Am has been a lot of
fun with the turbo. You can really feel it
kick in on these long straights. This is my
first year working with Can-Am and they’ve
been phenomenal from day one. Dragonfire is
our title sponsor and is a huge part of us
being out here and Full Throttle Battery also
came on strong for us this year.”
The Weller Racing team will be back in action
as the Lucas Oil Series heads back to the
United States for rounds four and give at
Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO June 23-24.
