Hot Laps: Kipp Mickels

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I started off racing in the desert in 2012 we built a Polaris RZR and started racing BITD. Then shortly after that I also started racing the WORCS short course racing. In between these series I would go to the grand prix races. In 2 of the Worcs races they incorporate the Lucas track in their track and I took a liking to the track. When I had heard that Lucas had a UTV class I decided to go to a race, and from there I was hooked. Then from watching the Pro Lite class “I thought one day I’m gonna’ do that”. An opportunity came my way and I ended up with a pro lite spec truck.

Hot Laps: Jessie Owens

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you into the Lucas Oil Regional Series: What brought me into the Lucas Oil Regional Series is that my dad owns a business called Xtreme Machine and Fabrication. His business builds Prolites, Mod Karts, RZR 1000 and RZR 170s. I was looking for a way to race that we could afford.

Hot Laps: Jimmy Weitzel III

Tell us about your racing background and what brought you to the Lucas Oil Regional Series: It all started when I was two years old doing donuts on my 50cc Quad.  I was so small I couldn’t even touch the floor guards. When I was five I got my first trophy kart and raced the Podium Series out at Lake Elsinore before they even had the main track they have today. I remember being the youngest driver and taking home first place for the championship. The season was over and I began racing motocross until my tenth birthday when my dad brought home my first ever Mod Kart. I raced Mods for 4 years and then had the opportunity to step into a Pro Lite for the first time this year.
