Last weekend Twitch, Deegan & Ox invaded Surprise, AZ to lay down some laps and cause mayhem at the Lucas Oil Off Road Series. Long time friend and rally racer Tanner Foust joined in on the fun under the Metal Mulisha command post riding with Ox and Twitch in the Super Lites class. On Friday during practice Twitch started off the weekend with a blown motor. Working through the night the crew was able to put in a new motor and get Twitch back on the dirt. During Saturday’s qualifying rounds Twitch lost 3rd gear and ended up qualifying in 11th position. Tanner Foust qualified an impressive 3rd place on Saturday and Ox despite a gnarly rollover in Turn 1, qualified right behind Tanner locking down a 4th place position.
During the Super Lite main event Tanner received a black flag and was put out of the race. Twitch led the pack locking down a 3rd place position just short of 2nd place, while Ox finished an impressive 4th place.Â Deegan got off to a great start on Saturday qualifying in 1st position, but that was short lived when his truck broke down during Saturday’s main putting him out of the race.
Back on track Sunday Deegan, Twitch, Ox and Tanner could taste victory. During Sunday’s Pro Lite main event, a pissed off Deegan started the race in 8th position. Moving aggressively through the pack, Deegan managed to make his way up to a contending position. Battling for 1st place, Deegan put it all on the line and ended up locking down a 1st place podium! Sunday’s Super Lite race kept fans on the edge of their seats. At the start of the race Ox took the early lead ahead of Twitch and Tanner. Coming from behind, Twitch worked his way passed Ox to lead the pack the remainder of the race taking home a 1st place finish. Ox, had some complications with his truck causing him to get pushed to the back of the pack to finish in a disappointing 10th place. During the race while fighting for 3rd place, Tanner suffered a suspension component failure in the whoop section causing him to pull off the track early. At the end of all the mayhem and carnage, the Mulisha walked away with 3 podium finishes and a kick ass video!Â
