Jason Scherer has been racing for more than 18 years. He has won numerous races and has topped the podium at many events. In 2009, he won the King of the Hammers and has finished on the podium seven times in the last eight years. He has also won the Metalcloak Stampede and Ultra4 Nitto National Championship Races. He also won the Pro-Rock Championship in 2006. He has also been nominated twice for Dirt Sports Driver of the Year.
Scherer is looking to join the club of repeat winners. This year he will race with Jason Berger in a 1972 Jeep CJ-6. It’s not an easy task to make this car two-seater.
Zach Bell was the quickest on Saturday and held a commanding lead for most of Sunday’s Pro race. He lost some ground to Stewart in the first corner but recovered to go on and win. Stewart closed on Bell on the final lap and had little chance of catching him as the race ended in a crash.
The course was well prepared by the Prairie Dogs MC and Glen Helen, and the cool weather favored good racing. Zach looked and felt his best once he relaxed.
After winning the 2017 Glen Helen race, Kyle LeDuc won the Pro 4 Unlimited class. The #99 Ford F-150 driven by Kyle LeDuc is sponsored by Monster Energy and Toyo Tires. He won both Rounds 9 and 10 and took home a $5,000 bounty. LeDuc is from Cherry Valley, California.
The win was LeDuc’s sixth career victory in Glen Helen. Renezeder, the reigning Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Pro4 Unlimited truck champion, had been in third place when he rolled his truck on the backstretch whoops section. It cost him valuable time and nearly cost him the victory. Then, on the final lap, he crashed into a rut. Then, he crashed in front of the crowd of approximately 6,500 fans.
LeDuc is a big favorite in this year’s Pro 4 off-road racing series. He has won seven of the first ten races this season. The only other driver to defeat him this season is Ricky Johnson. During the season, he has a lead over everyone but LeDuc.
At Glen Helen Raceway, Joel Hetrick won the Pro ATV race. He finished ahead of Cody Sanford, who finished second. Both riders are part of the Rocky Mountain ATV MC WORCS Series. The Glen Helen Raceway is a multi-track motocross track that includes a deep mud hole, rock sections, and logs. Joel Hetrick says he was amazed by the deep mud hole.
Beau Baron usually rides in the front group, but this weekend he almost dropped out and was stuck in the second wave. He regrouped, however, and climbed up to third by the end of lap one, trailing only Eichner. With half the race remaining, Sloan reeled him in, but Baron was still more than a second ahead at the checkered flag.
The Rocky Mountain ATV MC WORCS series continued to dominate the season at Glen Helen Raceway. Beau Baron won the WCGP Pro II class, and was 12th overall. Mitch Anderson was second in class and finished 13th overall, while Clay Hengeveld took third in the Pro ATV class. The race was close, as the top five Pro ATVs were surrounded by a small field.
