Lucas off road racing series set to finish season in Lake Elsinore

The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series wraps up its season this weekend at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Riverside County.

The series features different classes of trucks and other off-road vehicles. They'll practice Friday and race in separate rounds Saturday and Sunday.

Carl Renezeder of Laguna Beach already has clinched the series title in the premier Pro 4 class, for four-wheel-drive, full-size trucks with engines of 700-plus horsepower. Renezeder also won the series' prior stop in Lake Elsinore in May.

Other leading drivers in the series include Kyle Leduc of Beaumont and Greg Adler of Manhattan Beach.

Farther north, NASCAR's K&N; Pro Series West -- stock car racing's equivalent of single-A baseball -- returns to Bakersfield on Saturday with its first visit to the new Kern County Raceway Park, a half-mile, high-banked track. Derek Thorn of Lakeport, Calif., leads the series standings.
