WSORR 2008: Wandahsega wins during season opener weekend


Team Toyo Off-Road driver, Ben Wandahsega, piloted his Chevy Silverado to an SRT Super Truck class win this past Sunday during the season opening weekend of the US-based World Series of Off-Road Racing (WSORR). The E3 Sparkplugs "Show-Me State Showdown" presented by Dixie Choppers was held at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri (USA).

Due to intense rains caused by a massive storm, the only full "Round 1" race held on Saturday was the SRT Super Truck class. Visibility was the worst ever experienced by Wandahsega, as he struggled to see the race course before driving into a light pole. Sunday was a different story as the clay track was in great shape and the returning WSORR champion won the second round of the SRT Super Truck class on his 35X12.50R17 D.O.T. Open Country M/TR tires.

"We ran a flawless race on Sunday," said a delighted Wandahsega. "Our Toyo Open Country M/T tires worked great and were still in really super shape at the end of the race."

Kevin Probst was another Team Toyo Off-Road driver who overcame adversity during the weekend. While leading Round 1 of the Pro 2WD class with his brand new Chevy Silverado truck, Probst had a spectacular crash resulting in a violent series of flips, sending him to the pits for repairs. Also competing in Pro 2WD on Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires, Dave Waldvogel piloted his Chevy Silverado to a third place finish in the same race. Not to be counted out, Probst rebuilt his damaged truck to compete in Round 2 later in the day, placing second in his class while gaining the respect of fellow racers for his determination.
