Campbell Racing LOORRS Update From Speedworld

CampbellSpeedworldMay 22, 2012, Gilbert, AZ – Shannon Campbell of Campbell Racing headed to Speedworld Raceway in Surprise, AZ last weekend for Rounds 5 & 6 of the LOORRS Series.

The #5 Ford/ProAm/Goodyear/SDHQ Prolite battled it out at the “Duel In The Desert” in the largest class of the series. Saturday with 23 trucks qualifying Campbell would be starting in the back after making contact with another truck during qualifying on Friday. By avoiding pile ups and driving through traffic, Shannon held the throttle and pulled through each corner and crossed the finish line in 7th position.

There would be no qualifying for Sunday’s main event and drivers were positioned according to Saturday’s finishing spot and series points and to top it off the field was inverted at 6. The #5 would be starting on the pole! Not expecting that after making so many adjustments Saturday night the whole team was nervous and excited. Coming around for the green flag Campbell jumped the table top on the front straight and would hang on to second place going into turn 1.

Maintaining his 2nd place position for the first 5 laps Shannon drove hard but unfortunately suffered a mechanical issue and slowly dropped out of podium contention to finish in 13th. Shannon said, “We are still learning. Our set ups are getting better and I’m getting used to the truck”.

“I am very appreciative for all of the advice and help I have gotten from my teammates and the hard work my team has done this weekend. The heat was brutal but it was worth it”.
