Brian Deegan celebrated his fifth Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) Short Course championship this past weekend at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Elsinore, California.
Deegan entered the final round of the LOORRS PRO LITE series leading the championship point standings by 50 points, and finished by bringing home the 2013 PRO LITE championship, the third PRO LITE title of his career. In addition to winning the PRO LITE championship, Deegan finished second in the 2013 LOORRS PRO 2 point standings.
Deegan’s sponsor, Odyssey Battery, was quick to offer congratulations and support for “The General”: “We are proud to be the official battery sponsor of Brian Deegan, providing Odyssey batteries to get through each race with the extreme power and performance needed to handle the intense demands of off-road racing,” said Dave McMullen, director of commercial marketing for Odyssey Battery EnerSys.
