AIRAID Air Intake under the hood of VMM

Following a crash at Wild West Motorsports Park the Jeremy McGrath Motorsports team worked to repair the Pro 2 truck for the Las Vegas, Nevada LOORRS rounds 15 and 16

AIRAID Performance Filters supported Jeremy McGrath Motorsports had a busy month of September getting the Pro 2 truck repaired after a massive crash at Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, Nevada near Reno, Nevada. Jeremy McGrath, a 7-time 250cc AMA Supercross champion, was fortunate to have walked away from what many people have called one of the worst crashes in off-road short course history. Jeremy McGrath and fellow Pro 2 racer Carl Renezeder made contact at the end of the front straight away where the trucks were reaching speeds of 95 MPH. The Loctite - Fuel Off Road Wheels Pro 2 truck driven by Jeremy McGrath hit the end of a k-rail barrier and took flight. The truck rolled several times before coming to a stop on its roof in the middle of the track. Luckily, McGrath radioed his crew and told them he was okay and getting out of the truck.

The Loctite - Fuel Off Road Wheels Pro 2 truck ran great for LOORRS round 15 but a rock became wedged in the carburetor linkage forcing Jeremy McGrath to settle for 5th place

Following the crash at Wild West Motorsports Park the Jeremy McGrath Motorsports team worked every day to make all the necessary repairs and get the AIRAID filters equipped Pro 2 ready for the Las Vegas, Nevada rounds 15 and 16 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS). "It’s good to be at the track and have a new truck ready to race. Reno is behind us and we want to get back to winning." Jeremy told several fans during the Thursday practice session. The Loctite - Fuel Off Road Wheels Pro 2 truck ran great the next day for LOORRS round 15. Jeremy McGrath started the race from the fourth row but had moved up to the 4th spot by lap 10. On lap 13 bad luck struck again in the form of a rock that became wedged in the carburetor linkage. Jeremy McGrath would have to settle for 5th place in LOORRS round 15 because of limited power.
