Brandon Arthur leads in off-road racing points
Ramona’s Brandon Arthur and his off-road racing crew are leading in points in their truck class for the High Desert Racing Association’s (HDRA) 2012 season and if they place in the top five at this month’s race, they will win the championship, said Todd Arthur, Brandon’s father.
A junior at Ramona High School, Brandon Arthur races his bright yellow HRT Motorsports, Competitive Metals, Ford F-100.
At the two-day short-course style Rockin’ on the River race, Nov. 9-12, in Laughlin, Nev., Arthur will not only be racing his F-100, but will also move up a class to race a trophy truck, said his dad.
In August, Arthur and his team, which includes co-driver Donny Kerr, competed in HRDA’s Dusk-til-Dawn 250 in Primm, Nev. Each lap of the Dusk-til-Dawn 250 was more than 50 miles long.
Arthur won the 1400 class race, beating the second place finisher by 36 minutes, said Todd Arthur.
The team also won the Monster Energy pit crew challenge in its class, earning $500 and a trophy.
Arthur and his team came in second in the HRDA Eldorado Fireworks 500, held in Reno, Nev. in July. His newest sponsor is Pro Traffic Services of San Marcos.
