Leland Thyes Finishes Top 10 With The Best UTV Drivers In The Country!

Friday: practice was good, had a great shake down!

Qualifying: didn’t have the right tires on and the sway bar was too soft. Leland qualified 18th out of 25 utvs. He got the sxs all cleaned up and headed down to Thunder On Main and got to meet some young fans and give away some handouts.

Saturday race day: the launch control kept going off around every turn, killing his momentum, and having no drive out of the corner ended up going from 18th to 15th though!

Sunday race day: figured out the launch control problem and got it turned off. He qualify during the race and they take your fastest lap time from Saturday, and that is how you start Sunday, so Leland finished 15th, but unfortunately, he ran 18th fastest lap time. So started out 18th, there was a lot of water on the track at the beginning of the race- so it was hard to do any passing, but then the track started turning into what he was set up for, and started the passing game. On the last lap coming to the checkers, the left rear brake line blew off but still ended up with my best finish in championship off road series so far. Going from 18th to 9th place! Leland got inside the top 10 with the best Utv drivers in the country!

Leland is looking forward to Bark River Off-Road and hoping to keep the positive momentum going after a very rough start to the year!
