Taylor Has Rare Tough Weekend @ Crandon

 

Belvidere, IL (September 10, 2012) - Crandon, Wisconsin is like a second home to Scott Taylor. His biggest professional victories, and there have been plenty, have come at the iconic facility. So it was natural for Taylor Racing to have big expectations when the veteran off-road racer buckled up his Mastercraft Safety harness and mashed the throttle down on his RoushYates powered PRO-2 truck. Unfortunately the racing gods were unkind to the familiar blue #8 Miller Welders / RoushYates Engines / AMSOIL / BFGoodrich Tires Ford F-150.

  

The late Friday afternoon practice session saw Taylor have a driveline failure. Without sufficient time to repair the truck, the #8 Ford didn't compete in the Round 5 make-up race. - more


Taylor Continues to Land on the Podium - Third Place in Round 10

 

Belvidere, IL (August 14, 2012) - After landing on the podium at Crandon and Chicagoland, the multi-time champion racer continued his string of podium finishes with a third place finish in Round 10 at the UP Off-Road 100 in Bark River, Michigan. The thirty-nine year short-course veteran racer continues to thrill capacity crowds week in and week out with his never say quit attitude on and off the track.

 

The 1.3 mile long all-natural terrain track is quite familiar to Scott Taylor and his #8 Miller Welders/AMSOIL/Roush Yates Engines/BFGoodrich Tires Ford F-150 and over the years it hasn't always been kind to the champion driver. Just last year, during qualifying, Taylor took a hard end over end crash that had his crew working a twelve hour shift to get the truck ready for last year's event. After witnessing Scott Taylor's racing this past weekend, last year's incident definitely didn't affect his performance. - more

 


Taylor Takes Third @ TORC Chicagoland

 

Belvidere, IL (July 23, 2012) - Scott Taylor made the quick trip down the road to Chicagoland Speedway with the #8 Miller Welders AMSOIL BFGoodrich Tires and along with the support of family and a large throng of fans, battled to another podium finish. The seven-time PRO champion continues to show the young guns of the sport how to get the job done.

 

 

 

The two night event was held in conjunction with the Nationwide/Camping World NASCAR weekend at the Chicago area facility and after two previous years of optimistic attendance, Scott Taylor and the TORC competitors competed in front of a packed house during both nights of racing.

  

The stadium style track was a totally new layout from short-course guru Jeff Nordstrom and to the delight of the drivers and fans it did not disappoint. The course consisted of a table top, rhythm section, and moguls running through the infield straightaway, as well as two sections of jumps and back to back tight corners at the entrance and exit of the infield portion of the layout. The main straightaway included two fast high flying jumps and along with the rest of the layout, kept most of the fans on their feet all night long. - more

 


Taylor Begins 2012 Season - Takes Second - PRO-2WD

Belvidere, IL (June 20, 2012) - Scott Taylor began his race season at the Super Speedway of short-course off-road racing Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. The veteran of the sport did not disappoint as a near perfect run put the man from Belvidere, Illinois on the podium at the track he considers home. The weekend wasn't just about racing for Taylor and his team; it was time of reflection, and dedication to racers that made a difference to off-road racing at Crandon.

The weekend began Thursday with the dedication of the four section 1,000 seat grandstand that was constructed facing Crandon's infamous Turn One. Each section was named after famous Crandon racers, Chad Schleuter, Farmer John Konitzer, Rick Huseman, and Jack Flannery. Scott Taylor was among the crowd that helped dedicate the structure to these great competitors.

Friday afternoon it was time to get back on the race track for the first time since last September. Taylor and the #8 Miller Welders Roush Yates Engines BFGoodrich Tires Ford F-150 qualified fifth fastest in the PRO-2WD field. Amazingly the top seven PRO-2WD competitors all qualified within one second of each other, a feat not seen before at the Big House.

 
When the PRO-2WD trucks were called to staging for Saturday's Round 5 race, heavy rain hit the Northwoods race facility. The final two races of the day, PRO-2WD and PRO-4x4, were postponed due to the weather and are rescheduled to be completed at the Labor Day weekend event.
 


The next day the weather cooperated and the large Crandon crowd saw a full day of racing. Scott Taylor and the other nine PRO-2WD trucks lined up for what turned out to be one of the longest races in history. - more
