Corona, CA – Founder of Metal Mulisha and FMX Icon Brian Deegan is making his mark in Short Course Off Road Racing. Last weekend Deegan made his way out to Speedworld Off Road Park in Surprise, AZ for Rounds 9 & 10 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Determined to win a championship, Deegan set the pace on Saturday knocking out Short Course Champion Rob Naughton and taking home the 1st place podium with his teammate and 2008 Pro-Lite Rookie of the Year Todd Cuffaro locking down a 2nd Place finish. On Sunday both Deegan and Cuffaro put on the gloves and battled their way through the pack to take home two more podium finishes for the Rockstar/Metal Mulisha/Lucas Oil race team.
This year has been an incredible year for the Rockstar/Metal Mulisha/Lucas Oil race team. For Deegan it has been an emotional year both on the course and off the course. In a recent interview by Dirt Sports Magazine Deegan compared his first win in his hometown of Lake Elsinore, Ca to that of his first win in Supercross that launched his career.
He went on to say:
“I don’t want to be one of those guys that got in this sport and didn’t perform. I’ve been a racer all my life, and I’m a racer way before I am a freestyler”
As for Deegan, he has proven himself in the world of Freestyle Motocross and has now made the transition to becoming one of the top competitors and a force to be reckoned with in Short Course Off Road Racing. Deegan’s days of FMX are far from over, he still practices everyday in his backyard and supports the progression of the sport with his involvement in the AFMXA. As the sport of Short Course Off Road Racing continues to progress and draw crowds, you can expect to see Deegan out front dominating the competition.
