FULLERTON, April 26, 2012: Yokohama Tire Corporation-sponsored Cameron Steele won his first Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series event of the year, taking first in the Pro Buggy class at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, California, April 21-22. Steele claimed victory riding on off-the-shelf Geolandar A/T-S+ tires.

“It was a tough race,” said Steele, the 2010 Pro Buggy champ, “but the Yokohama Geolandars did their job and helped secure the win for the Stronghold Motorsports Monster Energy/Yokohama Pro Buggy. They really handled the course well. Thanks to the team and Yokohama tires for all the help.”

“Great to see Cameron get his first win of the season,” said Duane Sampson, Yokohama’s motorsports manager. “He’s a seasoned veteran, ran a smart race and our Geolandar A/T-S tires never let him down.”

The next Lucas Oil race in the eight-event series, which combines the Midwest tradition of short course off-road racing with a West Coast influence, is May 19-20 at Speedworld Off-Road Park in Surprise, Arizona.
