Lucas Oil Desert Racing Series

Jeff 'Ox' Kargola
Annihilates the Competition,
Taking First at Round 2 of the
Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series
And Placing Second Overall

Ox Celebrates His
First-Ever Victory in Superlite

Chandler, Arizona. - (March 23, 2011) - Team General Tire's Jeff 'Ox' Kargola tore up the course Sunday, taking home his first-ever victory in Superlite and earning second position overall in the class.

As the sun beamed over the legendary Firebird Raceway in Chandler, Arizona, the crowd at Round 2 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series anxiously awaited the sure-to-be action-packed Superlite race. Ox, a freestyle MX rider and Baja MX racer and a relatively new driver to the off-road scene, was ready to take on the rigorous course.

Though the cards were stacked against him, racing alongside several Superlite veterans, Ox and his new Superlite truck fitted with General Tire Grabber street tires fought hard for the lead, muscling his way to the front and leaving the competition in the dust.

"This win is a huge career victory for me," said Ox after taking the podium in Chandler. "I've fought hard for a win since I started racing in Superlite, and to place so early in the series is exactly what I was fighting for. I'm pumped for what's to come next with Team GT and I couldn't have asked for a better start to the season."

Ox started his off-road career racing in the SCORE series in Class 22 and has since been making big waves in the off-road racing scene. He announced his move to Superlite at the end of the 2010 season. Fresh off his 2011 SCORE San Felipe 250 win in Class 22, he was fired up for this race. In 2010, Ox placed first at the San Felipe 250 in Class 22 and stole third in Superlite at the LOORRS Glen Helen Race. Earlier in his career, Ox earned a silver medal at the Winter X Games for "Best Trick," was a WFA Big Air Points Champ and was the first person to complete a "Superman Seat-Grab Back Flip." And that's just recently - Ox has been chalking up wins and titles since 2001.
