BILSTEIN and Ryan Beat Show Strength in Season Opener
Poway, California, April 20, 2018 – Ryan Beat wins round one of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ. Showing the results of all the hard work he and BILSTEIN have been doing off the track in preparation for the 2018 season, his BILSTEIN Pro Lite truck was in the top 3 every time he hit the track. BILSTEIN’s proven damping technology and precise adjustability allowed Ryan to adapt to changing conditions on the track.
“We made some minor adjustments after practice and qualifying to make us faster every time,” said Beat, “We made major changes to our Pro Lite truck in the off season and BILSTEIN worked with us the entire way to get our program dialed in. We had a game plan, and it worked perfectly. We switched back to General Tire this season and went with the fuel injected engine package. The new motor required changes to our torque converter and gear ratios.”
“Our BILSTEIN shocks completed the package and they helped us to get the power to the ground. It was really cool to be able to work with them to get the most out of our Pro Lite truck; it feels really good to win. It is a huge victory for us, and BILSTEIN, and we are looking forward to the rest of the season. BILSTEIN has given us everything we need to win.”
BILSTEIN’s 50 years of shock development in racing has helped Ryan Beat to come out on top in round one as it has for Darren Hardesty, and Jerett Brooks, who have both won back to back championships in the Lucas Oil series. Recognized for his hard work and determination, Ryan Beat will also be racing under the BILSTEIN banner in 2018.
