Weller Wraps Up SoCal Series

October 19, 2016 | WRITTEN BY: TEAM DRAGONFIRE  [0 Comments]

Adds Another SR1 Title & Second In Hotly Contested Production 1000 Class

It's a wrap! Weller wins again as the final round of the Lucas Oil Regional SoCal Series is in the books as Corry battled all series long with Yamaha teammate Dustin Nelson in both the Production 1000 Class and the SR1 championship. The two were clearly the class of the field as Nelson won the Production 1000 title with seven first place finishes (he never finished lower than second all season). Corry had six podium finishes and between the two racers, Yamaha’s YXZ1000R won every race in the series.

Corry finished the SoCal regionals an impressive 47 points ahead of the rest of the Production 1000 class in her Weller Racing/DragonFire YXZ1000R, and is also running second in the Lucas Oil Regional Series in Arizona. For good measure she won The Off-Road Championship (TORC) series’ first ever Pro Stock UTV Championship last month, becoming the first driver to win a national championship in the YXZ1000R, and the first woman to win a TORC series of any class.


Even without traveling east to take the TORC crown, Corry had a busy couple of months! “We headed into this weekend of racing still running full steam ahead from three straight weekends of displaying our YXZs at the Sand Sports Super Show, the AZ Offroad Expo and the Lucas Oil Off Road Expo in Pomona,” she says. She did more than display in Pomona though as she took lucky winners on the rides of their lives around the MAVTV Proving Grounds all weekend long! 


“After the shows, we gave the Optima Batteries SR1 and my DragonFire Racing/Yamaha YXZ a quick race prep and headed out again to California for the final round of racing in SoCal. We arrived just in time to jump in both cars for practice. There were some track changes for this race, and we wanted to be sure we were dialed in on those changes before the racing started.”



Production 1000 qualifying was first, and Corry searched for the fastest lines on a not-so-great track.  “We turned some solid laps, and came away with a 2nd place qualifier. With a two-car inversion drawn, that would give us the pole position for the start of the race.” Then she switched to her “Honey Badger” SR1 and headed back out to the track.  


“After a less than stellar weekend at Elsinore the race prior, I wanted to put down a solid qualifier to be sure Elsinore knew she didn’t beat us! Despite a flat right rear tire, I ripped off some quick laps and grabbed the fast time. Jason pulled a 6 for the inversion which would give me a 3rd row, outside starting position for the race (yes, I made sure to thank him for that!).”



Production 1000 would be first, with Corry in 2nd place in the Championship chase just behind Yamaha teammate, Dustin Nelson. “If he finished well, he had the title locked up, and I wanted to be sure I did the same, to give Yamaha a solid 1-2 for the Championship overall. I got a good start, but the track started off pretty bad, and between the dicing for line choice and some pretty rough driving all around me, I got shuffled back a little each lap.”


Not good enough for the recently crowned TORC Champ. “I found myself in 5th place at some point, and knew that wasn’t going to cut it, so I changed up my lines, put my head down and made a drive to the front. I quickly passed everyone except for Nelson, who was running a solid race up front.” When the checked flag came out, Corry crossed behind Dustin for a 1-2 finish, and a 1-2 finish in the Championship as well. “Consistency wins championships, and we had a few issues that put us behind this season,” she says. “But we have learned from them and will come back stronger in 2017.”  


Once the podium celebration was over, Corry jumped into her SR1 and headed back to staging to hopefully wrap up another SR1 Championship! “Honey Badger was feeling great, and I just needed to finish with a 5th place or better to get the Championship,” she says. “As we rolled to the green flag I was looking forward to the battle ahead.”


Green flag! “My side got a good start and we all railed along the outside of turn one. I quickly slotted into the third position and waited for my chance to get around another DragonFire guy, Ronnie Renner.” That chance came on lap 2, as Renner lost traction out of turn one. Corry then set her sights on 1st place, Curtis Frost. “He had built up a nice lead, but I had a lot of time to reel him in, so I just worked on my lines and focused on not making any mistakes. I got my chance to pass as he lost a left front tire going into turn 1, and then I had clean air and a wide open track.”


“I was leading at the mandatory caution, but knew Nelson was right behind me. On the restart, Dustin dove down low and managed to get ahead of me, but I got a good drive out and it was an all-out drag race to turn 2.  From then on, we had a really close battle, swapping the lead a few times and racing hard until he bobbled in turn 2. Then I was able to extend my lead and get a little breathing room.”


On the final lap, I just stayed out of trouble and crossed the checkers as the winner of the race as well as the Championship. It was a great race, and I got a lot of comments from the fans that they thought it was the best race of the year!”


Next up, Corry still has to battle Dustin at the Lucas Oil Regional Arizona wrap up in November, where she will be racing for three more Championships that weekend. “Then it is on to the Best In The Desert Pahrump 250 in December, so our season isn’t over just yet!”

Vote For DragonFire SS & Defender SS Mirrors!


Don't get caught up in the political rhetoric, vote for a winner in 2016! DragonFire elevated our popular SuperSport SS Side Mirror platform to new heights with the introduction of the articulating Defender SS Mirror last year. There is no smoke with these mirrors… what you see is what you get! 

Partisans will be proud of the fact that our SS and Defender SS Mirrors are 100% made in America. Our features and benefits are more than idle campaign promises, they are facts. The clever indexed pivot mechanism allows mirrors to move out of the way of trail side or trailer hazards. Once the situation has been cleared, the Defender can quickly be returned to its original position.


A full 4-inch convex mirror ensures a full field of vision for both the SS and Defender SS versions. They are also push-adjust so that you can change your viewing angle without the need for any tools… or even getting out of the car. These mirrors attach to the cage using a billet clamp with a two-bolt mounting system to make sure the mirrors stay put! 

Talk about bipartisan, mounting clamps are available in 1 3/4" for virtually all Polaris RZR applications and 1 7/8" common to most Kawasaki UTVs. There are even 2" clamps for the Can-Am contingent. For more details, see our campaign platform at:

UTVs Steal The Show From Monster Trucks & Rock Crawlers

Spread over 10 acres and featuring more than 325 exhibitors, the 2016 Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo Powered by General Tire really is where the Off-Road Nation Comes Together. It is the greatest collection of off-road companies, parts, equipment, gear, action and experts ever assembled in America. From off-road racing to rock crawling, trail riding to sand sports, motorcycles, ATVs, to camping and adventure travel, fans have flocked to Southern California for this annual event.
In addition to providing a unique opportunity to meet and talk with the most knowledgeable people in the off-road industry, fans can experience the dynamic world of off-road through ride-alongs, racing demos, celebrity appearances, live music, industry media events and product giveaways all weekend. Nearly 70,000 enthusiasts show up for the show… which makes it the perfect place to show the other segments of the off-road world how the UTV industry rolls.


In the past, UTVs were definitely under-represented, but DragonFire has helped change that. Starting three years ago we initiated the ride-alongs on the MAVTV Proving Grounds, winning hearts and minds along the way. However this year, DragonFire decided to accelerate to RacePace by bringing out newly crowned TORC champ Corry Weller to join 3X Mint 400 winner Lacrecia Beurrier to meet and greet the fans.



The unfortunate recall of Polaris products meant we couldn't conduct match races between Corry and Lacrecia (and with Best In The Desert BlueWater Challenge the following weekend, we didn't want to beat up the race cars). However Corry was a good sport about it and took lucky winners for joy rides in the DragonFire Yamaha YXZ 1000. 




Although there were no races, Team DragonFire still came away with a podium position as Emily, aka #MissDragonFire collected a trophy in the Miss Off-Road Expo contest. Even more important than adding another trophy to the case was making friends for the UTV lifestyle and making memories for thousands of people at the show.
