Video: A Day In The Life Of LOORRS Star Robby Woods

Wouldn’t we all like to be off-road racers? Sponsorships, fast trucks, podium finishes, and pure adrenaline backed up by 800 hp–sounds like the dream life, doesn’t it? Today’s find is a video that demystifies what we all thought happened behind the scenes in a racer’s life, and it features rising star Robby Woods as its subject.

Woods is a Nevada residenRobbyWoods_2t, and is most often seen in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series driving his #99 blue-and-white Pro 2. A dedicated off-road enthusiast and lover of motorsports, the man made his start in motocross before making the jump to four-wheeled fury in the Pro 2 class.

With several years of experience under his belt making and fabricating prerunners and racecars, Woods felt comfortable about the transition at first, but nevertheless sought the advice of more battle-hardened veterans for advice and suggestions. Then he set about making his very own Pro 2 truck.

Starting from scratch and working on a threadbare budget, Woods never lost sight of his goals despite the blood, sweat, and tears involved in the build process. His sprawling estate doubled as home and test track, which we get a taste of in the above video. We also get to see a couple of heavily-modified Chevy prerunners, looking fast and mean as Woods jumps, bumps, banks, and bombs his way around the Mojave.

The flipside to all that off-road fun is the tinkering and maintenance that Woods also partakes in, using CAD programs and welding to fine-tune his vehicles before every event. We see a glimpse of this too at the 1:45 mark, as Woods pulls into his Rogue Racing shop to monitor and manage the progress of his race truck.

And so it goes–a little work, a little play, and a lot of motivation are what keeps Woods at the top of his game, each and every day. Follow up on his goings-on by checking out his website and Facebook page.
