Ol’ Two Time does it again

Local racer Lawrence O’Connor takes the IMCA Modified Legends Race for the second consecutive year.

Local racer Lawrence O’Connor may not have won the top purse at Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Duel in the Desert recently but he did earn a new nickname: Ol’ Two Time.

O’Connor took his new modified racer to the annual event to race against the record 330 drivers who signed up for the three-day racing spectacular.

But a flat tire while leading the B main and a broken steering component while running third in another qualifier cost the Port Hardy veteran a spot in Saturday’s main event.

Undeterred, O’Connor worked out the kinks in time to win the IMCA Modified Legends Race for the second consecutive year — and earn a new nickname from his fellow drivers to go along with the trophy.
