The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series has relocated the first event of its 2010 season, on March 6-7, to Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
"Due to recent unrealistic demands made by the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park management, the environment of the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park no longer remains conducive to providing the atmosphere for a first-class event," said Lucas Oil Executive Vice President Bob Patison. "We have taken great pride in developing spectacular venues for our fans and racers alike to showcase the excitement of our short course, off-road racing series. While failing to meet their commitments, the management of the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park has complicated our relationship to the point that we now feel the best course of action is to transition away from this venue as we pursue an alternative site in the Southern California region. We are grateful to the staff of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for assisting us in making this as smooth a transition as possible while we look forward to our first event at this fantastic new location."
Kicking off the 2010 season, Rounds 1 and 2 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series will be held on a brand-new, mile-long, purpose-built track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway featuring the highest banked turn on the Lucas Oil Off Road circuit. Featuring 10 turns and a giant "table top," this technical track is the first Las Vegas venue for the series.
