The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, with the support of Lucas Oil Products, has introduced a new regional series. The Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Racing Series will unite burgeoning short course off-road racing series throughout the country under one umbrella, under the guidance of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series director Tony Vanillo.
Flagship series joining the organization are the Arizona Short Course Championship based in Phoenix, the Glen Helen Short Course Off Road Racing Series, based in San Bernardino, Calif., and the traveling General Tire TROPHYLITE Series.
"As the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series continues to grow while developing long term, permanent facilities, we have become increasingly more conscious of the need to nurture the next generation of short course off-road racer," Vanillo said. "With this in mind, we instituted this program to provide us with a platform to build the sport at a grass roots level while allowing us to share our resources with these promising series as we unite them under one unified organization."
While each individual regional organization will retain a level of managerial autonomy, they will share a host of benefits including available insurance, a unified rules package, common classes, as well as technical and safety support. Additional Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series marketing and media assistance will also be made available to participating series.
