In partnership with our wonderful long-time sponsor 4 Wheel Parts, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, is proud to re-introduce the Free Youth Tickets Program for the 2018 season.
As the name implies, the program awards free event tickets to local kids for each of our series events this year, with an emphasis being placed on positive efforts and good work done by these kids. "We want to give back to the communities we race in," says series Marketing Director Christin Patison, "and the youth is the future of this sport."
Drivers like RJ Anderson, Jerett Brooks, Brock Heger, Brandon Arthur, and others have all worked their way from the kart ranks to the Pro classes en route to becoming professional athletes, and showing local kids just what's possible through hard work and dedication may be the spark they need to realize their own dreams. This ticket program helps make racing more accessible for kids, as they are given to local schools, who in turn often use the tickets as rewards for kids who are part of accelerated reading programs, the honor roll, 100 percent attendance clubs, and more.
For the races at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ next weekend, the marketing team at LOORRS has distributed 100 tickets each to 100 different local schools, tickets that kids can use to get into the races free. That's an incredible total of 10,000 tickets, a total which will be matched at each race weekend this year! Free kids tickets can also be found at local participating 4 Wheel Parts locations, and from either source, the only caveat with the tickets is that they must be used with the purchase of one adult ticket, simply so that kids aren't getting dropped off at the races unsupervised.
4 Wheel Parts President and CEO Greg Adler, himself a well-known advocate for children's causes, was quick to echo the series' excitement for the re-introduction of this program.
"4 Wheel Parts has been a proud partner of Lucas Oil Products and the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series for many years now," said Adler. "We are extremely pleased to continue our partnership for 2018 and support the reintroduction of the Free Youth Ticket Program sponsored by 4 Wheel Parts. The Lucas name is synonymous with motorsports family entertainment and this provides us with an excellent opportunity to share the excitement of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing with tens of thousands of children who will now be in the grandstands courtesy of 4 Wheel Parts."
