After just a three-week hiatus, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, is back in action, and this time, we’re at an all-new venue. The Wild West Motorsports Park, just minutes outside the Reno suburb of Sparks, NV, has come to life thanks in no small part to the extreme hard work and dedication of series head Tony Vanillo, and it only takes one quick visual survey of the grounds to see what a monumental task it was to make this dream into a reality. Cut into a rough, rocky, mountainous bowl, this track and its adjoining pit area is truly set amidst the surrounding terrain, and the desolate landscape provides a stark yet fitting background to this wholly-different new track. Furthering the overall experience is the track itself. At 1.2 miles, the track is now the longest in the series, and the fantastic dirt which has been brought in to make the track has elevated the standard of track surfaces to a whole new level. The track is superbly smooth, and shows very little sign of wear after even the most frantic Pro 4 Unlimited track sessions. Add to that the extremely long straights, the very fast corners, and the unparalleled elevation change, and this track is something different altogether, a place that must be seen to be believed. While there is still much work to be done in the future, this weekend we are here to race, as this new venue hosts Rounds 11 and 12 of the 2012 championship, and this afternoon, the important stuff got kicked off with qualifying for Round 11.
