Pomona, California - The Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo Powdered By General Tire sprawled out at the Pomona Fairplex, the Off-Road Expo is the largest consumer focused off-road show in the southwest region and possibly the biggest in the Country.
Off-road companies, race teams, media and enthusiasts from all over the world descended upon the Southern California town to all take part in the massive event. There was a wide range of off-road oriented vehicles, products shows and displays, from rock crawling to trail riding, UTVs and motorcycles and sand sports to short course.
Hundreds of off-road aftermarket companies set up booths to get one on one face-time with attendees as an opportunity to discuss parts, equipment and modifications. Booths were filled with modified vehicles and products, some of which are sometimes sneak peeks at new products being released at the industry-only SEMA show in November.
