Tickets On Sale Now for Reno and All 10 Rounds of Rescheduled Championship
CORONA, Calif. (June 12, 2020) – With an action-packed 10 round schedule and a field of competitors eager to make their return to the track, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Presented by GEICO is set for an exciting return of the world’s premier short course off road championship. Racing for the rescheduled 2020 season will kick off on July 24 & 25 with the OPTIMA Batteries Silver State Showdown Presented by K&N Filters, featuring a doubleheader from Reno-Sparks, Nevada’s high speed Wild West Motorsports Park. Eight classes of the most talented off road drivers in the country will duke it out for victory under the lights over the course of back-to-back nights in “The Biggest Little City in the World,” setting the tone for what is destined to be one of the most competitive seasons of racing in series history.
“Given the extended layoff from the coronavirus pandemic, every single driver in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is chomping at the bit, waiting for their chance to once again zip up a fire suit, pull on a helmet, and buckle up behind the wheel. The amount of anticipation surrounding the start of the 2020 season is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before,” said Ritchie Lewis, Director of Race Operations. “That kind of excitement from our competitors means we are in store for a truly memorable season. Everyone is going to come into Wild West Motorsports Park knowing that they have an opportunity to win. It’s as clean a slate as we’ve ever seen since virtually everyone has been forced to sit idle for the past few months. While it has certainly been challenging for all of us to be away from the track, it’s going to ultimately work towards the benefit of the competition this season, as everyone is just grateful that racing is back.”
