Coming just days after releasing its 2013 event schedule, the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Racing Series today announced new corporate partnerships with Polaris and Walker Evans Racing designed to launch a production- based UTV class for the growing, grassroots-based form of motorsports.

The newly created Stock RZR XP class will focus on budget-minded racers being able to compete in off-road short course racing using the high-performance, two-seat Polaris RZR XP 900 sport UTVs directly from the showroom floor. In order to enhance competition and keep costs down, the only modifications allowed will be mandatory safety cages and optional bolt-on performance items.

For 2013 Lucas Oil welcomes both Polaris and Walker Evans Racing as sponsors of the Stock RZR XP class for the Southern California series. The new racing category, however, will be incorporated into all three of the Lucas Oil regional off-road series, including Arizona and Utah.
