Rialto, California – The dawn of the 2011 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series rises on the Phoenix, Arizona desert this weekend as Chad George spearheads his FUNCO Team into the season opener at Firebird Raceway.

Chad will seek the SuperLite championship in his new #42 Kawasaki Motor Corp. race truck and he will defend his UTV Modified title in his Monster Energy Kawasaki Teryx.  2010 was a strong SuperLite season with a solid second place finish, but Chad stands to top the podium for 2011.
