April 21-22, 2012 will mark the return of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series action to the all-new Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, CA. Construction is being completed on the challenging .9-mile long dirt short course. All-new track amenities will include a purpose-built grandstand complete with luxury sky boxes, race control tower, eagle’s nest spotter tower, VIP track-side RV parking and a front stretch hot pit so the fans can see all the action.

Lake Elsinore enjoys a long heritage of off-road racing tradition dating back to the 1960s when competitors raced through the city streets and surrounding area in the legendary Lake Elsinore Grand Prix, made famous by the late actor Steve McQueen, in the 1971 cult documentary movie, “On any Sunday.” The new Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park will also host the season finale of the 2012 Lucas Oil AMA Outdoor National Championship.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli Sports announce that the brand new Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park will become the new home of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, in Southern California. On the heels of announcing the 2012 series schedule and advance ticket sales for next summer, both parties are pleased to welcome the completely renovated Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park as the host site of the season finale, set to take place on Saturday, September 8, 2012.

Located in the hotbed of the motocross industry, and about an hour outside of the major metropolitan areas of Los Angeles and San Diego, Lake Elsinore serves as an ideal location for fans of the sport across the entire southern portion of the state. It’s also well-known to students of the sport’s history as the site of the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix, which was featured prominently in the epic motorcycle racing documentary film On Any Sunday back in 1971 – one year before the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship was born.

“A successful search has landed the Pro Motocross finale at what we feel is the ideal location for a national event in Southern California,” said MX Sports President Davey Coombs. “This is a brand new facility that was built from the ground up to host such an event, and offers riders one of the best layouts of any track in the country. We like to close out the summer where the sport of motocross thrives, and we believe we’ve found the perfect place in Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park.”
