TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH – The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series returns to Miller Motorsports Park this weekend, June 25-26, and will have a brand-new, permanent track on which to compete.
Following last year’s very popular debut at Miller Motorsports Park, track officials decided to build a permanent, high-speed off-road facility to host the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and other off-road activities.
“We have developed a great relationship with Lucas Oil,” said John Larson, General Manager of Miller Motorsports Park, “and their race last year was so well received and generated such positive feedback that we decided to make the commitment to build them a permanent home at Miller Motorsports Park that can also be used for our other off-road events and activities.”
The track was designed and built in conjunction with the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, and promises to provide fans with even more excitement and spectacular racing.
“Miller Motorsports Park is a first-class facility in every respect,” said Bob Patison, Executive Vice President of Lucas Oil Products, Inc. “It is racer- and fan-friendly, with amenities typically not found at most race venues. The Miller group has made a commitment to the sport of Short Course Off Road Racing, as evidenced by the new purpose-built track. Our Series Director, Tony Vanillo, designed the track to challenge the racers and provide the fans with an up-close experience that will not soon be forgotten.”
“We can’t wait to see the Lucas Oil trucks and buggies on the track,” said Larson. “We think the fans in Utah are going to love this facility, and that the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series could well be the fastest-growing event that we offer.
The track is just under a mile long, with large banked turns and the fastest straightaways of all the Lucas Oil Off Road tracks, plus a Mammoth Table Top and a six-pack rhythm section. Covered grandstands will provide guests with shade and a view of the entire course. VIP packages are also available.
As was the case last year, the action will be fast and furious, with high-flying vehicles going wheel to wheel and door to door, fighting for every inch of track space. The paddock will be open to spectators at no charge, and fans can chat with the teams and drivers while they prepare their vehicles. The series promotes a family-friendly atmosphere, and last year a number of lucky fans got to take home discarded pieces of bodywork autographed by the various drivers.
The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series event gets underway on Saturday, with a full schedule of practice, qualifying and main-event races for all 11 classes on each day. The gates will open at 10 a.m. on both days, with main-event races starting at 12:30 p.m. and on-track action ending by 6 p.m.
Adult tickets for this event are priced at $30 per day or $50 for a two-day pass. Tickets for kids aged 12 and under are priced at $10 per day or $15 for a two-day pass. Kids aged three and under will be admitted free of charge.
