Legendary Glen Helen Raceway Set to Host Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series

Aug. 03, 2010 By Press Release

Corona, California - Legendary Glen Helen Raceway, globally recognized as the hub of West Coast motocross racing culture, will host its first Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series event, August 7th and 8th.  Nestled at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains in Northern San Bernardino, the 256-acre facility has been the scene of numerous national and international motocross and off road racing events over its 25 year history.

In contrast to the scenic hill side setting Glen Helen provides, the unique, purpose built eight-tenths mile short course off road battlefield features a triple table top section, high banked turns and aggressive rhythm sections. While the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series makes it's debut at the Glen Helen facility, the event marks the return to the venue for a pair of legendary motocross champions.

Ricky Johnson and Jeff Ward, now competing against each other in the Pro 2 Unlimited Truck class, have faced the challenges of Glen Helen Raceway on two wheels during their impressive motocross careers.

Ward, a resident of Orange County, California, spoke on the Series' return to Southern California and the Glen Helen raceway. "I spent countless hours practicing and knocking out moto after moto out at Glen Helen. I also had a chance to race a USGP there during my career and took a second. The facility has a great history. It's nice to have the opportunity to be racing at home again in front of my family and friends."

Johnson, also a Southern California native and Orange County resident, took a second place podium finish in USGP motocross competition as well. "Glen Helen has been the host of some of the greatest California Motocross events ever," he said. "I'm excited that short course off road racing is back in the region. It's a great thing for the sport."
