JUNE 22, 2011 In a collaborative effort with Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series expands itʼs commitment to grass roots racing to the Utah region.

While theLucas Oil Off Road Racing Series rulebook will be utilized for existing short course off road racing classes, these newclasses will create opportunities for off road racers at all levels to compete safely in short course off road racing.

It's great to see all these regional series opening up. I have raced the last 2 events with ASCC here in AZ. It is a blast. Can't wait for the next one.

I hear they had a packed crowd this weekend at Miller Motorsports park. Kinda cool to see Lucas stepping up to help form these venues and then let the regional series use the sites as well.
I hope it continues to grow.
