Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series - ASCC
With less than two weeks before the opening rounds of 2011, Lucas Oil and ASCC are hard at work prepping for an amazing short course season and things are looking better than ever!
The Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series - ASCC will visit 3 different venues throughout the 2011 season. New to the Arizona regional drivers will be the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series track at Firebird International Raceway as well as an all new purpose built facility in Kingman, AZ. The series will also be returning to the always popular Speedworld Off Road Park to hit its challenging mogul section for five out of the eight rounds.
The Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series in both Arizona and Southern California will be utilizing a common rule book that clearly defines class specifications, safety requirements and prepares the racers for the big leagues. The all new Mini Stock Division in both venues and the addition of the Full Stock Class in Southern California have already garnered a lot of attention. As of late, the forums are busy with talks, plans, and posts of new purpose built vehicles dedicated to those classes.
Dan Pentico, the Business Development Director for the Arizona Short Course Regional Series stated "The Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series-ASCC is receiving more pre-registrations than ever before and we are welcoming racers that are regular participants from the bigger Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Many of our drivers have recognized that running the regional program in addition to the larger series is a great way to grab some more seat time while engaging in some great competitive racing. The true racers know there is always room for improvement and these regional series provide an affordable reason to get out and race."
Pentico was also excited to elaborate on the ASCC's plans for increased media coverage for 2011. "We are thrilled to note that Deviate Films will feature a recap video at selected rounds of our series. Even bigger news is the possible allotment of 2011 TV coverage. Produced by MDR Entertainment LLC., Lucas Oil has approved a total of 8 hours of coverage for the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series - ASCC to be aired on the MAV TV Network. The shows will feature a look behind the scenes, featuring the racing action as well as the racers, teams, and families that are involved at the regional level."
