Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Comes to Miller Motorsports Park

The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, with it’s high octane brand of short course off road mayhem is poised to make it’s debut at Miller Motorsports Park, in Tooele, Utah , June 26th and 27th . Nestled in the picturesque Tooele Valley just west of Salt Lake City, Miller Motorsports Park provides a unique setting for the often unpredictable, adrenaline fueled short course off road racing series. Leading the charge is multi-time off road champion, Rob MacCachren in his 900 horse powered Pro 2 Unlimited truck. MacCachren, who will be performing double duty racing the Stronghold Engineering, Pro 4 Unlimited, (4 wheel drive 900hp Full size truck) holds a slim lead over motocross legend Ricky Johnson in the Pro 2 class. Though Johnson and “Rob Mac” have diced throughout the young season for supremacy, emerging stars Bryce Menzies and Rodrigo Ampudia are making their presence felt with speed and consistency. In this 2010 season, Rick Huseman has been the class of the field in Pro 4 Unlimited. While Huseman’s multiple podiums and victories this season have given him control of the Pro 4 season’s standings, 2009 defending class champion, Carl Renezeder, currently holding on to the second spot, is coming to Utah with Adrian Cenni and the father and son tandem of Curt and Kyle LeDuc prepared to show Huseman that the Pro 4 championship is not easy to come by. Putting the disappointing loss of the 2009 ProLite (300hp Minitruck) championship behind him, Chris Brandt is on top of the class title chase while Matt Loiodice has inserted himself between Brant and defending champion Brian Deegan who sits in third. Loiodice, in this his second full year in the ProLite class, has had a strong start to the season in a class loaded with veteran talent. Each day will provide a full day of racing, featuring the above mentioned classes in addition to SuperLite Truck, Pro Buggy Unlimited, Limited Buggy, UTV and Karts. Throughout the entire event, team pit areas in the paddock can be viewed by the public for spectators to have an up close and personal look at the teams and vehicle preparation.
