Corona, California (April 29, 2015) - Funrise Toys®, manufacturer of TONKA branded products under license from Hasbro® has returned as a sponsorship partner with Team Lucas for this year's Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series with increased on-site event participation, as well as significant exposure on CBS, CBS Sports Network and MAVTV.
After a terrific first run under the lights here at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park last night, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, came back to put on an even better show for the local Phoenix-area fans here tonight. Round 4 saw the sky darken, as water-laden clouds moved in and provided a serious threat of rain for the evening. However, the local fans were in no way deterred, and they packed the stands closer than ever to enjoy a great night of racing. These fans were rewarded, as not only did the rain stay away (save for a brief, momentary sprinkle at one point), but the drivers also put on some spectacular racing, giving the fans every penny of their money’s worth- and then some!
After an exciting opening weekend to the 2015 season, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, returns to the Valley of the Sun, as Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ hosts Rounds 3 and 4 of the championship. For the first time at this venue, the races are being held at night, and as they always do, the terrific Arizona fans packed the grandstands to see their favorite short course off-road drivers battle it out. Today’s practice and qualifying sessions were rained out, so starting order for the races was determined by the championship standings. Fortunately, the rain cleared off and left a track that was in great condition, perhaps the best it’s ever been in, and the racing tonight was fast and frantic in every class.
Most racing series use a yellow stripe or something similar on the vehicle’s rear bumper to designate a rookie driver. When Brad DeBerti lined up for his first race in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO March 20 at Lake Elsinore, California, his Pro Lite truck should have had both a yellow bumper and a sign saying “caution: student driver.”Read more...
