CORONA, California (August 12, 2014) – One of the most popular shows in northern Nevada history returns for a limited engagement next weekend and it’s guaranteed to be louder and more colorful and dramatic than the original version.
After a sweltering day gave way to a classic balmy summer night here at Glen Helen last night, it was a much nicer, overcast day that gave way to a rainy evening here this evening. For the first time in quite some time, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, had a rain-slickened track waiting for its drivers, and fortunately, the tricky conditions didn't stop the races from going off fantastically. Some veterans came away victorious, but we also saw a pair of young, first time winners tonight, perhaps inspired to greatness by the thrill of driving in the wet. A fantastic crowd endured the rain, which relented nicely at times, and enjoyed a great night of racing under the lights.
After a lengthy six-week break following Rounds 7 and 8 in Utah, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, is back at it once again. In what is arguably the home of short course off road in southern California, Glen Helen Raceway is host once again to Rounds 9 and 10 of the championship, and once again, the action here will be under the lights. This is traditionally one of the best-attended weekends of the year, and tonight did not disappoint, as fans flocked to the stands in droves to see their favorite drivers battle some very competitive fields. A very hot afternoon gave way to very enjoyable conditions this evening, and tonight saw a host of exciting races, including some very memorable performances from several different drivers. Read on to find out how the stars of short course faired tonight.
