Chandler, Arizona (October 22, 2016) - After 14 rounds of excitement, drama, heartache, and triumph, it’s all comes down to this: the 15th and final round of the 2016 championship in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO. Today, four of our series’ five class championships would be decided (Rob MacCachren has already wrapped up the Pro 2 Unlimited championship) here at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ, and perhaps to throw in an extra twist, the track here saw a dramatic layout change. Where there was formerly an uphill straight between turns three and four, followed by a sharp turn into the two-line section between turns four and five, and then the final, square turn five, there is now a fast sweep left out of the turn three exit and into a long, steeply-banked turn four. The hope is that drivers will use both high and low lines in the corner, and the change has cut the total lap time by nearly 10 full seconds, with the top Pro 4 Unlimited drivers now covering a lap in the 35 second range, making this the shortest track on our calendar. Two of our class championships were extremely close coming into this final round, making things well worth it for the fans who braved temperatures in the high 90s here in the Arizona desert this afternoon, and the fans certainly got what they came for, as things absolutely went right down to the wire more than once here today.
