In a bad economy, who in their right mind would be building new off-road racing tracks? Lucas Oil, that's who. As if the Lake Elsinore track was not enough, Lucas Oil Off-Road has built their crowning achievement with their new track 10 minutes outside of Reno, NV at the Wild West Motorsports Park. With over 100ft of elevation, the 1.2 mile track features four turns, and five primary jumps, (two of which make the old ski-jump at Chula Vista look like a cake walk), a new style rhythm section and massive custom built stands combined to make the new track in Reno the most spectacular short course track built to date. This track was specifically designed to showcase the incredible vehicle dynamics of Pro-4, Pro-2, and Pro-Lite for a massive crowd.

Tony Vanillo and his crew have been working day and night, 7-days a week to get it done on time. They have carved out the side of a mountain, screened 60 cubic tons of dirt to remove rock, and graded out a massive pit and parking area. So come out next weekend and see short course off-road at it's best.
