Corona, California (August 25, 2016) - There's always at least one person who never gets a memo. Isn't that true, Rob MacCachren?

Just a couple of weeks ago Ritchie Lewis and Greg Foutz and the other Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series officials were making plans for the final events of the season and talking about how, with just a little luck, it could be the final points races of the year that decided all four pro class championships.

When the two days of racing in the Toyota Silver State Showdown in Sparks, Nevada, August 13-14, were complete the possibility of the final rounds of racing deciding everything still existed – except for MacCachren and his rivals in Pro 2.

MacCachren either didn't get the memo from that conversation or he got it and ignored it. That's the most likely scenario considering he's been racing long enough to know too well that putting off until later what can be done now isn't the recommended strategy.

The 51-year-old from Las Vegas prefers opening the door when opportunity knocks and that's what he did at Wild West Motorsports Park. MacCachren went into rounds 11 and 12 of the 15-round series with a commanding 64-point lead, won both main events and earned the maximum 104 points available during the weekend and made the final three rounds irrelevant to the championship.

MacCachren has four wins in a row and six overall. He leads closest pursuers RJ Anderson and Jeremy McGrath by 77 and 78 points, respectively, and doesn't have to do anything more than take the green flag three times to claim the title.

The MacCachren Coronation Tour will begin at the Lucas Oil Fight Under the Lights presented by Optima Batteries September 23-24 at Lake Elsinore (California) Motorsports Park and conclude October 22 at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona, as a prelude to the season-ending Challenge Cup races at the same site on October 23.

The drivers contending for championships in the other divisions naturally are jealous of MacCachren's reduced stress level because they all still have a good deal of work to do. That's particularly true in Pro 4, where 35 points separate the top four, and Pro Buggy, where there are 53 points separating the top six.

Pro 4 class leader Carl Renezeder had a forgettable weekend in Nevada, with finishes of 8th and 9th in the Pro 4 main events, and lost 27 points to two-time reigning champion Kyle LeDuc, who had a 1st and a 3rd and now trails by just 6 points.

LeDuc has moved up five spots in six rounds and it seems likely that he or Renezeder will be the champion, but MacCachren and Doug Fortin have longshot chances. MacCachren, in third, trails Renezeder by 25 points and Fortin, in fourth, is 35 back.

The top six in the Pro Buggy standings came home from Nevada in the same order they had arrived in, but several of them whittled away at Garrett George's lead. Mike Valentine picked up four points thanks to a pair of 3rd-place finishes, Darren Hardesty Jr. gained three with a win and a 6th and Kevin McCullough improved by 12 with a win and a runner-up finish.

Reigning champion George had a 6th and a 2nd and will go into the Lake Elsinore weekend leading Valentine by 9, Hardesty by 12 and McCullough by 19. Bud Ward and Eliott Watson, 43 and 53 behind, still have faint hopes, but both lost ground in Nevada.

Then there's Pro Lite. Mathematically that's a four-man battle royal between leader Jerett Brooks, Brandon Arthur, Ryan Beat and Brock Heger. But if the MAVTV crew is looking for music to use to introduce Arthur, Beat and Heger an apropos choice would be that line about having “a long way to go and a short time to get there” from Jerry Reed's “East Bound and Down” theme song for Smokey and The Bandit.

Brooks had a win and a 4th in Nevada and extended his lead to 27 points over Arthur, who was 10th and 6th. Beat and Heger trail by 47 and 49 points, respectively. That means a trio of fourth place finishes will give Brooks the crown no matter what Arthur and the others do in the closing weeks.

Finally, not to be outdone, the Modified Karts have a down-to-the-wire title race of their own, with the winner perhaps becoming the first female champion in the class history.

Hailie Deegan, the daughter of six-time champion Brian Deegan, had a second and a win in Nevada and has a 12-point lead over Trey Gibbs, who had a win and a second. Christopher Polvoorde is 23 points behind in third. And for the benefit of those thinking about possibly needing a tiebreaker to decide things, Deegan and Gibbs both have three wins, three seconds and a third while Polvoorde has two wins and two seconds. The decider at the moment would be Deegan's fourth-place finish at Glen Helen Raceway on July 24.

The countdown has begun.​

Was really hoping LOORRS would have the Wheatland, MO race around spring or fall Crandon so the teams could make both the TORC race and the LOORS race. Guess not.

The speedway out there has events running almost every weekend during the summer so there probably wasn't very many options to chose from. If TORC's schedule is close to what it was this year it would put Wheatland right in the middle of bark river and Minneapolis which wouldn't give teams time to prep in between.

Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series makes fuel injection an option for Pro 2 and Pro 4 in 2017

CORONA, California (September 30, 2016) – Ritchie Lewis, the director of The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO, announced today that fuel injection will be an option for teams in the Pro 2 and Pro 4 classes in 2017.

“Officials and teams in all racing disciplines are looking into fuel injection for the future and we want to give our teams an opportunity to test it extensively under race conditions and give us their feedback,” Lewis said.

Lewis emphasized that all the teams in Pro 2 and Pro 2 have the option of using either fuel injection or carburetors in 2017 and the series at this point has no plans to phase out carburetors.

LOORRS rule book Section PTR-25 Fuel Injection within the Pro 2 and Pro 4 Classes has been amended with the regulations for the 2017 season.

Good morning,

As most of you know, the forecast isn't looking promising for this weekend for the Southern CA area. While we would love to power through it and hope for the best, we would hate to have teams spend time and money to get to the track and then have to send everyone home with a muddy mess and no good race stories to tell if the rain falls as heavy as is being predicted.

With that in mind, Round 1 at Glen Helen will be cancelled and made up at a later date (more than likely in conjunction with one of the already scheduled single day events). The series will kick off at our previously scheduled Rounds 2/3 at Lake Elsinore on March 11th/12th. We will hold the 2016 awards at the track on Friday March 10th. Championship checks will be mailed this week but we will still do trophies, tacos and recognition at the awards as planned.

More details to come soon on the weekend schedule for March 11/12 and a makeup date for Round 1. Thank you for your support of the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series and we look forward to finally seeing everyone at the track and ready to race in 3 weeks!
Poppy Perfect

As season nears, Lucas Oil Speedway 2017 Media Day scheduled for March 29

Wheatland, Missouri (February 23, 2017) - With a new racing season at Lucas Oil Speedway just over one month away, General Manager Dan Robinson is inviting media members to a season preview and up-close look at one of the country's premier short-track facilities.

Lucas Oil Speedway's media day luncheon is set for Wednesday, March 29. Robinson will give a brief overview and some drivers will be available for one-on-one interviews.

A highlight of the gathering will be tours of the new Off-Road track, which will play host to its first event July 21-23 and usher in a form of racing unique to this part of the country.

"This is just a way to welcome back our many media friends who already are familiar with Lucas Oil Speedway along with introducing our facility and some of its drivers to those who might be first-time visitors," Robinson said. "We'll have information to distribute about our season and be available for any questions that media members have.

"The Off-Road track is really going to be something to see. Off-Road racing is mostly associated with the West Coast so this is unlike anything in this part of the country in motorsports. We'll be able to give tours of the 6,000-foot track that day for the first time - and give media members a look at the rest of our complex that includes the 'Lake Lucas' drag boat track and, of course, our dirt track where the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series events are held."

Here's a look at the schedule for media day on Wednesday, March 29:

11:30 a.m. - Check-in at the Lucas Oil Speedway office building, adjacent to the pit entrance. Media members will be directed to the Tech Building where the program will be conducted and press releases distributed.

11:45 - Lunch in the Tech Building.

Noon - A brief program (a multi-plexer will be provided to record comments). General Manager Dan Robinson will give a brief overview of the season, which marks the 11-year anniversary of the grand opening of Lucas Oil Speedway under the ownership of Forrest Lucas. Robinson will answer questions, then be available for one-on-one interviews afterward.

12:15 - One-on-one interviews with Robinson and drivers in attendance.

12:30 - Tours of the facility, which includes the new off-road track, dirt track, pits, press box/suites and "Lake Lucas" drag-boat track.

Media members who plan to attend are asked to RSVP to Lucas Oil Speedway PR Director Lyndal Scranton at [email protected] by Wednesday, March 22.

Thanks to all media members. We look forward to seeing you on March 29.
