Pistol Pete's Personal Pot Stirrer
Stirring the pot and getting the discussion going! Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series has made the official decision to move the Jr1 and Jr2 Karts to the Regional Series. Good? Bad? Comments?
Thanks Dirty, and trust me we luv the regionals, the reality is there is way more competition, but the problem is some of our sponsors only want to give $ for the big races, and we get it. Also, Luke sure likes bringing home some $ after a National win, where there is no pay back in the regionals. We all knew it was a matter of time, would just be nice if somebody would spend a little more on promoting some of these kids, it didn't seem to be an issue when Sheldon, RJ and all the other kids were racing not to long ago, now there is a kid that has 32 podiums in a row and there really isn't nothing, and for our program we need as much luv as possible or we may have to stop.Everyone enjoyed the J1/J2 program at the big show but most everyone knew it was coming. The regional program is on fire and will be a more affordable program for the Junior Karts. Here are some amazing facts
The Lucas Oil Regional So Cal Series had
35 Junior 1 Registered Racers
29 Junior 1 Registered Racers
- Volkspower Jeff- I enjoyed watching Luke race and im sure he is going to make it big!
I see major talent in that kid! Cheers Kj
Entry fees are the same in pro series as Nationals, Major difference is there was payback at Nationals and only end of the year $ for regionals. Not to mention a bit more exposure at Nationals from companies that don't go to regionals.I agree with the growing ranks in the Regional Series. It seems like this year especially. I'm still relatively new as 2016 will be my 5th season, but I see a steady growth compared to when I first started shooting. It's really cool to see the kids evolve and progress. A question from "an outsider" though, isn't it more expensive to run the Pro Series events? Especially if you run CA and AZ and both Regionals and the Pro Series?
