Corona, CA (March 5, 2009)
Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is pleased to announce that its last Championship race of the 2009 season will be broadcast live on NBC. The show will air this November on NBC in a primetime weekend time slot. The NBC live show will be in addition to the comprehensive Series coverage on SPEED. The 2009 NBC live coverage is in large part due to the sponsorship support of the Series received from GEICO Powersports, the recently named Presenting Sponsor of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Lucas Oil and GEICO Powersports are dedicated to increasing the live coverage of the Series and are diligently working towards more live television events in 2010.
“This is an exciting time for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the Short Course Community in general. I am delighted with the NBC opportunity to showcase this wonderful sport and it is a great compliment to the SPEED television package. This, along with the addition of GEICO Powersports as Presenting Sponsor, sets the stage for a very bright future.”
