Paul Oil Company of La Mesa, California is among the leading producers of race fuels in the world and they produce all types of multi-grade racing fuels for race engines. Besides being the major fuel provider for NASCAR, SUNOCO also sponsors and provides racing fuels for most major off-road desert series.
According to Lou Peralta, promoter of the PURE SERIES, “This is big for us. We’ve been using SUNOCO for years for our desert cars, so I know it’s a great product. I’m delighted that they see our “PURE” Series as the opening to even greater things. They confided that the Side-X-Side market is going to grow huge, in great part because of the types of competitions available to them. However, the PURE SIDE-X-SIDE SERIES will establish a new standard for desert off-road racing, endurance racing, exclusively for Side-X-Sides, on a regional, national and even in an international level and they want to be a part of it. We love it!”
And don’t forget, the “Drawing” for starting positions is set for Saturday, April 6, 10 a.m., at the BEST WESTERN Inn & Suites in Cal City. Immediately thereafter (NOON), racers, families and friends will be taken on a 50-mile “Excursion” of the course, followed by snacks and refreshments at the start/finish line located at the Alta Vista Ranch.
The course will not have any markings but everyone is welcomed to bring their own GPS system to highlight sections of the race course for their use during competition. All entries will receive the “usr” file to use during the event, even if you do not attend the “Excursion.”
The “PURE” Series features a five-event schedule, starting with the “200” miler — (four-laps, 50-mile each) romp in the deserts of California City, which is scheduled for April 19-21, 2013. Four more events follow with the “300,” “350,” “250,” and the“400”-miler to cap the first year of the series. This is the country’s first “Unique” ALL Side-X-Side Series, which features at least one lap in the daylight and the rest at nightime.
A “special award” is also presented to those who complete every single mile of each event. Those who do will qualify for the“1.5K-KUP” the top award given at the end of the Series.
