Some light has been given to the off-road racing short-course world with the recent announcement from the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) about the season kick-off. The 2020 LOORRS season kicks off June 5th and 6th at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona.
“This has been an ongoing and continually evolving process, but from the get-go, our primary goal has been to go racing again,” Ritchie Lewis, Director of Race Operations, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series said. “We have a stellar partnership with Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, and the open lines of communication we’ve had with the track and local officials, along with persistent assessments of the pandemic in Arizona, have allowed us to establish dates that we feel optimistic about being able to get cars on the track, and fans in the stands.”
When fans and racers show up to race under the lights they will notice something new about the track at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. The track layout at Wild Horse Pass has undergone a full makeover with the help of six-time and reigning Pro 4 Champion Kyle LeDuc, resulting in a fast, technical, and multi-groove design aimed at maximizing the performance of the vehicles across all nine classes.
“The health and well being of everyone is paramount in getting our season underway,” Lewis explained. “That’s why we’re taking every element of the race weekend into consideration, and looking to make adjustments as needed. There are a lot of layers and variables to account for in hosting an event of this caliber, and each day presents a potential new set of challenges for us to tackle, so we’ll continue to work in cohesion with the Gila River Indian Community, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, and local health officials to ensure these dates remain a safe option, both for our fans and our competitors.”
