The Wild West Motorsports Park will host two Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series events this summer, showcasing northern Nevada as a premier racing site and giving fans double the action!

LOORS_Driver Facebook Graphics_40428The Lucas Oil Series announced that Wild West Motorsports Park will host weekend races May 30-31 in addition to the race planned for Aug. 22-23. This is the third year in a row Wild West Motorsports Park has hosted a Lucas Oil Off Road Race and the first time there has been two races in one season.

Fans have come to enjoy watching Brian Deegan, Jeremy McGrath, Carl Renezeder, Rodrigo Ampudia and the top racers of the sport reach speeds of 90 MPH and jump 100-plus feet through the air in 900 horsepower trucks.

One of the newest plans for both races is the addition of lights and nighttime racing. It goes back back to old-school Friday and Saturday night racing that happened all across our country. It’s a whole new experience watching the action under the lights.

Wild West Motorsports Park is located only 10 minutes east from downtown Reno.
