Over the eight weekend season, featuring fifteen rounds of racing, drivers will be vying for a combined, year end championship purse total of two hundred thousand dollars. Series Race Director, Tony Vanillo, expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming season. "We had an unbelievably successful inaugural year. Parlaying that momentum into these partnerships developed during the off season allows us to provide our drivers and teams with a fantastic purse payout. With the backing of Lucas Oil and our amazing group of sponsors we have the opportunity to present our teams with a significant championship payday."
This combined payout represents a seventeen percent increase in the championship purses that were awarded at the conclusion of the inaugural 2009 season. The series has developed into one of the cornerstones of Lucas Oil Products motorsports marketing efforts. Lucas Oil Executive Vice-President, Bob Patison commented on the series as preparations are underway for the first LOORRS event on March 6th and 7th in Lake Elsinore, California. "The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is realizing rapid growth as we are attracting new interest from a variety of companies. While the series is strong, we are committed to making sure our teams and drivers share in the continued success and stability of the sport."
