Corona, California (December 1, 2016) – Polaris, who has been a huge supporter of the Lucas Oil Regional Series Southern California since its inception 5 years ago, recently confirmed their continued support of the series for 2017. Not only will Polaris continue to supply all of the track support vehicles, but they will be giving away 3 brand new UTVs to qualified drivers in 3 of the most popular UTV classes.
“We are so excited to continue our relationship with Polaris. The UTV industry is growing faster than we can keep up with it and we are happy to provide a forum to showcase the capability of these affordable and fun vehicles,” explained series director Lee Perfect. “Our on track team has utilized Polaris vehicles for the last 5 seasons and they are an integral part of our vision to offer grass roots racing in a safe, fun, family friendly environment. The racer bonus we are now able to offer to 3 lucky classes is an incredible benefit to the drivers and the series.”
The highest placing Polaris drivers in the very popular Production 1000 class as well as the fast growing Production Turbo/Unlimited UTV class will each receive a brand new Polaris RZR XP 1000 at the conclusion of the 2017 season. The champion in the up and coming Production 170 class, created in the 2016 season for young drivers ages 6-12 will be awarded a brand new RZR 170. Drivers will need to race a Polaris vehicle for the duration of the season and qualify for the points championship as laid out in the series rulebook.
“Polaris is proud to support drivers that choose RZR both on the race track and off,” stated Race Team Manager Dan Carr. “These drivers embody the winning spirit of Team RZR and help us demonstrate the incredible capabilities of our vehicles. We look forward to continuing to support Polaris RZR drivers and the Lucas Oil Regional Series in Southern California in 2017.”
