VIDEO: High-Flying Action at the 2016 Lucas Oil Challenge CupPosted in Events on October 27, 2016 0) (
The 2016 Lucas Oil Challenge Cup marked the end of the racing series’ 2016 season, and what an end it was. Taking place October 23, the blistering-hot races brought lots of action back to Chandler, Arizona, for one last hurrah before the start of next season in March.
While regular-season races racked up points for competitors and teams, the Challenge Cup gave them one thing, and one thing only: bragging rights for being the best and fastest around the track. Okay, there was some prize money on hand as well.
The most exciting race we enjoyed pitted the Pro 2 Unlimited trucks against the Pro 4 Unlimited. Pro 2s were given a two-second handicap to help them out against the faster Pro 4s, but as our on-site video proves, it took Pro 4 drivers about 18 laps to catch their peers.
No matter how you look at it, the Challenge Cup was a fun, one-off, lighthearted way to close out the season, and until it returns next year, we’ll miss the off-road, mud-slinging action.
