Loorrs to add SXSs to National ScheduleHaving proven to be a hit with fans, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO has announced that Production 1000 UTVs have been added to the LOORRS national event schedule for 2017 season. Named the fastest-growing class at the Lucas Oil Regional level, UTVs were featured at the national series final weekend of the 2016 season in Chandler, Arizona. The racing proved to be tight, wild and a crowd favorite so LOORRS decided to give the spectators (and sponsors) what they want. We can’t wait for a great 2017 season of UTV racing at LOORRS .
New Management, Positive Changes Ahead for Area BFERobert Lucero is now the sole owner of AreaBFE. Lucero was majority owner of the property south of Moab, UT. since it was purchased in 2004, and has since acquired 100 percent ownership. Lucero is a long time enthusiast of extreme rock crawling and previously competed in XRRA (Xtreme Rock Racing Association).
AreaBFE is a 320-acre recreational park that is open to a variety of outdoor activities. It was purchased in 2004 during a SITLA land auction in order to preserve a place where OHV enthusiasts could go without the threat of getting kicked off and people would always have a place to recreate. AreaBFE currently has 9 extreme rock crawling trails, a test zone, camping, and parking. The property is surrounded by BLM lands on three sides and private property to the west.
With this change also comes a change of management at the park. Lucero has brought on Stage V Media to cover all marketing aspects and manage the park. Valerie Douglas, owner of Stage V Media, is well known in 4-Wheel drive industry not only as an avid rock crawler, but a writer, photographer, racer, and trail advocate. She understands what AreaBFE is as she uses the park in her Twisted Customs buggy. Christian Brunner, Ralph Randolph and Detail Dan will all remain involved in making the park what it is and will grow to be in the future.
AreaBFE will remain open to public as it has in the past, however donations are much appreciated to help keep the park open and maintained. In the future, look forward to new trails and improvements to the park, as well as an updated website and a lot more activity from their social media accounts.
