Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels Sponsors Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Racing Series


Stow, OH - In addition to its sponsorship of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS), Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels (Mickey Thompson) has expanded its relationship to include the regional grass roots short course racing series, the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Racing Series. Through this relationship, Mickey Thompson will support racers as a MiniStock Class sponsor.

According to Lucas Oil, this sponsorship translates to real world support of racers who build and compete in small, production-based trucks. MiniStock Class racers rely primarily on stock components and with minor modifications, these production trucks are converted into competition vehicles. Mickey Thompson's support means support to racers who are passionate about the sport, but don't have a huge budget.
"As we celebrate 50 years, we want to remain true to the legacy of our company, and it's important for us to have an active and meaningful role in supporting racers on the ground," stated Ken Warner, VP Sales & Marketing, Mickey Thompson."This role offers us the perfect opportunity to support racers, and our off-road tires, like the Baja MTZ and Baja ATZ, are perfect for these high performance off-road applications."

The MiniStock class is one of the fastest growing racing classes in the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road series both here in southern California as well as in Arizona, stated Lee Perfect, LOORRS Director. Because of the limited modifications and smaller budgets, the MiniStock teams are always looking for every advantage, and Mickey Thompson's involvement is really going to make a big difference.

The Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Racing Series includes six events beginning Feb. 23 at Glen Helen Raceway. For more information, visit www.LucasOilRegional.com.
