Elk River, Minn. July 17, 2018 – The biggest motorsports weekend in the Twin Cities did not disappoint thousands of fans as the ERX Motor Park Off-Road National presented by Polaris delivered a 900-horsepower assault on the senses. With more than 5,000 fans in attendance for the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League off-road truck series, the visceral racing atmosphere was bolstered by live music, ATV freestyle shows, Polaris RS1 celebrity race, outdoor expo, and a kids fun zone.
With plenty of hot and steamy weather on tap throughout the two-day event, the earth shredding action on the purpose-built one-mile off-road racing track easily trumped Mother Nature. With top off-road racers including the father/son duo of Johnny and CJ Greaves, Chad Hord, Mike Vanden Heuvel, and hometown favorite Andrew Carlson, the thunderous roar of 900-horsepower trucks saw fans soaking up the rays to witness the power and high-flying action. To add to the excitement and much to the delight of his hometown fans, Carlson found himself on the podium three times in the top truck classes.
There were plenty of other celebrities on tap beyond the Lucas Oil competitors. Polaris Industries showcased their rally inspired RS1 with a race featuring former snocross champ and current action sport athlete Levi LaVallee, as well as Diesel Dave and The Muscle from Discovery Channel’s hit television show “Diesel Brothers.”
