The all-stars of short course racing collide for the ultimate pay day. Professional pride, bragging rights and the richest payday in off road, the Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup is the all-or-nothing season finale showdown.

The lineup features a sure to be thrilling PRO-2 vs. PRO-4 battle and you will not want to miss the one of a kind race of Pro Lite Vs. Pro Buggy. This totally unique event delivers on your feet excitement and non-stop thrills. No one has ever dared to combine class racing like Lucas Oil Off Road has. 

Pro Lite Vs. Pro Buggy will display off road trucks and off road buggies on the same track racing for the same prize. This collision of short course chaos guarantees flag to flag excitement. The underrated ranks of Pro Buggy will once again set out to prove they are faster then the trucks. Wheelmen like Cameron Steele, Jerry Whelchel, Doug Fortin and Larry Job will all be a factor giving the trucks a run for their money. The experience of Marty Hart, the speed of Chris Brandt and Pro Lite Champion Brian Deegan will be standing in the way fighting hard to gain the title back for the trucks. Last years, 2009 Challenge Cup victor, Chuck Cheek won the race in a dominating fashion for the buggies, starting from the very back and passing every single car & truck on the track for the win and earning $20,000 for his efforts. This year the Pro Lite purse totals $35,000.

$53,500 is up for grabs in the PRO-2 Vs. PRO-4 Race. Last year Carl Renezeder took the win in his Lucas Oil PRO-4 Machine. With $30,000 alone going to the winner Carl is likely to have his hands full as all of the best drivers are looking to take home the big payday. Rob MacCachren will be leading the field of PRO-2s in his Rockstar Energy machine. Rodrigo Ampudia, Robby Woods, and Bryce Menzies will also be factors. Look out for Brian Deegan as he made an impressive debut into PRO-2 at the recent Las Vegas rounds 13 & 14. The fiercest challenger will likely be Rick Huseman in a lightning fast PRO-4 Toyota, however don’t ever count out Johnny Greaves, Kyle Leduc and Jeremy McGrath who all have the speed and capabilities to win.

The Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup could be compared to the "Super Bowl" of off road racing. Tony Vanillo, Gary Hubert and the rest of the Lucas Oil Off Road Team have created an incredible track that will offer the most aggressive "Supercross" style obstacles yet. Multiple line choices, table top rhythm sections, downhill ski jumps, uphill steps ups, Firebird International Raceway has it all and is about to get down and dirty. Which machines will reach the finish line first? 2wd or 4wd? Truck or Buggy? One thing is left for certain; The Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup will solidify who are the worlds fastest off road drivers.
