Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo
High-powered off-road vehicles soaring through the air, gorgeous women in bikinis prancing around on stage and ice cold beer to distract you from the heat—these have to be good enough reasons to unlatch that toy trailer from your lifted F-250 this weekend. The desert won’t hold it against you, so consider attending the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo at the Pomona Fairplex. You can even keep your girlfriend from naggin‘ and bring her along—the Dirt Theatre provides a romantic atmosphere to cuddle up and watch big wheel action. The expo aims to cater to every aspect of the off-road lifestyle, whether you’re looking to tweak your ride or merely looking for heavy entertainment courtesy of the Toyota Ride & Drive, freestyle motocross, a tribute to the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame—plus the Miss Off-Road Expo Contest! With over 300 vendors selling the latest gear, your need to spray dirt will be pacified to say the least. Test drive a new ATV, watch high-flying stunts, get autographs from Maxxis Tire driver Brian Deegan and more. Ditch the desert for this one weekend.
