HISTORY, TRADITION AND A GREAT ATMOSPHERE HIGHLIGHT RACE OF CHAMPIONS WEEKEND AND “THE GREATEST TRADITION IN MODIFIED RACING” THE LUCAS OIL ROC 250

The history surrounding the Lucas Oil Race of Champions 250 is incredible. From Hully Bunn and his first victory at Langhorne, to Andy Jankowiak and his win at Lake Erie Speedway in Northeast, Pennsylvania and everywhere in between the race has become the cornerstone of modified racing.

It is a tradition rich in motorsports history with a great atmosphere. Pre-race pomp and circumstance, a festival of short track racing, a celebration of the sport. The names, the glory, the feelings all add to the conclusion when one individual stands alone with the Al Gerber Trophy on Sunday evening.

“That is our goal,” stated Andy Jankowiak, who last won the Lucas Oil Race of Champions 250. “It is so prestigious and now my name is on that trophy. It’s an honor beyond words and one that we are truly proud of. We have a busy week, but we will be there and our goal is to return to victory lane.”

To do so Jankowiak will fend off a strong field of contenders for the glory and the $15,000 that goes to the winner.
