Stronghold Motorsport Joins MAVTV Family


RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Stronghold Motorsports will have a new look this season, as the Riverside-based off-road racing team will be don the red, white and blue colors of the MAVTV American Real network in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and selected desert endurance events.

MAVTV, which has become the leading network for motorsports coverage, stresses family values in both its management and programming. That philosophy also is the Stronghold cornerstone.

“After several successful years fielding multiple entries the team will focus on that again,” said Scott Bailey, team managing partner.

“This is all about family. That’s why we started the team. We’re going to refocus on that and go race and have fun.”

Bailey’s son, Brandon Bailey, will drive the team’s Pro 4 truck, his grandson Madix Bailey will drive the Jr. 1 kart and Larry Job will pilot the pro buggy in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.

Scott and Brandon Bailey, along with Job, will share the driving in the team’s new MAVTV Alumi Craft Chevrolet Class 1 desert car.

The team will begin testing the Class 1 car in early January and open its four-race desert season at the Best in the Desert BlueWater Parker 425 in Parker, Ariz., Feb. 1-2.
