"We are very excited about the opportunity that was given to us by Lucas Oil and MAVTV to represent them as the MAVTV team for both short course and desert," reported Stronghold Motorsports Managing Partner, Scott Bailey. "We have been a Lucas Oil partner for about four years now, and we very much enjoy the relationship and the core values that Forrest Lucas and his team have, and how they match ours in daily business. Both in business and racing, we are a very family orientated team, so we're proud that we've been asked to join the MAVTV family, and we're going to do everything possible to make it a long and happy relationship."
For the 2014 season the Stronghold Motorsports team will be campaigning in the red, white and blue colors of the MAVTV American Real network.

The K&N supported Riverside, California based off-road racing team will be sporting new colors for the 2014 season, as they will compete in the red, white and blue colors of the MAVTV American Real network in both the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and selected desert endurance events.

MAVTV, which has quickly become the leading network for motorsports coverage, stresses family values in both its management and programming. That philosophy also is the Stronghold cornerstone and Scott said after several successful years fielding multiple entries, the team will focus on that again.

"TV and the exposure that it brings are not the driving factors of why we participate in off-road racing," Scott added. "Our interest dates back to the late 1970's and the Mickey Thompson SCORE Off road World Championships that were held at the Riverside International Raceway. We currently have three generations of our family racing and that's very important to us.

The team drivers competing in the Lucas Oil series of short course races will be Scott's son, Brandon Bailey in Pro 4, grandson Madix Bailey in Jr.1 Kart, and Larry Job in Pro Buggy. Scott, Brandon and Larry will share the driving in the team's new MAVTV Alumi Craft Chevrolet Class 1 desert car. "We are very excited about the new car and its performance and expect a very successful year," Scott said.

The team began testing the Class 1 car early in January and opened its four-race desert season at the Best in the Desert (BITD) BlueWater Parker 425 in Parker, Arizona, on February 1-2, 2014. The team of Brandon Bailey, Scott Bailey and Larry Job drove Stronghold's new MAVTV/Toyo AlumiCraft Chevrolet to a 16th place finish overall and 2nd in the Unlimited Open Wheel class. Team manager Matt Salgado called it a "pretty awesome debut," and it could have been even better if not for a mechanical failure.

A new MAVTV Ford Pro 4 is being built for Brandon, who was the 2013 Rookie of the Year in the class, and that will debut when the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series opens March 22-23 at Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona.

MAVTV plans to slowly increase its live motorsports programming, beginning with coverage of the famed Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals January 18 and a return to the Challenge Cup on October 25. In addition they have signed broadcasting icon, Dave DeSpain, to host its live events and his own 30-minute interview and highlights show. MAVTV American Real is the fastest-growing network in the country and the leader in grass-roots motorsports coverage.
