Gene Woods Racing and TapouT Founders Join Forces to Compete in National Race Series to Be Announced at UFC Fan Expo

TapouT Founders Plan to Train and Compete in Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORS) With NASCAR Driver, and Three-Time National Speedway Champion Gene Woods

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jul 3, 2013) - Dan ("PunkASS") Caldwell and Tim ("SkySCRAPE") Katz have come together with Gene Woods and Gene Woods Racing (http://www.genewoods.com) to train to drive professionally in the most prominent Off Road short track truck series in the world. The Lucas Oil Off Road Series (http://www.lucasoiloffroad.com) boasts an international televised schedule on CBS, CBS SPORTS, NBC SPORTS Speed Channel and MAVTV with an estimated 150 Million fans and over 200 hours of programming.

This is the partnership that will bring the magnitude of MMA together with the fastest growing motor sport second only to NASCAR in popularity. These races have been continuously compared to a fist fight in the dirt behind the wheel of extreme horse powered off road trucks. The demographics of the two sports are parallel and having the TapouT founders as Celebrity Team Drivers is destined to grab the attention of the fans of both genres.

Dan, Tim and Gene will be attending the UFC Fan Expo at the TapouT Hybrid booth to announce their plans for participation, meet fans and informally discuss the cross-promotion. The partnership of both parties is sure to bring an exciting new challenge to both sports by bringing new fans to both MMA and Off Road Racing. The Fan Expo is a perfect venue to share the future of the race team with the fans of both TapouT and Gene Woods.
