Question- Do you have to be a sponsered driver to run at the worlds?

No. You have to qualify for the worlds, that's it. or, be selected by the appropriate sanctioning body (ROAR, FEMCA, JMRCA, etc).

Needless to say, if you're good enough to qualify from the US and much more importantly are a good representative for companies, you are probably sponsored in some form.

So then technically, if Lutz is not sponsered at this moment or when the race begins, he can still run at the worlds and chose ANY chassis he would like?

It's not a technicality at all.

Lutz qualified for the worlds because he placed high enough in the ROAR fuel offroad nats. Anyone that makes the qualifying cutoff in their respective nationals and/or gets selected can enter the worlds, regardless if they're sponsored by nike, chick-fil-a, or visa.

I used that word because it is the only one I could think of at the moment.

What is chick-fil-a? Is it a company or something or slang?

that's odd, I'm sponsored by my VISA card and they didn't send me an invite.
