The Wahoos involvement in the upcoming “Duel in the Desert” is the companys first foray with the TORC series. With deep roots in action sports, Wahoos brings a passionate community that is a perfect match for the action-packed world of short-course, off-road racing.
“With nearly 1 million customers walking through these participating Wahoos locations during the promotional period, this partnership provides TORC with an incredible opportunity to raise awareness for our event and our sponsors,” said TORC President BJ Birtwell. “Wahoos customers typically have an affinity for action sports culture and outdoor sports. We believe theyll appreciate the opportunity to experience 900-horsepower TORC trucks ripping up a revitalized track at Primm Valley Off Road Raceway.”
