Scott-Douglas-TORC-Chicago-6-23-15

The latest weekend of the TORC Series presented by AMSOIL was titled, the Chicagoland Slam, and the event quickly lived up to the title. After Douglas Motorsports ended Thursday night with a podium finish, Friday night ended early due to the “Slam” that was a major component in both PRO-4×4 rounds of racing. Regardless of the outcome Scott Douglas knows his team continues to give him a really fast race truck every time he enters the track.

Brian-Deegan-Lucas-Oil-6-23-15
The final race for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah was bittersweet for Brian Deegan. Miller Motorsports Park will be ceasing operations in October of this year. Unless a new lessee comes forward to take over the track, it might have been the final race there for the Lucas Oil Series. It was also the first podium for Brian Deegan in his new Rockstar Energy / Makita Power Tools / Ford Pro-4. After a hard fought race in round 7 that saw several re-starts, Deegan worked his way up from the 7th spot to finish on the podium in third. Due to all the starting and stopping, his engine was running a bit hot. He had to drive at a restrained pace in the closing laps. He knew there was more left in it for round 8 on Sunday. He set a milestone for the new truck but at a track that will be relegated to history and therefore never repeated.

2016 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty
Ram Trucks announced the pricing and performance numbers of its 2016 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickups, and it’s clear the brand is looking to up the ante to build upon its “best in class” claims for the segment.

Ram engineers went back to the drawing board to recalibrate turbo boost and fuel delivery in its 6.7-liter I-6 Cummins diesel engine, as it will produce an additional 35 lb.-ft. of torque compared to the 2015 version. This will increase the 6.7’s torque output 35 lb.-ft. from 865 to 900, which Ram notes is “a number never achieved in a mass-produced vehicle.” Ram also notes the 2016 Ram 2500 will continue to lead the 3/4-ton towing figures with its 17,980-pound capacity.
