TORC-Logo-12-2-13CONCORD, N.C. – A near-capacity crowd at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway watched an epic battle between Scott Douglas and Adrian Cenni Saturday night that resulted in Douglas earning his first TORC: The Off-Road Championship Presented by AMSOIL PRO 4 victory since Joliet in 2012.

CJ Greaves broke out the broom, sweeping both PRO 2 races in the Husqvarna Showdown in Charlotte while Jarett Brooks took the PRO Light win, becoming the first driver in that class to make multiple trips to the top spot on the podium. Douglas started the PRO 4 race on the pole, but didn’t remain there long as Cenni battled him for the lead throughout the first half of the race. Johnny Greaves, Friday night’s victor, saw challenges from Mark Jenkins and Mike Jenkins for third. After the competition yellow, the four drivers made a frantic dash for the top spot, at one point diving into Turn 3 four wide. During the battle, Cenni earned his nickname of The Wildman as he lost a right-front tire but continued to race wide open. Despite a late-race challenge from Mark Jenkins, Douglas was able to take the top spot with Mark finishing second and Mike Jenkins rounding out the podium.
