Ross-Hoek-TORC-Off-Road-6-27-13Holland, MI – The Ross Hoek Motorsports team took a big step in the development of its TORC PRO-4×4 race program during the three race weekend in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The #10 Motive Gear/Auto Trans Design/Maxxis Tire/Toyota made its first competitive laps at one of the fastest and toughest tracks in short-course off-road racing, Bark River Off-Road Raceway.

Ross Hoek headed to Bark River with more confidence about all aspects of the PRO-4×4 race program after a frustrating weekend of rain at Eldora. Ross is very familiar with the Upper Michigan racetrack garnering multiple race wins there throughout his career. Ross and his team’s goals were simple for Bark River; complete all the laps in all three rounds of racing and learn the truck. Seat time is crucial in any new race program and the #10 Motive Gear/Auto Trans Design/Maxxis Tire/Toyota completed every lap at Bark River giving Ross the ability to use more of the truck’s potential as well as gathering larger quantities of information through the Stack data acquisition and instrumentation system.
