NEWRY, Maine — Kicking off 2014 with a rip, eight 900-horsepower off-road Pro4 trucks will race head-to-head in the snowy climate of Maine’s renowned Sunday River Resort on Friday, January 10 for Red Bull Frozen Rush. Defying climate constraints, ripping figure eights and flying off jumps on steep snowy inclines and declines is what eight professional drivers will use to test their skills against one another on uncharted territory for the first time.
Off road truck racing is normally reserved for the dirt speedways of summer, spring and fall, but there is nothing usual about Red Bull Frozen Rush. First explored by three-time TORC Series Champion Ricky Johnson in February 2013. The 49 year-old former motocross and supercross athlete enjoyed the challenge of taking on uncharted territory like soft snow, steep terrain, ice and freezing temperatures and wanted more off-road drivers to experience the thrill.
