This weekend marks Jesse Jones’ return to short-course off-road racing, jumping behind the wheel of the brand new FOX Pro-2. Jones will be debuting the new truck at “The Big House”, Crandon International Raceway, for TORC Series rounds 14 & 15 as well as competing in the AMSOIL Cup where the Pro-2 and Pro-4 go head to head for $40,000, winner takes all.
“Going short course racing was never apart of the plan for 2013″, Jones said with a smile, “but when my Trophy Truck teammate Bryce Menzies mentioned he was building a new truck, I said I wanted one too. The decision was made right then and there.”
Behind the build would be the mastermind of Ricky Johnson’s 2011 & 2012 Traxxas TORC Series Championship winning Pro-4, Mike Krahling. The truck was built from the ground up in the Las Vegas shop of Menzies Motorsports and with over a year of development and planning, the truck finally hit dirt just a few weeks ago for multiple photo shoots and test sessions.
