Frana-TORC-Off-Road-8-16-13Loves Park, IL – The weekend of short-course racing at Red Bud MX had John Frana run some of the quickest laps in the PRO Buggy class as the #907 RCV Performance/”the Official” Brand Name Prescription Card/Sway-A-Way/Frana Vehicles Honda-powered AWD single seater had back to back podium finishes on the most technical layout in the Traxxas TORC Series presented by AMSOIL.

The one-mile long layout ran through the same valley that the national motocross track is built on and it had many of the same characteristics that two-wheeled racers have grown to enjoy. The track had multiple elevation changes, big air jumps, a variety of turns, and of course the infamous loamy soil that can really create problems if a driver wanders off the racing groove.
