SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Salt Lake City based event, marketing and broadcast agency, Mountain Sports International, Inc. (MSI), has acquired full ownership of TORC: The Off Road Racing Championship presented by Amsoil. TORC is the nation’s premier short-course, off-road truck racing series. Along with the ownership announcement, an updated schedule for the 2016 TORC series has also been released featuring seven stops.
Holland, MI – The effort that Ross Hoek Motorsports has put forward competing in the premier division of short-course off-road racing is nothing short of herculean. The privateer PRO-4×4 racer entered his sophomore season with one goal in mind, finish on the podium. Last weekend at the most storied short-course venue in North America, Ross Hoek stood on the final step of the podium after finishing Round Eight in third place.
El Cajon, CA (July 2, 2013) – After a rough start to the weekend, Scott Douglas and the #7 AMSOIL Borla Exhaust BFGoodrich Tire Ford F-150 came to life on day two of the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run in Crandon, Wisconsin. The team’s brand new race truck, built entirely in-house at Douglas Motorsports, has shown great speed on the short tracks, but has struggled somewhat on the bigger free flowing layouts, but after the great result in Round 8, the team is looking forward to a strong second half of the TORC season.
It seems like whenever the Traxxas TORC Series presented by AMSOIL sets up shop at any venue this season, rain finds its way into the forecast. The June stop in Crandon continued that pattern. The Friday afternoon practice and qualifying sessions were cancelled thanks to the rain showers that fell throughout the day.
Auburn Hills, Mich. — With the 2012 season quickly winding down for Mopar® and Ram Truck drivers in the Traxxas TORC (The Off-Road Championship) Series, it’s go-time as just two events remain in the battle for the championship in each of the three PRO Classes. The title fight will resume this weekend, Aug. 31–Sept. 2, at the legendary Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Wisconsin, with the running of the World Championship Off-Road races.
Andrew Caddell (PRO Light) and Ricky Johnson (PRO 4) have each won a series-best six races in their Mopar Ram trucks heading into the event at Crandon. Rob MacCachren and Bryce Menzies have each been victorious three times in PRO 2. In addition to the originally scheduled two rounds of competition at Crandon, the PRO 2 and PRO 4 classes will contest an additional race on Friday, Aug. 31, which is the completion of an event that was postponed by rain in June.
