The Traxxas TORC Series, presented by AMSOIL, off-road championship short course racing will make its southern debut, July 22-23, at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The fastest, most punishing short course truck racing series on the planet features legendary off-road drivers - including five-time AMA Motocross champion Ricky Johnson and the "Fast & Furious" movie franchise stunt driver/drifter Samuel Hubinette - in a series of bodywork-tearing, truck-flipping battles that'll have everyone on their feet hollering at the non-stop action. NASCAR drivers Kyle Busch and Robby Gordon have also been known to get behind the wheel in TORC racing.

Bridging the gap between action sport and motorsports, TORC Series short course off-road truck racing delivers radical jumps and an edge that will certainly win over fans at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.
