High-Flying TORC Series Racing Returns to The Dirt Track
TORC: The Off-Road Championship presented by AMSOIL, the popular Baja-style off-road truck racing series, will return to The Dirt Track at Charlotte April 25-26 with the Husqvarna Showdown. The TORC series includes popular drivers Jessie and Jarit Johnson, brothers to NASCAR star Jimmie Johnson, Arie Luyendyk Jr., and father and son duo, Johnny and CJ Greaves.
Drivers push the limits over jump filled natural terrain tracks in two- or four-wheel drive trucks built to race. With unrivalled action, TORC bridges the gap between extreme sports and traditional racing with an edge not found in other forms of motorsports. The radical obstacles at The Dirt Track will offer genuine racing excitement that will have fans hooked.
The event will feature three divisions of competitors including PRO4, PRO2 and PRO Light. The track they'll compete on within The Dirt Track is a U-shaped half-mile with banked turns, tight corners and a table-top jump, sure to produce great racing.
Gates open both Friday and Saturday at 4 p.m. followed by qualifying, with opening ceremonies scheduled for 7 p.m. At the conclusion of each night, there will be a public pit party where fans can get up close to the drivers and their trucks.
Tickets purchased in advance are $10 per day, and children 12 and under get in for free. Fans can purchase tickets by visiting www.torcseries.com or at the gate on the day of the event.
