Approximately 100 West Coast off-road racers will make their way to Fort Worth on May 15-16 for the Traxxas TORC (The Off-Road Championship) Series season opener at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.
The Traxxas TORC Series branched off of CORR (Championship Off-Road Racing), which was a series that visited the TMS Dirt Track in 2007. The newly developed TORC series, sanctioned under the United States Auto Club, combines CORR’s off-road competition with other various racing entities across the U.S., utilizing short tracks and larger outdoor motocross-inspired courses.
Texas Motor Speedway’s .4-mile clay oval dirt track will be transformed into a whoop-and jump-filled course that is suited for flag-to-flag fender banging and high-flying freestyle action. The two-day competition features four off-road divisions – the Pro Super Buggy, Pro Light Truck, AMSOIL Pro 2-Wheel Drive Truck and Pro 4x4 Truck. In addition, a special freestyle motocross event will take place featuring Red Bull freestyle athlete Jeff Tilton.
Daily tickets for the Traxxas TORC Series event are $35 for adults, $10 for children ages 10-15 and free for children ages nine and under. In addition, family 5-packs are available for $75. Tickets can be purchased by calling 817-215-8500 or visiting www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
