INDIANAPOLIS – The Traxxas TORC Off-Road Series presented by AMSOIL announced a new partnership today with Red Bull Media House which will offer live coverage of select 2013 Series races.
The new partnership will showcase the 900 horsepower, 4000 pound battle trucks – fighting on crowd-friendly, short course tracks and jumping 100 feet in the air – streamed live on www.RedBull.TV.
The series features seven-time MX champion Ricky Johnson and desert sensation Bryce Menzies, Red Bull athletes who have combined for four series championships in the past two years.
TORC visits a wide array of tracks across the U.S., kicking off at two of America’s premier dirt ovals, Dodge City Raceway in Kansas and Eldora Speedway, owned by Tony Stewart and a newstop for the NASCAR truck series in July. The series also makes a stop at Red Bud MX, the largest attended MX race on the East Coast. The Series is showcased at the two largest attended off-road races of the year, Bark River and Crandon Int’l Off-Road, the grandaddy of all off-road racing.
“The opportunity presented by Red Bull Media House to deliver live digital coverage to their worldwide fanbase is a game-changer. Our sport has seen significant growth in recent years and to expand to the Red Bull audience worldwide will be a boost to our race teams and sponsors” stated Kevin Miller, CEO of USAC Racing, the sports sanctioning body.
