INDIANAPOLIS — The Traxxas TORC Series, presented by AMSOIL, enters its fourth season in with a diverse selection of racing venues across the country.
The series will once again feature the largest spectator attended off-road racing event in the U.S., Crandon International Raceway in Crandon, Wis. The annual Labor Day weekend World Championship races have been the cornerstone of the sport since 1970 and were met with record attendance again in 2012.
The series opens the 2013 season with a special event, the Traxxas Invitational at the famed Primm Off Road facility planned to coincide with the Mint 400 weekend. In total there will be 16 rounds of racing over eight planned two-day events, and two additional special events.
TORC will visit two of the nation’s premier dirt track facilities known for hosting major racing events. Off-road racing will make its debut at Dodge City (Kan.) Raceway Park April 12-13 and will make its first appearance at Ohio’s Eldora speedway May 11-12.
TORC returns to Chicagoland Speedway as part of Chicagoland Speedway & Route 66 Raceway’s Rally, Rock, and Race Weekend where a packed house witnessed Travis Pastrana make off-road history in the windy city.
This year TORC will be a featured event with racing action on both Friday and Saturday nights, followed by NASCAR’s Nationwide race on Sunday.
