What is TORC?
The Traxxas TORC Series-THE Off Road Championship, is the fastest,
most punishing short course racing series on the planet. TORC events
are packed with flag-to-flag fender banging as drivers push the limits
over whoop and jump filled natural terrain racetracks. Off-road racing
fans come from far and wide to experience this most challenging form
of high-octane competition and once they taste TORC for the first time
they’ll be hooked for life.
Initially, TORC was the brainchild of a group of pro drivers with one
goal: unification of the various off-road racing entities across the
U.S., and create the highest standard of competition. Once the
creative juices began to flow between Ricky Johnson, drivers, fans and
sponsors alike it wasn’t too long before the need for an entirely new
racing series became obvious: The Traxxas TORC Series.
With unparalleled action, TORC bridges the gap between extreme sports,
traditional racing and even mixed martial arts. The series has an
“edge” not found in other forms of racing focused on a younger fan
base versus more traditional motorsports. TORC utilizes a variety of
short-tracks and larger outdoor motocross-inspired courses with a
different look, a different feel, and more genuine “Kick-Ass” racing
USAC: The United States Auto Club (USAC) adds a
superior level of professionalism to the series. USAC will play a
major role in series operations just as it does in the K&N Silver
Crown Series, National Sprint Car Series, Mopar Midget Nationals, Ford
Focus, and 1/4 Midget series. Each year TORC champions will be
recognized for their achievements at the prestigious USAC banquet.

Title Sponsor. “The Traxxas TORC Series” or “THE Traxxas
