After a successful 2011 campaign that brought off-road racing to three new venues, the Traxxas TORC Series presented by AMSOIL has set the course for 2012.
The seven weekend, 14-race season will start where it ended in 2011. A purpose-built track at Cycle Ranch in Floresville, Texas will host the first two rounds of racing April 28-29. Just 30-minutes from downtown San Antonio, Cycle Ranch offered up one of the most technical race tracks on the circuit this past season.
A return to Red Bud MX in Buchanan, Mich. is on tap for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, May 26-27. Despite heavy rains and knee-deep mud, the Red Bud faithful saw some of the most extreme off-road racing this year as the TORC series started at the famed motocross facility.
Big market, NASCAR venues in Chicago and Charlotte are mid-season highlights for the premier off-road, short course series. TORC invades NASCAR country July 13-14 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. it will be a quick turnaround for the teams less than one week later in Joliet, Ill. at Chicagoland Speedway for a Thursday-Friday event.
Historical venues Crandon International Raceway and Bark River International Raceway round out the new schedule. The series returns to its traditional ending in Crandon, Wis. on Labor Day weekend. The final race of the year will be the AMSOIL Cup on Sunday, September 2.
