AN EYE FOR THE FAST LINE GUIDES THE RED BULL OFF-ROAD RACING BARLOW MOTORSPORTS TEAM

Bark River, Michigan-You can give a driver all the right tools-the best equipment, the most horsepower, proper tuning, and a championship caliber team-but those things are lost without a winning eye and innate feel for the fast way around the race track. At the last TORC Series race presented by AMSOIL in Crandon, Wisconsin, the Barlow Motorsports Red Bull Off-Road Racing team trucks driven by Steve Barlow and Ricky Johnson set the pace showing the fast way around the circuit.

Steve Barlow honed his off-road driving skills desert racing, where reading the terrain is essential to both finish and win. Barlow is a true off-road ace with Protruck championships and multiple victories including the Baja 1000. Ricky Johnson's off-road racing legacy began on two wheels, winning seven AMA National Motocross Championships. That talent and eye for the fast way around a race course obviously translates directly to four wheels. Ricky Johnson currently leading TORC Series PRO 2WD points and claimed a decisive 2009 Chairman's Cup victory at Crandon.

TORC Series action resumes July 11th and 12st at the Bark River International Off-Road Raceway in Bark River, Michigan. Rounds 7 & 8 will air Sunday July 19th at 11:30 am on ESPN2.
