TRAXXAS OFF ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP UNDER NEW DIRECTION

Indianapolis, IN. The United States Auto Club (USAC Racing), in conjunction with its corporate partners, announced today the reorganization of The TRAXXAS Off Road Championship Series presented by AMSOIL.

In its inaugural 2009 season, USAC Racing managed racing operations and officiating of the TORC series. For 2010, USAC will expand responsibilities to oversee all management of the off road series. USAC's mission is to ensure a smooth transition and continue to provide premier short course off road racing for competitors and fans alike.

"Ricky Johnson's vision, along with Mitch Covington's passion, built a successful off road program with great venues such as Crandon's Big House, outstanding competition, and incredible media coverage in just a few short months last year," stated Kevin Miller, CEO of USAC Racing.

The year 2010 offers a significant opportunity to promote the sport and continue the success and tradition that has been part of Off Road Racing for over 41 years. The new Traxxas Off Road Championship Series presented by AMSOIL will feature many new venues for the drivers, sponsors and most importantly the fans.

Drivers will enjoy lower fees, bigger purses and new venues to showcase their talent. Participating tracks are gearing up to host the new series which will also feature a soon to be released "Triple Crown Event."

Series sponsors include TRAXXAS, AMSOIL, Monster Energy, Kuhmo Tires, KMC Wheels, Oakley, Ford Trucks, BF Goodrich Tires and Maxxis Tires. Additional series sponsors and major announcements, including finalized race and television packages, are expected as the series kicks off the 2010 season May 1-2 at USA Raceway in Tucson, Arizona.

The long term success and history of USAC will provide for a winning series as USAC is the most diverse motorsports organization in the country today.

Sanctioning includes Silver Crown, Sprint Cars, Midget Racing, .25 Midgets, Bonneville Salt Flat Land Speed records, and Off Road racing. USAC has partnerships with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and the Fireball Run Adventure Rally.

Get ready to see the best Off Road has to offer, starting with our inauguration event May 1-2 at the USA Raceway in Tucson, Arizona!
