USAC ANNOUNCES CONTINUED TORC PURSE INCREASES

Indianapolis, IN. The United States Auto Club (USAC Racing), in conjunction with its corporate sponsors in the TRAXXAS Off Road Championship, today announced purse increases for the PRO-4x4 and PRO-2WD Divisions for the 2010 season.

Both PRO 4x4 and PRO 2WD competitors will be rewarded with weekend purses of $18,000 for the combined two-day race weekends. For PRO-4x4, thatâ^a^Ùs a 64% increase versus 2009 class purses, and for PRO-2WD we have increased purses by 100%â^a^y stated Kevin Miller, CEO of USAC Racing.

Additionally, the TORC Series announced a significant reduction for the PRO-4x4 and PRO-2WD class entry fees to just $750 per race weekend!

New for 2010, the Series will feature a new race format for line-ups. Races will no longer be lined up by points as done last year. The initial round of a 2-day event weekend will be aligned by qualifying times established each weekend. Round 2 will feature the first 6 finishers locked in, then inverted, for the feature event. The rest of the field will be established by the fastest lap during race action in Round 1.

The TORC Series makes its season debut in Antigo, WI June 5-6 for the Sportsman Divisions, and the Pro Series kicks off at the â^a^ÜBig Houseâ^a^y in Crandon, WI on June 19-20.

Series sponsors include TRAXXAS, AMSOIL, Monster Energy, Kumho Tires, KMC Wheels, Oakley, Ford Trucks, and BF Goodrich Tires. Additional series sponsors and major announcements are expected as the season progresses.

USAC is the most diverse motorsorts organization in the country today, sanctioning Silver Crown, Sprint Cars, Midget Racing, .25 Quarter Midgets, Bonneville Salt Flat Land Speed records, Off Road racing, as well as partnerships with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and the Fireball Run Adventure Rally.
