As if world-class R/C racing, full-size short-course competition, and the spectacle of the TORC series weren’t already enough reason to get yourself to a TORC R/C Challenge race, here’s another reason to make the trip: you might win a ride in the Traxxas TORC Pace Truck! Unlike most pace trucks that are lightly modded vehicles off the showroom floor, the TORC Pace Truck is actually a race-ready Pro 2WD racer that has been outfitted with a passenger seat. With over 600 horsepower and long-travel suspension, it’s built to hang it all out on the racetrack.
All registered R/C racers are automatically entered in a drawing for the ride of a lifetime, along with a “Pace Truck Edition” Slash and a full set of Traxxas apparel. Mark Bruss was the big winner in Oshkosh, and his turn in the Pace Truck came with an extra bonus: the driver was none other than Ricky Johnson, the current Pro 2WD points leader and legendary motocross racer. Mark asked Ricky, “Are you going to sandbag, since I’m inside the truck, or are you going to put the hammer down?” Ever the racer, Ricky didn’t hesitate and reassured Mark, saying, “Don't worry. I’m going to let it loose!” Three high-flying laps later, Mark slid out of the roll cage, pulled off his helmet and let us know how it went. “It was awesome, absolutely awesome!” exclaimed Mark. ”I had the time of my life. It was Christmas in July for this guy!
The TORC Pace Truck Slash and the Traxxas clothing was nothing less than icing on the cake for a great day of Slash racing with friends. I'll never forget this great experience,” added Mark later. Don’t miss your chance to win. Sign up for the next Traxxas TORC R/C Challenge event today!
