With the 2014 TORC: The Off-Road Championship Presented by AMSOIL season at its halfway point, the NBC Sports Network, the official television home for TORC, is getting fans up to speed on the year so far with three hours of programing this weekend.
The action kicks off Saturday at 5 p.m. EST when NBC airs the Throwdown at the UP from Bark River (Mich.) International Raceway. Father’s Day weekend in Bark River is always a good time and the Monster camp represented by Johnny Greaves and CJ Greaves and the Traxxas team of Jeff Kincaid and Keegan Kincaid, a father-son tandem is a strong possibility.
Starting Sunday at 6:30 p.m. EST, viewers will be treated to TORC racing at The Big House in Crandon, Wis. The first hour focuses on the Battle at the Big House, where Johnny Greaves and Traxxas driver Mark Jenkins battled for the lead throughout the race. It was also a race for the underdog as Nitto Tires driver, Ross Hoek, continued his quest his first-ever PRO 4 podium finish. In the PRO Light class, a field of 20+ trucks raced all out all weekend with everything left on the track, including sheet metal.
At 7:30, NBC Sports airs the Crandon Cup (Chairman’s Cup), an all-star-like race featuring both the PRO 2 and PRO 4 racers on the same track at the same time with all the drama and action one would expect from seeing some of the best off-road trucks in the world together.
