take to the driver’s stand in the Pro Driver R/C Race and compete against Pro Short Course racing’s elite with Traxxas Slash trucks. This event is a favorite for fans as they watch the drivers duke it out with each other on the R/C track with equally prepared stock trucks. It’s a battle of driving skill and strategy as rivalries fought on the full-size track make their way to the R/C track as well. The R/C Pro Driver Race is immediately followed by an autograph session where fans can meet the drivers, including Kyle in person. The R/C Pro Driver Race begins at 6PM on Wed, August 25th.
In addition to teaming with Kyle Busch to promote short-course racing, Traxxas is also supporting Kyle in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. After racing the TORC series mid-week, Kyle will strap into a NASCAR truck for Friday’s speedway race. His truck will be fully outfitted with Traxxas racing livery, introducing fans to The Fastest Name in Radio Control. Traxxas will also sponsor Kyle in two additional NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events: Talladega on October 30, and Homestead on November 19.
Race fans who can’t make it to Chicago can watch Kyle Busch make his TORC debut on Discovery HD Theater, which will premier the first of 26 episodes of “The Off-Road Championship” on September 2. NASCAR fans can see Kyle behind the wheel of his Traxxas “Nastruck” in Chicago on Speed, August 27 at 9pm eastern. The race will be re-broadcast August 29 at 12am, and August 30 at 12:30pm.
