TORC 2010: US-TORC-Series announces big event at Metrolina

Officials of The Traxxas TORC Series Presented by AMSOIL announced today that it will bring its "kick-ass" brand of off-road truck racing to the East Coast in 2010 with a two-day event at the new Metrolina Speed and Sports Center in Charlotte, NC. The inaugural dirt event at the fabled speedway will be held May 15th and 16th and feature the biggest names in off-road racing and be televised nationally.

"We are very proud to kick things off and be a part of the re-birth of the Metrolina Speed and Sports Center and bring our extreme form of racing to the fans in Charlotte, stated Ricky Johnson. "We will be working hard with John and his team at Metrolina to design an event that rocks the house with our East Coast debut and I know our drivers will continue to bring the best show in racing today."

Metrolina’s racing history dates back over forty years and is perhaps most famous as the track where Dale Earnhardt won his first race on asphalt.

"We are extremely excited to have The Traxxas TORC Series as our debut event to launch our "Metrolina Makeover" project", stated Simon Weber, president and CEO of Speedway Investment Group. "The excitement that the TORC Series will bring is an excellent way to get the Charlotte fans back out to Metrolina".

The Traxxas TORC Series- The Off Road Championship, presented by AMSOIL is the world’s premier short course off road series. TORC drivers push the limits with 900 horsepower, action-packed fender pounding on challenging natural terrain racetracks. For more information on TORC please visit [ ].
