TORC: The Off-Road Championship, the nation’s premiere short-course, off-road racing series, has announced that Wahoo’s Fish Taco will provide exciting promotional support for the series’ season opener on April 5-6, 2014, at Primm Off Road Raceway in Primm, Nev.

The Wahoo’s involvement in the upcoming “Duel in the Desert” is the company’s first foray with the TORC series. With deep roots in action sports, Wahoo’s brings a passionate community that is a perfect match for the action-packed world of short-course, off-road racing.

“With nearly 1 million customers walking through these participating Wahoo’s locations during the promotional period, this partnership provides TORC with an incredible opportunity to raise awareness for our event and our sponsors,” said TORC President BJ Birtwell. “Wahoo’s customers typically have an affinity for action sports culture and outdoor sports. We believe they’ll appreciate the opportunity to experience 900-horsepower TORC Trucks ripping up a revitalized track at Primm Valley Off Road Raceway.”

Beginning March 1, all Wahoo’s Fish Taco locations in Southern California and Nevada will offer tickets to the event simply with the purchase of a Monster Energy drink. Presentation of both the can for recycling and the ticket will gain free entry into the event.

In addition, a special Wahoo’s VIP sweepstakes will award two winners with VIP Trackside Seating including full hospitality and catering, hotel accommodations, transportation to the event, and a once-in-a-lifetime ride around the track in a TORC PRO 2 race truck. Fans can enter at the counter of all participating Wahoo’s locations.

“TORC is a great fit for us,” commented Wing Liam, Co-Founder of Wahoo’s Fish Taco. “Our customers love participating in and watching sports that push athletes to the very edge. TORC racing certainly fits that bill, and we’re thrilled to support it. We’re also excited to be catering the drivers, crews and VIPs at the event with delicious Wahoo’s food.”

TORC: The Off-Road Championship will hold seven events across the United States this year, with NBC Sports providing television coverage and a behind-the-scenes docu-reality series.
