TORC: The Off-Road Championship Presented by AMSOIL, the nation’s premiere short-course, off-road racing series, has announced a total purse fund of $550,000 at stake for drivers in the 2014 TORC season.
This season’s fund is the highest to date and represents an increase of nearly $100,000 over last season. Winnings will be awarded to top contenders in the TORC PRO 4, PRO 2 and PRO Light classes as well as for Top Qualifier, Competition Caution Leader, Spring Cup and AMSOIL Cup winners. For example, the PRO Light class awards a payout of nearly $27,000 per event.
“We are very excited to be able to boost our purse fund for the 2014 TORC season,” said TORC President BJ Birtwell. “Not only do we expect this added incentive to spur even higher levels of competition, but also provide resources back to the teams for continued investment in their programs.”
The growth in purse funding is among several significant recent announcements from TORC, which have included numerous high-visibility Official Series Partners, a multi year TV distribution deal with NBC Sports, and a partnership with Youtube’s largest automotive channel for Live Streaming of every round of racing in 2014.
