2016 TORC/MORR Banquet

Appleton, Wisc. (January 27, 2017) - The 2016 TORC Sportsman Banquet presented by MORR saw over 460 racers, supporters, and fans attend the festivities as the top performers in each class were honored with a substantial year end payout as the MORR Fundraiser and raffle kept the party lasting well into the night. Along with the evening banquet, an overflow crowd assembled earlier in the day to hear the latest news in regards to the 2017 race season. Needless to say, it was a very busy day.


The General Meeting discussed the re-establishment of Classix, Stock Truck, and Formula 4x4 as Grassroots classes competing only at the Crandon and Bark River rounds of racing. There were slight rule changes on the technical side in a few classes which are reflected in the 2017 version of the Sportsman rulebook. (Available online at www.midwest-offroadracing.com).

The atrium of the Paper Valley Radisson saw one of the Light Buggy racers from Buth Racing on display as two of the latest editions of the Short-Course Kids Karts from Ehren Precision Speed Products. The hallway also saw product displays from Londerville Steel, Rod End Supply, and One Off Graphics.

Once dinner was served, the top drivers in each class were introduced with each Champion taking the opportunity to talk about the race season and thank their supporters.

Throughout the evening Crandon International Off-Road Raceway and Bark River International Off-Road Raceway sponsored the beer, ERX-Elk River Action Track sponsored the Hot Chocolate Bar, and AMSOIL supported the late night pizza party.





The MORR Fundraiser and Raffle saw an incredible number of items donated to raise money for the MORR Assistance fund and the Drivers' Point fund. MORR thanks everyone that brought donations as well as everyone that participated in the Fundraiser.

Special thanks goes out to Nancy Vanden Heuvel for coordinating the banquet, Amy Demeny for taking care of banquet reservations and payments, Kim Kinner for organizing the fundraiser portion of the evening, as well as Nancy Behnke and Arlene Bialaczynski for pitching in where ever needed.



Even after the all the prizes were awarded and the pizza was served, the MORR party was still going strong proving that Sportsman off-road racing in the Midwest is more than just racing, it's also about having a great time with family and friends.

Great info...sorry to see that the Classix, stock truck, and the Formula 4x4 guys won't be at every round.

This might explain why, I found a ready to race Formula 4x4, with all but new body, on RacingJunk for sale.

MORR Announces Presenting Sponsors - Allstar Performance and Optima Batteries
Motor State Distributing Builds Partnership Through Vendors

Abrams, Wisc. (March 6, 2017) - Midwest-Off-Road Racing (MORR) is proud to announce the presenting sponsor for the 2017 calendar year. Motor State Distributing will support the Sportsman group with two of its vendors, Allstar Performance and Optima Batteries. This is the first presenting sponsor for MORR since its inception in 2010.



The added support came after evaluating Motor State's relationship with MORR. Since MORR's inception, Motor State has used the MORR Contingency Program to increase its presence in the off-road community. Last year the performance wholesale distributor added Allstar Performance support to the non-points MORR Sportsman event at Hartford Speedway in southwest Michigan. Soon after the conclusion of the most recent race season, discussion between Motor State, MORR and TORC led to the MORR Presenting Sponsor title.

"Motor State distributes over 630 vendor lines throughout the motorsports and performance marketplace," noted marketing manager Scott Wahlstrom. "Associating two of our vendors to the MORR group will not only expand our exposure in the off-road community in the Midwest, but throughout North America."

Much of the financial support from the MORR presenting sponsor agreement will be added the Sportsman racer payout at the Buchanan, Michigan TORC event. The two days of racing at Red Bud MX begins on August 12. The TORC event "The Rumble at Red Bud" will also see Allstar Performance and Optima Batteries designated at the title sponsors of the weekend's Sportsman race program.











Allstar Performance will continue for the sixth consecutive season as a MORR Contingency Sponsor for the 2017 TORC Sportsman race season.

Over one hundred fifty Sportsman competitors create Midwest Off-Road Racing and will race alongside the TORC PRO classes throughout the seven weekends of racing.
