For Immediate Release:

TRAXXAS steps up big in PRO-LIGHT with a $10,000 per weekend purse for the remaining two races at Perris and Las Vegas Motor speedway.

The TRAXXAS PRO LIGHT division is where the future heroes of Short Course are made and Traxxas is recognizing the drivers with an additional $10,000 in TRAXXAS PRO LIGHT cash for every remaining weekend of the Traxxas TORC Truck Series. For each round of TRAXXAS PRO LIGHT racing, $5,000 in additional Traxxas cash combines with the $3500 TORC payout for a total of $8500. The payout is divided amongst the top ten finishers with the top spot on the podium receiving $2500 in cash!

Traxxas owner and Pro 4X4 driver Mike Jenkins teamed up with TORC principles Mitch Covington and Ricky Johnson to put this special award in place. Ricky Johnson stated “The enthusiasm for Pro Light keeps building and having the additional support from Traxxas just makes it even more exciting. I’m most pleased that the payout increases through 10 places and not just the top finishers. It’s a generous show of support for this dedicated group of racers.” Traxxas owner and Pro 4X4 driver Mike Jenkins said “Pro Light is a driver’s class, and the racing action is always fiercely competitive. It is not about extreme power, it's about carrying big speed through the corners and maintaining momentum. It's a fast class, which makes you pay for your mistakes. We are proud to support the growth in Pro Light and inject this extra cash incentive to help the teams.” The total TRAXXAS PRO LIGHT division payout is now $17,000 per weekend!

TRAXXAS PRO LITE payout is as follow:
1st:$2,500 2nd $1,500 3rd $1,000 4th $800 5th $700 6th $600 7th $500 8th $400 9th $300 10th $200
Total: $8,500

Do you have what it takes to win? Get to Perris September 25th – 27th for TORC rounds 13 and 14 and a chance to win your share of $10,000 in Traxxas Pro Light Cash. Then, head to Las Vegas for The Traxxas TORC Series Championship season finale October 23rd -25th.


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.

Can't forget to say....


Thanks for stepping up your support for the PRO-LIGHT class TRAXXAS! That's just more proof that TRAXXIS is advancing OUR sport! They could have taken the cheaper route, and just been a product sponsor that backs a few teams.... Stuff like this is what made us buy a TRAXXAS Slash!
