After several years of designing, refining, and fabricating his very unique ALL-WHEEL DRIVE Super Buggy, John Frana dominated the competition at Bark River I. The Illinois based team owner and driver is looking to relive that experience this coming weekend as the Traxxas TORC Series presented by AMSOIL returns to the upper peninsula of Michigan.
“The win was definitely gratifying,” remarked John Frana. “Now we need to show everyone we can back it up.” After his first win of his career, and nearly repeating the feat the following day at Bark River, the Oshkosh event wasn’t as kind to Frana.
“The Oshkosh track was really cool for the fans, but the rough “unrhythm” section made our buggy a handful to drive,” noted Frana.
The team is looking for a strong finish to the TORC Super Buggy Sportsman season as Bark River and Crandon are tracks that give the BrandName Discount Drug Card RCV Performance Products AWD Honda powered Super Buggy an advantage over the rest of the competition.
The added drive of the front wheels can really get John through the corners, especially the sweeping turns and curves of the Bark River layout,” noted crew chief Ryan Drummond.

About the Frana Vehicles AWD Super Buggy
Frana’s buggy represents a new era in open wheel off-road race vehicle design. In the spirit of the wide open Super Buggy rules (often referred to as the Formula One of off road racing), Frana designed and built this radically different tube frame buggy, utilizing a mid engine mounted Honda 1600cc engine, delivering the power through a five speed sequential shifted transmission designed and built by Loves Park, Illinois based Frana Vehicles franavehicles.com. Many of the chassis components, including the control arms, spindles, wheel hubs, bumpers, tie rod ends, shocks, and brake components are interchangeable front to back, left to right. Virtually the entire suspension, frame and running gear was designed and built by Frana, with custom CV joints and drive shafts manufactured by RCV Performance Products www.rcvperformance.com
