TORC: The Off-Road Championship Presented by AMSOIL has announced the addition of Kart and P1K (UTV) classes to its national event schedule beginning with the season opener in Primm, Nev., April 5-6, 2014.

The TORC Kart class will consist of junior karts and 450 karts while the P1K class will be reserved for 1000cc UTVs. Each class will compete for a national championship and race the same seven-event schedule as the PRO Light, PRO 2 and PRO 4 classes over the course of the 2014 season. Entries in each class must be USAC-licensed, with a $125 entry fee for the karts and a $150 entry fee for the UTVs.

“Both karts and UTV’s have exploded in popularity and participation,” says TORC President BJ Birtwell. “These competitors are the next generation of PRO TORC racers and we’re glad to welcome them into the TORC series to compete for a national championship in their respective classes.”
