TORC Announces Traxxas Combine At Primm On March 21-25

The inaugural TRAXXAS Combine, to be held March 21-25 in Primm, Nevada, will offer Pro Off-Road teams five days of open testing at one of the most iconic off-road tracks in short course racing.

A special event open to all pro teams will be held during the popular Mint 400 desert race weekend in Las Vegas*.

The testing session will be highlighted with a special "money" race for attending teams, with the winner taking home a very special prize: the Combine Cup.
 
"The idea of the TRAXXAS Combine has been in the works for the last two years, as many teams are looking to test new trucks, drivers, and new setups worked on over the winter months. We felt that a fun, casual event at a great race course, combined in a rich off-road surrounding that the Mint desert race provides would be a great way to shake off the winter blues. Throw in some cash and bragging rights such as the new Combine Cup, it should be a fun and entertaining event for all," stated Kevin Miller, CEO of USAC Racing.

Along with a great money payout, the Combine Cup will benefit the top finishers with guaranteed top starting positions in one of the biggest paying Cup races on the TORC Schedule later in the season.
 
The Traxxas Combine race(s) will be held on Friday, March 22, to allow off-road enthusiasts attending the Mint 400 desert race in the Las Vegas area over the weekend to stop by the Primm short track and take in some short-course action and kick tires with friends.

The Primm grounds will be open for spectators all weekend with free entry, as well as all teams and crew.

As a means to keep costs down for this special event, tire companies will not be allowed to bring in support trailers. There is no limit on tires or servicing in team areas.
