Challenging foes to a race is a time-honored way to reinforce social status, demonstrate physical prowess, and avoid sitting in the back seat. Get your checkered flag ready with today's Groupon: for $10, you get an admission ticket for one adult to the Traxxas TORC Off-Road Championship Series' events on Friday, July 22, or Saturday, July 23, at Charlotte Motor Speedway (a $20 value). Gates open at 3 p.m. each day, with opening ceremonies kicking off at 7 p.m.
Traxxas TORC hosts competitions for souped-up road-chomping machines on complex natural terrain. Each day of the two-day championship boasts multiple races on a track carved out of the naturally rugged landscape and the broken chassis of fallen foes. From the nearby spectator hills, witness the dune-jumping, bumper-crunching, and dirt-flinging of Traxxas Pro Light Trucks, AmSoil Pro 2WD trucks, and Pro 4x4 trucks, or parallel-park your way into the action during the R/C demonstrations on the racetrack straightaway. For an additional fee, you can set up camp on-site at the Tom Johnson Camping Center Racing Resort Campground, an ideal setting for telling haunted motorcycle stories while roasting smart-car kebabs over the campfire. To keep tykes transfixed, children 12 and under can get into the event for $10.
