Traxxas TORC hosts competitions for souped-up road-chomping machines on complex, natural terrain. Each day of the two-day Red Bud MX championship boasts more than 10 different races on a mile-long track carved out of the naturally rugged landscape and the broken chassis of fallen foes. From the nearby spectator hill, witness the dune jumping, bumper crunching, and dirt flinging of 1600 Light Buggys, Pro 4x4 trucks, and the R/C Pro driver challenge, or parallel park your way into the action during live demonstrations. For an additional fee, you can set up camp on site, an ideal setting for telling haunted motorcycle stories while roasting Smart-car kebabs over the campfire.
