The Off-Road Championship (TORC)
Toyota competed in its 15th season of off-road racing in 2012. After the demise of the CORR series in 2008, a new professional, televised series was established for short-course racing – TORC (The Off-Road Championship).
In the PRO 4x4 class, Toyota Tundra drivers won back-to-back championships with Johnny Greaves winning in 2010 and Rick Huseman capturing his first professional Driver’s Championship in 2009. Greaves earned three wins in 2012, finishing third overall.
In PRO Light, C.J. Greaves debuted in a new PRO 2WD truck in 2012 and won two races, once on the same day his father won in Bark River, and he took his first podium win. He placed third overall this past season with one win. He also placed fourth in the Pro 2WD class in 2012, with two victories. Jeff Kincaid (Tacoma) recorded six victories en route to his seventh Driver’s Championship in 2009. Additionally, Toyota took the 2009 Manufacturer’s Championship in this division. In the Super Buggy class, Toyota-powered driver CJ Greaves (Johnny Greaves’ son) won the championship in both 2010 and 2011. Shawn Morris and Tim Lemons finished first and second in the championship point standings in 2009.
Rick Huseman completely dominated the 2010 season with 10 wins and 13 podiums in 15 rounds of racing and taking the championship in the process. He started the 2011 season strong, winning the first 4 rounds and capturing six wins overall, earning 9 podiums in 12 rounds of racing.
Eric Barron debuted a brand-new Pro 4 Unlimited truck in 2012 winning three races in a row in the process. He returns in 2013 with sights on the championship.
