Jessie Johnson Returns to TORC to Tackle Hometown Track

August 18, 2016

Jessie Johnson will return to the TORC Off Road Racing Series for the Showdown in Charlotte Off Road race on August 19th and 20th at the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Johnson will take the drivers seat in the #15 Jeld-Wen Windows & Doors PRO Light entry, with additional support from Honda Cars of Rock Hill. The team operates out of their Troutman, North Carolina based race shop, just a short drive from the track. Johnson is looking forward making a return to racing after running a part time schedule this year.

“I’m excited to get back in the truck and carry along some great new sponsors with Jeld-Wen Windows & Doors and Honda Cars of Rock Hill,” said Johnson.  “Racing is what we do, it’s what we love, it’s who we are as a family and when we aren’t racing it just doesn’t feel right.  We just couldn’t pass up the hometown event.  I can’t wait to get out there this weekend and see what we can do.”

The TORC Off Road Racing Series Showdown in Charlotte takes place at the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway with Round 11 on Friday August 19th and Round 12 Saturday August 20th.  The event will showcase several classes of racing.  For those who have never been to a short-course off road race, it’s described as Motocross, NASCAR, Sports Cars and MMA Fighting mixed in a blender that feeds fans some of the most exciting and intense racing in the world.
