In Episode Four of TORC Young Guns brought to you by AMSOIL, short course racing returns to RedBud MX for the first time since 2013. The track known for the largest national motocross race has hosted several TORC Series races in the past, but this year’s event will play out on a brand-new course. With the track being finished just days before the green flag drops, racers will be on a level playing field as they take on the loamy Michigan dirt.

PRO Light Young Gun Cam Reimers has raced at RedBud as much as any driver in TORC, having competed in the national ATV circuit for several seasons. He also scored his first TORC PRO Light podium at the Buchanan track back in 2013. Reimers is hoping his past RedBud experience will give him the boost needed to pick up his first win of 2017.


Meanwhile, the newly-rekindled rivalry between Luke Johnson and Andrew Carlson continues to pick up steam. Carlson once again stands between Johnson and the lead in the hotly-competitive PRO 2 division. The tight course means that a pass will require contact, and things are sure to get tense.   

The rough and bumpy RedBud track is sure to be a brutal proving grounds for drivers and mechanics alike. With trucks being pushed to their breaking point, Keegan Kincaid knows if he can keep everything together he may have a shot at his first win in his new PRO 4. Can Kincaid put the stinging disappointment of Bark River behind him, or will the Greaves Duo continue their dominance in TORC’s premier class?
