Hoek’s Prepared for Red Bud!

Holland, MI (May 23, 2012) – After a great weekend of racing at the opening event in Charlotte last month, Ross Hoek is well prepared for whatever the competition as well the natural terrain layout of the track at Red Bud MX has to offer. Thanks to a productive on-track test session the #21 Ignite Racing Fuels, Venom Energy, Herculiner, Allstar Performance, Pro-Light is tuned and ready for the TORC series’ second visit to the iconic motocross venue.  
Last year, the inaugural TORC Series Red Bud event experienced horrific weather conditions as heavy rain fell throughout the area preventing track designers from fining tuning the brand new one mile long layout. For 2012, the TORC track crew came to Red Bud a week early to work with the track owners to create a more wide open layout allowing the PRO trucks to use all their horsepower when competing for the win.
With over a month between race weekends, RHM team had plenty of time to go testing the Pro Light as well as make final preparations for the team’s new Sportsman Light Buggy entry. The orange VW powered buggy will be driven by team members throughout the season. Not only will the team have fun with the Light Buggy, but the time on the track will give the crew members a better insight into what the race vehicles and driver must cope with during a race.
“The competition in the PRO-Light class this year is even tougher than last year as everyone is stepping up their program,” remarked Hoek. “I’ll have quite a few fans from my hometown coming to Red Bud and I don’t want to disappoint. I believe we have really done our homework this year. Look for the #21 Ignite Racing Fuels, Venom Energy, Herculiner, and Allstar Performance Ford to be a consistent front runner throughout the season.”
