Ram Truck, Mopar Boost Sponsorship Presence in The Off-Road Championship Series

The Off-Road Championship Series starts in May, and viewers will see plenty of new Ram Truck and Mopar sponsorship and branding in this year's series.
As part of Ram Truck and Mopar's sponsorship plans, Ram will become the official vehicle of TORC, and a Mopar Ram Runner will be the official pace vehicle of the series. Fans will also have the opportunity to ride along in an off-road Ram truck.

Two teams and five drivers have earned new corporate sponsors.
Traxxas Racing is the first team, consisting of Rob MacCachren and Samuel Hubinette. MacCachren, an off-road racing veteran, is no stranger to competition and is being sponsored by Ram Truck on his No. 21 Pro 2 Ram. Hubinette is a two-time Formula Drift champion and will have his No. 77 Pro Light Ram sponsored by Ram Truck and Mopar.
The second team is Menzies Motorsports. Ricky Johnson will feature associate sponsorship on his No. 48 Pro 4 Ram from Ram Truck and Mopar. Bryce Menzies will have the same sponsorship package on his No. 7 Pro 2 Ram. Luke Johnson won't break the trend on his currently unnumbered Pro Light Ram.
"I couldn't be more proud to have Ram partnering with these great off-road drivers, championship-caliber teams and the TORC series itself," said Fred Diaz, president and CEO of the Ram Truck brand. "Off-road racers and fans are extremely passionate about their trucks just like we are. This partnership is a perfect fit for us to connect and share the passion in a fun and exciting way."
