TREC With Us, Badlands Comp.

Just passing on info.
Jeff



TREC With Us
Racing to the Next Level!
Welcome to Trec With Us!

The people behind Paragon Adventure Park, NEUROC and Badlands Off Road Park are excited to announce a new off road racing series!

Throughout this decade the four wheeling enthusiasts combined the love of trail riding with the element of competition to create “Rock Crawling.” This new sport generated a lot of excitement and an overwhelming fan base. Eventually Rock Crawling fans wanted even more and the Rock Crawlers rose to the occasion with the creation of “Rock Racing.” However, Rock Crawlers and Rock Racers are left yearning for the stardom of other professional motorsports drivers and the sport is still searching for its niche in the mainstream of motorsports.




Proud to Announce . . . TREC!

TREC will end this dilemma. TREC IS THAT NICHE!


TREC is Trail Racing Endurance Circuit a.k.a. FOOT TO THE FLOOR - AVOID THAT TREE - FLY THROUGH THE AIR - KEEP IT ON AT LEAST TWO WHEELS RACE!



TREC transforms the average Saturday trail ride (traveling less than five miles per hour) to a race over the mountains, through the woods and across the awesome dunes of Badlands Off Road Park at redline speeds!



TREC is about endurance not the difficulty of an obstacle. A 12+ mile course has been designed at the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, IN. This course will encompass everything a normal slow trail ride has such as rocks, hills, mud, sand etc. but now speed has been incorporated into the competition! The Badlands has the unique ability to offer a small scale desert-style race and dense woods that will maximize the thrill and offer even more excitement!



TREC will have four evening races at The Badlands Off-Road Park. The races will last approximately two hours and take place after the Park closes. TREC will have multiple vehicles at one time starting in staged starts and racers will have two classes to choose from to accommodate different vehicles.



As Fall approaches the races will drive into the moonlight and the fourth and final event of the season will include the most exhilarating element – darkness!



TREC will be open to adapted full body trail vehicles and buggy type vehicles with an affordable entry fee. Specific information on classes and registration can soon be found on www.TRECwithus.com.

yeah, I'd race one for 100 bucks. But def not 500 to run it. It's enough time/$ to get a rig prepped and hauled down there.

Finally! Something I can really run mine through it's paces on. I'm shortening mine up just a little for a better turning radius, but I'm keeping the same over-all design and capibility as last year. This sounds like a total BLAST!!!
