ABOUT VIRGINIA INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY


Mike Evock at Racing for Heroes with the approval of VIR has been working tirelessly the last 2 months on building 2 new amazing tracks for us to run on, Rally Track and Shooters Track.

Recently chosen as one of Car and Driver Magazine’s top six road courses in the nation, Virginia International Raceway is a multi-purpose road course offering professional and amateur auto and motorcycle racing, as well as a wide range of track events. Each year, VIR draws tens of thousands of spectators for some of the best road racing in the country. Its uphill Esses and sharp elevation changes not only make it a fan and driver favorite but have also established it as a prominent testing facility for the automotive industry.

While racing is the heart of VIR, the expansive 1,300-acre property located at the Virginia-North Carolina border is so much more. America’s first true “motorsport resort,” it’s an entire vacation destination with a number of onsite hotel and lodging options. Within the property’s rolling hills and miles of lush forest, guests can enjoy unique amenities such as the exclusive Driver’s Club, karting, off-road racing, skeet shooting, pistol, and rifle ranges, skidpad, dining options more.

Rally track will be closed for Competition. Competition is open to anyone who would like to participate. There will be a cash prize for 1st place and trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A DOT APPROVED HELMET BE SURE TO BRING ONE

This will be a one lap knockout competition. We will put two trucks at a time on the track starting on opposite sides running in the same direction. The first one to cross their start line wins that round and will move on to round two.

The truck picks will be done by random drawing. Drivers will blind pick a token. Each token will have a match so you will be racing the driver who drew the same number as you. For example if you draw a number 2 you will be racing whoever also draws a number 2.

All winners from the first round will pick tokens again for round two line up. This will continue until there is one winner.

PHOTOGRAPHY


We will have a team of photographers out there on both tracks all day Saturday working hard to capture you at your best. Photo packages are included with registration and will be provided on FB as well as via dropbox link by request.


SWAP MEET


We have been asked by quite a few people whether we would allow them to sell used parts at the event. Because of the apparent high demand for this we have decided to open a “swap meet” area next to the TORR tent. So, if you have any spare parts laying around you would like to try to sell feel free to bring them.

And just so you don’t miss any run time, we will have a TORR team member watching over your items and collecting holding your money for you. Please make sure that anything you do bring has your requested price and your contact info clearly marked on each piece.
