Red Bull Frozen Rush
February 15, 2013
Times: Runs will be made at 10am, 12 noon and 2pm.
For the first time ever, a short course off-road Pro4 racing truck will take to the snow in Vermont’s Green Mountains to battle gravity and the elements as part of Red Bull Frozen Rush. The four-wheel drive vehicle, designed to handle just about anything a summertime off-road speedway can throw at it, will face an onslaught of new challenges when it enters winter’s frozen playground. Soft snow, steep terrain, ice and freezing temperatures is a recipe for disaster in any vehicle, but that won’t slow down champion off-road racer, Ricky Johnson. Armed with a set of custom spiked and specially designed tires from BFGoodrich’s Research and Development team, Ricky will wager his skills, experience, and even his truck’s capabilities as he attempts to conquer the slopes.
Veteran course builders, Snow Park Technologies, will join forces with Mount Snow’s operations team to design a one-of-a-kind hillcross course that will surely put Ricky and his truck to the ultimate test. When completed, Red Bull Frozen Rush will warrant a different perspective of weather restrictions and future opportunities for motorsports.
Two-time TORC Series Champion and Red Bull athlete, Ricky Johnson. After becoming one of the most honored Motocross and Supercross athletes of all time, Ricky has spent the latter part of his career on four wheels; training and driving in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck series before taking it back to the dirt to dominate off-road truck racing.
The course will touch on the following Mount Snow trails: Charlie’s Chase, Lower Exhibition, Yard Sale and Ego Alley.
