DANA POINT, Calif. (Feb. 5, 2014) — Former Indy Lights and endurance racer Arie Luyendyk Jr. is returning to compete in the 2014 TORC (The Off-Road Championship) short-course, off-road racing series, which has its season opener April 5-6 in Primm, Nev.
Mr. Luyendyk, star from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" reality TV shows, will be racing in the #25 PRO-2 truck with Aero Motorsports and his newly announced title sponsor, engine cleaning and degreasing product Gunk, a Radiator Specialty Co. brand. After making the switch to off-road racing from road racing, Mr. Luyendyk finished the 2013 TORC season with fourth- and sixth-place finishes for the team.
"I can't express how excited I am to climb back into a truck and compete in my first full season of TORC," he said. "This year will be exciting because it's my first taste of the 900+ Horsepower PRO-2 truck. I'm definitely up for the challenge."
