January 6, 2014



OFF-ROAD RACING BRINGS NEW HEAD-TO-HEAD CHALLENGE TO THE SLOPES
Eight 900-Horsepower Trucks to Race on Ski Slope as Red Bull Frozen Rush Returns to the Northeast  

WHAT: An off-road truck race like no other, Red Bull Frozen Rush will bring eight 900-horsepower Pro4 trucks and their experienced professional drivers to the slopes of Maine's renowned Sunday River Resort for a head-to-head race on the steep and unpredictable snowy terrain.   Conquering the slopes doesn't come without its set of technical challenges. Each racing truck has to be specifically modified in order to adapt to the harsh weather conditions. One-of-a-kind spiked and specially designed large Mud-Terrain tires from BFGoodrich's Research and Development team will arm all eight veteran motorsports racers as they climb the nearly mile-long course, racing head-to-head and ascending 550 vertical feet before returning again to the base of the hill.

WHO: Eight professional off-road racers, who combined have decades of experience racing on different type of terrain including sand, dirt, mud, gravel, and even grass but never snow!  The eight participating drivers are some of the top talent in off-road racing, and include:  Ricky Johnson, Bryce Menzies, Greg Adler, Johnny Greaves, Scott Douglas, Rob MacCachren, Carl Renezeder and Todd Le Duc.

WHEN:  Friday, January 10, 2014 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM *Pit Tours and Driver Interviews available by request*

WHERE:  Sunday River Resort, 15 South Ridge Road Newry, ME 04261
