TORC races to pause for vets
14 Jun 2017
Decorated Navy SEAL, actor and author Derrick Van Orden will be an honorary grand marshal at this weekend’s festivities June 11-12 at ERX Motor Park in Elk River.
The Off-Road Championship, known as TORC, presented by AMSOIL, is back at ERX for the second time.
The ERX Motor Park has grown again. Since the TORC Series made its debut at ERX Motor Park last summer, the facility has grownto 400 acres accompanied by a host of improvements.
While Van Orden will deliver the official “start your engines” order to drivers on Sunday, he will also have a more poignant role as he presents the wife and son of Marine Sgt. Christopher Jacobs, who lost his life during a training exercise in 2011.
Van Orden will present a United States flag to Brittany Jacobs and son Christian in appreciation for his honorable and faithful service.
