TORC season begins at The Dirt Track this Friday and Saturday (April 24-25)

FORT WORTH, Tex. (April 23, 2015) - The high-flying action of short-course off road truck racing hits The Dirt Track at Texas Motor Speedway for a season opening doubleheader this weekend for TORC: The Off-Road Championship, presented by AMSOIL. Races take place this Friday and Saturday evening, with gates opening at 6 p.m. and opening ceremonies at 7:30 p.m. each night.

"We're excited to open our national championship season at the Dirt Track at Texas Motor Speedway," said TORC series president BJ Birtwell. "This is the perfect venue for our kind of fender-to-fender, no mercy, no surrender truck racing action."

The TORC season opener promises the best truck racers in the world fighting it out in 900 hp machines on a track built for action with whoops, big jumps and steeply banked turns. Entry to the race is offered at $5 for active and retired military personnel who present a valid military ID at the ticket window. Regular tickets are just $20 at the gate or $15 if purchased in advance online at www.torcseries.com/tickets.

In addition to opening the 2015 championship season this weekend, the series and its partners will be racing in support of the upcoming Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit with a special series of TORC events.

Back-to-back NASCAR Truck Series champion Matt Crafton makes a guest appearance in the series to race the Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit PRO 4WD truck, sponsored by KMC Wheels and AMSOIL. He won the NASCAR Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway last summer.

"To drive the Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit PRO 4WD truck for Chris Kyle is an honor," said Crafton. "I met Chris' parents Wayne and Deby today and they are an amazing family. I'm grateful for the opportunity to support them in raising funds for a cause Chris cared so much about." 

 In addition to the celebrity race entry, Chris' father Wayne Kyle will be the Grand Marshal. A Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit booth at the track will give fans an opportunity to donate to the foundation.

"It's fantastic," said Wayne Kyle on Thursday. "If you know much about veterans, you know they're race fans and being here really fits what we're working to do."


The Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit is raising funds for the Guardian for Heroes Foundation -- a charity that supports veterans with disabilities, Gold Star families and those suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder. Kyle was a decorated U.S. Navy SEAL and the subject of the Oscar nominated film American Sniper. He died in 2013. This year's benefit, organized by his family, is the second held in his memory.

Grant Cardone on The Steve Harvey Show

      Grant hired our firm in 2011 to help him understand and grow his social media reach exponentially. We have worked with Grant on growing his social media engagement by the hundreds of thousands over the past five years. We directly consulted and set up Grant on his first Live internet broadcast on Ustream in 2011. When then consulted Grant on the development of the Cardone Zone on YouTube Live in 2012.

      Yesterday Grant made an appearance on the Steve Harvey Show as a business expert for a segment called The Next Success.


Facebook Mentions #GameChanger. Finally the epic shift in social media we predicted in 2007 is coming to everyone.

Immediately I went to see his live feed. He was life casting his life 24 /7 and getting massive attention. I was intrigued when he stated the mission of his startup was to bring a social network that anyone could stream live on and have live interactions with viewers via chat. This was my light bulb moment and Dot TV Media Services was born.

   We have now come almost full circle. Facebook Live is definetly not something new. Our firm has been producing Facebook Live broadcasts since 2010.  Periscope, Meerkat and now Facebook Mentions have dumbified producing a good live broadcasting stream down to an enjoyable app which you can broadcast, watch, engage and interact on social media with a few simple screen taps. This dumbification was the missing link. Before these apps you had to use a computer and at least a webcam to broad…
