The Red Bull Signature Series will have one of its marquee events this weekend, the Red Bull Frozen Rush featuring 900-horsepower Pro4 trucks.

The event will be live streamed on Red Bull TV on January 9th at 12:30 pm via the Red Bull TV player at RedBull.com/frozenrush. As part of the series, a full length broadcast of Red Bull Frozen Rush airs Sunday, March 1 at 2:00 pm ET on NBC Sports.

Qualifying occurs this Thursday and the race itself runs on Friday from the Sunday River Ski Resort, a few hours north of Boston in Sunday River, Maine.

Ricky Johnson took the win a year ago, in the event featuring snow rather than the normal dirt, sand and gravel tracks that most off-road truck racers conquer.

“Winning the title last year was amazing, especially after going head to head with the best in the business.  It could have been anyone’s day, but I’m glad it was mine,” Johnson said in a release. “This year won’t be any easier.  Everyone wants that title now and like I said to Johnny (Greaves) last year… My a** is here, come kick it.”

Johnson will race against event veterans Bryce Menzies, Todd LeDuc, Johnny Greaves, Scott Douglas, Rob MacCachren and Carl Renezeder.

Additionally, decorated freestyle motocross rider turned off-road champion, Brian Deegan, young up-and-comer RJ Anderson and seasoned professional Chad Hord are newcomers to the event this year.

USAC will sanction the event; BFGoodrich will provide studded, specially designed Mud-Terrain tires.
