Mooresville, Oct. 30, 2012: Menzies Motorsports put on a dominating show at Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, CA on Saturday, September 29th. Drivers Ricky Johnson and Bryce Menzies each scored wins and claimed two more TORC (The Off-Road Championship) Series Championships for the team.

Johnson won all three PRO 4 races over the weekend including the Rick Huseman Memorial Cup race, capping off his season in Victory Lane. The Championship marks Johnson's second in two years and third overall with his Mopar and Ram Truck powered by Roush Yates Engines and Kroyer Engines.

"It was an awesome day," said Johnson. "To cap off the year with bookends is pretty amazing. We started off at Charlotte winning twice and to come back to my home state of California and win twice, it is very special. To win another championship is just a testament to everyone involved with this entire Menzies Motorsports team."

Bryce Menzies earned the PRO 2 Champion title for the second consecutive year by winning a doubleheader on Saturday morning. Rob MacCachren held a one point lead over Menzies going into the last race. Menzies and MacCachren started side-by-side in the second row and MacCachren took the lead early. Menzies powered to the front during the second half of the race and pulled away to win his second Championship.

"We had real high hopes coming into this season, so it means a lot to win another Championship," said Menzies. "We had our ups and downs all year but we kept working hard and stayed focused. This team never gives up. It's just been an awesome year, and I'm already looking forward to next season."
