Samuel Hubinette (above in photo by Rodney Webb) had a high-flying good time as he raced to back-to-back victories during Memorial Day Weekend at the first stop of the 2011 Traxxas TORC season at RedBud MX in Buchanan, Mich.

Hubinette won the top spot in round 1 Saturday and round 2 Sunday in PRO Light — featuring a spectacular come-from-behind victory Sunday over Monster Energy/Traxxas/Maxxis driver C.J. Greaves.

“Mopar® is very familiar with Sam’s amazing car control skills and driving talents, so when Mopar and Ram decided to go racing in the 2011 TORC Series, it was an easy decision to tab Sam to pilot one of our entries. Sam proved to be a quick study and stunned the off-road racing community with a win in his very first TORC event.”

In third place on Sunday was another Ram-sponsored driver, Andrew Caddell.

In Sunday’s PRO 4 action, Scott Douglas beat out Ram Truck/Mopar‘s Ricky Johnson for the top spot. After the race Johnson said of his duel with Douglas, ” I was Rammin’ on him hard, but just couldn’t get by.”

In PRO 2 on Sunday, Ram Truck‘s Rob MacCachren took top honors in beating out Scott Taylor.

“This is the first time I’ve run this truck in the dirt. The guys did an awesome job with the settings on this Mopar/Ram, the BF Goodrich’s hooked up and we didn’t have to pull a tear-off all day. Looking forward to coming back next year!”
