Torgerson Named Rowdy Energy Athlete

MEDFORD, Ore. — Rowdy Energy, the enhanced hydration formula energy drink created by two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch, will sponsor up-and-coming micro sprint racer Ashton Torgerson. 

The 15-year-old Oregon native has also been added to the Rowdy Energy athlete roster for the 2022 season.

“Ashton is a great fit for Rowdy Energy. On the track he’s very fast, has won some races and is developing in his craft of dirt micro sprint racing,” Busch said. “As he travels up and down the west coast at a variety of different tracks, he’ll be a great ambassador for our brand and help us create awareness of our product as we continue to increase our portfolio of vendor partners up and down the West Coast.”

Torgerson turned heads at the 37th Tulsa Shootout, winning three heat races during the largest and most prestigious micro sprint race in the world. 

The two-time Lonnie Kaiser Memorial Super 600 winner claimed the 2021 Dixon Speedway track championship. He was also a champion at Dixon Speedway in 2019 in the Restricted division.

The 2022 season for the No. 02 Rowdy Energy-sponsored micro sprint will see Torgerson competing for the Dixon Speedway and Stockton’s Delta Speedway championships. 

He will compete in over 60 race days with both winged and non-winged competition planned.

“It means a lot as a young driver to have the backing of a NASCAR Cup Series champion and to become a Rowdy Energy athlete,” Torgerson said. “I can’t wait to go racing and go for wins and championships with Kyle’s support.”
