In the natural world, evolution takes place over thousands and thousands of years. In the world of off-road truck racing, natural selection has a much tighter timeline. In 2014 Ricky Johnson realized the possibility of driving Pro4 trucks in the snow – and 9 of the best drivers in the world slapped on snow tires, and left the comfort of dirt racing to compete in the first ever Red Bull Frozen Rush.

Fast forward to 2016: The drivers are better, the trucks are meaner, the track is more demanding, and the 1st place trophy is more coveted than ever. The emphasis is no longer on survivability…it’s on victory.
