But with Frozen Rush, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/red+bull/">Red Bull</a> has skipped past all of them and headed to the ski hill.<br /><br />The energy-drink company is no stranger to motor racing, sponsoring and even running its own teams in countless motorsport disciplines - not least of them the reigning four-time world champion Red Bull Racing team in <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/f1/">Formula One</a>. Last year it brought Pro 4 truck racing legend Ricky Johnson out to Mount Snow in Vermont for a demonstration, but that was only to set the stage for this year's race.<br /><br />For the first time, Red Bull placed eight Pro 4 racing trucks - each packing 900 horsepower, special studded BFGoodrich tires and enough suspension travel and attitude to make a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ford/f-150+svt+raptor/">Ford Raptor</a> look like a Power Wheels toy - on a specially-designed race course (complete with jumps, slaloms and more) on the slopes of Maine's Sunday River Resort to battle for top honors.<br /><br />The event brought out ten thousand spectators despite the single-digit temperatures, and after the final four-lap heat was done, Ricky Johnson just edged out longtime rival Johnny Greaves who was hit with a five-second penalty for hitting a race gate.
