Top Fuel foes on the racetrack and best buddies away from it, Antron Brown and Steve Torrence have a loosely organized off-road racing team upon which Brown (with a push from creative Torrence car chief Bobby Lagana) bestowed the name “Chocolate-And-Crème.” In March they raced a Polaris RZR in the Mint 400 off-road classic in the desert near Primm, Nev. Torrence called it “a damn good time,” despite having steering trouble twice. Brown encountered no problems while completing the entire 117-mile first lap of the three-mile event.
They broke up the monotony of the Western Swing this Wednesday by taking advantage of being in the neighborhood of DirtFish Rally School, at scenic Snoqualmie, Wash. There they honed their car-control skills behind the wheels of the turbocharged 4-cylinder, rear-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza STIs that are decidedly different from their 10,000-horsepower dragsters. DirtFish is considered North America’s premier rally school, one stars Ken Block and Travis Pastrana have visited.
