Well, its that time again.. race season is upon us! We are looking forward to a great season. We are feeling very confident we have the 1st season bugs worked out, and we are ready for strong and consistent finishes on the podium for 2011.
I wanted to throw out a special thanks to a few of our sponsors that really stepped up and helped us get to the track this season. Without them, the car would be parked at the shop, so we really owe them a huge thanks. Make sure that if your in the market for anything from these companies, let them know you heard about it from our race team!
Weller Racing – www.wellerracing.com
Jason is the visionary behind this race class, and has done a great job of making it successful and exciting for both drivers and fans. If you ever need anything engine related for your ATV and UTV needs, they are the place to work with. They know UTV and ATV engines like nobody else, and has been the company breaking ground with lots of horsepower and reliability.
Wicked Bilt – www.wickedbilt.com
They are a new division of Uni-Steer, and offer the best electric power steering kits on the market. If you are tired of being drained after a day of driving in your UTV, especially with some of the larger tires that are becoming more popular, you owe it to yourself to check them out. The power steering kits make driving your UTV effortless, and allow you to enjoy yourself more. Plus they can take the abuse of serious racing, and controlling a car that sees huge jumps and speeds of 80 mph every weekend.
Fullbore Innovations – www.fullboreinnovations.com
Grant and Jeff are the pioneers of great looking body kits for UTV’s. They have set the bar that everyone else try’s to follow. They are super high quality, have a great design that really separates your UTV from the rest, and they are super durable. We have put ours through hell last season, and they are still looking great, and holding up, despite the numerous times they have been ripped off, contacted other cars, walls, and even the track.
Fox Racing Shox – www.foxracingshox.com
Mark and Todd have stepped up this year and got us set up with their larger 2.5” internal bypass rear shocks to make our issues a thing of the past. We found that we were just pushing the limits of the normal UTV set up, with the huge demands that these 160 hp cars produce, when they are flying 80 plus feet through the air. So we are very excited to be running these new shocks this season. I can’t wait to see how they are going to work this weekend.
Here are some details on this weekends race:
