Horn competes in her Honda 400EX ATV through just about any kind of terrain. “I’ve gone over rocks, through the mud, sand and silt on courses that can be six to 12 miles long,” said Horn. “It’s usually a 1 ½ hour race and I don’t stop.  I love the mud and the races, once I get started it's awesome. My motto is, if your bones are not showing just keep on going.”

The next race in the Hare Scramble will be in Winnesboro, South Carolina. There are only two races left in the season and Horn accumulated more points than anyone else for the series win.

Horn started racing in 2001. “My brothers rode and one day I jumped on the back for a ride,” she said. “That is not the way to ride a quad, so I decided to drive my own. I wanted more control and started racing really aggressive people. They don’t baby me the way my brothers did.”

Horn also races in the Women’s Novice division of the Can-Am Grand National Cross County Championship Series. She is in 10th place overall. “We couldn’t race in all the events this season,” she said. “There are only two races left in 2009 and unless we win the lottery, we’re not going.”

“In Round 3 of the GNCC Series, I flipped into a ravine but finished after we got the quad back on track,” said Horn. “In Round 4, our clutch fried after only two laps. Overall there have been a few challenges, but it’s been a great season.”

Horn uses the following K&N products:

K&N air filter HA-4099
K&N high airflow filter lid HA-4099-T
K&N round filter wrap 22-8016PK
K&N oil filter KN-113

“I’ve been a K&N fan for quite a while,” said Horn. “I compete against 800 cc machines and K&N gives me the power increase I need, plus the extra filtration and protection necessary to win races.”
