In a long weekend of competition K&N air filters sponsored side by side racer Cody Rahders piloted his Fox sponsored Polaris RZR to 13th and 5th place finishes at rounds 1 and 2 of the Terracross Championships. After that Cody was on track again in his Polaris Cognito Fox sponsored RZR at rounds 4 and 5 of the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series.

The action packed weekend began for K&N driver Cody Rahders with Terracross round 1. Cody finished 2nd in his day one qualifier which moved him directly to the round one main event. In the round one main event race Cody started 6th in his K&N equipped Polaris RZR and slowly worked his way up to 3rd before breaking an axle on the last lap and finishing 5th.

K&N supported racer Cody Rahders broke another axle in his day two main event qualifier and was forced to battle for a spot in the main event during the last chance qualifier (LCQ). Cody won the LCQ with ease which earned him a spot in the round two main event. In the round two main event race Cody started from second to last and worked his way up to 8th in the K&N powered Polaris RZR before breaking yet another axle. In the end he was credited with 13th.

"Huge thank you to Fox for sponsoring me at the Terracross Championships. It was a great opportunity. The front differential broke during practice and I kept over driving the car in 2 wheel drive and breaking axles, super hard not to do," said Cody Rahders.

At Round 4 of the Lucas Oil Regional series Cody qualified 2nd then went on to finish the main in 2nd place behind the wheel of the K&N filters equipped Polaris Cognito Fox sponsored RZR. Cody again qualified 2nd for LOORRS Round 5; however all hell broke loose in the main event.

The LOORRS round 5 main event was plagued with intentional brake checking, rough driving, aggressive passes, and multiple crashes. Cody Rahders physically finished 3rd in the main event with only 3 wheel drive and literally dragging the Polaris RZR’s right front tire. At the finish line the driver who crossed the finish line in 2nd place was black flagged moving Cody one position higher up the podium.

After the trophy presentations the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing series post-race tech inspector requested that the podium finishers remove and surrender their cylinder heads and camshafts for inspection. The 1st place finisher declined inspection and was disqualified. Cody Rahders’ K&N filters protected engine was disassembled, inspected, and passed by the inspector. Cody Rahders was awarded with the win for round 5.

Afterward Cody Rahders said, "That was the absolute longest weekend of my life! I had fun but I'm glad we have a little time before the next race, my car is pretty bent and needs some work."
