The King of the Hammers will kick off the 2010 racing season for 2009 VORRA Sportsman Champion Kevin Yoder
The final round of racing was a short course race in Prairie City, California. Yoder began the race and rolled the rock buggy 1 ½ times in the 3rd turn. It took place right in front of the grandstand crowd. On the restart Yoder choose the more conservative throttle control option. He did not need to race to win the championship, but his competitive spirit took over and managed to maintain the lead for about half a lap. He finished mid-pack and clinched the season championship by 101 points.
“The rock buggy has less top speeds than most desert cars, but he 4WD allows me the ability to drive harder out of the corners and through the rough courses,” said Yoder. “We’re looking forward competing this year and sport our new fast red color.”
Yoder’s first race will begin with the King of Hammers Off-Road Race in February. He is anticipating another 20 plus race season after the Hammers with VORRA, Nor Cal Rock Racing, CalRocs and the Grand Slam Off-Road Series.
“I’ve used K&N products for at least 20 years,” said Yoder. “I use K&N because I come up with the specs I need for my vehicles and go through the K&N catalog and find the K&N filters I need. K&N is also cost effective and gives me great filtration as it protects my engines from course debris in off-road racing.”
