Fresno, CA-Team Trail-Gear Racing took home top honors at the NorCal Rock Race in Prairie City, California on Saturday, September 29, 2012. Driver Matt Messer and co-driver James Schofield beat out more than a dozen drivers in the 4400 class to stand at the top spot on the podium.
Team Trail-Gear started off strong by beating out the entire field in their first heat and running a close second to Alex Hardaway despite a flat tire in the second heat to earn a front row start position in the main race. The main race lasted only 17 minutes but provided a lot of action for both the racers and the spectators. “Alex Hardaway had a clean shot from his start position, but he got hung up on the first rock section,” describes Messer “I rammed him to get him off the rocks. He rolled in the next rock section opening the door for us. James [Schofield] gave me the thumbs-up so I hammered it. We stayed out front all the way to the checkered flag.” Read More→
