scherer-kohFebruary 7, 2012 (Johnson Valley, CA) – After the dust settled on two days of qualifying for the 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers, 2009 champion Jason Scherer posted the fastest time in the No. 76 Rubicon Express /  Nitto Tire car. Last year Scherer arrived on the lake bed with a brand new single seat race car and suffered in qualifying as a result, having to get out of the car and stack rocks in order to complete the qualifying course.  After a year of fine tuning and fresh off a victory at the PSC Brawl at Blackwell Nitto Tire Nationals, it is clear that Scherer has all of the bugs worked out.  “That was incredibly fun!  The Rubicon Express / Nitto car is perfect for KOH and we are ready for the race.  We know the pace and the strategy we need to win.  Now it’s time to execute our game plan.”  Scherer commented.
