BMM DSC 0214 800x532 220x146 King of the Hammers a “Learning Experience” for Race Prep Racing #4474March 14, 2012, Simi Valley, CA:  The 4474 Race Prep Racing team known for consistency and perseverance encountered a day ending break at the 2012 Griffin King of the Hammers race in Johnson Valley, CA on February 10, 2012. At race mile 68 (of 171 miles) the driver Richie Carter was told by his pit crew that fluid wasn’t going to be enough to keep the rear differential happy.  Carter, thinking he was simply leaking a little fluid from the rear axle due to a seal failure, had planned to add fluid at the pits as needed.  But when he stopped there for fluid and fuel the crew had to tell him the issue was larger than that.  Upon further inspection it seemed the rear axle housing had suffered a break at the spindle and the axle was being held together by the brakes on the passenger side.  The team had no choice but to end their race efforts there.
