Second place Tony Pellegrino commented, “We used the WARN winch three times on race day, and was grateful for it each time!  We run WARN on all our GenRight Off Road vehicles and to me it is the standard.” Read More→

Campbell 1st place Ultra4 SS300 300x199 Ultra4s Dominate the Desert at Silver State 300 April 30, 2011- Las Vegas, NV: From grocery-getting Expeditions to monstrous blue-tubed buggies, it was hard to miss the unlimited 4-wheel drive class known as Ultra4 at last weekend’s Best in the Desert Silver State 300. The Ultra4 class, identifiable by their 4400 numbers, proved once again that they can hold their own in the desert:  They were both the largest class at the start line and the largest class to cross the finish line at Saturday’s 300 mile high-speed race through Nevada’s scenic back country. The drivers had weather on their side as cool temperatures kept overheating issues at bay and windy conditions made passing easier on a course that is already known to be a smooth, fast course well suited for many of the Ultra4 cars.
