TJ Flores KOH13 1 220x146 TJ Flores Rocks at the Front of 2013 King of the HammersLAS VEGAS, NV   FEBRUARY 19, 2013:  Trophy Truck racer T.J. Flores sized up the rock racing competition at the 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers and qualified for the 3rd starting position. When the right rear spindle broke out of the axle housing 11 miles into the main race they limped it back to main pit and decided to not fix it.  “It was pretty incredible qualifying 3rd out of the best rock guys out there,” said TJ Flores, owner of Champion Race Works in Las Vegas, NV.  “It was extremely disappointing when we only made it 11 miles in the main race.  After we limped back to the main pit, I pulled off my helmet, took off my race suit and went to helping fix cars that were coming through the main pit.  Got to be a team player.” Read More→
