Emmitsburg, MD – April 16 2012 – Doug Bigelow, the owner and driver of the #4413 Yukon Gear and Axle/Bigelow Motorsports Ultra 4 race vehicle, won the opening round of three, at the Rausch Creek Offroad Endurance race this past weekend. Battling a tough group of 25 seasoned Ultra 4 racers from the East Coast, Bigelow consistently put down lap times in the top 3 racers to take home the win. “This was a tough race to persevere through, at the end of lap one the race buggy started overheating bad and we lost the lower radiator fan. I thought for sure it was done at that point when I had a couple of racers pass us. The motor kept going into limp mode and out and fortunately we kept running it as hard as it would take it. I’ll say this; the little Chevy 5.3 will take a beating. It’s been overcooked, frozen and run upside down and somehow it is still going”, noted Bigelow of the race. Read More→

Emmitsburg, MD – May 27, 2011 – Bigelow Motorsports owner and driver Doug Bigelow qualified for the 2012 King of the Hammers race at the annual Rausch Creek King of the Hammers Qualifier with a 7th place finish on May 21st. Driving his Yukon Gear and Axle sponsored Ultra 4 racer he battled not only some of the greatest drivers in rock sports, including Shannon Campbell the 2011 King of the Hammers champion, but the nasty East Coast elements that dropped 6 inches of rain on the event the night before. “We knew the race was going to battle of attrition and the finishing rate showed it. Anytime you get less than half of the field finishing an event its tough. This race was 75 miles of tough East Coast rocks and woods that was made even harder with all of the rain and mud. Rausch Creek and HammerKing have put on another great event and we are very excited to be going back to the big King of the Hammers race for the 5th consecutive year!” noted Doug Bigelow. Read More→
