Team owner and driver, Jason Kaminsky, was unable to compete during the race due to a wrist injury. Farmington, New Mexico based team co-driver Richard Jenkins assumed driving duties with team crew member Cody DeClusin, also of Farmington, navigating.
“It was disappointing to be on the sidelines today, but I tried to be useful on the radio and in the pits,” recalls Kaminsky. “Our first Dirt Riot competition was at Area BFE in 2012, and we took home a first place trophy. I have stood on the podium in every event I have competed at here,” Kaminsky continued, “but, I had full confidence in Rick that his experience with the racecar and course would get us to the checkered flag. Cody’s ability to jump in the co-driver’s seat at the last minute gave us the balance needed to finish well. The entire team demonstrated again that it can step up when called upon and be successful. It was a tough course; the strategy was to preserve the car and finish for points. I couldn’t be more proud that Rick and Cody brought home second place.”
The Four Corners 4×4 team is scheduled to compete next in the second round of the Dirt Riot Mountain Series June 14th at RAM Offroad Park near Colorado Springs, CO.
