First Round UTV Bout at 2012 Griffin King of the Hammers
SHREVEPORT, LA – February 1, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – High Lifter Products’ owner Scott Smith is teaming up with experienced King of the Hammers Racer Aaron Peters for a first round bout in the UTV race at 2012 Griffin King of the Hammers on February 9. The duo will race a transformed 2012 Polaris RZR XP 900 complete with High Lifter’s 28” Radial Outlaw tires and Arched Radius Bars.
Custom Splice and EverythingSxS.com began the RZR XP 900’s transformation several months ago as they prepared for the challenging terrain presented at the ultimate desert race in Johnson Valley, California. The addition of the 28” Radial Outlaw tires gave the RZR XP over 3,000 biting edges and extensive siping that allows for superior traction in most environments. In addition to the tire upgrade, High Lifter’s Arched Radius Bars were installed maximizing the available space in the rear radius bar area.
The RZR XP project was made possible with the help of many partners including Custom Splice, High Lifter Products, WARN Winches, Wide Open Design, Holz Racing Products, Rugged Radios, Pro Armor, C2G Fab, Ape Eater Racing, 4×4 Oil, OffRoadHosting.com, and Hyper Wheels.
Peters, owner of Ape Eater Racing, is no stranger to off-road racing in the desert climate. Last season he drove and co-drove for the In the Pink Racing team. The addition of Smith to the team brings a vast amount of experience with aftermarket UTV accessories as well as extensive knowledge about powersports product development. Smith said he is looking forward to expanding his riding and racing repertoire at King of the Hammers, “It’s time to trade in the mud-slinging Outlaws and hit the desert in California! The great thing about being in the powersports industry is that no matter where you ride – whether it’s mud, snow, rocks, dunes, trails – there’s a common love of the outdoors that only fellow riders have. It’s that love and the excitement that makes me ready for this race in California!”
With the King of the Hammers race less than a month away, High Lifter Products, Custom Splice, and EverythingSxS.com are confident that the race will be a strong start to a great 2012 UTV racing season.
