That name may sound familiar. The new team taps into the already successful efforts of Raceco, an off-road racing business that already supports Talon competitors in a variety of racing series across the US. Raceco has fielded class-winning efforts in the SCORE International Baja 1000 and 500, as well as the Best in the Desert and Ultra 4 series. Now, with factory backing directly from Honda, the team will direct its efforts toward the Champ series.
Fantasy sports leagues have been popular for years, with football and baseball leading the way. Now ATV racing fans have a league of their own on OffRoadFantasy.com.
The web site has launched its first two off-road racing fantasy leagues for 2010, with leagues for the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country ATV and Bike Series.
Scott has teamed up with OffRoadFantasy.com to give Scott Rewards certificates to the first 250 entries, and to provide a pair of Scott NoSweatXi goggles to the winners from week one. The race takes place this weekend, so players are encouraged to sign up now.
DragonFire Racing has been producing some of the top ATV and UTV performance accessories for years, but it wasn’t until the 2010 Indy Dealer Expo that the Arizona-based company launched its first wheel.
DragonFire’s new aluminum beadlock wheel was completed just before the show so there was no press material of any kind available, but the rep we talked to was quite excited about it. Expect the wheel to come in sizes to fit both ATVs and side-by-sides.
Houser Racing unveiled an entirely new lineup of aluminum accessories at the Indy Dealer Expo. Perhaps the most popular ATV-related product of the entire show is Houser’s new “Suspension” Nerf Bars.
The most groundbreaking part of these nerf bars is the foot peg, which is where the “suspension” comes from. It works similar to a swing arm with a rubber isolated pivot point and replaceable cushion ball that is pre-load adjustable. The pegs are made of TIG welded Chromoly with end caps that are attached with air craft grade rivets. We can’t say enough how cool we think this peg is and how popular we think this nerf bar system is going to be.
2XL ATV Offroad calls itself the “hottest action-packed racing game to hit the iPhone or iPod Touch.” It features 16 ATV Supercross and Outdoor National tracks, two freestyle levels, up to 16 stunts and a “massive” career mode.
The game, which retails for $4.99, allows users to choose between 250cc and 450cc ATVs, as well as hundreds of ATV and rider skin combinations. Multiplayer mode is available, which allows you to race other users. You can check out a trailer of the game after the break.
