Tin Benders 4×4 Club Trying To Save Johnson Valley OHV Area
California’s OHV community is fighting hard to save the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Area from being taken over by the Marines. One group, the Tin Benders 4×4 Club, is donating funds to help ensure civilians can continue using the largest OHV area in the United States.
The Tin Bender Jamboree attracted approximately 400 people and 110 Vehicles were officially registered for the event and therefore eligible for the free prize drawing. Roughly $10,000 was raised for the California Motorized Recreation Council (CMRC), which is leading the fight to save Johnson Valley as a premier destination for off-road motor sports events and family recreation. The Tin Benders $9,500 donation was pushed to $10,000 with a $500 donation from Mike Ruzicka, who donated art work for the event T-Shirts.
“This land is very important to all of us, we need to do everything we can to protect it” says club member and off-road racer Eric Anderson.
