FOX Hires Rock-Racing Suspension Guru Wayne Israelsen for 2014 King of the Hammers Event
Company Boosts Contingency Package to $15,000, Offers Free Tuning Sessions with Israelsen at Johnson Valley Event
El Cajon, Calif. – For years, FOX athletes have ruled “King of the Hammers,” an extreme competition called “the toughest single day event in the world.” In the event, competitors race across the desert at high speeds, conquering several of the nation’s toughest rock crawling trails. FOX athletes have consistently been the fastest in the competition, earning more titles than all other shock manufacturers combined.
In line with FOX’s dedication to athlete support and service, the company has hired AllTech Motorsports’ Wayne Israelsen to lead its 2014 efforts. “Wayne brings a unique understanding and ability to set up rock-racing cars to win. Adding Wayne now gives any team with FOX shocks an edge over the competition,” said FOX athlete and 2012 King of the Hammers champion Erik Miller.
FOX and Israelsen Offering Two Testing Sessions
Israelsen and the FOX Factory Race Support team will be conducting two testing sessions in Johnson Valley prior to the 2014 race. During these sessions, they will observe the racecar’s performance and review technical feedback from the driver, and then will consult with the driver to implement any performance adjustments.
The FOX team will be set up on the lakebed Friday and Saturday, December 27th and 28th, and then again on Friday and Saturday, January 17th and 18th. FOX techs will also be onsite starting on January 31st and will remain the entire race week.
There are a limited number of testing sessions available and signing up in advance is recommended. To schedule a FREE tuning and set up session, please email Wayne at [email protected] or call 951-970-3399.
