We’re loading up and heading out to Flagstaff Arizona for Overland Expo West May 20-22. If you’re looking to outfit your truck or SUV to hit the trails or go off the grid, this is the event for you as we’ll be doing some show specials.

Make sure to stop by our booth (P55) to see our latest and greatest products as well as our fleet of Camburg Overland/Offroad vehicles. You can see firsthand some of our new products installed on our Ford Bronco and Ford Raptor as well as some of our partner brands products we work with. We’ll also have our new ’22 Toyota Tundra suspension products on display for everyone to see for the first time.

While you’re there hang out for a bit and we’ll give you the full Camburg booth tour, grab some new t-shirts/hats so you look the part and stay and play some cornhole if you don’t want to leave; though we will have to kick you out when the show ends each day.

Unlike other tradeshows, the Overland Expo has a ton of different events and training seminars over the 3 days. Regardless if you’re a seasoned pro out on the trail or just got the itch to start exploring, this is the show you don’t want to miss.

See you out there!

2022 brought some new team sponsors and more importantly a new focus and drive for the Camburg Kids. The last couple years racing while successful, have also been a much-needed learning experience with necessary seat time. This year the kids are excited about taking that knowledge and gained confidence and applying it. For their first race of the year, they’re now rocking KMC’s forged Mesa beadlock wheels that are stronger and lighter and Optima’s new high performance “PureFlow Technology” Yellow Top battery. 

The M.O.R.E. McKenzie’s 250 race was 5 grueling laps out in Lucerne Valley, CA which is known for some of the roughest & highly technical desert terrain out there. This area recently hosted the King of the Hammers event so quite a bit of the race course was still torn up from that. The day prior to the race they were able to prerun the course in Goodman’s iconic Bronco which was an added bonus for sure. They got to see firsthand what they’d be up against. On race day Cody Campbell, Zach Zaiden and Corey Campbell would be sharing driving duties in their Class 1400 Camburg Racing Ford Ranger.

Cody started the race and immediately got into his groove and rhythm. Around mile 12 though he got tangled up in some rocks and had a bit of some down time. He got back under way and charged through his first lap and was in 2nd place. Lap 2 was pretty uneventful which is a good thing. Everything was running great and Cody was running a great pace slowly catching the leader. At the end of lap 2 Cody pulled into main pit for a driver change and fuel but the team noticed a substantial power steering leak. They pulled the hood off and ended up topping off the system with power steering fluid.

Corey got in the truck and they were back under way onto lap 3. Even with the lengthy pit stop they were still in 2nd place. He set a pace he was comfortable with making sure to give the fans at mile 29 a little air time. The truck was working awesome and the FOX shocks were handling everything Corey could throw at them. At the end of lap 3 he came into main pit for fuel and to top off the power steering again. Kyle the co-driver ended up getting out and Cody got back in his place. Lap 4 would have the Campbell brothers both in the truck. We can’t confirm or deny any in truck fist pumping through mile 29 as they aired it out and also setting the fastest 4th lap time. Still sitting in 2nd place they pulled into main pit for the last driver change and power steering fluid with one last look over.

Zach now got into the truck to take it to the finish line with Cody. He had some pressure on his shoulders to either better or at minimum keep their 2nd place position; which he was up for the challenge. By this time the course was pretty rough and attrition was starting to come into play. Running a similar pace as they did prior, around a 1/3 into the last lap they saw the leader pulled off to the side. Not knowing their issues, Zach knew he had to continue with the pace to stay up front and insure the win. In off-road racing things can change instantly and nothing is guaranteed. With his foot to the floor, Zach crossed the finish line in 4 hrs 51 min and secured Camburg’s race win.

“The kids have no problem going fast, the hard part is knowing when to go fast and being strategic about it. They’re learning that part and today it paid off with a win. It’s exciting to see them be successful and having fun racing at the same time.”  – Jerry Zaiden

“Seeing them run up front all day and take the win is awesome. It makes the long hours and hard work worth it for all of us and they’re learning something new on and off the track every race. The race starts long before the green flag drops on race day with prep and testing.” – Jason Campbell

Camburg would like to thank all their sponsors, team members and fellow racers for the opportunity to be racing with them and being a part of the next generation of young racers.

The Camburg Kids 2001 Ford Ranger Edge showcases Camburg’s suspension and racing parts along with their sponsors. For the front suspension the truck is outfitted with Camburg’s race series long-travel kit that utilizes their 2.50 front race hubs, FK heims and uniballs and a HOWE steering box with FOX’s 2.5 coilovers, 3.0 bypass shocks and 2.5 bump stops. The rear suspension is made up of Camburg’s 4-link kit connected to their 4.00 rear axle housing running their 3.25 race hubs. With FOX’s 2.5 coilovers, 3.5 bypass shocks and 2.5 bump stops there is plenty of control in the rear. The chassis and suspension are coated with STEEL-IT for optimum corrosion resistance and protection. Powering the truck is a K&N filtered 600hp Moruzzi built LS engine with a Magnaflow exhaust mated to a Culhane built Turbo 400 transmission that is fed by a custom Pyrotect fuel cell. A Optima Yellow Top Battery powers the electronics and OnX Offroad provides their GPS navigation. The Ranger sits on 37” General Tire Grabber X3 tires and 17” KMC Wheels forged Mesa beadlock wheels. In the cockpit the kids are strapped into Sparco EVO seats with their Sparco steering wheel and Rugged Radios communication in arms reach along with an assortment of Scosche powersports mounts and accessories. When day turns to night, they rely on their Baja Designs LED series of lights.

We’re excited to team up with Optima Batteries for 2022 for all our battery needs. We’ll be putting their new yellow top batteries to the test in our race trucks, Overland vehicles, tow/chase trucks and daily drivers. We’ve been using Optima Batteries since the late 90’s and are excited to be working with them again.

The new OPTIMA® YELLOWTOP® is a true dual-purpose battery, delivering ultimate starting power and deep-cycling in one complete package; bringing the OPTIMA YELLOWTOP power to today’s vehicles. All OPTIMA batteries are constructed from the highest-quality materials including 99.99% pure lead.

  • The new OPTIMA YELLOWTOP has been engineered with 99.99% pure lead, highly compressed radial grids and a direct-path cast-on strap to deliver robust power, extreme recharge and unsurpassed performance.
  • 99.99% pure lead in highly compressed radial grid plates provide resistance to damage from vibration and corrosion.
  • OPTIMA proprietary AGM flat-plate technology features ultra-thin fibers woven into each highly compressed plate, increasing plate count and surface area, which ultimately maximizes the power and significantly extends the life of the battery.
  • The exclusive direct-path cast-on strap establishes a direct connection between power cells, reduces internal resistance and maximizes the flow of energy, which provides faster cranking power and higher cold-cranking amps.

We’ve teamed back up with Wheel Pros to outfit all of our race and support trucks along with our Overland and project vehicles with the best wheels from KMC, Black Rhino and Fuel Offroad among many others.

Camburg has a long outstanding history with Wheel Pros over the last 20+ years. We started out racing in the late 90’s on American Racing wheels and transitioned into their ATX line of wheels on our Ford Ranger. Then in 2007 we partnered with KMC and raced stock full, heavy metal, Trophy Truck and Class 6100 and later won the 2017 Mint 400 in the Toyota TRD Pro Tacoma. Camburg and Wheel Pros have been a winning combination in off-road racing and will continue to be for the coming years. 

The Wheel Pros family of brands spans the gamut of styles, sizes and applications and ventures into the UTV Powersports market as well. This gives us the ability to offer our customers and racers a wider range of wheel options. 

“Teaming back up with the crew at Wheel Pros after all these years is awesome as we’ve both grown and expanded our businesses. We’ve come full circle and it feels like home.” – Jerry Zaiden

“We started out racing on American Racing and KMC wheels and it’s great to have our kids do the same now. They’re a great company to work with and make great products.” – Jason Campbell
