With 2019 coming to an end, we look back at the year of racing and accomplishments the Camburg team achieved.
For 2019 Camburg changed their focus on racing a bit which included adding some new events and more so getting the Camburg Kids involved in racing and in some exhibition events. They contended two trucks this year, their KINETIK Camburg built 6100 Spec Trick Truck and the Camburg Kids Ford Ranger.
The combination of races and team focus earned them 6 podiums in 9 races/events and included 2 back to back wins in the Best in the Desert series ultra-competitive 6100 Spec Trick Truck class.
Early in the year, the Camburg Kids were able to earn a 2nd place finish in the 1400 class in their Ford Ranger and a 3rd place finish in the Unlimited truck class in the KINETIK 6100 at the Method Race Wheels Jump Champs Time Trials at Glen Helen Raceway. They were also able to take home 2nd place in the big air jump competition at the same event in their Ford Ranger.
Camburg then qualified 1st and finished in 1st place at the Best in the Desert General Tire Vegas to Reno race in the 6100 class. This is the longest off-road race in the USA and draws a record number of racers and teams. They had a commanding lead all day and finished 28 minutes ahead of 2nd place.
Coming off their win, the Camburg team then won the Best in the Desert Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic in the 6100 class. This was a 2 day race which left no room for errors since it’s a short course style desert race with combined results from each day. Back to back wins made a statement and put a lot of eyes on the team.
Rounding out the year, the Camburg Kids entered their Ford Ranger at SNORE’s Rage at the River race and placed 3rd in the large 1450 class. This was also a 2 day short course style desert race and they were able to put in 2 solid days of racing putting them on the podium.
All in all, 2019 was a very successful year for Camburg’s racing division and 2020 brings in some new sponsors and exciting events that once again will put Camburg and the Camburg Kids in the spotlight showcasing their trucks and sponsors.
“This year we changed things up a bit and doing so brought some new excitement and energy to the team along with some awesome content. It was really great to see the kids step into the ring, put on their racing gloves and embrace it 100%.”
– Jerry Zaiden
“Racing gives us a way to refine and further develop not only our KINETIK race trucks but also our Camburgproducts. The kids Ford Ranger is a perfect platform to showcase our off the shelf products along with our sponsors products that appeal to our core fans.”
– Jason Campbell
Camburg would like to thank all their 2019 sponsors, team members and fellow racers for the opportunity to be racing with them and also to be a part of the next generation of young racers and enthusiasts.
