The Camburg Kids have been putting in time at the shop and seat time out in the dirt getting ready for their 2nd race of 2021. This year they’re really focused on developing their driving skills and car control at the pace needed to win races consistently. Over the past weekend they entered M.O.R.E’s Transaxle Engineering Challenge race in the 1400 truck class.

It took place out in Barstow, CA and was made up of seven 28-mile laps through some of the roughest and tore up race course in Southern California. If you’re not familiar with the area, this is where most race teams come to test and shock tune so you know the terrain is brutal and challenging.

Cody Campbell was starting 1st off the line in the class, so he knew he had to put a fast pace down right away. He did just that and was running in 2nd place on laps 1 and 2 right on the heels of the leader. Getting more comfortable behind the wheel he pushed a little harder and was able to take the lead on lap 3 before getting out to hand over the truck to Zach.

Zach Zaiden got in for the next two laps and was determined to keep the truck running up front. The truck was running and handling great. Finishing lap 4 he was still in the lead. They knew it was gonna be a battle to the bitter end. Losing a little time on lap 5 he pulled into the pits to hand over the truck to Corey. With 2 more laps to go they were only 2 minutes behind the leader.

Corey Campbell then got in the driver’s seat to finish out the race and make a run for the lead. Even with the added pressure on him he was able to focus and put down one of their faster lap times of the day. He crossed the finish line in 4 hrs 16 mins in 2nd place just under 3.5 minutes behind the winner.

Even with a 2nd place finish, they were all extremely excited and more importantly had a ton of fun out there racing. With zero issues or flats, they got to really focus on their driving and learning the truck more. Every time they get behind the wheel they learn something new and get more comfortable in true race conditions. With driver changes totaling over 4 minutes and losing by less than 3.5 minutes, they knew they ran a race winning pace …. it just didn’t work out that way this time.

“Seeing the kids getting faster while at the same time smoother and not beating themselves or the truck up tells me they’re learning and that’s what this is all about.” – Jerry Zaiden

“We’ve had a few bumps & hiccups along the way but the kids are getting more comfortable behind the wheel and having a blast doing it. The race starts long before you line up and they’re putting more time in at the shop learning to work on and prep the truck.” – Jason Campbell

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

With some recent upgrades and testing, the Camburg Kids were ready to race and were looking for a top finish in their 1450 Ranger. Unfortunately the SNORE Primm race was cancelled the night before the green flag was to drop.

Instead of packing up and going home, they decided to run the truck down in Barstow, CA for the day for some seat time and fun.

Baja Designs has been in the off-road lighting business for over 25 years and is considered the leader in development and manufacturing. Their accomplishments and race results are unmatched both here in the USA and abroad. Baja Designs lights are in every form of off-road racing, winning races and championships.

The Camburg Kids made no delay getting back in the race truck for 2020. They are hungry to learn and get as much seat time in as they can. This past weekend they entered MORE’s Slash X Duel in the Desert race in the 1400 class.

The “Duel in the Desert” took place out at Barstow, CA and was made up of ten 16-mile laps through some of the roughest and tore up race course in Southern California. If you’re not familiar with the area, this is where most race teams come to test and shock tune so you know the terrain is brutal and challenging.

Corey Campbell started the race with Robert Moruzzi as his navigator. Robert not only built the LS engine for the Camburg Ford Ranger but also has a lot of driving/racing experience himself out in Barstow so he could give some great input and feedback to the kids. They were 6th off the line and quickly charged through the pack and set a fast pace. After 3 laps of making some passes and being smart behind the wheel, Corey was able to hand it over to his older brother Cody in 2nd place.

Cody Campbell got in on lap 4 and dropped the hammer. He pushed hard and was able to get around the 1st place truck and pull ahead. He put down the fastest lap of the day in the 1400 class with a lap time of 16 mins 35 secs.  He continued his pace and continued to put time on the leader. Unfortunately, his luck ran out and he got tangled up in some rocks and had to pull off course and inspect the truck. During this down time the 2nd place truck got around them. They got back under way and pulled into main pit to hand over the truck to Zach.

Zach Zaiden then got in the driver’s seat to finish out the last 3 laps and make a run for the leader as they were 8 minutes behind. The truck was running great and with some clean air late in the day, Zach was able to put down some fast and consistent laps and get around the leader late on the last lap and cross the finish line in 1st place. It was a close finish at the end but the Camburg Kids were able to come out ahead.

Starting off the race season with a win always up’s the team’s excitement and they are looking forward to the next one. Keep your eyes on these kids, they’re just getting started in their racing adventures.

“Jason and I started displaying at contingency and racing in Barstow so it’s awesome to see the kids come out here and win where it all started for the two of us.”Jerry Zaiden

“The kids are getting fast behind the wheel quickly and that fires me up to get the truck that much more dialed in for them. With more and more seat time, they’re getting comfortable in racing conditions.” – Jason Campbell

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

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.

Coming off their win at the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno race, Camburg set their sights on finishing off the 2019 racing season with another win and to set the tone for next year.

The “Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic” is a fun and unique 2-day race format that mixes short course and desert racing elements on a 16-mile course in Laughlin, Nevada. With each race consisting of 4 laps, there’s zero margin of error to finish on the podium. Your overall standings for the weekend are based on your combined times for both days of racing. The Camburg General Tire Scosche Monster Energy #6188 Spec Trick Truck was up for the challenge.

The team headed to Laughlin, NV from Huntington Beach, CA for qualifying on Thursday and tech/contingency on Friday. Only the top classes in BITD qualify prior to the race to determine the starting order come race day. By random drawing, Camburg was 24th off the line in qualifying in a massive field of 6100 trucks.

With Kyle Jergensen behind the wheel with his co-driver Shawn Shanks, as soon as the light turned green they were full throttle start to finish. The truck was on rails through the corners and they put down a run to be proud of. Qualifying 2nd, their lap of 5 mins 20 seconds was just shy of qualifying 1st by less than 4 seconds. This meant that fellow Method Race Wheels teammate #6183 Brock Heger would be first off the line with nothing but clean air ahead of him and a target on his back.

Saturdays starting order was based on Fridays qualifying results. With a side by side drag race start, the Camburg 6100 was staged 2nd since the fastest qualifier gets to start solo. Each group is also staged 30 seconds apart. Camburg got the green flag and the race was on! Kyle hit all his marks, the General Tire X3’s were hooking up and he put the Camburg truck ahead leaving the infield and out into the desert. Since #6183 started 30 seconds ahead of them, they needed to close the gap in order to win. Lap after lap Kyle got closer and closer and was leading the race on time even though he was physically 2nd on course. When it was all said and done the truck ran flawless and Camburg crossed the finish line in 1 hour 3 minutes and 56 seconds and was the winner of day one by 15.5 seconds.

Sunday’s game plan was one and the same, to drive hard and make no mistakes. By winning Saturday, Camburg was lined up side by side with 2nd place finisher #6183 and they would be the first group off. When the light turned green, both were hard off the line and Kyle was able to pull ahead and get out of the infield first. Both drivers wanted the overall win and the pressure was on Brock to make up for lost time. About 8 miles into lap 1 the #6183 got around Kyle and started to pull away a little. Kyle knew he couldn’t let him stretch too far out of his sights so he ran a pace fast enough to stay out of his dust. He knew the time split needed to win so he paced himself and waited to see how each lap progressed.

Finishing the 3rd lap it was time to turn it up. Kyle pushed the Camburg 6100 the hardest he ever had and it took everything he could throw at it, as #6183 was doing the same to stay out front. You could see in the infield Kyle was going for the win and he was hanging it out. On the last lap he was able to reel in Brock and it was one of the closest battles all weekend. The Camburg 6100 finished day two in 1 hour 4 minutes and 45 seconds in 2nd place only 7 seconds behind the leader. With the combined 2-day results, the Camburg General Tire Scosche Monster Energy #6188 Spec Trick Truck was the overall winner of the “Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic”.

Ending the season with two wins in a row for the Camburg team was a great accomplishment as they didn’t race the full season and weren’t going for a class championship. This year’s schedule was all about racing select events and going for the win in each.

“To end the year with a win is awesome! Kyle drove the wheels off our 6100 truck all weekend and had no issues. Looking at the engine management data we can tell our torque converter was too tight for this race so the truck will be even faster here next year with that change. On a race course like this it’s awesome to see the top 6100’s running so close to the top Trick Truck times, goes to show you how competitive they are and how fast they are becoming.”
– Jerry Zaiden

“After Vegas to Reno we spent a little more time dialing in the FOX shocks with SDG and the results speak for themselves. Laughlin is a rough course with some big jumps and big holes and the truck took it no problem. Kyle and Shawn pushed the truck the hardest they ever had and it never skipped a beat.”
– Jason Campbell

“After us winning day one I knew Brock was gonna push it as hard as he could on Sunday and I did the same. Finishing off the year with a win is great and I’m looking forward to next year. It’s been great being a part of the Camburg team these last two races and the truck is working awesome.”
– Kyle Jergensen

Now with the race over, Camburg is already tearing the truck down and getting it ready for the upcoming SEMA Tradeshow November 5-8.

Camburg would like to thank all their sponsors, team members and fellow racers for the opportunity to be racing in this class and series. Best in the Desert puts on the highest quality and most well-organized events out there today. The Spec Trick Truck 6100 class has some of the most exciting off-road racing out of all the classes.

Camburg Racing Start to Finish – Wins Vegas to Reno

For 2019, Camburg changed the scope of their racing schedule and set out to only race the most prestigious races in the Best in the Desert series in the 6100 Spec Trick Truck class.

The “General Tires Vegas to Reno presented by FOX” is the longest off-road race in the US with over 500 miles of the harshest terrain and conditions in the Nevada desert. The Camburg team had one goal and one mission, to put the Camburg General Tire Scosche Monster Energy #6188 Spec Trick Truck on the podium at the top spot.

Coming into an event like this is weeks and months in the making and involves many different facets. From shock tuning sessions and system functionality tests to coordinating race and pit logistics, it takes all these aspects and more to be successful, let alone win.

The team headed to Las Vegas, NV from Huntington Beach, CA for qualifying on Wednesday and tech/contingency on Thursday. Only the top classes in BITD qualify prior to the race to determine the starting order come race day. By random drawing, Camburg was 4th off the line in qualifying in a massive field of 6100 trucks.

With Kyle Jergensen behind the wheel and his co-driver Shawn Skanks, as soon as the light turned green they were in full kill mode. Kyle drives at 100% intensity start to finish and they rocketed through the short qualifying course with no issues or mistakes. Their qualifying run of 5 mins 26 seconds was the fastest of the day and nearly 2 seconds faster than 2nd place qualifier, which is significant on such a short distance course in a spec. engine class. It was also faster than 80% of the unlimited Trick Truck class racers. Qualifying 1st made the statement that the team was going for the win.

After technical inspection and contingency, the team headed 100 miles northwest to the small town of Beatty, NV where the starting area is to camp for the night. This was made easy by their fleet of chase/pit trucks that are outfitted with Go Fast Campers.

With a final early morning prep/check that Friday, the #6188 Camburg truck was off the start line at around 10:30 am.

The pace Kyle set was on point from the start and he was immediately catching up to the slower Trick Trucks ahead of him. This made for some dusty conditions and smart driving but it didn’t faze them. They knew they had a target on their back and needed to keep making moves and pull ahead which they did. Before pit 4 around race mile 120, they caught up to another slower Trick Truck that wouldn’t move over, even with the Racing Trax system that alerts all racers that a faster vehicle is approaching behind you to pass. Only decision was to nerf the truck ahead to let them know they needed to get by. In doing so it blew the front fiberglass hood and fenders off the truck but was still attached blocking Kyles field of vision as he drove. He wasn’t about to pullover let alone slow down since he got around the slower truck, so he continued to drive with the hood blocking 90% of his view. He was looking through a small ventilation hole in the hood to see where he was going until it finally gave way and broke off completely. There is always something unexpected and exciting in desert racing.

With zero issues in 162 miles, they pulled into their first scheduled pit stop in Tonopah at pit 5 where they received fuel, fresh rear tires and had a quick once over of the truck. They were back underway and putting time on the trucks behind them both physically and on corrected time. Up to this point they have been leading the race from the very start.

Now mid-day, the outside temps were climbing. Southern Nevada summers are brutal with temps over 110 and this year was one of the hottest. Engine and tranny temps were on the rise due to the lack of aerodynamics of the truck with the missing body panels, so they had to keep an eye on them. They finally leveled out and stabilized thanks to the added protection AMSOIL Synthetic oil in the engine and transmission offers. High outside temps can wreak havoc on trucks and the racers themselves which it did for many others. You can easily see temps inside the cockpit over 120 degrees, then combine that with 2-3 layer race suits and helmets. Drivers and co-drivers endure some of the harshest conditions both mentally and physically.

Putting time on the rest of the class and moving through the slower field of trucks ahead, they pulled into their next scheduled pit stop in Mina at pit 9 which is now 312 miles into the race. Same protocol as the last pit, fuel, rear tires, water, food and then they were back underway. By this point they had a 15-minute lead on 2nd place so they knew they didn’t have to push it too hard, but still keep up a race winning pace.

Leaving Mina, they saw some fluctuations with the alternator output which was concerning at the time but it ended up self-correcting, could have been an issue with silt in the case. Come to find out the internal voltage regulator was having an issue. At the continued pace they were on, they wouldn’t need to use their Rigid Industries LED lights since they would be finishing in daylight, so there wasn’t going to be a higher demand on the electrical system.

Now it was a sprint to the finish through the dust. The next 190 miles is not easy and gets very rocky and tight towards the end. Races are won and lost in the last 20 miles of this race and take many competitors out just with the finish insight.

With zero flats on their General Tire Grabber X3 tires and only a few minor issues throughout the day, the Camburg General Tire Scosche Monster Energy #6188 truck crossed the finish line 1st, with an overall time of 8 hours 35 minutes with a 58.79 mph average speed. With the commanding pace they set, the 2nd place truck finished 28 minutes behind them on corrected time with a 55.8 mph average speed. Not only did Camburg win their race, but they also finished 8th overall when mixed in with the faster Trick Truck and Unlimited Buggy class finishers. They were the 6th truck overall to cross the finish line this year.

For comparison sake, last year’s Vegas to Reno 6100 winner had a slower 55.29 mph average race speed and finished 18th overall. It just goes to show the pace Camburg set this year on course and the caliber of racing they put forth.

“This year we decided to focus on a few of the bigger races that draw the most competition. Qualifying 1st and then winning Vegas to Reno start to finish put the spot light on our team and our KINETIK trucks. Feels good to get the win and show off all the hard work the team and our sponsors put into our racing program.”
– Jerry Zaiden

“Time spent dialing in the FOX shocks with SDG this spring made a significant improvement to the overall balance and handling of the truck. I’m really happy with where the truck is and where we’re at as a team. It’s always awesome to win at this level of racing and we just did that in the longest and hardest race of the series.”
– Jason Campbell

Now with the race over, Camburg is already tearing the truck down and getting it ready for the next event. Preliminary everything still looks good and could go another 200 miles. The FK Rod End bearings are tight as can be, the K&N filter will get a quick wash and the Magnaflow mufflers a quick polish. Then the truck will be on display at the upcoming Offroad Expo in Pomona, CA on September 28-29.

Their next race will be the Best in the Desert Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic October 10-13 which is a 2-day race format so it makes for some very exciting racing. Then it’s off to the SEMA Tradeshow November 5-8.

Camburg would like to thank all their sponsors, team members and fellow racers for the opportunity to be racing in this class and series. Best in the Desert puts on the highest quality and well-organized events out there today.
