The King of the Hammers was back in Johnson Valley, California and brought forth over 530 teams to compete in these races. Although, KOH 2024 was not originally on our race schedule, the MagnaFlow + Camburg team decided to head to Johnson Valley following our Parker 400 results. 

DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING

After facing power steering issues at the Parker 400, the MagnaFlow and Camburg team immediately went to work. We assembled a dream team of people and companies to find a solution ASAP. The solution? Revamping the entire power steering system using some new and exciting products just breaking into the off-road realm.

While we weren’t planning on racing King of the Hammers, we wanted to test the new power steering in race conditions before the upcoming Mint 400. So, we packed up and decided to test the revamped setup in the T2 Spec Truck race at King of the Hammers. This was also perfect timing to test out our new Camburg monobloc racing brake calipers, which we’ve had in development. 

THE PROLOGUE RACE – SATURDAY

The King of the Hammers Desert Challenge spans two days, featuring a prologue race on Saturday and the main race on Sunday. Kicking off the prologue race, Kyle Jergensen took on the course, a mix of tighter uphill rocky sections at the beginning then opening up to the higher speed desert terrain. Kyle threw down a fast lap and charged to the end to qualify 2nd with a time of 00:31:51 just 10 seconds behind the 1st place T2 qualifier. The new power steering and brake calipers worked flawlessly out of the gate and we were ready for Sunday’s race.

T2 SPEC TRUCK RACE – SUNDAY

On Sunday, starting 6th, Kyle and co-driver Shawn quickly advanced taking the lead in their class. Navigating through the challenging terrain and battling dust, the team never wavered, crossing the line and securing a race finish. With the combined times between both races, the team was crowned the King of the Hammers Desert Challenge T2 Spec truck winner! Their time also put them 3rd overall, factoring in the Unlimited trucks and buggies.

The team would like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors including, The Beast Unleashed, Scosche, Sig Sauer, 5.11 Tactical, KMC Wheels, Rigid Industries, Bully Dog, Decked, Optima Batteries, BF Goodrich, Rugged Radios, Scrubblade, Steel-It, FK Rod Ends, and R3Di.

NEXT UP, THE MINT 400 

Now it’s time to get the MagnaFlow + Camburg truck torn apart and prepped for the upcoming Unlimited Off-Road Racing’s iconic Mint 400, March 6th-8th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The MagnaFlow Group’s brands Camburg Engineering and MagnaFlow have come on board the newly formed Unlimited Off-Road Racing program as series sponsors.

“We are thrilled to have Camburg and MagnaFlow partner with us for the 2024 season!” said Unlimited Off-Road Racing CEO Matt Martelli.  “Camburg has been one of the leading brands in high-end suspension systems. They race what they sell and have been a part of off-road racing culture for over two decades. For 2024 they are fielding a Camburg-built Unlimited Spec Truck with championship driver Kyle Jergensen behind the wheel which will undoubtedly prove to be a championship combo. MagnaFlow has a tremendous brand with a global reach and has been making the best products in the category for over four decades. We are excited to work with them to unlock the value of off-road racing with their brands and products.”

In December of 2022 the MagnaFlow Group acquired Camburg Engineering, diversifying their portfolio beyond its traditional business.  A leader in performance exhaust and emissions control products, the MagnaFlow Group extended their reach into suspension. These two iconic brands now take their next steps together, as they take part in the Unlimited Off-Road Racing series.

“The Martellis and I have always shared a common vision of bringing off-road racing to the masses. Now being a part of the MagnaFlow Group we can support the future and growth of off-road racing in the United States. Unlimited Off-Road Racing knows how to promote off-road races. Keep your eyes on us, more is coming,” stated MagnaFlow VP of the Camburg Division Jerry Zaiden.

Jason Campbell, MagnaFlow VP of Engineering Camburg Division, stated, “We are excited to be a part of the race community and give back to the space that we use to develop and test our products. When we say race proven we mean it, and racing in the California, Arizona and Nevada deserts gives us the world’s most challenging test bed to truly prove our products.“

“We have a global brand and amazing products, and now we get to activate in off-road culture in an authentic way with off-road racing as the proving ground for our products and technology. Partnering with Unlimited Off-Road Racing is the next stage in the growth of the MagnaFlow group as we move into suspension and beyond. We are also proud to be supported by the best sponsors for our race team including the Beast Unleashed, Scosche Industries, Sig Sauer, 5.11, KMC Wheels, Rigid Industries, Decked, Bully Dog, Optima Battery, Scrubblade, FK Rod Ends, Steel-It and BFGoodrich.” stated MagnaFlow VP of Strategic Business Growth Jeff Hermann.

April 2023 – Camburg Engineering is proud to announce their partnership with BFGoodrich® Tires. When the two leading companies in their respective markets come together, you can only expect stellar results.

Camburg’s fleet of off-road trucks, diesel chase/tow rigs, race trucks, overland vehicles and UTVs, are the perfect platforms to showcase BFG’s assortment of tire sizes and styles. Camburg will be outfitting the majority of their vehicles with BFGoodrich’s All-Terrain T/A® tires in conjunction with KMC and Black Rhino wheels.

BFGoodrich is the leader in desert racing tire innovation and offers the premier tire for off-road racing both stateside and in Baja. With this in mind, it only made sense to bring them on board with Camburg’s racing division and their KINETIK platform of unlimited and spec race trucks. BFGoodrich’s Baja T/A tires are one of the most successful tires used in desert racing.

Not only is Camburg running their tires across the board, they are also an authorized dealer and will be selling and outfitting their customers off-road, overland and racing vehicles with BFGoodrich tires.

“We’re really excited to be a part of the BFG family with their long outstanding history in off-road racing and their involvement in the off-road communities,” said Jerry Zaiden, Camburg Engineering.

“When it comes to off-roading, the tires are important, and so is the suspension,” said Stephen Peters, BFGoodrich North American Brand Director. “Camburg Engineering reputation and capability is continuously proven in tortuous racing, and we’re excited to have this partnership.”

“Our first Camburg race vehicle was a class 1600 desert buggy back in the day running BFG tires, and it’s great to come back full circle,” said Jason Campbell, Camburg Engineering.

The Camburg Kids not only won the M.O.R.E. Transaxle Challenge race out in Barstow, CA. but more importantly they took the Class 1400 Championship for the year. Check out the video recap below along with our full race report and photo gallery.

Coming into the last race of the season, the Camburg Kids had some added pressure on their shoulders being in the points lead in the M.O.R.E “Mojave Offroad Racing Enthusiasts” 1400 class. They knew they had to finish well to wrap up the Championship.

For this event, they mixed it up a little by adding qualifying in the early morning and also splitting up the race into two races on different courses all on the same day. This would make for some exciting fast paced racing and logistics.

2022_CamburgKids_MORE_Trans_01

The team headed out Friday to setup main pit and to pre-run in their Camburg Ford Ranger race truck and in their new Polaris RZR Pro R to get “eyes on” the race course and make any adjustments. This is when the stress level went from 10 to 100. While pre-running they lost fuel pressure and the truck came to a standstill. Unable to get it running they towed it back to main pit and started trouble shooting. The culprit was a failed fuel pump and not having a spare, made it an urgency to find a replacement. The Camburg team was able to find an upgraded Aeromotive A1000 half way between their shop and Barstow so they decided to trailer the race truck back to the shop and fix it there Friday night just in case it needed more attention. With a championship on the line they could not risk any other problems or holdups. They changed the fuel pump and filters, did a system check and she was good to go. They loaded back up and headed out to Barstow … for the 2nd time.

Qualifying Saturday at 6am came quick for the Camburg team. Cody Campbell and Zach Zaiden staged the truck with Cody behind the wheel. They made quick work of the 3-mile course and qualified 2nd for the race just 5 seconds out of 1st place.

2022_CamburgKids_MORE_Trans_02

The team did a quick look over of the truck and they were ready for race #1. Cody and Zach got back in the truck and they were off. Cody set a commanding pace and put down the fastest 1st lap and was already leading by position and time. His 2nd lap (which was also the fastest) was similar to his first and added to their lead in the class. By this point he wanted to stay up front but not risk it all. A Championship is far more important than a race win at the end of the day and they still had another race after this to deal with. He turned it down on the 3rd lap and ran a comfortable race.

They pulled into main pit where Cody and Zach played musical chairs and Zach would get into the driver’s seat and finish the last two laps. They were back under way and made the run to the finish. Zach put down the fastest lap 4 and lap 5 times and they crossed the finish line in 1st place with an 8+ minute lead over 2nd place. They were that much closer to their goals but also knew the day was only halfway over.

2022_CamburgKids_MORE_Trans_04

With a quick once over, they got the truck ready for race #2. Younger brother Corey Campbell would be driving with Kyle co-driving with him. They got the green flag and they were off. Corey hammered down and was in 2nd place after the first lap. He was running a comfortable pace; the truck was happy and they were in a position to win the championship. He kept his cool with his eye on the prize and kept motoring. He was a machine and put down 7 flawless laps all around similar lap times and they crossed the finish line in 2nd place. They took the overall win for the weekend and more importantly earned the 2022 Class 1400 Championship.

“We came up with a game plan and the kids put in the effort all year and came home with multiple wins and a Championship. It’s awesome to see our kids take the reins and achieve their goals.”
 – Jerry Zaiden

“It’s a proud dad moment to see the kids work hard, put in the time and end up on top with their heads held high with what they’ve achieved this year. Very proud of them all and we had a blast doing it as a team.”

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.

The Camburg Kids took 2nd place at the M.O.R.E. 300 race out in Johnson Valley, CA. Check out the video recap below along with our full race report and photo gallery.

With back to back wins and the overall points lead in the M.O.R.E “Mojave Offroad Racing Enthusiasts” 1400 class, the Camburg Kids were ready to get back into the driver’s seat. Their next race was out in Johnson Valley, CA known for the King of the Hammers area, that would start in the afternoon and end in the early night.

The team headed out Friday to setup main pit and to pre-run in their Camburg Ford Ranger race truck and in their new Polaris RZR Pro R to get “eyes on” the race course and make any adjustments. With the amount of monsoonal rain Southern California has seen lately, mother nature made some changes to the desert floor since they were last out there.

For Saturday’s race, Cody Campbell would start with brother Corey co-driving with him. They were off the line and put down a pace to stay out front right away. Having a morning race take place prior, the course was pretty torn up and dusty so they had to stay focused. After the 1st lap they were sitting in 2nd place only 22 seconds behind the leader. They continued the same pace and came into main pit at the end of lap 2 for a driver change and a splash of fuel.

For lap 3 Corey moved over into the driver’s seat with Eric jumping in as co-driver and they set out back on course. Corey ran a similar pace as the 2 laps prior since he was familiar with the course. They were still sitting in 2nd place and this gave the opportunity to show Eric the pace needed to stay out front with Zach Zaiden getting in the following lap. Corey pulled into main pit at the end of the 3rd lap for fuel and would hand it over to Zach to take it to the finish line.

Zach got in the truck for laps 4 and 5 to the finish with Eric co-driving. Lap 4 was pretty uneventful, they were charging hard and still sitting in 2nd place and gained some time on the leader. On the last lap they had an issue with the radiator fans not working. With outside air temps dropping as night fell, the engine was able to run ok when they were moving at a conservative speed to get enough air flow. When they got into the slower tighter terrain the temps would climb. Towards the end of lap 5, they got into a situation where the truck got stuck because it was running hot and under-powered. Thankfully, they were able to get un-stuck and back up and running. Even with those issues they were only 10-15 minutes off their normal lap times.

The Camburg Kids crossed the finish line in 2nd place with an overall time of 5 hours 56 minutes. Not only did they finish on the podium but they extended their overall class championship points lead. They’re all looking forward to wrapping it up in December at the last race of the season out in Barstow, CA.

“Coming into this race the kids were leading in points and our end goal is a class championship. You can easily fall into the trap of just wanting to go fast with tunnel vision and having an issue. Glad to see the kids stick to the game plan and come out with a 2nd place finish and bigger points lead.”
 – Jerry Zaiden

“The kids are finding their groove and pace needed to stay up front without overdriving the truck. We put a plan together and they stuck to it. We added Baja Designs LP6 lights to the roof for this race and they worked great out there on the last lap.”
 
– Jason Campbell

This past weekend the Camburg Kids won the M.O.R.E. Freedom Cup race out at Glen Helen Raceway, CA. Check out the video recap below along with our full race report and photo gallery.

Coming off their race win at the M.O.R.E “Mojave Offroad Racing Enthusiasts” McKenzie’s 250, the Camburg Kids were chomping at the bit to get back in their Class 1400 Camburg Racing Ford Ranger. The next race in the series would be the 2-day Freedom Cup at the infamous Glen Helen Raceway. This was a unique race course with a mixture of motocross jumps, short course corners and some sand washes all mixed into one with a side-by-side start. They would qualify Saturday morning to determine starting position, race Saturday afternoon and then race again Sunday midday.

Cody having a little more short course experience behind the wheel would qualify the truck. With his brother Corey co-driving with him, they did a quick pre-run lap to scope out the course and then they were off. The jumps were big and the corners were slick which is vastly different from open desert racing. They put down a solid qualifying lap with their gut feeling of a top 3 finish. When it was all said and done, the Camburg Kidsqualified 1st in their class and would be in the first group off the line for the afternoon race.

With a quick wipe down and look over, the truck was ready for Day 1’s afternoon race. Cody would be driving with Corey co-driving like earlier and their plan was to run their qualifying pace for 8 full laps. The green flag dropped, Cody was off and they pulled out front right away and into the lead on the iconic Glen Helen banked corner. They focused on the task at hand; to stay out front and run a consistent pace. You can easily over jump or blow a corner and lose positions with a lapse in judgement. The truck was working awesome and they were being smart working their way through slower/lapped traffic. Cody not only put down the fastest lap time of the day in the 1400 class but more importantly won the race with a commanding lead of almost 2 minutes.

Now it was time for Corey to put his money where his mouth is with Cody co-driving with him on Sunday’s Day 2 race. Once again, the General Tires hooked up and gave them the holeshot into the first corner. They pulled ahead and never looked back. The Camburg Kids were having fun and throwing down super consistent lap times. Not only did Corey have the fastest lap of the day but also of the weekend. With that speed he crossed the finish line in 1st place and the Camburg Kids won the overall for the weekend in the 1400 class.

2022_CamburgKids_Win_FreedomCup_SQ

Having missed the 1st race of the season, the Camburg Kids have won the following 2 races in a row and are hungry for another win and now have their sights on the Class Championship. Their next race will be close to 300 miles in Johnson Valley, CA in September which they are already excited for.

“You can’t replace seat time and racing experience and that’s the learning the kids need right now. Fast is smooth and smooth is fast. It’s great to see them win back to back both days but more so to win back to back events.”
 – Jerry Zaiden

“After the last race, we went through the steering system, checked all the fluids and she was ready for battle. Didn’t do a heavy prep on the truck and we raced all weekend on the same tires from the last race. Really happy with the truck right now.”
 
– Jason Campbell

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.
