BITD 6100 Class
Best in the Desert’s 6100 class mandates a sealed V8 engine, but there are no rules on which suspension has to be run. “We were the first team to run FOX’s 4.0 shocks on our truck this season and now they’re the standard in the 6100 class,” explained 6100 champion Jason Ruane.
SCORE International Series Class 1
South of the border, Cody Parkhouse took home the SCORE International Series Championship in Class 1 for the second year in a row. “My father Brian has been on FOX for years and we won’t run any other shock,” said Parkhouse.
FOX dominated the TORC Series, with FOX-equipped trucks winning all Pro 2WD and Pro Lite races this season. Bryce Menzies won his third Pro 2WD championship in a row in the series, while veteran Johnny Greaves clinched the Pro 4WD title. “Speeds keep increasing every year,” said Menzies. “My shock setup allows me to carry more speed through every turn, opening up the gap on the competition.”
In the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, FOX–equipped Pro Buggies took the checkered flag in every round of racing. “I have used FOX shocks for the past four seasons in Pro Buggy, and we ended this last season with back-to-back championships,” said Pro Buggy winner Steven Greinke. “The track support we received from FOX was outstanding—anytime we needed help with tuning the team at FOX was right there to help get us on the podium.”

Rob MacCachren credited much of his LOORRS Pro2 championship to FOX. “I have raced on FOX exclusively since 2000,” MacCachren shared. “They know what it takes to win and are constantly improving their product to make me faster.”
Beyond the nuts and bolts, FOX offers unmatched technical support and service, whether rebuilding shocks between races, performing valving adjustments in testing, or proving expertise on race day.
“Having the right suspension in Ultra4 Racing is one of the most important factors,” said 2013 Ultra4 series champion and multiple King of the Hammers winner Shannon Campbell. ““I’ve been running FOX for over a decade and have won multiple races and several championships with their help.”
