As the sun painted the clouds with red and orange over Hammertown, the 11th annual Nitto King of the Hammers powered by Optima Batteries came to life with the low rumble of V8 engines. Race cars had to be staged by 6:30 a.m. for an 8:00 a.m. start. Pit crews scattered to one of three remote pits along race course as the cars lined up in staging areas. Drivers chatted and joked about the adventure that was about to commence as their navigators ensured the race course and notes were on their navigation systems.
Simi Valley, CA – Coming off of a second place finish at the 2011 Griffin King of the Hammers Tony Pellegrino and the GenRight team were ready to get back in the seat and go racing again. As race day grew closer the anticipation continued to grow. It all started with the results from the starting position draw where Tony drew the first starting position. This was great way to start the Best in the Desert Silver State 300 considering how far in the back of the pack they had started at the King of the Hammers.
When the green flag dropped on race day there were 32 Ultra 4 cars that started the race. Being the first Ultra 4 car off of the line was a huge advantage for the GenRight team, allowing them to stay ahead of the competition and not have to worry about passing in the dust. The team was able to run a flawless day with no issues on the car and only having to stop in the pits for fuel and a cold drink of water. Tony Pellegrino and co-driver Tony Fiori navigated the GenRight Ultra 4 car through a variety of terrain on race day that included high speed desert sections, tight mountain roads, water crossings, power line roads, washes, fresh cut trails and miles and miles of the infamous Nevada silt beds.
Simi Valley, CA – In staying true to their heritage GenRight Off-Road has just released the new Crawler Gas Tank for the Jeep Cherokee XJ. Now you can explore the back country with the confidence of a GenRight gas tank!
The Crawler tank for the XJ will bolt right into any XJ Cherokee and includes an extra five gallons of gas! Giving you a 25 gallon capacity, now you will be able to stay out on the trail longer without worrying about running out of gas!
The tank was specifically designed to hold an EXTRA 5 gallons of fuel AND still fit in the stock location without drilling any new holes! This tank bolts in to the rear under area to replace your stock gas tank for those long distance trips and keeps your center of gravity low by carrying the extra fuel down low in the stock location and eliminating the need for extra cans on your spare tire carrier.
The XJ gas tank has the same relation to the axle as the factory gas tank and occupies the exact same space as the stock tank. Don’t worry about it fitting with your lift kit or larger wheels and tires. It’s simple, if your suspension lift & axle combination works with your stock tank, it will work with the GenRight Crawler tank too.
