Jason-Scherer-Stampede-5-23-13DANVILLE, CA - Jason Scherer is antsy and excited to race this weekends Ultra4 4 Wheel Parts Glen Helen Grand Prix race coming off the NorCal Stampede Win.  “I am excited to go to Glen Helen and represent Rubicon Express in the backyard of 4 Wheel Parts Corporate headquarters, both have been a great support of the team this season!” said Jason Scherer, driver of the Rubicon Express #76 car.  “I have been out testing twice since the Stampede and I have got some things figured out finally, let’s just say that.”

Fishmouth Fabworks has spent a lot of time prepping the car after the Stampede with Brian Farris setting up new differentials for this race.  Fox Shox built custom shocks for the IFS car and Pac Racing Springs complimented the setup with new springs.  Scherer will be trying some new parts from PSC to develop even better steering for the Ultra4 series.  “We are grooving up the Nitto Tires and are going to be trying out some new Tireballs that are designed for short course this weekend, we are the guinea pigs but I’m confident that they will be solid,” said Jason Scherer.  “The whole team has really come together over the last few weeks including my brother Casey Scherer, Greg Hussey, John Webb, Ben Ratto, Ole Stortroen, Chad & Brett Lujan among others.  The fun part was having racers that aren’t prepping their cars for this race come over and help.  They knew that ‘this bolt needed to be locktited’ and ‘that needs to be marked’.  It was really awesome and appreciated, I couldn’t have done it without them.”
