PAG And Fly-N-Hi Team Up At The King Of The Hammers Off Road Race

Performance Automotive Group teamed up with Jeremy Hammer and Fly-N-Hi Performance at the King Of The Hammer's Off Road Race last week. Sporting the Trail Master sponsor logo on the number 75 race truck,  Jeremy Hammer started in 43rd position during the race and ran hard until they began to have driveline problems. Hammer made it to the BFGoodrich pit where a pair of new axles were being delivered and installed. Working feverishly to get the replacement axles into the truck, the team didn't make the checkpoint cut-off time and did not finish. 

Only 43 out of 100 competitors were able to finish the Griffin King Of The Hammer's Race. Jeremy Hammer and Fly-N-Hi Performance still put out a tremendous effort and displayed the courage and tenacity it takes to compete in one of the toughest one-day, off-road races in the country.

While team Fly-N-Hi were challenging the California desert, Performance Automotive Group staff manned the Trail Master/OR-Fab Wrecking Ball Pit, located near mile marker 115. PAG President Steve Rezek, along with Mikel Sitterly, Daniel Maier, and Chris Faustmann were ready to take on any major repairs that the racers may have required. Included in their arsenal of tools was a Plasma Cutter, grinders, air-tools, Praxair welding equipment and just about anything any race team may have needed to repair their vehicle's suspension or chassis. While there weren't many teams that needed their assistance, the Trail Master/OR-Fab Wrecking Ball pit did manage to help one race team, by fabricating a fuel line adaptor for an electronic fuel pump.
