"Black Rhino/Racer X Sponsored Athlete Cody Rahders Wins His Second Consecutive Production 1000 Class Championship"

El Cajon, CA, October 14, 2015 - Driving his Polaris sponsored RZR XP 1000, Black Rhino Performance/Racer X Motorsports sponsored athlete Cody Rahders finished 2nd place in Round 7 of the Lucas Oil Regional Series and won his second consecutive Production 1000 class title.

After successfully winning, then defending titles in both the RZR XP and Production 1000 classes, this makes Cody’s fourth title in three years at the Regionals and seventh since he started racing UTV’s in 2007.

Starting in the qualifier Cody didn’t take any chances. He ran easy laps where he qualified third for the main, however, he missed post qualification tech and was moved to last place (16th) for the start of the main. “Brain fade. I was thinking about how I should race going into the main and drove right past tech, the penalty made the decision for me." Cody recalled.

Starting in last place for the Production 1000 main event, as the pack pushed wide into turn one, Cody took the low line and passed four cars right off the start on his way to the front. By the end of lap one he was eighth, end of lap two he was in fourth, and by lap six he was in second where he began to pressure the leader.

As the laps wore down Cody made a move for the lead but with near contact in a couple of the turns he decided to wait for the last lap, ride the leader’s rear bumper and hopefully force a mistake. The mistake never came and Cody finished nose to tail with the race winner over the finish line.

Cody continued, “The most fun I’ve had in a long time! Starting last was a relief, I would have started third but instead of playing defense for 12 laps I got to drive relaxed, work the pack, and hope my momentum carried me to the win. Once the second place in point’s car broke I wanted the win but didn’t have it anymore so I just kept the pressure on the leader hoping to force a mistake. In the end the title was more important.”
