"Black Rhino/RacerX Motorsports' Athlete Cody Rahders Takes Two Podiums at the Lucas Oil Regionals"

El Cajon, Ca.- September 3, 2015 –Black Rhino/RacerX Motorsports sponsored athlete Cody Rahders wins Round 6 of the Lucas Oil Regional Series Production 1000 class and takes over the points lead going into the last round. Cody also took the opportunity to debut his 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo and race it to a 2nd place in the Unlimited UTV class.

In Production 1000 Cody qualified 2nd and with the inversion he started on the pole. When the green flag flew he immediately jumped out front leading laps 1 through 10. On lap 11 the 2nd place car came into turn 4 hot getting under Cody and taking over the lead.  It would be short lived as Cody used the exact same move in turn 4 the following lap to retake the lead and the win.

In the Unlimited UTV class Cody qualified  3rd and lined up in the 2nd row in his RZR XP Turbo. On the green he immediately pulled into 2nd and then was leading by lap three but it was short lived; he began to have possible fuel issues.  By lap 4 he pulled, slowed and was passed by 1st through 4th but as the car recovered he was able to get back up to 2nd where stayed put to finish out the race.

“Except for a Sparks Racing exhaust pipe and a K&N air filter this car is bone stock; I didn’t even take out the passenger seat. The motor is fast and pulls super hard but the suspension is setup for play in the desert, not short course racing. I wanted to see if I could win with it. Instead of topping off the fuel we ran a half tank and I think it was pulling air into the fuel system through the un-rhythm section. I changed my driving style to make up for it and finished it out in 2nd place. We learned a lot; if we took the time to develop a short course setup nothing would be able to touch the Turbo.” Cody said.

“I also wanted to say thank you to Black Rhino. The owner, Kenny Osborn, lets us use one of his buildings as our race shop and he also pulled a race legal cage out of his inventory to put on the Turbo car so we could race. Thanks Kenny.”

Cody's next race will be at Hay Days for rounds 3 & 4 of the Terracross Series in his Fox Shocks sponsored Polaris RZR XP 1000.
