UTV Division Manager Jason Divis and General Manager Greg Wells to Drive
GARDEN GROVE, CA JANUARY 21, 2012: Raceline Wheels Jason Divis and Greg Wells will be alternating driving duties of a 2013 Arctic Cat in the Production 1000 class at the 2013 HCR UTV King of the Hammers race. “What better way to test and prove the strength of the Raceline UTV wheels and tires than to race them in the hardest UTV race known to date,” said Jason Divis, Raceline UTV Division Manager. “We trail ride and go to Glamis all the time, so being in the rocks will be totally different and exciting.”
Raceline recently released the new A71 Mamba beadlock wheel. It is a true beadlock that features a forged billet aluminum outer ring, 20 bolt beadlock system and enduro inner lip technology. The A71-Mamba is arguably the best looking beadlock on the market.
Raceline Wheels also produces the Raceline MT Tire specifically for side-by-sides. This aggressive tire comes in 25” to 30” options. All the Raceline SXS Wheels and Tires are available through most powersports dealers.
“We bought the Arctic Cat basically for marketing purposes, to display at shows and continually test our wheels, I don’t think we ever intended to race it,” said Divis. “We just decided to do this a couple weeks ago so I have been gathering up parts and we installed most of them last weekend. We will only have the week of the event to pre-run.” The list of parts going on the Arctic Cat is extensive! Arctic Cat brand Aluminum Front Bumper, Aluminum Rear Bumper, Half Windshield, Plastic Roof, Shoulder Bag and Trunknet. The PCI Arctic Cat Radio Mount will hold the Rugged Radio with Intercom and King Shocks for ultimate suspension. ProArmor has delivered Doors, Aluminum Roof, 3” 5-point Seat Belt Harness, Harness Bar, Passenger Handle and Quickshot spare tire holder. PRP Seats, Limiter straps and Window Nets will add safety. A DP Clutch Kit, Clutch Fan, Vents and Winch Mount for the TJM Winch will be installed. Delta Lights, a Lowrance GPS and more items will be installed as they become clearly necessary over the next week. ‘LIKE’ the Raceline Wheels Facebook page to watch the build www.facebook.com/racelinewheels. Jason Divis and Greg Wells will be sporting brand new Simpson Race Suits.
Raceline Wheels Arctic Cat will be on display in Vendor Row alongside many other vehicles and wheels for Jeeps, UTV’s, SUV’s, Trucks and Cars. Raceline will be in HammerTown the entire week for any technical questions for rock crawlers, tow rigs, trailers, UTVs and race vehicles.
