    Default The 4405 MFS Race-a-Thon

    The 4405 MFS Race-a-Thon
    by Kurt Schnieder (playing Jerry Lewis) & Del Albright

    PLEDGE NOW to Benefit Land Use with the World's Largest Off-Road Race in the US


    For the King of the Hammers 2010, we are taking pledges to land-use organizations depending on how far the 4405 land-use buggy makes it in the race! Just like a pledge drive high school kids do at school for sports fundraisers!! This is an awesome, hard-core desert and rock race, where only a few are left standing. 15,000 to 20,000 people could be on-hand to witness this event next month. Del plans to be there representing the Access Army.

    YOU pick the amount pledged per mile and YOU pick the organization to donate too!
    Read the whole story and get the details here. You can support the Access Army by supporting BlueRibbon Coalition (or your organization of choice fighting for access) here: http://jeepndel.blogspot.com/2010/01/land-use-pledge-for-king-of-hammers.html

    Motorsport Fabrication Services Promotes Access and Responsible Recreation
    Team sets industry standard for promoting access in Griffin King of the Hammers race
    POCATELLO, ID (March 2)--The BlueRibbon Coalition is proud to report huge success in land use at the Griffin King of the Hammers (KOH) race. With two vehicles in the 2010 Griffin King of the Hammers race, Motorsport Fabrication Services (MFS) of Lincoln, California, may not have won the race, but they insured that wheeled motorized access won big. With a race-a-thon lead by MFS and BFGoodrich Tires driver Travis Carpenter in his 4405 "Land-use" race vehicle, MFS managed to raise nearly $20,000 for various land-use organizations.
    Much like a walk-a-thon, for every mile made by Travis Carpenter and co-driver Dan Trout in the 4405 "land-use" race vehicle, individuals pledged a per mile contribution in the grueling 135-mile race. Pledges were made to any land use organization of the contributor's choice.
    Travis Carpenter managed 98 miles before a faulty fuel pump took him out of the 135-mile race. The second MFS vehicle, the 4407, managed to finish a respectable 28th. The biggest contributors in the race-a-thon were the Tin Bender's 4x4 club, who pledged on their own vehicles in the race, raising $5,500, and 4WheelParts Wholesalers, who matched the Tin Bender's pledges for a grand total of $11,000 to the BlueRibbon Coalition raising more than half of the total amount collected.
    Billed as the "toughest one-day off-road race on the planet," the Griffin King of the Hammers (www.kingofthehammers.com) has quickly become one of the biggest events in off-roading. With a mix of go-fast desert racing and hard-core rock crawling, the endurance race has attracted some of the most accomplished drivers in rock-sports competitions. Local papers reported 28,000 people were involved in the race, vendor show, fans and crews.
    "I am so proud of Travis and his MFS land use buggy," said Del Albright, BlueRibbon Coalition Ambassador who attended KOH. "His club, the Rock Zombies, supported him as well, along with a passel of friends and land use advocates like Kurt Schneider of Pirate4x4.com."
    Motorsport Fabrication Services (http://mfs-ca.com) is a full fabrication shop which builds and customizes many different types of vehicles, from hot-rods and rock-crawlers to daily drivers.
