BILSTEIN saw strong results from its team of sponsored racers at this year’s King of the Hammers off-road motorsports event, the company announced.
Doug Mittag, fitted with Bilstein’s new Black Hawk Powersports UTV shocks on his Polaris Pro R, crossed the line first and placed second on corrected time in the Toyo UTV Desert Challenge on Saturday.
On Monday’s Short Course, Ryan Beat took first place in the Pro 2 Unlimited competing on BILSTEIN shocks while Doug Mittag came in third.
Other BILSTEIN-sponsored racers who had strong showings include Brian Deegan, who took fourth place in the Can-Am Pro-Stock Turbo UTV class on Thursday and placed 17th overall.
“We couldn’t be more proud of our racers’ achievements this year as well as the performance of our new Black Hawk Powersports dampers,” said Steve Seggern, head of marketing & powersports for BILSTEIN. “And let’s not forget thanking Dave Cole’s group for putting on the most spectacular event in off-road racing. We’re excited and looking forward to continuing our re-entry into desert motorsports, a winning legacy that dates back almost 50 years in North America.”
BILSTEIN-backed racers competed on the company’s 9200 Series Bypass, 9200 Coilover, 7100 and Black Hawk Powersports shock absorbers.
