Lotus, CA (June 7 2012) – Gomez Brothers Racing LLC (GBR), a two month old Ultra 4 off-road racing team entered and finished their first race at the western regional “Cinco De Baja” in New Mexico last month. Wanting to build on the momentum from the finish, the team turned their attention to round one of the Nor Cal Rock Racing Championship Series. The Nor Cal Rock Racing Series is an important three-race series because the top two racers will earn highly coveted spots in the 2013 King of the Hammers race.
JP Gomez turned some heads and ran away from the field during the race at Prairie City SVRA near Sacramento, CA. JP and co-driver Todd Treat ran a smooth and flawless race, posting the teams first pro 4400 Class win. Todd kept JP calm and hitting his marks in and out of the turns and through the rock obstacles. “BF Goodrich tires and King Shocks did their jobs, hooking up in the rocks and kept us out in front of the entire main event, lapping cars deep into the field” said co-driver Todd Treat.
Next up for the newly formed GBR team is a second race car for brother Marcos. A full schedule of racing including the remainder of the Nor Cal Rock Racing Championship Series, 4 Wheel Parts Glen Helen Grand Prix, American Rock Sports Challenge, Texana Ranch Ultra 4 Championship, and possibly Vegas to Reno.
