Team Safecraft to Battle King of the Hammers
World's Toughest One-day Offroad Race
Jason Scherer, Casey Scherer and Pat O'Keefe to Divide and Conquer
Safecraft Safety Equipment’s Off-Road team is pleased to announce that Pat O’Keefe, Jason Scherer and Casey Scherer will race the King of the Hammers (KOH) today thru next Saturday, February 10 in Johnson Valley, CA. Jason Scherer (#76) will be racing the 4400 Class while Pat O’Keefe (#4923) and Casey Scherer (#79) will enter the UTV Class in what is considered the world’s toughest one-day Offroad race that combines desert racing and rock crawling over challenging terrain.
KOH is unlike any other event we go to with a week of events leading up to the main race. It’s non-stop action. I’m so excited to push myself and our car to the limit. I am stoked to bring Safecraft back to contend for the win. It’s going to be a great week and a great kick-off to the new Triple Crown of Off-Road so we get a quick turn-around to the Mint 400 and hope to keep the momentum going after winning the Nationals last year.
Jason’s 4400 car is equipped with Safecraft’s fully automatic AT10 system and multiple portable handheld PB3 extinguishers to meet unpredictable safety demands.
No doubt KOH will be challenging. Despite racing in numerous off-road desert races, including Baja, this is my first KOH. I’m excited for the challenge of the rocks.
Pat’s UTV is equipped with Safecraft’s Model UTV, a fully automatic system designed exclusively for UTVs, coupled with a portable handheld PB3 extinguisher with a quick-response flip lever handle. Both are mounted to rollbars with machined billet brackets.
I’m really excited to get our Can Am X3 out into the rocks and desert at the 2018 King of the Hammers!
Casey Scherer won first place in the 2017 MetalCloak Ultra 4 Stampede in the 4900/UTV Class. Casey’s Can Am is equipped with Safecraft’s Model UTV fully automatic system and PB3 portable extinguisher— check out the installed systems during KOH in the pit area.
