April 13, 2010 (San Bernardino, CA)—SoCal SuperTrucks and Ricky James are prepared and ready to race this weekend, April 17th and 18th, as they look to defend the success they experienced in 2009 at Speedworld in Surprise, AZ where they came away with a 1st and 2nd place finish during rounds 9 and 10 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Race Series.
James and the team have recovered from the tough race weekend they experienced in Las Vegas this past March, and look to start a Championship run at the first points-awarded race this weekend.
Ricky was paralyzed from the chest down in a motocross racing accident in March of 2005. SoCal SuperTrucks outfitted the Super Lite race truck with hand controls that allow him to control the throttle, brake, clutch and shifting with his left hand while leaving his right hand free to steer, pull tear-off’s and push the button necessary to communicate with race crew members. In 2009, Ricky made his rookie and race debut in the SoCal SuperTrucks SuperLite, capturing 5 out of 6 wins.
“I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel again this weekend,” said Ricky James. “We’ve had more time to prepare since Las Vegas so I’m pretty confident we’ll get the job done.”
The team would like to thank current 2010 team sponsors, which include Bully Dog Technologies, BFGoodrich, Walker Evans, Rockwell Time, K&N Filters, Alpinestars and AOKNick.org.
