Poison Spyder Customs announces a 4-point plan for involvement in next year's King of the Hammers races, with special emphasis on the brand new "Stock" and "Modified" classes. "We had great success last year with the JKOH racer," says Poison Spyder's president Larry McRae, "but we're excited about the opportunities that are opening up with these new classes." Through the following initiatives Poison Spyder Customs plans to fully support the new classes, as well as provide assistance to as many class participants as possible:


Poison Spyder's "BFH Racer" Entry in Modified Class

Poison Spyder Customs will put its full weight behind its own racing effort in the new Modified class of King Of The Hammers. Champion rockcrawler and veteran King of the Hammers driver Larry McRae will pilot an all new race vehicle purpose-built for the 2012 KOH. Based on the current model Jeep JK Wrangler, the new racer will be dubbed the "BFH Racer", after Poison Spyder's proprietary "Built For the Hammers" branded product line. Product manufacturers and other organizations interested in participating in the BFH Racer project are encouraged to contact Poison Spyder to discuss co-marketing opportunities. Last year's JKOH build was a huge promotional boon to all who were involved, and the BFH project looks to be even better!​

Poison Spyder Seeks Marketing Partner to compete in Stock Class
In addition to the BFH Racer in the Modified class, Poison Spyder seeks to partner with a second driver and vehicle in the new Stock class of the 2012 King of the Hammers. The Stock class will be a great showcase for the Poison Spyder product line, and the company is seeking marketing proposals from dedicated drivers and teams looking to competitively field a Jeep Wrangler in this new class. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Poison Spyder Customs via email at [email protected]oisonspyder.com for more information and to submit proposals.​

Poison Spyder To Offer Racer Pricing to King Of The Hammers Participants
In an effort to encourage widespread participation in the two new classes, Poison Spyder will be offering Racer Pricing to qualified race teams intending to compete in the 2012 King of the Hammers and other major rock sports events in the coming season. Details of the program will be published soon, but in broad strokes it will consist of a tiered discount structure on Poison Spyder products based on event participation and level of Poison Spyder product representation.​

Poison Spyder Contingency Program for King Of The Hammers
As a way to reward all participants, even those not otherwise partnered with Poison Spyder Customs, the company will be implementing a generous contingency program for the 2012 King of the Hammers. Class winners sporting designated Poison Spyder stickers, as well as Poison Spyder products on their race vehicle, will earn a substantial cash payout from Poison Spyder Customs. Details of the Contingency Program will be published soon.​

With these four separate programs, Poison Spyder Customs seeks to be the premiere presence among Jeep aftermarket manufacturers at the 2012 King of the Hammers. "We're involved in King of the Hammers for two reasons," McRae explains, "First of all, its damned fun and we couldn't imagine being anywhere else on those dates. But just as importantly, there's no better showcase for Poison Spyder Customs, what our company stands for, and the products we manufacture."

Very cool to see the King of the Hammers bring a part of the race back down to the level of us mere mortals and cheers for PSC for going above and beyond to support it!:beer:

I was so excited for these new classes until I saw you have to have the same safety mods as the big boys. Man if I could afford to set my JK up I'd be on it! Being my DD and still paying on it is kinda in the way of racing it:shaking: Need to win the lotto damn it!

Larry, it's awsome to see you guys getting out there, thanks for looking out for your customers!

The JKOH was designed to meet the safety requirements, but with the ability to put it back to 'stock'. The problem was...it's too fun in its current configuration so we never changed it back.

Great opportunity to develop the Poison Spyder JK KOH skid system.
We had one on the JKOH last year, but we're making a few changes for this year. Because the rules require a fuel cell, (factory gas tank is removed) the KOH skids are different than the skid system we're developing for production. Both are very tough though.
Thanks,

Is there a Lazer-fit JK cage coming out soon to fill that requirement?

It’s our pleasure. This is something we’re passionate about. This event is a great way to test and prove our product and we want everyone to have a chance to take part in it. It will most likely be the most grueling yet most fun thing most of us ever get to do.
