Offroad champion and Canyon Lake resident Sara Price will kick off her 2019 race season at the notoriously difficult King of The Hammers event on Feb. 3 in her Polaris RZR XP 1000 Turbo-S. Sara, along with co-driver and fellow Canyon Lake resident Erica Sacks, will tackle the UTV class for the fourth year in a row.
The race combines desert racing speed with technical rock crawling challenges and draws competitors from across the world and from almost all motorsport disciplines to Johnson Valley, California, each February.
Backing up her 2018 Trophy Truck Spec class rookie effort, Sara is set to race a full SCORE International season piloting the number 204 Trophy Truck Spec.
With a personal best 2nd place at the Tijuana Desert Challenge, Sara is ready to take on her season as a championship top contender.
Sara recently announced her new partnership with 4 Wheel Parts (4WP) as the Title Sponsor for her 2019 program. ‘’I couldn’t be more excited to partner with 4WP,” said Sara. “Being associated with the most respected and largest retailer and installer of off-road accessories along with being such an incredible brand full of enthusiastic people, the future looks very bright for our goals ahead to drive our 4WP machines to the finish line first.’’
In 2012, the versatile competitor switched to 4 Wheels and started racing UTVs where she campaigned the WORCS Series and the Lucas Oil Regional Series.
In 2015, Sara became the first American UTV team to compete in the toughest all-female sporting event on the planet, the Rally Aïcha des Gazelles in Morocco, Africa. That same year, Sara went on to finish the Terracross Championship undefeated to take the Women’s Championship.
In 2016, Sara took on six races in the Stadium Super Truck Series and became the first woman ever to lead laps in that championship.
Named the 2016 Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame Rising Star, Sara’s racing career started on dirt and she went on to join Kawasaki as the first factory-supported female racer. She began racing dirt bikes at the age of eight and collected 19 amateur titles and earned a medal in Women’s Super X at the 2010 X Games. She holds the record as the most winning female amateur to date.
You can find Sara today competing with RPM Racing in a Trophy Truck Spec in Baja in the SCORE International Desert Series. In her rookie year in 2018, Sara achieved a very impressive 5th place ironwomaning the Prestigious Baja 500.
When she isn’t racing, Sara works as a stunt professional, a host at special events and on camera as a spokeswoman. For more information about Sara Price, visit sarapricemx.com.
