ICON SPONSORED ALEXANDER MOTORSPORTS GETS 3RD AT THE 2012 PARKER 425Posted on February 9, 2012
Alexander Motorsports debuted their new look on February 4th, 2012 as one of the official KC HiLiTES race vehicles. Alexander Motorsports will be racing the 2012 Best in the Desert series with help from the following new partners: KC HiLiTES, ICON Vehicle Dynamics featuring the new ZETA bypass shock, Bill Shapley Racing Engines & Transmissions, FK Rod Ends, Torco Advanced Lubricants, K&N Filters, MSD Ignition, Mickey Thompson Tires, BTR Wheels, Getpipped.com, Patrick Sign’s, and Butch’s Speed Shop.
Steve Alexander and Gavin Ferguson started the race second out of five in Class 5000. At the end of the first lap they were running in third position. The car was working phenomenal. The new ICON Vehicle Dynamics bypass shocks were holding strong and kept the ride smooth. The team suffered a 20 minute set back during the second lap due to a nut coming loose on the lower link pin. Once the crew from Las Vegas Dissemination identified and rectified the problem Steve and Gavin continued to chase the leaders. At the end of the second lap Steve Alexander was so impressed with the handling of the car he made the decision to stay in the car and drive the last lap. With the sun going down and the visibility down to zero they clipped a rock with the rear tire suffering their only flat for the entire race 20 miles from start/finish. Finally the sun went down and they were able to use their KC HIDs to light up the desert and bring it to the finish. Just under 10 hours and 425 miles later the brand new Bill Shapley racing engine with Torco oil never missed a beat, no matter how deep the washes or silt got, the 2332cc had the torque to get the job done and giving them the third place podium position. Steve said “the car rode so smooth, I could do one more lap”, obviously he owes that to the ICON Vehicle Dynamics ZETA shocks.
