Legendary off-road vehicle builder Jimco Racing steps up to become a supporting sponsor of the California 300!
Jimco Racing will be represented onsite at the midway off-road festival among tons of off-road companies at the start/finish of the inaugural California 300 parallel to Lenwood Road just north of Barstow Main while Jimco vehicles will once again contest the Great American Off-Road Race in Primm on Friday and Saturday across multiple Unlimited and Limited classes.
“I am super excited to be a part of this new race. It’s important for the industry and culture to have a major desert race here in Southern California. This is where the off-road industry was born and where we have the largest concentration of off-road brands. This is our Indy 500!” stated Jimco CEO and racer Robbie Pierce.
“Jimco has been iconic within the world of off-road racing for nearly half a century, and we’re incredibly excited to welcome them to the inaugural California 300 as a supporting sponsor. Robbie Pierce has always supported our vision to grow and evolve the sport and culture of off-road racing,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “With their recent reveal of the New Fastball Jimco “Dragon” All-Wheel Drive Trophy Truck, it shows their commitment to the evolution of the sport. Be sure to visit them at the California 300 midway off-road festival to learn why your next racecar should come from Jimco!”

Pierce is also an Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame Inductee for his innovations and commitment to safety in off-road motorsports, and also developed mass-production methods for welding titanium golf club heads and aerospace components.
