So, as many of you know, my husband David, our son Dylan and I have started a UTV race team called Redneck Edition. A lot of people ask us about the name and why we would pick that. I guess my husband was at work and they were talking about one of the truck brands that was called “something-edition.” He told the guys that his would have been called the “Redneck Edition” and that’s why it stuck. Might have something to do with the truck he drives, not sure:
Most people in today’s world put negative definitions to the word “redneck”. We remember it as meaning those that worked hard, and ended up getting a sunburn from their labor. Just like our slogan says “Work Hard to Play Harder.” I found this a few months ago to further explain our reasoning behind the name:
My husband loves off-road racing and has always wanted to be a part of it. We had bought a Polaris RzR 900XP awhile back, and were so enjoying it on the mountain trails, he had the idea to convert it into a race vehicle and be able to have fun with our son on the race track.
We found out about a new series in Arizona called “Arizona Offroad Promotions.” They were a group that held races for UTV’s, motorcycles and quads…sometimes even trucks. It sounded like fun and was one that would actually fit our budget. There are some others that just cost way too much to even think about joining. This one had great rates and would be somewhat local to where we live. Granted, for most, we’d have to drive a way to get there, since we’re in the mountains.
I wanted to start a blog series on each of the races to keep you up to date on what was happening and also help spread the word about our amazing sponsors. We went around to a lot of local businesses and just asked if they wanted to be a part of the team. Coming from a small town, you know a lot of people, and so many were willing to help. It’s been amazing to be able to work with them all, and to help tell others about their amazing places.
So, what I want to do, is write up a post for each race that we go to. Share photos, share our experience and just keep you up to date on what is going on. I’ll probably keep this intro, just to keep people up to date, who have never seen the posts before (so if you’re coming back, just skip it). Be sure to check out all of our social media pages, to keep up as well. Thanks to everyone is backing us on this endeavor. It’s been fun to spend time as a family, enjoying what we love to do, and also for me (as a wife and mom) to see my husband and our son enjoying themselves….well, that’s when Dylan isn’t telling David to slow down, and things like that! ha/ha
