Johnson Announces Three-Race Off-Road GP Schedule

Recommended Posts

Former CORR champion and multi-time AMA supercross and motocross champion Ricky Johnson has announced a schedule for the 2009 Ricky Johnson Offroad GP presented by Lucas Oil Products.

The three-race series, which will be sanctioned by the United States Auto Club (USAC), and a year-end banquet is scheduled to take place as follows:

  • February 27-28 (Sportsman 27th, Pro 28th)Manzanita Speedway - Phoenix, AZ
  • March 20-21 (Sportsman 20th, Pro 21st)Perris Auto Speedway - Perris, CA
  • October 30-31 (Sportsman 30th, Pro 31st)Las Vegas Motor Speedway - Las Vegas,
  • NV November 1 (Offroad GP Banquet)

The series will also be aired in three one-hour shows on SPEED Channel, with expert commentators Ken Stout and Cameron Steele confirmed as the on-air talent.

Each event will host GP 4, GP 2, GP-Lite, Pro ATV, Superlite and Pro Buggy as professional clases while Single Buggy, UTV, Trophy Karts, Amateur ATV and a Pre-Runner class will be categorized as Sportsman classes, with Sportsman-class points earned at an Offroad GP counting toward the CORR Sportsman Championship as well.

“After speaking with CORR’s President Cissy Baldwin, I feel that the Offroad GP Triple Crown will not conflict with the CORR or WSORR Championship series,” Johnson said in a press release issued by the series. “We have a lot coming up for the inaugural 2009 season! Terrible Herbst will be the host hotel and marketing partner in coordination with their gas stations. We will also be working closely with SEMA for the last round of racing. I would like to thank everyone who supported our first race this past November and look forward to seeing you all in February!”

      2009 Hisun 700.... previous owner did a number of changes. This part is under the driver's seat but not attached  to anything.
      Is this the old fuel pump?
    • By Joel Goldsney
      Wasn't sure exactly how to title this thread as I have a few issues with my newly acquired hisun UTV. Hopefully going to consolidate all the issues in one thread. 
      I purchased from a guy who  had rebuilt the engine  replaced the fuel pump as well as re-done the front end. He had the unit running and driving when it quit and would not start. He got frustrated and decided no more projects and sold it to me.  Unit is in excellent condition physically.....hardly any scratches on the plastics. All in all its a good unit with the following issues/symptoms
      1) Mis fire and stalling out when revved
      Well as you can see by the title of the first issue I managed to get the unit running.  Seems that the battery was very weak. I charged the unit and it fired up fine.  The engine seems to stutter and misfire when revved and once the unit warms up it stalls out. I think it's a fuel issue as if I give it a shot of ether it starts back up.  
      Additional Note: Revving engine in Neutral  seems to cause indication to flicker and occasionally the reverse light comes on  which seems to kick in the reverse rev limiter. Have also hade this happen when driving around. Reverse Light flickers and revs get cut. 
      2) Fuel line configuration.
      When he replaced the fuel pump he got creative with the tubing and removed the "small fuel tank" 
      (See pictures)
      Not sure  what the purpose of this tank is but would love some pictures of a stock set up so I can  put everything back together correct.

       
      3) Issues engaging in gear
      The unit seems to have issues going in to gear...I will move the shifter in place  but the gear won't engage and the lights don't indicate correct. It takes a few tries to engage and sometimes it grinds a bit 
      4) Rack and pinion slipping
      This problem is probably a simple replacement fix...when turning to the right with the vehicle not moving the steering just slipps and turns without turning the tire. I believe I just need to replace the rack and pinion but if there is something else please let me know.
      Any insight or tips on resolving any of these issues would be much appreciated.

      Ok I am hoping things aren't totally pooches
      Side by side stalled out on my son and wouldnt start. Seemed to have very low vacuum draw on the pump and even when primed manually it wouldn't push much gas. 
      Have been wanting to check the valves any ways to see if they were off spec ( had been having issues with running rough)
      I checked the valves....intake seemed a little tight and the exhaust very tight ( exhaust were brutal to get to ) 
      Decided to check compression while I had the plug out....picked up a new compression tester as I couldn't find mine and was getting 0 compression.
      Seemed strange so I pulled the tester out and cranked it with no plug to see if I was getting air movement.  Seemed to be pushing air out of the plug hole fine....then heard a clunk sound and now the starter won't turn it over....it trys but it's like things are jammed.
      Any thoughts on how bad I have screwed up?
      I didn't think anything I did should have caused any damage.

      I have a 2009 T2 joyner for sale, health and age issues have kind of sidelined me the past several years.  The joyner has been in inside storage and is in very good condition with less than 3 K miles.  I have made many mods from suspension to engine and frame.  I am asking $7K or best offer. If interested contact me via email ([email protected]) and I will supply additional detail information.
