It is a goal of all of those associated with Swampcat Racing not only to Race and Ride, but to also promote good sportsmanship and unity in the power sports community. This unity is accomplished by means of a two part process. Fist by supporting legal riding areas through promotion and volunteer efforts. Secondly to help local charities on behalf of fellow riders, examples include the Bras for a Cause event and the Hallstead Poker Run.
Blue Ribbon Coalition
NOHVCC, PAOHV, and Tread Lightly
In addition to the BRC Rob from Swampcat Racing has been very active with other organizations within the Community. Training such as the NOHVCC seminars pictured on the right and Tread Lightly’s Train the Trainer classes always worked their way in between recreational riding and racing. NOHVCC’s mission is very similar to that of the Blue Ribbon Coalition which brings together OHV enthusiasts and provides information to individuals, clubs, associations and agencies in order to further a positive future for responsible OHV recreation. Tread Lightly promotes a balance between the needs of the people who enjoy outdoor recreation with our need to maintain healthy ecosystems and thriving populations of fish and wildlife. Rob has completed the master tread trainer course giving him a strong understanding of tread lightly and provides an opportunity to train others to go out and teach about outdoor ethics.
Looking to the Future
With the start of the 2015 race season and continuing into 2018, Swampcat Racing has outfitted a new ATV to be solely dedicated to racing. The platform was chosen based on a few key features. First, in keeping with tradition, it was going to be an Arctic Cat with the largest displacement motor in production. Other significant additions were the six inch stretched frame of the TRV and the application of power steering to help steer the oversized 32.5″ Highlifter Outlaw mud tires. Once the TRV was delivered the modifications were started. The oil and differential fluid was replaced with Lucas Oil and the coolant with Engine Ice. A new high performance lightweight Shorai battery replaced the stock one in the same location. Mudtech Inc provided the lift, differential braces, and arched A-Arms. A spike load damper delete kit was provided by D&P Performance. Even though the new ATV took the podium ten times in the last two years, this winter will afford the opportunity to tune motor and dial in the clutching.
