Local driver with a big vision looking to "put on a good show for the fans and podium all 2018 events." Standard Race Team driver Darian Gomez, also known as Flacco, is an 18 year old driver from the Northern California area who has been racing for multiple years in his UTV class. This sport is new and is growing rapidly with each new series or event that is added throughout the 2018 race season. A couple series that Darian will be racing this season is the NorCal Rock Series and The Ultra 4 Series. Norcal Rock Series is the most extreme side-by-side, open wheel rock racing in the West Coast where drivers compete to be the best in three events from Prairie City SVRA in Rancho Cordova, Ca to Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, NV. These events provide the most action packed racing for a family friendly environment where as a spectator you are able to view nearly 90% of all the racing action. Darian is excited to race his local track at Prairie City and also travel to Reno for the third race of the series in hopes to bring home the championship two years in a row.
Along with competing locally, Darian and his Gomez Brothers Racing team pack up the trailer with multiple Ultra4 cars and UTV side-by-side's and head to Johnson Valley, CA for King of The Hammers. This event started in 2007 with a small group of 12 drivers at a non-spectator event and has now evolved to a 35,000 spectator and 400 team event. Turning Means Dry Lake bed into 'Hammertown' and each day offering new races from drit bikes, quads, personal vehicles, UTV's, and the final event being the Ultra4 Class. Darian will be competing in this event for the second consecutive year with his Gomez Brother Racing team. More information will be available but also visit https://ultra4racing.com/ for more information.
Racing is the excitement not only fans wait for but also the drivers as they put in numerous hours of work and practice to provide the open wheel, dirt flying experience for everyone. Through the off season Standard Race Team Driver Darian aquired a new UTV, 2017 Polaris RZR XP Turbo, which after many upgrades and hours of tuning and specing he says it's ready for the 2018 season. Many local sponsors are what make this happen from AmsOil, HCR, RCV Axles, PCI Radios, DesertCraft, MRT Tires, Gomez Brothers Racing (GBR), and StandardCloCo™. Each Sponsor plays a critical role as it takes a well orchestrated team to run a race team and a car that consecutive places on the podium and looks good doing it. A big step that Darian is also taking this season is Racing FULL TIME and he can't be more excited for this opportunity. Late nights wrenching, early morning workouts, daily training, and mentally preparing himself it what separates Darian from the rest of the field.
An example of the hard work and dedication portrayed by Darian is shown when last week he took his day to haul the #90 UTV to Prairie City to get practice laps in for the upcoming season. Along with the practice, we at StandardCloCo™ showed up and took advantage of the opportunity and took photos and videos of the entire day. See some pictures below and stay tuned for the video that will be releasing soon on both Youtube and Instagram.
A HUGE thanks from the StandardCloCo™ team goes out to Gomez Brothers Racing for allowing us to be such a big part of Darians race team and the experience as a whole. Excited to continue working with their team and supporting a local talent, Darian Gomez, through the process.
