Four Champs Move Ahead

August 23, 2018

4 Top-Ranked Athletes Have 2 Things in Common

What do 4 champion athletes have in common? Not only is each one proudly sponsored by Champion Power Equipment, but all four are ranking high and winning big worldwide.

Grant Enfinger, 33, professional stock car racing driver, picked up his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win in 2016 with GMS Racing, and recently made it into the 2018 NASCAR Truck Series Playoffs. Of his 16 starts so far in 2018 with ThorSport Racing, Grant has 4 top-5 finishes and 12 top-10 finishes. No matter how crowded the track, you can’t miss Enfinger’s bright yellow and black Champion Power Equipment Ford F-150.

Kaique Pacheco is the #1-ranked bull rider in the world. The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) point system is consistent throughout the world and rewards riders like Pacheco, 26, with points for individual performance and throughout the season. Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Kaique began bull riding professionally at age 17, was named PBR Rookie of the Year in 2015 at age 21 and currently claims the number one spot in the 2018 25th PBR: Unleash the Beast.  

West Virginia’s Jason Lentz is not only the #1-ranked lumberjack in the world, he is a 4th generation lumberjack and a 3rd generation winner of the Tony Wise All-Around Lumberjack title. Lentz, 33, started chopping wood at age 3, presumably influenced by his dad, Mel, who is considered by many to be the King of the Lumberjacks. Jason says his strongest timbersports discipline is the underhand chop and advises anyone who wants to get into the sport to learn correct technique.

Casey Currie is the winner of the 2018 Baja 500 in the Hammer Truck Unlimited Division. This rugged race takes place in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, and covers a course of 542.12 miles. Currie’s family has been building motorsports parts for over 50 years. Casey, 35, started racing motorcycles at the age of 5 and at age 16, he raced his first truck. When he’s not busy with his full race schedule, you might find this off-road champion building off-road vehicles or running trails at home in California.  

Big congrats to these four champs who are showing the world they are Always Ahead!
