Daystar had a great show at Off Road Expo this past weekend! Hundreds of companies were on hand at the L.A. County fairgrounds in Pomona, California, this past weekend to show off their latest products and project vehicles to the thousands of off-road enthusiasts who turned out for the two-day show. Daystar's presence in the main exhibit building was well received, with our R-1powered Rhino getting lots of attention. Our Stinger Bump Stops were also a big hit among off-road enthusiasts and racers alike. Off Road expo is one of the few shows that draws the many different aspects of off-roading, including desert racing, short course racing, rockcrawling, MX, and even R/C. The event included a Lucas Oil Off Road Race Series (LOORS) exhibition, a freestyle motorcross exhibition, a bikini contest, and even an ATV test-drive course. If you missed it, make plans to attend next year!

Daystar would like to congratulate our friend and long-time industry associate, Rick Pewe, for his recent induction to the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF). Rick was inducted in the category of Recreational: Four Wheeling, for his lifelong contributions to the four-wheeling community. Rick has been involved in many different facets of off-roading, from being a shop owner to a racer to a trend-setter and pioneer among rockcrawling enthusiasts. Rick has also worked alongside magazine editors for many years, eventually earning the Editor-in-Chief position at Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road magazine, the largest recreational off-road enthusiast publication in the nation. Over the years Rick has mentored many people that have gone on to become major figures in the off-road industry, and during his tenure at the magazine he has become a leading voice and advocate for safe and responsible off road activities. Rick joins advocate Eugene M. "Gene" Chappie, motorcycle pioneer Chris Haines, legendary off-road racer Johnny Johnson, and KC HiLites founder Peter A. Brown as the 2010 inductees. Congrats, Rick!
