My name is Cody Rahders, pronounced Raiders, and I am a professional off-road racer, a full time college student working on a degree in engineering.  I am also a full time employee at Fox Shocks.  I am currently racing the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series and Finished 7th in the Score Baja 500 for 2017.

For the 2016 season I competed in Best-In-the Desert, UTV World Championships, and Mint 400, the SCORE Baja 500, Rosarito 250, and the Baja 1000.  In 2015 I raced a factory backed Polaris RZR XP 1000 in the Production 1000 class achieving the championship at the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series and finished 4thin points in the Fox Shocks sponsored Polaris RZR XP 1000 at the Terracross Championships.

During 2014 I raced two Cognito Motorsports/Polaris Factory backed UTV’s at the Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Series (LORORS). A Polaris RZR XP900 in the Stock XP class, and a Polaris RZR XP1000 in the Production 1000 capturing the titles in both classes.

Putting Superchips to the Test

Cody Rahders Racing uses Superchips programmers in both their tow vehicle for short course racing as well as their chase trucks for Score Racing in Baja.  “We’ve found the vehicles have better throttle response off the line when pulling our race trailers to the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series as well as in increased fuel economy while chasing Cody’s desert race car around the Baja peninsula.  Increased drivability and fuel economy are paramount to a successful race program and Superchips has been a key component in helping us achieve our goal.”
