SFX Pro Quad Stadium Round 2: Trinity's own Jeremy Schell had a misfortunate crash in the whoops during the finals at Edison Field in Anaheim, California. Look for him to ride the Trinity Quad to a SFX Pro Quad Series Championship in the next three events schedule in Febuary 2003. The series will have another event at Edison Field and then move to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California for the final two events.

Anaheim, California -- The Trinity Racing tradition began in 1978 with a small shop in Garden Grove, California. Founder and President, Harry McDermott, a graduate of Bolsa Grand High School in Garden Grove, California was drawn into the off-road scene shortly after graduating high school. By 1985, his shop was researching the performance of the ATV world and a few years later, Trinity Racing was born.

Beginning with $3000 dollar investment in 1978, Harry McDermott surrounded himself with a team of experts and over 20 years later, Trinity Racing accounts for over 3 million dollars annually. With sales, repairs, custom aftermarket accessories and complete engine performance rebuilds, Trinity Racing serves nations all over the world. The international business trade of Trinity Racing reaches into the Middle East, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and all over Europe. Trinity Racing serves the entire ATV world.

Harry McDermott is no stranger to the off-road racing world. With many races and experiences under his belt, Harry has raced the SCORE-International Race Series in Baja, Mexico for many years. As the industry pinnacled into off-shoots of other dirt racing endeavors, Harry and his crew followed and led the industry in the recreational sand drag scene and also in the national Track Racing scene. His wisdom and guidance shines as the leader in the Trinity Racing organization. Harry McDermott has truly dedicated his expertise to the betterment of the off-roading community.

SFX Pro Quad Stadium Round 2
Anaheim, CA - Edison Field
Jan 25, 2003

A sold out Edison Field in Anaheim, CA was the stage for Round 2 of the Clear Channel/SFX 2003 Pro Quad Stadium Series. The track was wet and muddy during the afternoon practice session, but a groove was soon developed and the warm California temperatures quickly dried up any moisture in the packed dirt. As the afternoon wore on the Pro Quads bumped around the track in search of the fastest line. The Trinity Racing Team of Jeremy Schell-Z440 & Cory Hinsz- Z440 raced hard and fast taking Heats 1 & 2, respectively. But in the final and Main Heat, the Trinity racers were victims of what we call, "racing will be racing," and just plain bad luck. Although the Main Heat was disappointing, you KNOW both of these guys will be back in the hunt at the next race with a vengeance.

Local fans cheered on the Pro Quads as they blasted around the track at record speeds. Trinity Racing's own Jeremy Schell has a mis-fortunate crash at the top of the whoops, which launched him off the quad and down onto the safety track against the outfield wall of Edison International Field taking him out of contention. Look for Trinity Racing and Jeremy Schell to make a huge comeback at the next three events in Febuary 2003.

DEVOTED TO WINNING: Seen here in the SuperFlow CycleDyn Dynamometer, Trinity Racing President, Harry McDemott runs the race quad prior to the event. Working days and nights, Harry is mostly in the Dyno shop working and tweaking on different aspects of high performance. He and his team of engineers continously test different variations of porting and valving along with many other factors. Harry says that he often answers the phone while blasting on the dyno at maximum speeds. If you're looking for Harry you'll most likely find him in the dyno shop or in the dirt testing the latest high performing Trinity Racing prepped quad. TRINITY SUPPORT TEAM: Perusing the track and stadium before and during the event, it was apparent that the entire Trinity Racing Support Team was everywhere.

Trinity subscribes to a tuning philosophy known as "The Total Tune." Each component is designed and tested to generate maximum performance results over as long an RPM range as possible, because it's not what you can afford now, but what you're going to have in the future.

While ORC staffers visited Trinity Racing in Anaheim, California Harry never left the dyno room except to demo the quad for ORC.Go figure!!!!
This Trinity Racing Race Quad was dyno'd and tweaked by Harry and his team just prior to the race. After a demo on the dyno, this quad proved very ready.

You might find parts that may actually give a 2% higher increase when bone stock, but the minute you put in race gas, port your motor, raise compression, or just take the lid off the airbox, Trinity's performance gains soar over all competition.
