The youngest Pro-class champion in off-road racing history, RJ has already experienced as much success as many veteran drivers of the off-road racing circuit. RJ claimed his first professional racing championship at age 18, winning the LOORRS UTV Championship crown in 2011.
RJ also experienced success quickly when he moved into the Pro-Lite and Super-Lite divisions in the LOORRS and The Off-Road Championship (TORC) racing series. In his first full season behind the wheel, Anderson won TORC Rookie of the Year honors while finishing second in points for the Pro-Lite series and class championship.
RJ further cemented himself as an elite driver when he became the LOORRS Pro-Lite Champion and Driver of the Year and Dirt Sports Magazine’s Short Course Driver of the Year in 2012.
RJ’s youthful energy and already established level of success make him a natural fit for Rigid’s Torture Team of professional racers who utilize the world’s best LED products to light their way.
“By starting my own team in 2014, I knew this was my chance to partner with the very best brands in the industry,” said RJ. “Becoming a part of the Torture Team was a no brainer for me. I am excited to work with Rigid Industries as a sponsor for all we have planned on and off the track this year!”
“On top of being a very talented driver of pretty much anything in the dirt, RJ does it with style. He personifies what we want our athletes to portray and has fun doing it too.”
As part of the partnership, RJ will utilize Rigid LED Lighting on his #37 Polaris® RZR / Monster Energy PRO-2 truck while competing in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, which features night races at six of its eight events this season.
His truck will also proudly display the Rigid Industries signature star emblem, recognized most in the desert racing world in which it got its start.
Welcome to Rigid Nation, RJ!
