Defending champion Joseph Rodriguez of Davao City will try to extend his domination at hometurf when the 2019 Maxxis National Association of Filipino Off Roaders (NASFOR) 4×4 National Extreme Series on March 16-17 at the Maa-Diversion Road race track.

Fresh from his conquest of the third leg in T’boli, South Cotabato, Rodriguez will lead the host squad 4Wheelers Davao in the race serving as one of the sports highlights of the annual Araw ng Dabaw celebration.

Local off road racing enthusiasts as well as those coming from nearby provinces and cities will be battling it out in the extreme off-road racing also dubbed as the 21st 4xFun National Off-road Challenge hosted by the 4Wheelers Davao. Races are scheduled from 9am to 5pm at the man-made track located beside the Team Davao Shooting Range.

According to organizers, the two categories for this action-packed and challenge-laden off-road competition are the Eextreme, which allows fully modified 4×4 vehicles and the Production class for vehicles with tire measurements of up to 31 inches only.

Other than the fabulous prizes such as high performance parts and 4×4 accessories and the ‘bragging rights’ that go with it, top drivers will also be given corresponding points that will help improve their rankings under the National Association of Off Roaders (NASFOR) for the coveted 4×4 ‘Driver of the Year’ award.

NASFOR plans to send the 2019 Driver of the Year to Malaysia for the more treacherous and technical Borneo International Safari Challenge.
