ABOUT BLADE HILDEBRAND
" Since the start of my journey my sponsors have given me opportunities to grow my racing, travel the world, and create value. The partnerships with my sponsors is vital to
the success of my program. You are truly appreciated. "
Blade Hildebrand at the age of 19 is beginning to be recognized as one of Off Roads future talents and has captured the attention of race teams, fellow racers, spectators, and companies alike! Blade began his racing career at the age of 4 racing mini-moto, go karts and BMX with titled podium finishers. Blade was a selected participant in the 2007 KTM Jr. Super-Cross Challenge in Seattle. It was in his mid-teens that Blade decided to take the race wheel of any type of race car and join the pros of off-road on 4 wheels. It seems he is a natural behind the wheel of a race car. In 2016 Blade won SNORE 5-Unlimited Title Championship along with an 8th Overall Series finish for the year. After his Championship, Blade stepped into a single seater 10 car, day one, first time out achieved a first place finish in BITD and was the top qualifer (70+ entries) at Rage at the River/SNORE. Blade entered into the non winged sprint car series, late in the season, and was able to take a 3rd place season points finish.
Empire's plans for Blade's 2018 season are huge for the exciting Stadium Super Truck series which travels the globe with the legendary Robby Gordon to the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series in his King Shocks sponsored Pro Lite along with Empire Racing's 6100 Truck in BITD and Snore. Blade is also testing the Skuza Shifter Carts and the debut of the Arctic Cat in Lucas Oil.
