Darryn Durham has signed up to to compete in the September 24th TransWorld SLAM, to be held during the annual SLAM Festival ride day, presented by MTA Distributing. Milestone MX Park is the place, and riders of all skill levels and abilities can come join in on the fun for a FREE ride day at SoCal's most-popular motocross track.

The highlight of the TransWorld SLAM Fest, presented by MTA Distributing, is the pro SLAM race, which pits riders in a head-to-head, tournament-style competition on the Milestone Supercross track. The eight fastest qualifiers are put into four two-man, two-lap heat races. The winners move on to two two-man, two-lap semis, with the winners advancing to the SLAM Final. A third wild card rider – editor's choice – is seeded into the three two-lap, three-rider main events. The rider with the best overall score in the three finals is crowned the TransWorld SLAM Champion and takes home the entire $5000 purse, the coveted TransWorld SLAM Championship Belt, and a brand-new Traeger Grill. Past TransWorld SLAM winners include Dean Wilson, Wil Hahn, Justin Bogle, Matt Goerke, Josh Hill, and Vince Friese.

This year Durham took a different approach to racing and instead of the typical team ride, he formed his own program, hit as many races as he could, and documented much of his adventure with teammate Tyler Bereman on video. Wildly popular, the video series from The Viewing captured Durham’s personality to a tee. “This summer was an epic journey,” says Durham. “I did some of the most fun, wild races of my career.”

Durham competed in the 2013 running of the TransWorld SLAM, and was joined in the final by Cooper Webb and Matt Goerke. At the start, Durham and Webb collided in turn one, leaving Goerke with a relatively uneventful win. “The SLAM was a lot of fun that year, and I’m excited to come back. After all of the wild races I’ve competed in this year, the SLAM is right up that same alley and I can’t wait to get in there and mix it up!”

Durham is supported by The Viewing, Fasthouse, VonZipper, PR2, and Thousand Oaks Yamaha.
