Survival of the Mountain is not only about the vehicle.  It’s not only about the perfect set of tires, the correct jetting, and the right set up.

Survival of the Mountain is not only about the driver.  It’s not only about the fastest driver, the most experienced, and the drivers ambition.

Survival of the Mountain is respecting the Mountain for its grace, beauty and difficulty at every turn.  Respecting Mother Nature changing the weather at any point during the day, and even within the 10+ minute run up into the sky.  Enjoying the scenery and the commodore that is built within the groups of racers.  Survival of the Mountain is knowing how to “Gas it until you see God, and then hit the brakes,” said a racer on KRDO Radio.

Campbell 1st place Ultra4 SS300 300x199 Ultra4s Dominate the Desert at Silver State 300 April 30, 2011- Las Vegas, NV: From grocery-getting Expeditions to monstrous blue-tubed buggies, it was hard to miss the unlimited 4-wheel drive class known as Ultra4 at last weekend’s Best in the Desert Silver State 300. The Ultra4 class, identifiable by their 4400 numbers, proved once again that they can hold their own in the desert:  They were both the largest class at the start line and the largest class to cross the finish line at Saturday’s 300 mile high-speed race through Nevada’s scenic back country. The drivers had weather on their side as cool temperatures kept overheating issues at bay and windy conditions made passing easier on a course that is already known to be a smooth, fast course well suited for many of the Ultra4 cars.
