The 2009 King Of The Hammers Champion, Jason Scherer is returning back for his 8th year to take on the 2015 Nitto King Of The Hammers. This year Scherer will be running his #76 Ultra4 with a new look to the top competing race vehicle. Scherer and FOX have joined forces for the massive event and you wont miss the #76 as he will be rocking the FOX heritage 40 year anniversary livery.
In the depths of Johnson Valley, CA you can find some of the hardest rock climbing terrain their is to offer. Competitors are not only pushing the limits through the rocks, but they will also be pushing their endurance and speeds over 100mph on the course. More than 300 teams and 35,000 spectators flock to the open desert valley.
FOX has been helping Scherer since the first Ultra4 King Of The Hammers race. Since then they have been always progressing on the performance of FOX ability to work at its best in multiple terrains.
” I remember calling FOX and asking about bypass shocks for KOH and about how we can improve the set up for Rock Crawling. I think they thought I was crazy, but ever since then I have been running them and they have helped in the progression of the sport and capability of the vehicles.” Stated Scherer.
Having the flexibility to work with FOX on not only the Rock Crawling side of things, but as well as the desert races and races that take place on short course tracks has been beneficially for Scherer. Testing the #76 Ultra4 in November proved that the vehicle and driver are ready to give the 2015 Nitto King Of The Hammers a run for its money.
Racing takes place January 30th – February 6th. Ultra4’s will take to the course on Friday the 6th with Scherer giving it another run for the win. You can watch live racing starting February 1st at 8am by visiting ultra4racing.com.
