July 7th, 2015, GLEN HELEN RACEWAY: This weekend more than 100 ULTRA4 cars are returning to Glen Helen Raceway for the 5th Annual 4 Wheel Parts Glen Helen Grand Prix. The weather is expected to be in the mid 80s during the day and these cars won’t return to Southern California again until next year’s King of The Hammers.
This will be the second race of the 2015 ULTRA4 Trail-gear Western Regional Series. Many of the cars expected to compete also raced in the 2015 Nitto King of The Hammers presented by 4 Wheel Parts. The top 10 non-qualified drivers will earn themselves a spot in the 2016 King of The Hammers. ULTRA4 drivers are also competing for a $10,000 purse.
Top drivers are expected to be in attendance including former Kings of The Hammers; Loren Healy, Shannon Campbell and Jason Scherer. Top Nitto Series drivers such as Derek West, Wayland Campbell and the 2014 European ULTRA4 Champion Levi Shirley will also be in attendance. Drivers are not only racing for podium positions but also points towards the Nitto National Championship.
The format for the Southern California race combines Glen Helen’s short course track, motocross track and enduro tracks for a grueling grand prix style format. The race is timed and the driver with the most laps in a given timeframe will be declared the winner. Spectators will have amazing views of the course as they watch drivers compete head to head with as many as 40+ cars on the track at once.
On Friday, ULTRA4 drivers will qualify in the late afternoon. Qualfiying will determine starting position for the prelims on Saturday morning. The Main races start after noon on Saturday with the 4400 Main event taking place at 4:45! Wrist bands are $20 for the weekend. Dry Camping for spectators is free with the purchase of a wrist band. Saturday will be an action packed day of racing with UTV, Legends, Stock and Modified 4 wheel drive vehicles also racing. Many of these vehicles also competed at the King of the Hammers in a race known as the Every Man Challenge Race which is a modified version of the main event. These vehicles are no strangers to high speed.
