KMC Wheels is the title sponsor for the 3rd annual Battle in Bluegrass taking place July 20th and 21st at Dirty Turtle Off Road Park in Bedford, KY. This is the final race in the 4 Wheel Parts Eastern Regional Series. 55 teams are currently registered to compete! 
 
We expect racing to be fierce in all classes as the Eastern Regional Championships are on the line! It is also the last chance for 4400 drivers to qualify for the 2019 King of The Hammers East of the Rockies. If you’ve always wanted to see ULTRA4 Racing up close and personal, this is your chance. The Dirty Turtle Off Road Park provides some great views from the short course and there will also be an ULTRA4 vs. Bouncer Shootout on Saturday night.
 
Return of the Saturday Night Shootout! 
The Southern Rock Racing Series (SRRS) Rock Bouncers will be joining ULTRA4 for a shootout after racing on Saturday night. It’s $200 for ULTRA4 drivers who wish to compete, and you can sign up by selecting “shootout” under the “racer” tab located here. Space is limited, drivers should sign up ASAP. Non-ULTRA4 cars and SRRS bouncers should contact Clyde Bynum at Clyde@southernrockracing.com
