Eleven Ultra4 rigs crossed the starting line on Day 1.  The attrition rate was high, only two cars finished Day 1: Jeff Knoll and Kevin Sacalas. With teamwork and dedication, all eleven cars once again showed up the starting line on Day 2.  There was more heartbreak for seven of the eleven teams, with only four crossing the finish line: Ben Napier, Brandon Watson, Dean Bulloch, and Kevin Sacalas.  That qualified five drivers to start Day 3: Knoll, Sacalas, Napier, Watson, and Bulloch.  Of those five cars, four finished the race at mile marker 996: 1. Sacalas, 2. Watson, 3. Napier, 4. Bulloch. Only one racer completed all three days: Kevin Sacalas.

“I was proud to be able to race with this quality group of racers.  They put on an amazing show with unbelievable commitment to finishing,” said Hammerking Productions and racer Dave Cole.  After wrapping up a long week, Casey Folks from BITD said, “from our side it was fantastic, we are very proud to have the Ultra4’s with us.”

The final pre-qualifier for 2010 King of the Hammers will be December 12-13 at the Pima Motorsports Park in Tucson, AZ. Competitors will be given a chance to compete at the WERock “Put-Up or Shut-Up Shootout” which has a reputation for being a grueling event even for the most talented rock crawlers.

Hammerking Productions, Inc. created the “King of the Hammers” off-road race in 2007 (www.kingofthehammers.com) and released its first full-length film in 2008. The 2009 running of the King of the Hammers was featured on Spike TV and in the film “Second Crusade.” In 2009, Hammerking expanded race action to include three additional regional qualifiers for the 2010 race. Over 15,000 drivers and fans from around the globe will descend on the desert of Johnson Valley for over a week of off-road related activities in 2010.
