There’s really no better way to say it, the 2013 MetalCloak Nor Cal Stampede delivered in a big, big way. From qualifying to checkered, spectators and racers (and there were lots of both) were given a weekend full of non stop action. It was a close battle down to the very end with driver skill & attrition playing equal roles in deciding the victor.

The race format was a nice mix up from the Stampede’s of past. Set on the hill sides of Rancho Cordova, CA, teams were matched-up against a short course style landscape, but not without the Ultra4 touch of rock sections. There were a number of rock sections to battle, making the lap based playing field that much more level between IFS and solid axle rigs. What made the Nor Cal Stampede work so well was its course layout, which managed to keep the competition close until the very end. When the dust finally settled, out of 48 vehicles it was Jason Scherer and his Spider 9 powered IFS Ultra4 racer that took top honors. A huge congratulations to Jason and his team for an incredibly well run race, and a well deserved win.

In typical fashion, we’ll be posting up photos throughout the week from the 2013 MetalCloak Nor Cal Stampede (2 photos a day till Friday). Pretty sure everyone is going to dig this photo set, the action really was insane. Also, before we forget, there’s yet another Ultra4 race about to get underway, the WIDIA Rausch Creek Qualifiier this Saturday in Pine Grove, PA. We’ll be there as well, catching all of the action, and we’ll be sure to share that story next week. Till then, enjoy the photos from the 2013 MetalCloak Nor Cal Stampede, and congrats again to all of the finishing drivers and teams.
