We all know King of the Hammers is growing year over year, but it must be said; the size of this year’s King of the Hammers is just insane. We say this in a good way, of course, another testate to Dave Cole for moving this event, and sport in general, in the right direction. We are still waiting for a semi-official count of those in Hammertown, but we know from first hand experience (we’ve been part of KOH since the beginning) the number of spectators, drivers, and teams is beyond anything that could have ever been dreamed of. It’s crazy, and we love it.

Today wrapped up the rest of qualifying, setting the starting order for 156 Pro racers for Friday and 77 EMC racers for Thursday. Add to this the 24 UTV racers who ran today (congrats Mitch Guthrie for the win) & the 75 Moto racers who ran last Sunday, and you can see where we’re coming from. It’s a wild ride, to say the least, and we can’t wait for Thursday and Friday.

If you’re getting ready for the next two days, be sure to check out Thursday’s running order at http://bit.ly/1es6SiW and Friday’s running order at http://bit.ly/1e4MsX6 . Also, DO NOT MISS the live coverage this year over at http://ultra4racing.com/live/ . This page includes a live multi-channel video feed and chat, and will honestly  keep you in the loop during race day better than being in Hammertown alone. The coverage has been amazing this year, the best ever, so a big congrats to Shannon Welch and the entire production crew for knocking it out of the park.

Finally (one last word), a huge thanks to all of the drivers and teams supporting Spidertrax and Spider 9 products this year. For Friday’s main race, 8 of the top 10 off the line are drivers powered by Spider 9 axles and components. A testament to both the product and support we have from amazing racers. Thank you, and best of luck tomorrow and Friday to everyone racing. We’ll see you out there!
