Nothing like dialing in a new Ultra4 racer early in the year. Chicky Barton’s IFS debut race, the 2014 King of the Hammers, didn’t go exactly as planned. They almost never do, especially with a brand new build; the racing field always seems to provide new ways of finding the small new car gremlins that, despite the very best efforts, always persist. With a small amount of down time between KOH and Ultra4s at Superlift, Chicky went straight to work, taking what he learned from KOH, removing those gremlins he found out in the desert, all to dial in his fastest car yet.

Well, this weekend was certainly testament to that. Without EVER letting up (seriously, pretty sure his foot never came off that throttle), Chicky commanded the field at Hot Springs. With 40 racers in total, it was the most challenging Ultra4s at Hot Springs race to date, so taking top honors was even sweeter than ever. Congrats Chicky, and his father for co-driving the entire time, it was a blast to see you back in action. As Chicky always says, Ship the Bed! Not exactly sure what that means… something to do with his co-owned mattress store? Doesn’t matter, Ship the Bed!

Before we wrap up, congrats to all 25 drivers who crossed the finish line, it was a tough race and it’s nice to see more than half the field make it to the end. We’ll post a few photos throughout the week, be sure to keep an eye out for them. Till next time!
