Another surprise announcement from Mr. Dave Cole last Sunday, it is indeed a big one. The world’s toughest Ultra4 race just got tougher?!? It would appear that way, here’s what Dave had to say:

“BREAKING NEWS from Dave Cole!
For the first time total race mileage will exceed 200 miles.
215 Total Race Miles for Ultra4
3 laps in similar format as years past
Anyone up for Sledge?
Longest distance between pits 23 Miles
2 Remote Pits + Main Pit
This is a big deal, you will either need 3 pit crews, team up with someone, or work with someone like Mag-7 (Pit crew for hire)…working on rates now but they are way cheaper than driving another truck out.”

So there you have it. We have officially exceeded the 200 mile mark, talk about insanity. Happy to see all those teams prepping in a big way this year… we’re all going to need it!

Side note: Sales Office¬†will be closed this Thursday and Friday (that’s January 1st & 2nd) for New Years. We will be shipping on Friday the 2nd though, for all you online shoppers.
