If you missed the latest installment of Jason Scherer’s new IFS race build, nicknamed The Gavel, time to head over to DriveLine.comDrivingLine.com ( http://bit.ly/thegavelpt3 ) for the latest update. It’s looking great, really great in fact, and easily one of sexiest IFS builds yet. Nothing better on a Monday than a sweet Ultra4 build with sweet behind the scenes photos. Enjoy.

Take a deep breath… the Ultra4 Nationals are cancelled. Like everyone else, we received word yesterday from an open letter Dave Cole posted to all. In typical Cole style, the letter is honest and transparent, and all said and done it is what it is. Read for yourself if you haven’t yet seen, http://bit.ly/17Uz5Kg .

We’re already half way thru this month, but make no mistake things are busy still on the off-road racing circuit; why not use this post to recap what’s happening in September. This weekend marks the first ever King of Portugal, and our very own Levi Shirley <insert plug>and his Spider 9 powered Ultra4</insert plug> will be representing the US in this soon to be epic battle. Be sure to follow the action on the King of Portugal Facebook page.

As it happens, there were two other off-road races the same weekend as the previously scheduled Nationals. September 27th-28th marks the final TORC short course installment at Primm, NV. Rock legend, and last year’s Pro Light champion Brad Lovell is currently sitting in 3rd for the Pro Light class, and as they say anything can happen in the final weekend of racing. Be sure to keep an eye on the Traxxas TORC Series Facebook page for updates.

Last, but certainly not least, W.E.Rock’s Grand Nationals takes place September 28th-29th. Yes, there’s a Facebook page for that too, W.E.Rock Nationals , and we have no doubt this race is going to bring good times all the way around. Always fun having East and West coast teams battling it out, and watching the action go down in our own state of Colorado is always a good thing.

So.…with all of that did we get your mind of the Nationals being cancelled? Probably not, but it is the weekend and it’s time to carry on. The photo in today’s post (used simply to cheer us up) is of Jesse Haines, and is one of our older favorites which shows off the technical side of competitive rock crawling. Alright, that’s it for now, enjoy the weekend everyone!
