Crowd Pleaser -- 2014 Nitto National Championship

Since the early days of Ultra4 racing, it had been a dream, rather a near impossible task, of bringing the elements of King of the Hammers racing to the masses. Granted, 10s of thousands of die-hard racers, families, and those who have high-octane fuel flowing thru their veins, find themselves in the middle of the Johnson Valley desert at least once a year already. Still, there are those that would enjoy this unique style of Ultra4 racing without traveling a few hundred/thousand miles. Enter the Nitto National Championship. Read more…

The Ultra4 2014 season has been jam-packed with nothing short of non-stop action, and it all comes down to this. Wild West Motorsports Park of Reno, NV will host this year’s Nitto National Championship this Saturday, October 18th. Over 100 of the best Ultra4 drivers on the planet will be there, and given the intensity of this untested short course meets rock racing venue, it will be a nail biter till the very end. We’re floored to say the least, having traveled to every Ultra4 race this year (including all 4 European races), a final year-end showdown, in a venue that’s built for drivers & spectators alike, is a welcome addition to any season finale.

For those attending in person, or trying to watch the action online, here’s your cheat sheet for things to come:
