To improve the King of the Hammers UTV experience for 2014, Hammerking Productions has simplified the UTV classes, and moved the UTV to its own day. The race will be held on Wednesday February 5th, 2014. There will only be two classes: A Pro and an Amateur class. Pros will be racing for a purse and Sportsman will be racing for a trophy. Rules have been simplified for the class as well, and the new UTV rules can be found in the ULTRA4 Rulebook. A copy of the UTV rules are listed below.
Due to these changes for 2014, we are extending the early bird pricing for the UTV Class for a limited time. Drivers who have not yet signed up will still be able to pay the same pre-12/1 prices if they sign up ASAP.
King of the Hammers UTV Costs are as follows:
KOH UTV Sportsman: $300* w/ 2014 Series Commitment $400* w/o 2014 Series Commitment
KOH UTV Pro Class: $500* w/ 2014 Series Commitment $650* w/o 2014 Series Commitment
