Sept. 19th 2011 – Glen Helen, CA: Ultra4 Racing is pleased to announce that 4Wheel Parts has signed on as the official title sponsor for the final race in the 2011 Ultra4 Racing series. The 4Wheel Parts Ultra4 Glen Helen Grand Prix is scheduled to take place October 21st and 22nd at the world-famous Glen Helen Raceway. This race will be the last chance in 2011 for Ultra4 drivers to qualify for the 2012 Griffin King of The Hammers and competition is expected to be fierce.
“Who better to sponsor an unlimited 4-wheel drive race than 4Wheel Parts? said Ultra4 Racing founder, Dave Cole, who went on to say, “4Wheel Parts is an incredible Partner of Ultra4 Racing and we look forward to putting on a great race for them in their own back yard.” Glen Helen Raceway is nestled in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains and is less than an hour from 4Wheel Parts Headquarters in Southern California.
Some of the best drivers in Ultra4 Racing will descend upon Southern California to battle head to head on a course that combines Glen Helen’s short course with their steep back-country trails. Expect a 3.5 mile course filled with jumps, hills, bumps, turns, washes, fast straight-aways and canyon areas. The driver with the most laps after 4 hours of racing wins. This will be the first time Ultra4 Racing will host an event at Glen Helen and much like this summer’s American Rock Sports Challenge at Miller Motorsports Park, spectators will have a great opportunity to see these big horsepower, unlimited 4-wheel drive machines up close and personal.
Qualifying and Tech Inspection are expected to take place on Friday October 21st from noon to 5 and on Saturday, October 22nd gates will open at 9AM with racing scheduled to begin at 11AM. The race format will be 2 hours of racing, a one hour break and 2 more hours of racing, followed by an awards ceremony. The awards ceremony will feature awards for both this race and for the entire season. Ultra4 Drivers will have a chance to vote for “Ultra4 Sportsman of the Year” and the Ultra4 Series winner will be announced at this race as well.
