2018 King of The Hammers Driver and Team Updates

2018 KOH Week Tent Rentals available. LAST DAY TO RENT TENTS! Click here to rent your tent.

Tents must be rented by 1/17/18. You do not need to know your Hammertown address to rent a tent --  we supply your address to the Tent company. You are not required to rent a tent. This is a service offered drivers to protect their equipment from the elements. Please note: this is the only tent company with a BLM Permit to rent and erect tents in Hammertown.  Please remember that all tents have guy wires that hang about 5' past each side of a tent, so a 20' tent takes up approx. 30'. If you have specific requests for tent placement, please email A1 Party Rental, Eddie Martin at [email protected] or phone him at: 626.384.1736

The event will take place on Monday February 5th, 2018 preceding the 2018 Nitto King of The Hammers Powered by Optima Battery. For the 2nd year in a row, top 10 drivers in the shootout will qualify for Friday's King of The Hammers Race.* And all drivers registered for LCQ have the option of participating in the Holley EFI Shootout!

USAC for Drivers and Riders of Record 

USAC Insurance is now available for 2018 at the following link: ULTRA4license.com Please read this carefully as the process has been streamlined for 2018. Last year’s 2-step process is no more! When drivers sign up for USAC insurance online they will receive scannable tickets (QR Codes) for both competitor entry and Hammertown parking stickers redeemable at the front gate on Boone Rd. Please save these tickets! Those registering will receive an email, but can also print or text tickets. Please note: the front gate administers parking stickers for entrance into Hammertown but ALL DRIVERS AND RIDERS MUST COMPLETE COMPETITOR REGISTRATION AT MAIN TENT IN HAMMERTOWN DURING REGISTRATION HOURS. 

Annual Vs. Single Event
Drivers racing only KOH may sign up for single event USAC insurance. Those paying single event insurance, must pay their tech fee separately by clicking here.  Drivers racing multiple ULTRA4 races should sign up for annual USAC insurance, which also covers the cost of the annual tech fee.  Motos riders do not have a separate tech fee. 

When Drivers and Riders sign up for their USAC insurance, they MUST select the parking package to receive their comped Hammertown Garage Parking Stickers. Drivers are comped 5 total stickers (1 competition, 3 car/truck/rv, 1 pit bike/utv). Riders are comped 2 stickers (1 competition, 1 car/truck/rv). Drivers and Riders may purchase additional parking stickers when registering for USAC.  Click here for more info on stickers

Please note: Co-drivers and Pit Crew are also eligible to purchase additional parking stickers when they purchase their USAC Bands. Only the person whose name is on the ticket can pick up the parking stickers at the front gate.

If more parking stickers are needed after all team members register, they will be available for purchase on site with cash. Supplies are limited to keep traffic in Hammertown reasonable. Parking stickers are non-refundable, so please do not purchase more than necessary. 


USAC Insurance for Co-Drivers and Pit Crew
Pit Crew and Co-drivers can sign up for either single use USAC insurance or an annual USAC insurance pass at this link: ULTRA4License.com When registering, Co-drivers and pit crew will receive a ticket/QR Code, please retain this code either via email, text or print. You will need to present it at the front gate to receive your wrist band. 

Annual vs. Single Event: 
If Co-drivers are racing more than one race in a season, the annual license is the way to go. For pit crew, the annual license makes sense if crew are planning to attend at least 4 ULTRA4 races in a season, or they would like the hard card for benefits such as the Jeep Discount Program. Pit passes will be available for sale on the lake bed as well, but this process allows pit crew members to sign their waiver and pick up their own bands when entering hammertown and streamlines the process at the front gate. 

Co-drivers and Pit Crew are eligible to purchase additional parking stickers when purchasing their USAC for KOH. Only stickered vehicles will be able to drive, park and camp in the Hammertown Garage areas. The person whose name is on the ticket can pick up the parking stickers. If more parking stickers are needed after registration, they can be purchased at the front gate with cash.


Yellowbrick Tracker Rental Available for All Classes. Click here to rent your tracker. 
Yellowbrick tracking has proven repeatedly to be the most effective GPS tracker on the market. It will be required for all classes and races except for the Shootout. Rental Price for 4400, 4500, 4600, 4800 and 4900 (UTVs) is $165. Price for Motos is $100.  You do not need special mounting hardware for this device. Drivers racing multiple races must rent one tracker per registered race. 


2 Ways to Qualify for Friday KOH Race on the Lake Bed

1. Those who register and pay for LCQ are automatically signed up for Monday's Shootout. The Top 10 drivers in the shootout are automatically qualified for Friday's KOH Race.  Please note: The driver is qualified, but the car still must pass ULTRA4 tech to race.  

2. LCQ - 25% of drivers signed up for LCQ will qualify via LCQ  regardless of shootout results. That means if 20 drivers sign up for LCQ, 5 Drivers will receive LCQ spots via the traditional LCQ held on Tuesday Afternoon.  Please note, Drivers entering via LCQ only need to pay for the LCQ entry. Should a driver qualify into the main race, they will then owe the balance of the entry fee on the lake bed and will be charged at the pre 12/15 costs. 

KOH Week Media Credential Applications Available.  Click here register for Media credentials
Every year the number of media requesting credentials at KOH increases. Because of this demand, media wishing to receive credentials for KOH Week 2018 should be careful to fill out their media credentials in full. Team Media is limited to 2 media members per team. Please choose your media credential applicants wisely as we will not grant additional media if two media credentials have already been issued for your team.
