(Photos by Chad) – What some people don’t realize about the NITTO King of the Hammers is that there are multiple classes of competition and like in any multi-class motorsport there’s one which reigns supreme over all others and in this case it is the Ultra4 Unlimited category. Basically these can be any size, shape, and power that the builder wants so long as it operates in four wheel drive and it meets the safety regulations set forth by the race organizers. In this gallery of photos alone you are going to see plenty of weird and wild stuff along with some awesome rigs that Chad spotted while cruising the pits. We’re going gaga over the white Bronco (leave your OJ jokes at home!).
When you see some of these photos you’ll likely have to remind yourself (like I did) that you are not looking at the surface of the moon but rather California. Harsh, unforgiving, and capable of breaking the heartiest of rigs like twigs, this is heavy duty stuff and we’re loving the action.
