Event Alert: Hitting The Lake Bed For The 2020 King Of The Hammers

The lake bed is officially open and the 2020 Ultra 4 Racing season kicks off with King of the Hammers. This year’s King of the Hammers brings a lot of the events from last year and all the same high energy action that people have come to love at this event.

What race are you looking forward to seeing? The T1 race or the King of the Hammers?

“As you may know, we’re bringing back the motos race (King of the Motos) in addition to all of your favorites from last year – Shootout, UTV, Every Man Challenge, T1 Desert Trucks, King of the Hammers 4400, and the Pit Crew Challenge,” Dave Cole of Ultra 4 Racing explained. “Additionally, we’re adding some more entertainment and ultimately extending ‘Race Week’ to nine days!”

With all the high paced action on the lake bed seeing the races in person will be best, but for those fans who can’t make it to Hammertown, the event will be live-streamed all week on the King of the Hammers website. This is the same view that will be shown on the jumbotrons in Hammertown and shows some of the best views of the races along with all the events of the week.
