We're heading back to Bedford, KY in 2017 to once again take on the distinct challenges and excitement offered at Dirty Turtle Off-Road Park! We had a blast at this unique venue last year and look forward to returning for another amazing competition in the final race of the 4WD Hardware East Coast Series!
In 2017, ULTRA4 returns to Attica, Indiana for the battle at Badlands Off-Road Park. This will be the second race of the 2017 ULTRA4 4WD Hardware Eastern Regional Series, following our new-for-2017 series race in Oklahoma! Don't miss out on this stellar show of off-road racing prowess!
For the first time ever, ULTRA4s are heading to Oklahoma, to a huge Off Road property that offers a little bit of everything! There will be some wide-open fast sections, some tight tree-lined east coast driving, and some rocks. Davis, Oklahoma should be an exciting new race on the ULTRA4 circuit for 2017!

“KOH 2016 was our biggest and most succesful King of The Hammers to date. We look forward to continuing that momentum into 2017.” said Hammerking founder, Dave Cole, who went on to say, “It is our goal to release dates as early as possible to give teams and fans plenty of time to prepare for their annual trip to the lake bed.” With 2017 President’s Day falling later in the month of February, Hammerking moved the race back to it’s traditional place in the first full week of February. The last few years, opening day crept into late January due to President’s Day taking place earlier in February. The holiday is one of the largest recreational wheeling weekends in Southern California, and KOH Week must be completed prior to holiday weekend.
About King of The Hammers: King of the Hammers is considered the toughest one-day off road race in the world. It is the largest off-road race event in North America in terms of both competitors and spectators. It combines desert racing and rock crawling, and has expanded from one race to a series of 5 races held throughout the week and takes place each February in Johnson Valley, CA.
