Lucas Murphy will be the 15th Ultra4 car off the line at the 2011 Griffin King of the Hammers February 11, 2011, after qualifying for the 2011 King of the Hammers at the Rausch Creek Qualifier in May. He raced and won the Southern Missouri Off Road Ranch International Endurance Race, placed 4th overall in the International Endurance Series (IEC) and won the RCRocs Rock Race Series in 2010.
Murphy, in his home built New England trail rig, will drive 3,200 miles to compete and will take on the King of the Hammers for the second year in a row. “I think starting 15th is pretty awesome. It doesn’t really matter at the end, but it is nice not to have all the traffic out in front of you,” said Murphy. The Murphy’s Law Motorsports team has been focused on going faster, not necessarily changing or rebuilding last years competitive rig. “We have been focused on motor performance on the dyno and tuning in the Fox Shox suspension. We feel those are the two things that will help us go faster.”
