The race was originally cancelled in Las Vegas due to a permitting issue that caused two off road racing organizations, including ULTRA4, to cancel races the weekend of September 27th. At the request of ULTRA4 drivers and their sponsors, a suitable location was found for the same weekend at Thunder Rock Off Road Ranch in Congress, Arizona.
This letter was sent out last week from promoter Dave Cole regarding the Ultra4 National Championship Race. Since the letter went out, Ultra4 has sent another e-mail mentioning the TORC race in Primm from September 27-28 as a potential replacement. Here’s Dave Cole’s letter to racers:
I am writing this letter to all Ultra4 Drivers, fans, partners, and vendors. The Ultra4 National Championship Race scheduled for 9/27/13 in Las Vegas has been canceled. This is due to situations beyond our immediate control. The Bureau of Indian Affairs operating permit that was being handled by the Land Manager will not be secured in time for either the Ultra4 or HDRA race. I was notified yesterday at 11:00 AM PST and have been trying to find a resolution.
