PRAIRIE CITY SVRA, CA APRIL 9th, 2013: More than 2,000 fans attended the inaugural ULTRA4 MetalCloak Nor Cal Stampede held at the Prairie City State Park near Sacramento, CA last weekend. Over the course of two days and multiple heats, 48 ULTRA4 cars waged battle on a brutal two mile course that left only 29 vehicles running by the final two races. Drivers pushed their cars to the limit in this first race of the 2013 ULTRA4 Trail Gear Western Regional series in pursuit of both a podium finish and a chance to qualify for the 2014 Griffin King of The Hammers Presented by Nitto Tire. Ultimately, two former Kings and the son of a King claimed the podium. 2009 King of The Hammers, Jason Scherer took the checkered flag followed closely by 2010 King, Loren Healy, and third place went to the youngest King of the Hammers competitor to date, 17 year old Wayland Campbell, the son of the only two-time King, Shannon Campbell.
Sparks, Nev. — Valley Off Road Racing Association (VORRA) today announced it will consolidate the final two events of its 2011 season with a first ever Short Course Double Header Halloween weekend, October 28 – 30 at Prairie City SVRA outside Sacramento.

The event kicks off Friday, October 28 with tech, registration and practice. Saturday and Sunday’s three-moto rounds of racing will be scored as separate series points events.
