Qualifying for
2013 King of the Hammers
The top ten drivers from each Ultra4 race in 2012 will find themselves qualified for the 2013 King of the Hammers. As teams become qualified less finishers will qualify. Considering it is likely that some teams will continue to find themselves in the top ten at races throughout the year, Hammerking will guarantee that at least 3 drivers from each event will qualify in 2012. Due to more races in 2012 Hammerking has moved the number of guaranteed spots from 5 to 3 this year.  It is highly likely by the end of the season to see drivers qualifying outside of the top 10.

The Hammers Needs Your Help
The final EIS study has been pushed back until May. 
We have a Congressman who is willing to help in the fight against expansion, Darrell Issa. In order for him to start he needs to know his constituents want him to act. Congressman Issa needs to hear from over 100 points of contact; emails, letters, fax’s, sent to his office by CONSTITUENTS now.


Those living in the 49th District with Congressman Darrel Issa as your representative, we need your help. The district includes the cities of Canyon Lake, Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Oceanside, Perris, Temecula, Vista, Wildomar and the communities of Fallbrook, Julian, and Valley Center. If you do not live in this district please forward this email to anyone that you know who does!
