ULTRA 4 Stampedes into Reno

J.T. Taylor takes the Win in the 2nd annual Running of the ULTRA 4 Stampede held outside Reno NV on Saturday.

The first and fastest qualifier was Shannon Cambell off the line at 9:00am . He would soon have some mechanical issues before reaching Giants Throne which allowed J.T. Taylor to overtake him for the lead. From that point JT never looked back and ultimately had a 31 minute lead over the 2nd place finisher of Erik Miller and a 46 minute lead over 3rd place finisher Randy Slawson.

In only it’s  2nd  year the driver sign up count grew after hearing of the challenge of Men and Machine against the Elements. 47 of the best rock racers qualified for the Stampede, 17 finished within the allotted time limit of 9 hours and 2 finished outside the time limit. The Elements Won all but 19 drivers. With an attrition rate this high it is becoming well known that this is One Tough Race, second only to the King of the Hammers but word has it between the drivers and people in the know that the Stampede is tougher. Just to finish this race is considered to be quite an accomplishment.

Congratulations go out to 7 drivers that qualified through this race for the 2012 King of the Hammers. They are Rick Mooneyham 4th, John Webb 10th, John Cagliero 12th, Mike Turner 13th and  Larry Anderson 14th.  Aaron Robinson 15th  and Jason Blanton 17th were Merit Qualifiers. We look forward to seeing all of  them compete in the 2012 King of the Hammers.
