Important KOH UTV Updates!
To improve the KOH UTV experience for 2014, Hammerking Productions has simplified the UTV classes, and moved the UTV to its own day. The race will be held on Wednesday February 5th, 2014. There will only be two classes: A Pro and an Amateur class. Pros will be racing for a purse and Sportsman will be racing for a trophy. Rules have been simplified for the class as well.
Due to these changes for 2014, we are extending the early bird pricing for the UTV Class for a limited time. Drivers who have not yet signed up will still be able to pay the same pre-12/1 prices if they sign up ASAP.

Only stickered vehicles will be able to drive, park and camp in the Hammertown Garage areas this year. You will not be able to enter the Hammertown Garages without stickers.
Each driver of record will be mailed 5 stickers with their entry fee:
3 vehicle stickers (Trucks, CARS, RVs)
1 competition vehicle sticker (per race entry)
1 Pit UTV/Moto sticker
Additional stickers may be purchased. The cost is $25 for vehicle sticker (Truck, Car, RV) and $10 per UTV/Moto. These stickers can be purchased online and mailed in advance.Stickers can also be purchased on site. Please note: Please Note: You will not be able to park at your Hammertown Garage without these stickers.

There will be a lot of information going out over the next couple of weeks, and these newsletters will be our best way of communicating information quickly, so if there are people who aren’t getting this newsletter that need to be in the know, please forward this onto them.
