More than 120  drivers are registered between VORRA and ULTRA4.  This will be the final showdown in the Western Regional series for the ULTRA4 Classes.

Reminder For Teams!
Have you ordered your Yellowbrick Tracker? Yellowbrick Trackers required for all classes: Cost is $95.
New for 2017, Yellowbrick trackers will be required for all classes at Fallon. This is a tracking service we have wanted to use in prior years, and the trackers are available this year for labor day. For those unfamiliar, Yellowbircks are a GPS tracker that allow race ops, teams and family to track a driver’s location throughout the race. These are the same trackers used at King of The Hammers. No mounting hardware is necessary for these trackers they can attach to your pillar with zip ties.

ALL TEAMS – Bring tarps or mats to be used for fluid containment under vehicles in pit areas and during times that spills are likely to occur. A clean-up kit is also required, and can be as basic as a shovel and heavy-duty trash bags capable of containing soil affected by a small spill. Spills greater than 1 quart must be reported to Race Officials or a BLM Representative.
