Christopher Polvoorde will race Sunday 1/30/22 at 10AM
The first race of the new year for Christopher is King of the Hammers (KOH) in Johnson Valley, CA which will take place Jan 30th. Back in 2020. Christopher raced & finished KOH in the UTV class which was a feat in itself. For 2022, CP has a different race vehicle for this legendary race which will be his 2021 Mason Motorsports Spec Trophy Truck. Racing in a Trophy Truck is different than the traditional KOH race which primarily revolves around the beefy, rock crawling 4400 class. Unlimited TT, Spec TT, and Class 1 Buggies all race on a loop that is still rough and rocky but is more suited for desert vehicles. All 3 classes race on the same 84 mile loop at the same time which is bound to get congested (and dusty) as trucks and buggies pass one another.
Race Structure: T1, T2, & B1 qualify on a 33 mile loop Sunday 1/30 at 8am. Their qualifying time will be added to their race time from the (3) 84 mile laps making the total race, including qualifying, 285 miles. Races are set to start at 10AM just after qualifying.
Riding with Polvoorde as Co-Driver for KOH will be Christopher's best friend, Bryce Romine. Bryce has experience riding with Christopher in the Baja 400 and has countless hours into Polvoorde's Spec TT making him a great option with his extensive knowledge of the Ford machine.
"I'm really looking forward to racing Hammers in my Optima Batteries powered Ford. Johnson Valley is close to my hometown so it would be great to have a successful outing here to start the year off. " - Christopher Polvoorde

About KOH & ULTRA4 from ULTRA4racing.com
ULTRA4 Racing is the official web site of Hammerking Productions. The founders of Hammerking are the force behind the toughest one-day off-road race on the planet: King of The Hammers.
King of The Hammers takes place each year in February, on public lands in Johnson Valley, CA. The race has evolved from 12 teams racing for bragging rights and a case of beer, to more than 300 teams competing before more than 35,000 fans in person and nearly 500,000 watching online. Due to the incredible success of King of the Hammers, Hammerking has created an ULTRA4 Racing Series with seven races held throughout the country.
Each of these races is a qualifier for the King of The Hammers race each year. In addition to these races, Hammerking has established a racing class known as the ULTRA4 class. The defining characteristic of this class is that all cars must be capable of 4-wheel drive. Beyond that, the class is unlimited. These cars come in all shapes and sizes and are capable of speeds over 100+ MPH and still contain gear ratios as low as 100 to 1 for technical rock crawling.
To give these cars and their drivers a chance to showcase their unique capabilities, Hammerking has formed the ULTRA4 Racing series. The series challenges drivers to compete in a wide variety of terrain from endurance desert racing to competition-style rock crawls to short course racing. Hammerking currently produces seven races in the series. Currently ULTRA4 has 8 races in the US, 4 races in Europe, 1 race in Australia, and an exhibition in China. These races take place on both public lands and in private property around the world.
Hammerking Productions has also produced 8 full-length feature films chronicling King of the Hammers races. We manage our own live production which is seen every year by millions of followers online. These award winning movies have helped shine a spotlight on this new form of racing throughout the world.
