We're pleased to welcome Carbon Off Road as the official title sponsor for the Fallon 250 race! This is Carbon's first time sponsoring an ULTRA4 Event and we're looking forward to partnering with them on promoting this race. The Carbon Off Road Fallon 250 will be featured on the final episode NBC Sports 6 episode series titled "Journey To The Hammers"
All teams are invited to take part in the first annual Gomez Family BBQ on Friday Night after the driver's meeting, in the start/finish pits. Stan and Brandon Haynes hosted a Branik Family BBQ for teams in Kentucky and it was a great time for ULTRA4 teams to hang out and enjoy some time with each other outside of racing. Big Thanks to the Gomez Brothers for offering to host the BBQ.
ALL Tech and Registration will be taking place on site at the start/finish area in the pits. No registration will be done at Stockman's Casino this year. Our event is too large to be hosted in town.
