Win a Rock Crawling Weekend on a Private Ranch for Your Club

Win a Weekend for Your Club on a Private OHV Ranch near Reno, NV
Off Road Innovations and Hammerking Productions Announce the 2010 Best Prepared Rig Contest
at the Ultra4 Stampede in Reno, NV, Sept. 7-12, 2010.

Five (5) 4x4 clubs will get to compete for a chance to be the ONE selected club to get a full, PRIVATE weekend of awesome rock-crawling, camping, and trail-riding fun for the whole club, right outside Reno, NV. On Friday night of the Ultra4 Stampede, the five finalist clubs will present their BEST PREPARED/SETUP rig to the crowd of cheering fans for a most unusual contest of preparation and preparedness!

“This is not a rock crawl or obstacle course,” says Don Gilman of Off Road Innovations, the premier sponsor of the contest, “but rather a challenge to see how well setup and prepared your BEST rig is in your club.” Each club that fills out an application (TBA) will get a shot at being one of the 5 finalists who compete LIVE in front of the Ultra4 audience, with noted landuse activist and off-roader, Del Albright as the emcee and a panel of judges.

The drawing for the five finalists clubs will be held in Reno on Wednesday August 11th at the premier of the “King of the Hammers - Anarchy” film at the Grand Sierra Resort.

The contest will be live from 7pm to 8pm on Friday night, September 10th at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. Each rig/car/4x4 entered can have up to but not more than 4 seats and 4 passengers. Only one rig per club may be entered. All passengers may help with the contest. Without unveiling the fun of this contest, just realize that it is about preparation, setup, inventory, and readiness for about any situation on the trail or in rock crawling.

The contest is FREE to enter and applications are due by 5pm August 10th. Fill out your form at the Off Road Innovations store in Reno, NV or online at and click on the Ultra4 logo to download the form.
