Brad Falin and Rob Daly Talk About Ultra4 Competition!

Bradley Falin alongside his Ultra 4 #457 desert race car

     The popularity of racing in the desert and rock crawling competition has reached an all-time high. With better access, the recent 'King of the Hammers' competitions have drawn more than 20,000 spectators. Unlike Baja races, where racers disappear after the starting line and do not resurface until the finish line, rock crawling and closed course desert racing provide far more accessible viewing areas.

      If you enjoy desert racing and competitive rock crawling, or have considered competing in these motorsports, this video series can save you years of trial and error. Brad Falin has crewed and raced with top drivers like Rod Hall, competing at Baja, VORRA and desert races across Nevada and the Southwest. Brad's willingness to share his unique experiences and provide useful tips to prospective racers is a valuable opportunity.
