The off-road racing world is always exciting but this year, Ford has really turned up the heat with the unveiling of the All-New 2021 Ford Bronco and they took it a step further by jumping into the world of Ultra4 Racing. While the All-New Bronco is slated to compete in the 4600 stock class, the gauntlet was thrown down at the season opener at King of The Hammers with three top drivers flying unique Bronco bodies for main event at the most grueling off-road race in the world.
The team is made up of 3-time King of the Hammers Champion Jason Scherer, 2-time King of the Hammers Champion Loren Healy and Drift King and 2-time Formula D Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. who has been no stranger to King of The Hammers over the last few years. It’s no surprise that this year is fixing up to be one heck of a ride when three of the fastest racers in the rocks and desert saddle up in their Broncos in the unlimited 4400 class in search of the checkered flag all season long.
We caught up with Jason Scherer at King of The Hammers earlier this year and got a good look at his racehorse for the season. Check out our rundown of Jason Scherer’s Ford Bronco 4400 race car!
