Determination and commitment to succeed has driven Ultra4’s youngest 4400 driver, Jordan Pellegrino, to focus on a brand new Full Independent Suspension Ultra4 car to race at the 2019 Nitto King of the Hammers powered by Optima Batteries. The Rockstar Energy – Mickey Thompson Tires – KMC Wheels – GenRight Off Road FIS car features a Triton Engineering Chassis, 74 Weld portals, a few T1 truck parts, and is racing on Mickey Thompson Baja Boss tires. This is one of two FIS cars entered into the 4400 class for the 2019 King of the Hammers race.
During Tuesday’s qualifying, 20 year old Jordan Pellegrino’s goal was to go fast and keep the car together on the almost 2-mile qualifying track that consisted of short course, jumps, desert whoops, rocks, sand washes, rock trails going up and down Short Bus, and back into Hammertown short course.
In a blistering time for the first race the new FIS car has seen, Jordan qualified 9th in a field of 107 with a time of 2:26.7, which is only 8.4 seconds off the pole position time from Nick Nelson which was 2:18.3.
“I had a few bobbles in qualifying that cost a couple of seconds, but overall I am happy with where I qualified in the new car. It is wicked fast. Now to focus on keeping it together for the duration of the 4400 race on Friday.” Said an ecstatic Jordan Pellegrino after his run.
