Lake Elsinore, CA – The Teryx Girls (Sara Price, driver and Erica Sacks, co-driver) have been thinking of Hammertown for the last 12 months looking to better their result from last year at the 2017 King of the Hammers. 

The duo wowed the thousands of spectators in Johnson Valley, CA, last year as they sped through open desert and found unique lines through some of the technical rock crawling sections of the course. The King of the Hammers is a true test of (wo)man and machine. 

Last Year the Teryx Girls started twentieth and came out of the desert section in twelfth going into the rocks, soon picking off enough cars to run in a fifth place spot before breaking out of the race. 

“From the moment we realized we weren’t going to finish last year, we’ve been thinking about how this year we were going to get the job done,” said Price. “We could hear everyone cheering for the Teryx Girls last year and I expect we will see even more fans out in Johnson Valley this week. This race is as tough as they come and I know Teryx is up for the challenge.”

Sara qualified the only 800cc to compete in the UTV Class Saturday the fourth for an impressive twentieth start position against 46 that day and 70 total entrants in class thus far. 

IMG Motorsports built the Teryx Girls’ Kawasaki Teryx specifically for the King Of the Hammers leaving a large percentage of stock parts on the race side-by-side due to the proven strength and performance of the Kawasaki Teryx. 

Fans can watch the Teryx Girls race live on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at www.ultra4racing.com/live.
