Set against the picturesque back-drop of the Grand River in Disney, Oklahoma, Ultra4 racers conquered rock waterfalls at the final event of the season. The course took racers through rock gardens and up to tight twisty turns into trees that blossomed bright fall colors.
Coming into the weekend, Josh Blyler had the point lead over Vaughn Gittin Jr. As racing got started, Paul Horschel had the lead blasting through a “joker line” on course. As Horschel put time on the rest of the field, he somehow began to experience issues. His teammate Brett Harrell unknowingly took over the lead. Harrell and his co-driver stayed consistent, clicking of laps. They were surprised when they learned at the checkered flag they had won the race. Meantime, Vaughn Gittin Jr was struggling to make it up the rock waterfalls. Up ahead, Josh Blyler was running a steady pace finishing third behind JP Gomez. Blyler had enough points to secure the season championship.
A day earlier in the 4600 class, the story turned to the Ford Bronco. Brad Lovell, Vaughn Gittin Jr and Bailey Cole all stood atop the podium proudly displaying their stock Broncos. Brad Lovell’s win also secured him the national championship in the Ultra4 series. Over in the 4500 class, Rick Lavezzo was crowned champion. Other race winners at Legends of the Fall included Wood Rose in the 4800 class and Paul Wolff in the 4900 UTV class.
