Compton, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Being held at the historic 256-acre Glen Helen Motorsports Park in San Bernardino, CA built in 1985, the 2012 4 Wheel Parts Glen Helen Grand Prix event is expected to be another tremendous success. The park will be transformed into a 3 mile Grand Prix course, using the Lucas Oil short course track, REM, Nationals Motorcycle courses, the surrounding trail network, massive hill climbs, huge jumps, and enduro cross features. Off roaders will congregate here to race and showcase their customized rigs outfitted with custom fender flares and some fantastic Jeep wheels.
Running for the 2nd time this year, the winner of the Ultra4 Grand Prix will be determined by the number of laps and finishing position after 2 hours of straight racing. This proved to be a great event in the 2011 season with many drivers calling it their “favorite race” of the year. Off road enthusiasts far and wide are in for a incredible weekend of racing and Ultra4 this summer! 4 Wheel Parts is a premium retailer and service provider in aftermarket truck accessories for off-road and 4x4 enthusiasts.
