Wayland Campbell Takes Home the National Championship
Congratulations to Wayland Campbell on his 2017 Ultra 4 National Championship win! From numerous podium positions the past couple years, Wayland started 2017 off right with a second place finish at King of the Hammers then went on to earn his first ever Ultra 4 win in Texas at the 212 Performance Gloves Vaquero 212.
Ultra4's 2017 4 Wheel Parts Nitto National Championship Race
It was an action packed weekend at the Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, Nevada, for the Ultra4 National Championship race. Despite his sister, Bailey Campbell, having been in a violent rollover off the track earlier in the day, Wayland was able to keep his pace through the 4400 class preliminary round, and held his commanding lead through the finish line. Wayland qualified in line behind his father, Shannon Campbell, and Jason Scherer, who took the pole position for the 4400 championship race.
Wayland crossed the final checkered flag on Saturday in third place behind Levi Shirley (2nd) and Jason Scherer (1st), but landed enough points over his competitors to keep his first place standing in the national championship points. Although this is a first championship win for Wayland, he’s already hungry to be crowned the next King in February, at the 2018 King of the Hammers.
