Tuesday February 7th 1-3pm at ESAB Welding Booth
ESAB Welding & Cutting, the official welding sponsor of Ultra4 and 2017 Nitto King of the Hammers, LetzRoll Offroad and Ladies Offroad Network have partnered to host a hands-on Ladies Offroad Welding Experience at King of the Hammers on Tuesday February 7th from 1-3pm at the ESAB Welding Booth on Griffin Expressway. Ladies will be able to put on a welding helmet, gloves and jacket, and then get instructions on how to weld. The first 50 ladies in attendance will receive a special gift from ESAB and everyone that attends will be entered to win an ESAB Welding Helmet and more goodies.
When done welding, or while waiting to weld, ladies will have the opportunity to tour the LetzRoll Offroad Racing working pit that has two cars taking the green flag. Driver of Record Andrew McLaughlin will be qualifying for the 4400 class during Power Hour on Wednesday night, race the Smittybilt Everyman Challenge race on Thursday in #4893, and then race the main Nitto King of the Hammers race on Friday in #4493. Ladies will have the opportunity to ask questions and watch as the team continues to prep for race day.
“The ESAB team that will be helping the ladies and our LetzRoll Offroad team that will host the ladies in our pit area are super excited about supporting everyone at this hands on event,” said Andrew McLaughlin, LetzRoll Offroad Owner, KOH Driver, and Brand Ambassador for ESAB Welding. “I think it is awesome that women are at the King of the Hammers and the Ladies Offroad Network is able to offer these opportunities, I know a lot of guys that would love to have the ability to learn like this. We hope every lady on the lakebed will come, get their hands dirty, ask questions and gain more knowledge.”
