Over the past couple year there’s been a phenomenon that has taken off-road racing by storm. A mix of high speed desert racing and extreme rock crawling that tested man and machine in ways unlike ever before. 5 years after exploding onto the scene, the event that started it all, the King of the Hammers (KOH), is just 2 short weeks away. Each year KOH brings thousands to the hostile desert terrain of Johnson Valley, CA and converge in what’s known as Hammertown. Part party, part vendor show, part garage, this town is build from nothing each year as over 30,000 come to experience the action. The action starts February 3rd as race competition buggies, UTVs, and daily drivers make the trip out into the desert to compete in various classes to be crowned the
King of the Hammers. With qualifying races and smaller classes taking up much of the week the main even is is scheduled for Friday, February 10th. For the full details, maps, schedule, and live race updates, check out Ultra 4 Racing.
This year for KOH, BDS is teaming up with Team Desert Concepts in car #4454 as they compete for the crown. After winning 1st place in Class 4400 2011 Best in the Desert (BITD) Championship, the team of JT Stephens and Bryan Grigsby is ready to take on KOH. The rig has been in the shop over the past few weeks getting prepped for the race, stay tuned for updates as KOH nears.
