King of the Hammers 2013 Recap
Another King of the Hammers is in the books and the guys from BDS are back home shaking the dust off, going on with stories of the and camaraderie and competition out in the lake bed. Mike Maloney and Jason Shellhaas headed out to Johnson Valley for the week long competition and came back with this to say:
…this event continues to expand and draw in larger crowds than ever before. The weather was all over the map and as motos, quads, Jeep, trucks, and buggies took to the terrain to be crowned the new King. In the main event on Friday the competition came down to the wire with 2-time winner Shannon Campbell nipping at the heels of eventual winners Randy and David Slawson.
In the Everyman challenge, BDS distributor Pacific Fabrication stepped up and ran one heck of a race, climbing his way to into 3rd place at one point with a 40 minute lead in the team’s Blazer Truggy. Kevin and the Pacific Fab crew eventually DNF’d a mile up the Mountain from Remote Pit 2a after nearly losing the the axle when the truss sheared.
It was great to meet so many of our west coast customers and spend time with the Off Road Warehouse crew, who were kind enough to host both our sales staff and a great new display of soon to be released for the JK Wrangler. Congratulations to all the competitors that took part in this year’s races, it was an awesome week out in the desert!
