Minneapolis, December 30, 2014- The King of the Hammers (KOH) is known as the toughest off-road race in the world, and this year, the person who conquers the course will not only go home with “The Hammer,” but also a brand-new, 2015 RZR XP 1000 EPS.
As part of Polaris RZR being the official side-by-side of the race, Polaris sweetened the deal by offering up a RZR XP 1000 EPS to the Pro Class side-by-side winner. Last year, 26 side-by-sides would vie for “The Hammer” with five-time Hammers Winner Mitch Guthrie winning in his RZR XP 1000 EPS (read more at: 2014 King of the Hammers UTV Race Coverage).
“A majority of King of the Hammers’ Pro racers choose to race RZR,” said Jason DiFuccia, director of Marketing for Polaris Off-Road Vehicles. “So we figured they’d like a new RZR XP 1000 for winning. We look forward to presenting the 2015 Pro SxS winner with the keys.”
The 2015 King of the Hammers UTV race will take place on Friday, February 4, at Means Dry Lake, in Landers, Calif. More information can be found at http://ultra4racing.com/category/king_of_the_hammers/
