King of the Hammers is only in its third year, but the popularity of this event is off-the-charts. King Of the Hammers is a unique race, in that it combines everything from high speed desert racing to the controlled mayhem of rock crawling. For the 2009 race, UTVs were thrown into the mix as part of a demonstration race.
The UTV King of the Hammers Race was held at Johnson Valley OHV area on February 25, 2009. This was more of an exhibition than a race because spectators were allowed to help racers through the course. We went up the sand hill and up Aftershock.
