Can-Am King of the Hammers from Brian Deegan’s Viewpoint

Cody Miller

New Can-Am ambassador Brian Deegan was in Johnson Valley, CA for the 2020 Can-Am King of the Hammers UTV race. He drove his new Can-Am Maverick X3 to watch the action in Back Door and over at Chocolate Thunder to get an idea of what it would be like in case he decides to race in 2021.

From what he said in his video, it sounds like he wants to give it a go in 2021!

More details from the 2020 Can-Am King of the Hammers UTV race:

Can-Am swept the podium at the annual Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers Presented by HCR today, with KOH newcomer Hunter Miller besting Midwest short course racer Kyle Chaney and KOH veteran Phil Blurton to round out the podium.  Hunter’s brother Cody was the fast qualifier for Sunday’s race, putting the two side by side at the starting line. 

To challenge this talented roster, Hammerking promoter Dave Cole used the same course for 2020 Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers Race Presented by HCR as the first two laps as Friday’s Nitto King of the Hammers Powered by Optima Batteries (which runs an additional lap through the most challenging rock canyons).  Just five years ago, only five UTVs finish the race.  In 2020, 33 out of 131 vehicles finished the race within the eight-hour time limit.
