I have been involved with offroading for over 2 decades and I have learned to expect the unexpected. I remember when 4 Wheel Drive and Sport Utility Magazine called rock crawling a fad back in the mid 90's and it would soon pass. Well they were wrong. Rock crawling has evolved into something many never expected years ago. Through the twisted minds of a few Tin Benders on the dry lake bed came the sport of Ultra 4 racing. KOH combines hardcore rock crawlers with fast speeds for the ultimate in offroad desert racing. What is King of the Hammers? It is a lot of things. I think to really define King of the Hammers you have to be there and live it. It is more than racing the worlds toughest one day offroad race. KOH is about the journey to get there, the friends you make along the way, and the stories you take home with you.
Check out this movie trailer from Heavy Metal Concepts for the 2012 King of the Hammers. HMC does a great job putting these videos together. Be sure to go out and purchase one.
