“Year after year we are proud to support our KMC athletes in King of The Hammers. Not only does the event push each racer’s endurance and skills but highlights their ability to adapt to the diverse desert and rock terrains within one race. Nowhere else can you watch multiple classes of racer’s battle it out over such rigorous landscapes like KOH" says Ryan Guidus, KMC UTV Brand Manager.
The King of the Hammers is a race unlike any other. It is considered the "toughest one day off road race in the world." It is the cornerstone of a weeklong off-road festival in Johnson Valley, California. More than 60,000 spectators are expected to attend while millions more watch online.
Founded in 2007, King of the Hammers pins the most capable off-road trucks and UTVs across 165-miles of rigorous terrain. The ten-day event is a test of stamina for drivers and spectators alike and is the perfect event to showcase KMC’s robust and capable wheels.
