King of the Hammers 2016

The King of the Hammers is an off-road race that combines desert racing and rock crawling. This race is held in February on Means Dry Lake at Johnson Valley, California.  This annual event is a mix of gnarly off-road racing where the attrition rate is so high often just 10-20% of the racers finish due to the extreme terrain that includes high speed sections of open desert where speeds of 130mph can be seen, to near vertical rocky obstacles challenge the best rock-crawlers to get over quickly.  Carnage is a norm with broken motors, suspension, axles, or entire vehicles.
