King of the Hammers 2021
An Ultra4 may be the most unstoppable type of race car...or truck...or whatever you want to call it. Capable of hitting triple-digit speeds, while also comfortable of climbing up four-foot rock faces on the side of a mountain, these incredible machines can just about do it all. As a result, it should be no surprise that even the COVID-19 pandemic couldn't stop the world's toughest one-day offroad race, the OPTIMA Batteries King of the Hammers, presented by Lasernut.
Run every year in and around Johnson Valley, California, this brutal race pits man and machine against some of the very harshest desert conditions possible and 2021 was no exception. Great precaution was taken to ensure a safe experience for everyone involved, including mandatory negative COVID-19 tests, mandated masks and temperature checks for admittance to Hammertown and with 90,000 acres of BLM land to spread out on, this event naturally lends itself to anyone interested in social distancing.
