King of the Hammers Results 2016

t-Jason-Blanton-2016-King-of-the-Hammers_701

The description of the NITTO Tire King of the Hammers powered by OPTIMA Batteries can vary, depending on who you ask to describe it. As the event has grown over the years, it has turned into a lifestyle event for some, who might describe it as "Burning man for offroad racing." Others will call it simply what it has always been, "the world's toughest one-day off road race."

The King of the Hammers takes place each year in Johnson Valley, California and for that one week, a dry lakebed is transformed into a place known as Hammertown and a temporary city housing hundreds of competitors and up to 50,000 spectators springs up out of nowhere, before vanishing again into the dusty air they leave behind. How tough is the King of the Hammers? Most vehicles (also known as "Ultra4s") that start, don't finish. The ones that do manage to make it across the finish line often take more than 10 hours to do it. Have a look at the finishing order of the 2016 King of the Hammers, as well as a massive photo gallery below. You can also see more photos from this event here.
