On Friday, February 7, 2014, over 35,000 fans will be gathering on the public lands of Johnson Valley, California for the 8th Annual King of the Hammers, the “toughest one-day off-road race on the planet.”
More than 300 teams will be competing in a variety of vehicles across a course that contains open desert plains and technical rock crawling.
Check out the highlight reel from last year:
We’ll be keeping our eye on driver and TV personality Jessi Combs (Overhaulin’, Mythbusters, All Girls Garage) as she competes in the new Spec 4700 class in her Jeep Wrangler-bodied tube chassis fitted with factory-supported Hemi motors and running on Falken’s new 37-inch M/T-series tires. In 2013, Combs became “the fastest woman on four wheels” with a land speed record of 392.954 MPH, and continues her racing pedigree as the newest addition to Falken Tire’s roster of factory-supported drivers. The Spec 4700 class will race on Thursday, February 6, 2014 as part of the Every Man Challenge event.
Festivities will be taking place all throughout this week in “Hammertown” (Johnson Valley, CA) and if you’re not able to make it out in person, you can watch all the action online HERE.
