40,000 EXPECTED FOR KING OF THE HAMMERS IN JOHNSON VALLEY STARTING FRIDAY

In terms of both competitors and spectators, King of the Hammers is the largest off-road racing event in North America. The event combines desert racing and rock crawling to come up with what its promoters say is the world’s toughest one-day off-road race. Reporter Mike Lipsitz says buckle up and hold on to your helmet…
Since its humble beginnings, King of the Hammers has expanded from one race 12 years ago to a series of five racing events that will be held between this Friday and Saturday, February 10 in Johnson Valley. And if past attendance is any indicator, upwards of 40,000 people will descend on the otherwise sleepy community for eight days of fun and fury as 300 racing teams compete. King of the Hammers kicks off with the opening of “Hammertown,” a pop-up city that rises from the floor of Means Dry Lake accessed from State Route 247 just north of Landers. Spectator tickets are $30 at the gate and are good all week; kids age 12 and under are free.

    Silly claim to be the biggest. Unless someone forgot that Mexico is part of North America, or forgot about the Baja 1000. The big kahuna of off road events. Over 50 years, a thousand mailers.
