SHOOTOUT AT KING OF THE HAMMERS ON MONDAY

In tomorrow’s King of the Hammers, it’s the Shootout. This event is as entertaining to watch as the King of the Hammers main event itself and may be why so many people show up early to Hammertown. Rigs ranging from homebuilt rock crawlers to southern rock bouncers to SRRs compete for the fastest time up a huge vertical ledge. It’s the King of the Hammers’ version of drag racing. Traditionally held at the Backdoor obstacle, the Shootout is moving closer to Hammertown to accommodate more spectators. There will be stadium lights and announcers with thousands of people lining each side of the course, cheering and heckling the drivers. The race starts at 6 p.m. Drivers to watch this year are Bobby Tanner, Mike Slawson, Ritchie Keith, and Jessie Haines.
