Stephen Crabtree informed us of the upcoming 2011 King Of The Hammers race. The event will be held February 7th 2011 at 9:00 AM and February 12th 2011 at 2:00 PM located in Johnson Valley California. This gives everyone who is wanting to attend, either as a participant or an observer, ample time to get their affairs in order. Stephen informs us that “This is the big one — the race of all races. I’ll be there as part of the Voices of Land Use Team, representing BlueRibbon Coalition. This is NOT to be missed. It promises to be wild, crowd-pleasing and spectacular. Welcome to the future of four wheel off-road endurance racing. The toughest one-day off-road race on the planet – King of the Hammers.”
After receiving this exciting event news.. I went and took a look at the King Of The Hammer’s website. Here is some information off their website for those of you interested in reading more about this organization:
Dave Cole and Jeff Knoll formed a unique bond in late 2004 when over dinner the two pitched ideas back and forth that ultimately lead to the King of the Hammers race in Johnson Valley, Ca. The two had rarely spent much time of-roading together, but mutual respect led them to that fateful night of story, tales, and idea’s. In 2006 Dave went on to win the W.E. Rock world championships, and Jeff joined the SCORE International Trophytruck team of Pflueger racing.
In 2007 A call went out for a secret gathering of a wide selection of Rock sports personalities in the Johnson Valley OHV area. The rest is quickly becoming Rock sports, and desert racing History.
Dave Cole is a highly active member of the off-road community participating in Professional Rock Crawling, Land use, desert racing and Club activities with the Tin Benders. His Passion for Johnson Valley OHV area is unparalleled.
Jeff Knoll has been involved in all forms of Off-roading since 1974. His CRCA events are considered by some as a pioneering force in Rock racing. Jeff is currently participating in Professional Off-road racing in the Best in the Desert series 3000 and 4400 classes.
