2017 King of the Hammers Photos, Videos and Stories

We had an amazing time at the 2017 King of the Hammers!  The week has expanded and it is hard to keep up with all the activities and excitement of the week.  Doing daily posts from the lakebed has become unreasonable for us – instead we spend our time trying to be everywhere at once and getting all the pictures and videos we can.  We have spent the last couple weeks compiling everything into what we are calling the LON-FB-Header-KOHredo#KOHredo.  A day-by-day recollection of the whole week.  It’s fun and exciting.  Join along in the adventure, or catch up on the events here.  It’s going to get a little wild come the middle of the week!

2017-KOH-Tue-Qual-WM-1Qualifying was the topic of the racers all day! The course was a combination of fast, rocks, uphill and downhills, plus the entertaining short course track! On Tuesday we also hosted our 4th Ladies Offroad Network Social and had the Ladies Offroad Experience WELDING with ESAB North America. Of course a day at the Hammers isn’t complete without a trip to Backdoor!


The UTV Race kicked off the day with a 8am green flag. Qualifying started again in the afternoon including a the International and regular Power Hour that put Jason Scherer on the pole! On Wednesday we also hosted our 5th Ladies Offroad Network Social and had the Ladies Offroad Experience changing a tire with BFGoodrich Tires and pulling a winch line with WARN Winches.




Smittybilt Every Man Challenge Race – The largest race of the week took the green flag on Thursday morning. Brad Lovell would come out victorious for the second year in a row.




#KOHredo – Saturday – The week of racing was over and it was time to go to the awards ceremony and then actually go wheeling out on the trails! Yes, I finally got to have an afternoon behind the wheel…remembering why we do what we do 🙂 

Sunday – Time to load up and head home! It’s weird…after 11 days I’m ok to go home, but I could also stay a few more. Can’t wait until 2018 King of the Hammers!! #koh2018
