The stress and tediousness of the 9-to-5 work week is enough to break the spirit of anyone. Just watch the movie Office Space. We all need ways to unwind and relax and we’ve found that one of the best ways to do this is throw a leg over your ATV or get behind the wheel of your SxS. Here is a small list of upcoming events for you to either participate in or just show your excitement by spectating. If you promote or know of any events coming up that you’d like to see on our site and event calendar, feel free to let us know by emailing us at email@example.com and put Events in the subject title.
February 4th, 7th Annual King of The Hammers UTV Race
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve heard about what some consider to be the most grueling single day rock crawling/desert race in the country. Drivers and spotters come from all across the country to give their best effort to win this race, or at most just finish since the attrition rate is so high. 5-Time KoTH Champion Mitch Guthrie Sr. will be spotting for Mitch Guthrie Jr. this year and will face stiff competition from professional UTV racing teams like Jagged X and many more. Find out all about the race and other events taking place at Hammertown in Johnson Valley OHV area by clicking here.
