Rock Crawling Fail or Save
This rock crawler is in over his head and cruising for a bruising. Check out the video to see how it ends up.

Reverse Rock Crawling
Pretty much anyone can pop it in 4 LOW and crawl up an obstacle, right? How about doing it in reverse? When this guy is done giving a clinic, he throws it in reverse and rock crawls like it’s no big deal.

Brothers Brad & Roger Lovell have become back to back champions of the King of the Hammers EMC race in what was a relatively smooth run with only minor issues. The pair qualified 8th after a huge boulder was dislodged causing a fair amount of struggle on a rocky climb. What was most important, however was that the team was near the front of an enormous 130 car field.

As the sun painted the clouds with red and orange over Hammertown, the 11th annual Nitto King of the Hammers powered by Optima Batteries came to life with the low rumble of V8 engines. Race cars had to be staged by 6:30 a.m. for an 8:00 a.m. start. Pit crews scattered to one of three remote pits along race course as the cars lined up in staging areas. Drivers chatted and joked about the adventure that was about to commence as their navigators ensured the race course and notes were on their navigation systems.
