He was a co-driver during the first KOH, also known as the OG13. He is on the short list of the King of the Hammer Champions after winning the race in 2013. But after today, Randy Slawson now joins an even more elite crew as a two-time King of the Hammers winner.

“Last year I had a lot of pressure from winning the year before, and we pushed the car incredibly hard,” Slawson said after the race. “I just wanted to bring this thing back and try to let it prove itself. It is insanely fast and strong. Man, it takes a beating.”

Maybe it’s the genes. Maybe it’s the car. Whatever the ingredients are in the Currie family’s formula for success, Brandon Currie found it again today by winning the Smittybilt Everyman Challenge at the Johnson Valley OHV Park during Nitto King of the Hammers Week. After winning it three consecutive years, father John decided to step back this year and let his son Brandon drive, and Brandon made dad proud, besting the field of 92 racers in the event that serves as the penultimate race of King of the Hammers Week.

After last year’s victory, Mitch Guthrie Sr. told us that he and son were simply running their own pace. Whatever that pace is, it clearly seems to be working, as Team Guthrie took home yet another UTV King of the Hammers victory – and with it, a brand-new Polaris RZR.

Fifty rock racers and all-around off-road maniacs decided to test their mettle (and their rig’s metal) at the 2015 Vision X SRRS vs. ULTRA4 East/West Shootout Presented by Sway-A-Way. The event, referred to as the Shootout at Backdoor last year, was again held in the canyon that is home to challenging ledge at Backdoor. The competition is simple: get your rig through the canyon and up and over the ledge in the shortest amount of time possible.

Although there were a handful of nice 2015 Ford F-150 builds at the 2014 SEMA Show, one of the first trucks that caught our attention was this unique, eye-catching blue truck built by Trent’s Trick Upholstery and A.R.E. Accessories. Based on a 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum 4×4 SuperCrew, the Extreme Sports Project Truck certainly garnered its share of attention at the show, as it was selected for the Top 10 Mothers Choice Award at the show.

The Ram 2500 Outdoorsman concept truck shows just how capable, and functional, a 2500 can be for off-roaders and hunters when outfitted with Mopar and aftermarket parts. Ram says this truck was inspired by its relationship with outdoors outfitter Mossy Oak who helped created the truck’s unique color that’s aptly called “Swamp Thing Green,” which features a blend of camouflage details incorporated into the hood, roof and lower body of the truck.
