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.

John Currie earned his third Everyman Challenge consecutive win today in Johnson Valley, but in spite of the fact that he ran away from most of the field, it didn’t come easy. Brad Lovell challenged Currie for most of the race, although Currie said that he wasn’t aware of Lovell’s presence.
