In every genre of competition there is a prestigious cornerstone event that sets the standards. The appeal for thrill seekers is to conquer the momentous chore, bask in the glory, and enjoy the legacy. In its short history, King of the Hammers (KOH) has forged an international sensation that is declared the toughest off road race on the planet, combining brutal rock crawling with high-speed desert racing.
Lucas Oil Products recognizes the significance that this event holds in off road motorsports and is proud to support King of the Hammers as the “Official Oil of Ultra 4 Racing.” In addition, Lucas Oil will be sponsoring an Off Road Short Course Demo featuring a handful of stars from the Lucas Oil Off Road Series, aerial helicopter support, and a dedicated street in Hammertown labeled “Lucas Oil Lane” located near Vendor Row. Also noted, Lucas Oil’s support starts with the racers themselves. 2011’s 9th place finisher #4478 Les Figueroa, driver of the Lucas Oil/ Figspeed.com machine, will be taking on the competition to better last year’s top 10 finish.
New for 2012, a standalone hybrid cross country enduro event has been added the KOH Event Schedule, taking place on Thursday, January 9th 2012. Titled “King of the Motos,” this treacherous & technical invitational race is designed to rival the world renowned Erzberg. Lucas Oil’s Pro EnduroCross rider Colton Haaker, will be riding a 2012 Kawasaki KX™ 450F, going for the winner-takes-all $10,000 purse in an event where few would even dare to enter.
