As we inch closer to the the 2017 King of the Hammers, we thought it would only be appropriate to take a look back at some of the KOH events from the past. This video from last year’s 2016 King of the Hammers offers just a glimpse of the most challenging off-road race in America.
JOHNSON VALLEY, CA – With just under a week until federal sequestration cuts are set to go into effect, the Secretary of the Navy is curiously seeking Congressional approval to move forward with base expansion at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California. Spanning nearly 600,000 acres, the combat center is the largest Marine base in the world with a comparable land mass to Rhode Island. Despite strong public opposition and a potential sequester that will cut tens of billions from the Pentagon budget this year, the Marines are asking Congress to approve an acquisition of 168,151 additional acres; roughly the land equivalent of the country of Singapore.
