Jason Scherer Makes History As The First Back To Back King
A week of racing in Johnson Valley in front of 50,000 rabid fans and 2,000,000 online viewers culminated with Friday’s Nitto King of the Hammers powered by Optima Batteries. Covering 235 miles of punishing desert terrain and some of the most difficult rockcrawling trails in the world (aka The Hammers), KOH has a reputation as being one of the most difficult races on earth, pushing man and machine to their breaking point, and beyond. Attrition was as high as ever, with only 26 of the 111 competitors reaching the finish line within the 14-hour time limit.
