Billed as the toughest one-day off-road race in the world, the King of the Hammers is the largest off-road race event in North America with more than 400 teams and 50,000 spectators.
The Hammers, taking place each February in Johnson Valley, California, combines desert racing and rock crawling and has over the years expanded from one race to a series of five races held throughout an entire week.
“Talk about a target rich environment," Lance Camper Director of Marketing Bob Rogers says. "With the exception of the annual Quartzite gathering in the Arizona desert, rarely will you find more RV’s camping in one spot. The event was filled with truck campers and toy haulers and we had a blast going from camp to camp in our Lance/ATVdriver Can Am Maverick handing out free Lance swag to the many Lance owners in attendance.”
The Lance/Hellwig Rule Breaker 650 definitely made an impression as it traversed routes certainly untouched by ordinary truck campers.
“This is the best event I have ever been to,” Marketing Coordinator Jim Waters says. "Both competitor and attendees definitely take their toys (and their camping) very seriously out here."
