Every year, Hammertown, USA is build as the Fastest Growing City in America as over a week it goes from zero to eleventy jillion enthusiasts. With them come side by sides, quads, dirt bikes, Jeeps, buggies, trucks, SUV’s, home built contraptions, and much much more.

And while criss crossing the valley behind the wheel of my Nissan Frontier four door pickup, with 4-wheel drive, I drooled over all of it. But the real reason I was there, and the thing you’ll get to check out in 10 galleries featuring 1000 photos, is the Nitto King of the Hammers powered by Optima Batteries. This year’s race was just over 180 miles, featuring three lapse around Johnson Valley and Lucerne Valley, across lake beds as speeds over 100 mph, up sand hills, down rock canyons, up rock canyons, through dirt and dust and terrain that put every vehicle to the limit. It is commonly revered as a race that is a victory if you finish. It starts at 8 am and the fastest guys will finish around 3-3:30 pm. There are pit stops, and lots of repairs, but ultimately it’s about going over whatever is in front of you as quickly as possible. And not getting lost along the way.
