The Third Annual Pitbull Tires UTV version of King of the Hammers will take place in Johnson Valley, CA on Thursday February 10, 2011.  The toughest off-road race on the planet, known as the Griffin King of the Hammers, will again entertain a race specific for UTV’s that is 40 miles long including going down two rock trails, across two wide open smooth sections and four technical sections, two hard pack and two sand. “I have to say we have spent as much time on this course design as the main course,” said Jeff Knoll of Hammerking Productions. “The course is very well rounded and difficult, but will not require a specifically built UTV.  We used a nearly stock Kawasaki Teryx to test the race course.”

Pitbull Tires again leads the charge and will offer $5000.00 in prize money to the victors.   Last year Pitbull Tires set a new standard in payouts for UTV events across the globe, this year they are back spreading the love a little more evenly offering more incentive to all drivers by offering contingency payouts on top of the Top Three placement winner payouts.  “We love being there in the desert hanging out with all the top people in our industry, from the
