I googled it, yeah hotels are pretty far out. Looks like the nearest one is about 24miles away.

Yes, camping is the easiest and you are part of the event at all hours, good and bad at times. However, to the southeast is Yucca Valley CA. and I am pretty sure people stay in hotels there because I have driven back into yucca valley for a hot meal at a decent restaurant and there are crowds everywhere and hotel chains. To the north is Barstow, hotels and fast food and is not a far drive at all. To the west/northwest is Lucerne and further in same direction is Victorville all drivable too, but Lucerne is tiny.

We are still a few months out from the event but I am thinking at a minimumI may book a room in Yucca Valley since I drive in from the east/southeast of the event. Also my wife would be more willing to accompany if she has some promise of comfort.

2013 was also the year I had committed to entering the race, not sure its going to happen though. Life seems to be getting in the way of my racing career.

Where you going to race EVO Jeep? Isn't the EVO lever limited to the unlimited class? I thought I remember reading about that last year.

I hate it when life gets in the way of living.

Ray, is correct. I knew this from last years event and from talking with Mel. A few years back when I decided to commit to it, it was one class only; Unlimited. EVOJEEP is capable......but it doesn't have the ponies under the hood to start off, needs a full roll cage and fuel cell too. There are some lighting requirements that must be added also. Basically, three years ago I could have entered my rig. The race series has grown into something even the founding promoters never imagined (and thats a great thing) It would be cheaper for me to buy a TJ and just race the everyman's challenge class, than strip the EVO lever off the rear and do a coilover setup through the tub. Right now I am looking for some used raced cars that might be able to get into the the unlimited class without much modifying. I have a couple of guys willing to do some entry level sponsoring for me, they already sponsor a mutli-million dollar Funny car team and LeMans race team. I am just not quite ready to give up my very well paying job, have my family starve, all while I chase the podium. There is an old saying, "if you want to make a small fortune in racing.....start with a large one"

Hell, I still need to eventually get together and wheel with you and a few of the boys from Phoenix. From reading the other forum, sounds like you have been hitting the trails pretty regular since your jeep has gotten built up with all those beefy parts. I am actually back in PHX this weekend and I was going to hit the jeep jamboree in north Scottsdale, but my jeep is still in SoCal from last weeks Offroad expo. Glad to see you over here Casey!

Thanks for the update on the thread Cindy! Yep, way before I met you guys I did lots of road racing in a few race cars I owned, a little Baja/desert action and actually used my built up TJ for some Rock Racing.....and then came the first year of the King of the Hammers and I knew thats what I was going to do. The race has gotten so much attention and grown so fast, there was no way the promoters could keep to the original tenants of not having a big fat book of rules and basically being open to anyone and any rig. It really is a great thing the event has become such a professional venue, but now the era of the homegrown racer doing well has almost passed (at least in the unlimited series). I am still moving ahead in the direction of racing again, even if its just helping out with chase duties, crew support, or co-driving, I will continue to be involved with the sport at any level possible!

Sorry for not getting this up sooner. Got back from the Hammers late last night and got right to work on uploading HEARTLAND. :crazyeyes:

Anyway, here's a map of Hammertown and, as you can see, I added a red star where we are setup...

The easiest way to get to it is to cut right through the middle of town from Gate 2 or, to circle around town from the southeast side. To help you find us, we are right next to the ORW trailer and, at least as of yesterday, there's still room for folks to setup. We'll be heading back there on Tuesday or early Wednesday and hope to see you there :cool:

We so wanted to be there, but we aren't ready to compete. We didn't want to show, just for the sake of showing. We'll be getting the Jeep ready for another race in April.

I only know a few people who will be there and they will all be busy with the race. Any guidance you all can provide as far good places to watch from would be great.

Not sure if things have changed but, where Moochie setup, there was a good amount of room to setup at least one more RV and plenty of tents. The porta-potties are close by too.

There was a fatal crash about a mile from Boone road Saturday night. Two car crash.


JOHNSON VALLEY • An off-road racer participating in King of the Hammers was identified as the driver who was arrested in suspicion of driving drunk and killing three Hesperia teenagers in a head-on collision Saturday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Charles Wayne Persons, 31, of Thousand Oaks, was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s website.

Persons’ bail is set at $250,000, and he is scheduled to be arraigned in Morongo court Tueday. The District Attorney’s office hasn’t received the case yet, spokesman Christopher Lee said Monday morning.

Persons had been camping out near the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Area for the annual off-road race, CHP Sgt. Bill Green said by phone Monday. He was practicing all day Saturday and was headed to Yucca Valley in the evening to get some supplies.

The accident happened at about 8:10 p.m. when Persons was driving his 2012 Chevy Silverado pickup truck southbound on two-lane Old Woman Springs Road (Highway 247) near Olivine Road.

Trying to pass several other vehicles, Persons crossed over the double yellow lines and got into the northbound lane near the crest, Green said. At the same time, a 2001 Saturn sedan, driven by 18-year-old Tyler Shane Correll, was traveling northbound and climbing up the hill.

The two drivers saw each other, Green said. Persons and Correll swerved in the same direction and collided “headlights to headlights,” according to Green. The two cars ended up on the east shoulder of the road.

Correll and his two passengers — Jordan LaRocque, 17, and Ruben Ramos, 18 — died before fire rescuers extricated them.

Persons was transported to Hi-Desert Medical Center in Joshua Tree for a back injury before he was arrested, Green said.

His passenger, Brandon Swink, 35, of Thousand Oaks, suffered internal head bleeding and spinal compression in the lower regional, according to Green. Swink was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs.

Old Woman Springs Road was closed near the scene for about an hour and half, according to Green.

Correll, La Rocque and Ramos were on their way back from Yucca Valley where they were running a family errand, Green said. Ramos, who was sitting in the rear seat didn’t have his seat belt on, according to Green.

Every Man Challenge ran this morning. John Currie was second over the finish line. The team that came over first were DQ'd for steering and tire equipment not within the class rules. So John ended up winning. Big race is tomorrow morning.

I'm not in the race and I broke! It happened after an attempt to jump start EVOTJ. Now I'm a 3 link like Eddie.

Mel and I wanted to thank you again for trying to help us out on Sand Hill by attempting to give the EVO TJ race car a jump start on the course when we decided to call it a day. It's really cool to have someone help out, but even better when it's a friend :thumb:

My rig got broken into last night. Not a whole lot of damage but they cut the rear driver side window.

On a plus side, they used part of an ARB tire repair kit so now I don't have to buy one and I can get tinted windows.

More to add. The arb kit came out of mtg rig. They used that to bust into Adam. They tried to pop my tailgate lock and the alarm went off. That was at about 5 am and at the time we thought it was just my rig. Didn't notice the partial popped lock at that time and didn't inspect all the other rigs.

Thanks, Nice to meet you too!

I wish we could have actually gotten the EVOTJ started, oh well. Help/powerline patrol was shortly behind us.

True you have me one upped on KOH related trail damage! ;)

Eddie simply told me I have a Rock Krawler kit now. ;). I'll get it put on a rack this week and determine best course of action, I might just need to drop the Teraflex long arms and go EVO arms based on what an inspection yields. Eddie pretty much sold me on the reasons why EVO long arm with the large amount of flex I get with the DTD.

Yeah it defiantly sucks but it could have been worse. Replacing one window is easy compared to what they could have done.

The officer was telling me that they've had break ins in town for about a month and they seem to happen on nights when the weather is less then stellar like last night.

They took my gopro I had in there but took other things from Mike. Even some things he bought for his kids.

Good to meet you too Greg. Although I'm bummed I didn't get in on that overlander action before the EMC.

Are they different for the two doors and 4 doors and from the 07-11 and 12+? I will look into it. Thanks for the offer!

Calling insurance now to see what they say.

Figured that, thanks Chris. You know if the 12's are different from the 07's? (both 2 door that is)

I think there only like $150ish from the dealer so probably not worth it to file a claim. For now I will rely on duct tape.

I know the white one did. I was right behind him leaving the Hammers for home. I saw the wayalife sticker as he pulled onto the road for home. Was kind of hoping I'd get the chance to give him a Jeep wave, but for some reason he pulled a U-turn coming into Lucern before I could react. Might have been looking for his compadre.

Brother, this sucks! It's unfortunate that when you get big groups together who are trying to have fun, the scumbags tend to do their thing and try to mess up the good times.
