The Smittybuilt Everyman Challenge, held during the weeklong of events at the King of the Hammers features stock and modified vehicles. The class was set-up a few years ago to give racers on a budget an opportunity to race the King of the Hammers. John Currie has won the event the last three times so it’s no surprise son Brandon Currie stepped up to the plate. The younger Currie had a lot of pressure coming into the event. He was driving his dad’s winning car.

Originally Jordan Pellegrino was out front and Currie was battling back and forth for the lead. Pellegrino would eventually break in a rock section and race was Currie’s for the taking. Winning the legends class was Australian Ben Napier. Napier entered his older Bomber fabrication car in the event. In the spec class Lance Clifford received a disqualification after coming in physically first. Clifford had received outside help which is not allowed. Shortcourse driver Luke Johnson would take the win. Luke’s dad, motocross legend Ricky Johnson finished third. Matt Peterson won the stock class in his 2004 Jeep Cherokee.
