Brad Lovell Takes Trophy in 2017 Smittybilt Every Man ChallengePosted in News on February 10, 2017 0) (
King of The Hammers (KOH) is one of the most-followed and anticipated off-road events in the Western U.S. and has expanded to include everything from full-race vehicles to mildly modified trucks and SUVs, as well as UTVs and motorcycles. Since 2012, 4 Wheel Parts wanted to sponsor a class to broaden the field of competition to non-professional drivers, and the Smittybilt Every Man Challenge was born. The Every Man Challenge (EMC) is divided into three sub-classes: 4800 G2 Legends, 4500 Rubicon Express Modified, and 4600 Pro Comp Stock. For the second year in a row, Brad Lovell, along with his brother Roger, won the overall EMC class, with a total time of 4:35:44. The Top Three of the EMC class was rounded out by Jason Fish, also in the 4800 class with a time of 4:47:40, and Marty Mann in the 4500 class with a time of 5:15:12.
Ben Varozza, an EMC competitor since the beginning in 2012, brought home his first victory in the 4600 class with a time of 7:50:44. The biggest surprise of the EMC races had to be Mann, who started in 91st position, and worked his way through the field to take first place. Mann has previously competed in many King of the Motos motorcycle competitions.
