The King of The Hammers (KOH) Race is preceded by a week of anticipation and multiple races and events allowing for competition at nearly every level, including the popular Smittybilt Every Man Challenge. Of course, the most anticipated competition of the week is the flagship Nitto King of The Hammers race, bringing the titans of off-road racing together for a grueling, marathon competition that takes no prisoners. This year, Shannon Campbell took the trophy for the third time, capping off his victories in 2008 and 2011. Shannon’s son Wayland trailed his father by a mere 28 seconds, for a father-son 1-2 victory. Third Place was won by Jason Scherer, the 2009 KOH champion.
Further down the list, 2016 KOH champion Erik Miller took fourth, with brothers JP and Raul Gomez taking fifth and 10th places, respectively. Randy Slawson, 2013 and 2015 KOH champion, suffered mechanical issues during the race but still managed to finish within the allotted 14 hour time period, coming in 50th place with a time of 13:42:03. Bailey Campbell, daughter of Shannon, placed 26th with a time of 10:40:36, one of only 50 vehicles that finished out of a starting field of 122.
