The 2018 Smittybilt Every Man Challenge race at King of the Hammers was one of the most exciting events of the week. Three vehicle classes—the 4500 Rubicon Express Modified Class, 4600 Pro Comp Stock Class, and 4800 G2 Legends Class—climbed massive boulders and hauled through the desert for nearly 140 miles. This year 135 vehicles crossed the starting line; only 12 finished at the end of the day.

First Place winners Dan Fresh and co-driver Byran Crofts triggered the checkered flag six hours after leaving Hammertown, claiming their first Nitto King of the Hammer’s EMC title. In this video, produced by Ultra4 Racing, covering the 2018 Every Man Challenge we hear from competitors Shawn Rants #4531, Matt Howell #4510, Justin Hall #13, and Toby Harvey #4508. We also get to see some awesome footage from the rockcrawling section, the starting line, and exclusive shots of winner Dan Fresh in his #88 Fox Racing buggy crossing the finish line. The Every Man Challenge is the second-oldest King of the Hammers race and one of the most popular; it’s pretty clear why. Desert off-road racing combined with serious high-speed rockcrawling, all in $100,000-vehicles with ultra-high-powered engines is really incredible to watch.
