Do you have an off-road–ready vehicle? Have you ever wanted to get on the King of the Hammers racecourse? The 2019 Mickey Thompson King of the Hammers Experience allows you to tackle the course just like the pros.

Legendary KOH racer Tony Pellegrino will lead the King of the Hammers Experience. Pellegrino has raced dozens of King of the Hammers events as well as the Ultra4 series. Pellegrino is going on his 10th year racing in the Ultra-4 4400 class. You won’t get to compete against Pellegrino in his actual Hammers car, but he will have a fully built Jeep JK to interact with drivers. Pellegrino will take participants on the very same route the unlimited vehicles will run during the race.

Drivers can expect to traverse obstacles putting their suspension to the ultimate test. Drivers will go through some of the roughest terrain in the most remote areas of Johnson Valley. The KOH experience will put participants’ vehicles to the ultimate off-road test.

There are rules to participate in the KOH Experience. Stock vehicles will not be allowed. Participants should have 35-inch tires and lockers on their rigs. The event will happen rain or shine at 10:30 a.m. on February 9. Those wishing to participate in the KOH Experience can register at
