New Northern Nevada Off Road Event in 2014
October 1st, 2013 - Jeff Knoll shocked the off road industry in March, 2011 when he announced he would be stepping away from the King of the Hammers (KOH), Ultra4 racing, and Hammerking Productions, Inc. Now the largest off road race in the United States KOH changed the landscape of Rocksports during the Great Recession, attracting 30,000 fans and participants to the desert of Johnson Valley, California.
Now, almost three years after selling his interest in the series he helped create, Knoll is set to announce his next adventure at the Off Road Expo in Pomona, California on October 5th, 2013. At 1:45 pm, Knoll will debut his plans for a week long festival that includes a completely new form of 4-wheel drive competition. The announcement will take place at the GenRight booth #4761. In partnership with Wild West Motorsports Park, and John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino, Knoll will share his vision to capitalize on the unique opportunities that Northern Nevada has to offer the Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Industry.
