Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Promises Delivered

2012 marked a year of significant improvements & growth

  • Hammertown not only became a city in desert, but a full service event venue.
  • Spectators watched the action live from Hammertown via the largest mobile  HD LED jumbotron available and a strategically prepared short course and  hot pit area.
  • Cutting edge live show integrating wireless cameras to a microwave and  satellite feed was tested and successful, paving the way for expanded  future coverage. Online spectators turned out en masse to watch the action. Viewership  quadrupled from 2011.
  • Race day was a success for vendors. Hammertown was no longer a ghost  town on race day, but a major revenue and exposure opportunity for our  partners.
  • Strategic media plan focused on branding KOH and maximizing media beyond  a handful of endemic media outlets.
  • King of the Hammers continues to be a mark of credibility and durability in  automotive and racing. Read More→

Nelson, Miller, and Gordon Shine on Day 2 of the 2012 Griffin King of the Hammers

King of the Hammers

Nick Nelson laid down a time of 4:46 at Wednesday’s 4Wheel Parts Time Trials, ending up second overall in the two-day qualifier for the Griffin King of the Hammers this Friday, February 10th

Unlike the solid axles used on Mooneyham’s Trick Toys Fabrication race car, Nick Nelson’s buggy from Jimmy’s 4×4 utilizes independent front suspension (IFS) for better compliance at speed.  The brand new, blazing yellow buggy set the fastest time, while most of the field struggled to even finish the course.  Only 55 of 70 starters reached the finishing gates under their own power on Wednesday.  The rest either succumbed to mechanical failure or frayed nerves as thousands of fans cheered them on in person and tens of thousands followed the 4Wheel Parts Time Trials online.

King of the Hammers 2012: 4Wheel Parts Qualifying Round Day 1

king of the hammersFebruary 7, 2012 (Johnson Valley, CA) – Ultra4 veteran “Easy” Rick Mooneyham has something to prove at this year’s Griffin King of the Hammers.  Mooneyham has been on the podium twice in the past, but has yet to be crowned King.  He made his presence known at Tuesday’s 4Wheel Parts Time Trials by laying down the fastest qualifying time, a blistering four minutes and forty one seconds.  The only other sub-five-minute time was achieved by reigning King and Monster Energy driver Shannon Campbell, the last driver on course for the day.  4Wheel Parts president Greg Adler was the first competitor on course and his qualifying time of 5:08 stood for much of the day.  By the time the dust had settled, Mooneyham and Campbell were the only two who bested Adler for starting position in Friday’s Griffin King of the Hammers.   It is interesting to note that Adler was piloting a vehicle originally built at Trick Toys Fabrication by none other than Rick Mooneyham.  Scott Ward drove a third Trick Toys Fabrication buggy to a sixth place qualifying time of 5:24, illustrating the effectiveness of the vehicle design.  Read More→
