Lucas Murphy 1 220x146 Lucas Murphy 40 Miles of Fury at 2013 King of the HammersNORTH EASTON, MA      FEBRUARY 27, 2013:   Lucas Murphy designed a brand new car for the 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers.  2012 may have seemed like a quiet year for Murphy’s Law Motorsports, but they placed 3rd at the Ultra4 Rausche Creek Qualifying for KOH, built a new car, and built a toterhome and trailer setup.  On the Johnson Valley lakebed this month, they qualified early on Tuesday keeping the car together and sat in the top 10 for most of the day finally settling at the 52nd starting position for Friday’s race.  They only made it 40 miles in the King of the Hammers before they limped back to main pit with a transmission failure.  “To win, you have to have a perfect day with a proven car.  Our short 40 miles was awesome, and really we could have kept going forward, but we didn’t want to jeopardize anyone else’s race.  It was pretty uneventful,” said car owner and driver of record Lucas Murphy.
