In every sport there is a person who is the living breathing embodiment of what the sport “means”. In rock crawling that person is Shannon Campbell. Not only does he fight like a mad dog for every inch of ground at every race, but he continually strives to break new ground on vehicle design. One hundred years from now I’m sure his name will be uttered as one of the greatest of all time. This year, his quest to become “King of the Hammers” has been achieved. He bested the nearest competitor by over 30 minutes and became the first man to win “King of the Hammers” in an A-arm vehicle. Here is an extended gallery of his efforts along with teammate Casey Currie. Photos by Jason Zyndroski of Mad Media.
