The 2020 King of the Hammers is here and today the first race of the week went down. 133 UTV’s left the line this morning to race over 143 miles of the toughest terrain in the US. The Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers race was the largest to date and Can-Am came away very happy.
Hunter Miller came away with the win putting his Can-Am first on the box with a time of 4 Hours, 29 Minutes and 44 seconds. Behind him was Can-Am teammates Kyle Chaney and Phil Blurton giving Can-Am the 1-2-3. Whats even more impressive for Chaney is that after a rollover him and his co-driver pushed the car back over, it then proceeded to run him over. Chaney got back in the car with a possible broken foot and still finished in second.
Last years winner Mitch Guthrie Jr. would have some issues early in the race and ended up 16th but his father put the first Polaris across the finish line in 4th. Jason Weller made up the most time, after qualifying 83rd would finish in the 8th spot.
Honda debuted their two KOH cars and both Christopher Polvoorde and Eliot Watson would finish 17th and 26th respectively.
Out of the 133 cars only 33 total would finish showing just how hard the race was this year, one racer Raul Gomez would have to push his own car across the line.
