Johnson Valley, CA
BJ Baldwin has qualified 29th for the 2013 King of the Hammers, (KOH) race in Johnson Valley, Ca. KOH is a unique race that has competitors racing through the desert at high speeds, which BJ does very well but then goes up and over some of the toughest rock crawling trails in the United States; known as the Hammers.
“Testing and time trials has been amazing,” Said BJ, “We try to avoid rocks in the Trophy Truck but out here, you have to go over them. Some of these rocks are 6 feet tall. I am good at going fast but these rock racers I will be competing against are good at going slow. You need to pick your lines through the rocks and that takes experience. Luckily I have support from the crew at Trent Fab to show me how it’s done.”
BJ is representing his normal sponsors, Monster Energy, Toyo Tires , Rigid Industries, Method Race Wheels, King Shocks, Lucas Oil, Hoonigan plus Trent Fabrication, Trail-Gear, Yukon Gear & Axle and MJ Motorsports. “My Toyo Tires are perfect on the rocks and deep sand,” said BJ, “King shocks has my rig working perfectly. Hopefully we won’t need to rely on our Rigid Industries Lights but I’m glad we have them. It’s going to be a tough race but we are looking forward to it.”
The testing, tuning and qualifying has been done. BJ will line up on Friday against 99 other competitors who have one thing in mind, to be crowned the King of the Hammers.
