The Every Man Challenge Race Challenges The Racers

The Smittybilt Every Man Challenge race is a unique event out here at King of the Hammers in that its the only race that has three classes racing at the same time. Class 4800 is the Legends class in which the idea was to give older Ultra 4 cars a place to race. They can only run a max 37″ tire, one shock per wheel and have to be solid axle. They are a flashback to when King of the Hammers started and how the cars were back then.



The 4500 Class is the Modified class and 4800 rounding out the final race with the stock class, and for 2018 both classes saw second numbers. Since the EMC race started back in 2012 only three drivers have won the race, and the past two years were won by Brad and Roger Lovell. This year however a new driver was invited to the party. Dan Fresh driving the Modified car #88 started on the 5th row and by Cougar Buttes was battling for the lead with Casey Gilbert.



The rest of the field slowly started to spread apart out in the desert with the miles of whoops seperating everyone before they would all hit the last lap filled with some of the nastiest rocks in the desert. A bottle neck on Jack North slowed some of the field down which let Fresh, Gilbert and a few others put a nice gap on the rest of the field.



As time went on cars started dropping out. 137 cars started the EMC race but a record low of 12 cars finished before the time limit. “They said they wanted it tougher!”, Dave Cole, Ultra 4 Kingpin said when asked about finishing rate. One thing that you can say about King of the Hammers is that if you finish the race you battled and won one of the toughest course you’ll experience. “That was an easy course” is something you’ll never hear from the racers.



The first car to cross the finish line was Dan Fresh followed by Gilbert as the two battled all day long. Fresh finished with a time of 6 hours and 15 minutes and Gilbert was 6 minutes behind, and on a course as rough and technical as this, really one mistake or having to get out to winch could of been the difference.

In the Legends Class 7 cars out of 77 finished, Modified only 3 cars of 35 finished and for the Stock class just 2 cars out of 29 finished the brutal course.
