2016 Nitto Tires King of the Hammers: Eric Miller Takes Back the Crown
In this year’s Nitto Tires King of the Hammers, after nearly eight hours of hard racing, two drivers ended up battling nearly to the bitter end.
For the 2016 Off Road Season, which starts with the Ultra4 Racing King of the Hammers, Casey Currie and KMC Wheels will be joining forces.
The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is known for being action-packed and carnage-crazy thanks to its short-course nature. With the LOORS teams coming out to the summer heat of Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, it would end up being a battle zone for many participants. Casey Currie, on the other hand, was out for revenge when he qualified in the back pack in round seven.
We watched the 1784 Jeep Cherokee drive across the field in front of us, cutting the pit course of the Parker 425. We had assumed it was just a newbie who got lost or somebody desperate to get fuel.

To make matters worse, this wasn’t even his pit spot.
Few places are considered harsher than the Australian Outback. The Australasian Safari is looked at as one of the toughest seven-day endurance races; it even rivals the Dakar Rally thanks to that improbable terrain. Team Lerner Reina set out with a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that was modified by American Expedition Vehicles. Let’s take a quick look into this amazing machine.
