2014 King of The Hammers Movie Titled “Element of Survival”

Trailer for 2014 Griffin King of The Hammers Presented by Nitto Tire Movie Released

JOHNSON VALLEY, CA – March 26th, 2014 – Hammerking Productions in conjunction with HeavyMetalConcepts released the trailer for the 2014 Griffin King of the Hammers Presented by Nitto Tire movie titled, “Element of Survival” today. The race, which is already known as the “toughest one-day off-road race on the planet” proved exceptionally brutal in 2014 with only 32 of the 158 teams that started finishing in time. The title is a reference to the tenacity of those drivers that were able to finish, including this year’s winner, Loren Healy, who overcame multiple obstacles throughout the day to claim his 2nd KOH victory.
The movie will document the week-long off-road racing event held every February in Johnson Valley, CA. 2014 marked the 7th year for the race which featured more than 400 teams and 40,000 spectators competing in over 5 days of racing. The movie will also include highlights from the King of the Motos presented by Trail Tech, 4 Wheel Parts Qualifying Days, KOH UTV race, and the Smittybilt Every Man Challenge.

“Element of Survival” is a joint production between the creators of the Griffin King of the Hammers Presented by Nitto Tire, Hammerking Productions, and media production company, HeavyMetalConcepts. Executive Director, Dave Cole had this to say about the movie, “2014 was our biggest and most successful race to date, and I’m excited to see that reflected in “Element of Survival.” This is going to be a movie worth watching.
The movie’s release date is expected this summer following a red carpet premiere in southern California. Pre-order packages are available for purchase at www.kohthemovie.com. The trailer can be viewed at www.youtube.com/ultra4racing.
