Guthrie Jr. follows in the footsteps of his father, Mitch Sr., who has won the King of the Hammers UTV race six times. For the Guthries, Johnson Valley is their playground. They have also spent a ton of time prerunning and preparing for the race.
Wayland Campbell took Second Place in the race after Branden Sims received a penalty. Sims still finished on the podium in Third Place. King of the Hammers continues this week in Johnson Valley with the Every Man Challenge, T1 Desert Invitational, and the big King of the Hammers main race.
