“KOH 2016 was our biggest and most succesful King of The Hammers to date. We look forward to continuing that momentum into 2017.” said Hammerking founder, Dave Cole, who went on to say, “It is our goal to release dates as early as possible to give teams and fans plenty of time to prepare for their annual trip to the lake bed.” With 2017 President’s Day falling later in the month of February, Hammerking moved the race back to it’s traditional place in the first full week of February. The last few years, opening day crept into late January due to President’s Day taking place earlier in February. The holiday is one of the largest recreational wheeling weekends in Southern California, and KOH Week must be completed prior to holiday weekend.
