RESULTS STORY: Josh Blyler Wins The World’s Hardest One Day Off-Road Race

2020 Nitto King of the Hammers
Powered by OPTIMA Batteries

February 8, 2020 (Hammertown, CA) – Over the past twelve years, the same five racers have won the Nitto King of the Hammers Powered by OPTIMA Batteries. This year, a new King was crowned. Josh Blyler proved that his 2019 ULTRA4 season points championship was no fluke, overcoming a nail-biting rollover late in the race to win the 2020 Nitto King of the Hammers in his Miller Motorsports buggy. “We knew we were leading, we knew we were doing good, and we drove it in there too hot, too hard, like a bunch of idiots, and just like that we were on the roof,” Blyler confessed at the finish line. “Jared was scrambling, he couldn’t get out. We finally got out, and as he was hooking the winches up he said ‘Don’t wait on me when we get you flipped!’, and I didn’t.” The Klingerstown, Pennsylvania native is a perennially fast and consistent finisher, completing all four Nitto King of the Hammers that he has entered (11th last year, 4th in 2018, and 6th in 2017).
