TOUGHEST RACE IN THE U.S.

2017 King of the Hammers, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Imagine trying to climb boulders the size of cars and drive through the roughest and most grueling desert terrain you could find in Southern California’s Johnson Valley for over four hours. That is exactly what 79 UTVs and their drivers and copilots set out to do, attempting to complete the Nitto King of the Hammers UTV race sponsored by Can-Am. It isn’t a race for the faint of heart. Hammertown isn’t an actual town, but it…

PAYING TRIBUTE TO A LEGEND!

❏ We owe a great deal to dedicated ATV owners who spend the time and money to keep the legendary machines from our sport’s past alive and more than well. In this case, a Duncan Racing International, Inc. customer chose to unite two legends—Duncan Racing and a 1987 Suzuki LT-500R QuadRacer.

2000cc V-FOUR TWO-STROKE The ultimate dream engine is to take four Honda CR500 cylinders and put them together like this. If this motor was in your quad or UTV you'd have the most explosive horsepower ever!

WHAT TO DO IF YOU TURN OVER YOUR UTV

"Don't release your seatbelt until I get out," says the guy on the bottom. In other words, he doesn't want to be pinned in by the other guy's weight. That's a good rule to follow when you turn over a UTV with a passenger -- the low man exits first. Another good rule is to always wear a helmet when riding in a UTV, the same way you do on a quad. Every UTV owner needs to be aware that their machines can sometimes turn over. This is no fault of a UTV's design. Instead, it's based on the dips, rocks, ruts and steep elevation…
