For Immediate Release

Compton, California (January 27, 2015) – An agreement has been finalized between Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP) and Hammerking Productions that names TAP subsidiary, 4 Wheel Parts, the global leader in truck and Jeep aftermarket and performance products and installation, as presenting sponsor of the 2015 King of the Hammers (KOH) event. The alliance enhances Transmerican’s existing support of the weeklong event which includes title sponsorship of the Every Man Challenge race by Smittybilt, a division of the Transamerican Manufacturing Group.

This year’s 215-mile course spans through Johnson Valley, California, blending technical rock climbing with high-speed desert racing. King of the Hammers is renowned as the most grueling one-day, off-road race in America.

Greg Adler, TAP President and CEO, and competitor in the elite Ultra4 division, recognizes the partnership as a perfect fit for the 4 Wheel Parts brand. “From wheels and tires to suspension components, King of the Hammers provides us with the ultimate proving ground to test the products we sell and install at our stores,” said Adler. “While we’re also out there competing, this arena is the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our brands while interacting with the true off-road enthusiasts out on the rocks and in the desert. We’re proud to elevate our support of the event as it has grown into such a significant race on the calendar.”

Helmed by Hammerking Productions President Dave Cole, the King of the Hammers has grown from a small gathering of competitors into a nationally-acclaimed occasion attracting immense crowds flocking to the California desert to watch participants from across the globe scale creatively named obstacles and race purpose-built vehicles across the open terrain.

“When we started this, we had no idea it would grow to this size. It’s humbling,” said Cole.  We’ve been very fortunate to have people like Greg Adler and 4 Wheel Parts to build this event alongside us over time. In the beginning Greg and I would talk about the event and he’d give me his insights and now, they are a fantastic partner of ours. We wouldn’t be where we are without amazing sponsors and great racers who are bringing in the crowds. Together we are growing King of the Hammers and Ultra4 Racing.”

An estimated 60,000 people descended on the Means Dry Lake Bed in Johnson Valley in 2014 for the King of the Hammers. Close to 400,000 viewers took in the off-road action courtesy of live internet broadcast, establishing it as the largest watched off-road racing event in the country.

“There is nothing like it in all of off-road,” concluded Adler.
