2010 Griffin King of the Hammers DownTown HammerTown

JOHNSON VALLEY, CA,  FEBRUARY 1, 2010:  DownTown HammerTown has been laid out and is amazing!  The chalk is on the ground and now we are waiting for the tents to be erected and the semi’s to arrive.  It is truly a city on the lakebed!

There are over 80 vendors that will line the rows and fill the big 100×120 circus tent.  They range from vendors just showing their products, to massive outfits that have parts on sell for you to take advantage of.  You will just about be able to buy anything from nuts and bolts, t-shirts and hats, to some large bolt on items that you can purchase and walk out to install.  The best part of the Vendor show is you don’t have to wait to use your newest gadget!  You can use it that day!

The tent that you won’t miss is the King of the Hammers general store.  There you will find all the 2010 merchandise and programs.  These programs will make you successful during the week at the 2010 Griffin King of the Hammers.  It has the schedule of events, the drivers and numbers, the course maps and some great articles about the history of the King of the Hammers.

There are a number of manufactures that have stepped up to help out with any needs that may arise over the week.  There will be multiple shock support rigs here including King, Fox and Bilstein.  Torchmate CNC Cutting Systems has offered their services to cut anything that you need right on the lakebed.  ReadyWelder will have a welder that drivers can use to tack up a recent break.  4 Wheel Parts will have their semi out with a large assortment of items, but they will also be able to special order you products that will be delivered to the lake bed the next morning.  Butch’s Speed shop and PCI Radios will be on site to take care of your last minute racing needs. So don’t worry if something happens while you’re out there, our team of support vendors are there to lend a hand.

Traxxas is building an RC track that will be utilized for the Pro Driver race on Tuesday night and for anyone that brings their RC cars to play with during the week.  RC4WD will also have a rock pile inside the main tent to test their cars.

Tinaz Tacos and Funnel Cake will be out here the whole week to keep our tummies happy.  Don’t worry, Tinaz Tacos serves other dinner items for all of you wanting to eat there all week.  And if a hot cooked meal is not what you are looking for, there will be ice, snacks and dry package goods available at New Image 4×4.

We encourage you to stop by the Land Use Emporium where all the land use groups have bound together and united.  It is important that as 4 wheelers we all work together to participate with these groups.  Some will be doing raffles and others will just be handing out valuable information.

DownTown HammerTown will be where all the action is.  The Start Finish line is right here. Nightly parties will happen out of the Griffin Pirate4x4 Lounge with the campfire just walking distance away. Cars will fill the aisles for Contingency and Tech and stay in town for the Raceline Wheels Show and Shine.  And the Pirate4x4 TV Live! show will be running Live all week.

Bring your shopping list and increase your line of credit because I guarantee you there will be something here that you want!
