Thank for posting my video. I appreciate it. I was glad to hear any rumors of not having the race go away. Jeff was cool about any questions I wanted to ask.

We'll have our RZR-S ready for the race. I can't wait to get it out there, and I'm definitely up for congregating together somewhere at Hammer Town with side by sides. It will be cool to meet you guys out there. HCR is doing my suspension and tuning, so my RZR will probably be hanging around his pit.

Joey, think you or Rusty could conjure up a map of what the pit and camping area at Johnson Valley looks like for KOH, then we could try to find an area for everyone to meet and camp. Keep the sideX's all together as everyone is mentioning.

The biggest problem is the place gets absolutely packed. Really need to have everyone take some extra time off and get there well before the UTV race. There is a ton going on during the week, and if you find yourself bored with LCQ, etc, for the buggy race, you can just go for a ride. Awesome place for UTVs to explore.

You've done this before Jon, what do you recommend for arrival day, etc. Any other good info you can impart on us.
Has there been a contingency listing or prize listing yet for the UTV Race?

I saw a promotional package put together by Hammerking at the Expo. There were a few maps already included in that packet. There may be an overall pit map in that packet. :p

Pretty pumped for KOH's 2011!!! We need to set it up early if we all want to plan a full on meet, camp, and get together at the race. I think it would be cool to get there kind of early and rope off a huge section outside of hammer town just for all of us to post up at

Jon said he's going to go out Monday. I am going to get there either Monday or Tuesday, depending on work...
I think having an area set up for the SXS crowd would be great.

My brother is flying in from VA Just for this race, do you think we should start a roll call list to try and get an idea, this might help determined how big of a space we need.

1. Craig: 35 ft Toyhauler. 1 rhino.

Just a thought.
