Dynojet-sponsored drivers, led by Will Stewart, shined in various events at the 2020 King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, CA.
Picture the Super Bowl, mixed with Burning Man, set on (mostly) four wheels and pumped full of horsepower — and you’ve got King of the Hammers. For UTV racers and enthusiasts, King of the Hammers is the premier race event of the year, a 10-day-long party attended by people from all over the country.
Dynojet was front and center at this year’s event, not only with a high-visibility booth, but in the competitions.
One of the most popular events at King of the Hammers is the Shootout, where rock bouncers try to scale a jagged hill well after the sun has gone down. Of the 29 drivers who tried to ascend to the top, only 13 finished. In 4th place, with a time of 65.54 seconds, was Dynojet-sponsored Will Stewart in his “Gone Postal” rock bouncer.

Dynojet was also well-represented at the UTV race at King of the Hammers, one of the most demanding events you can put your vehicle through. Of the 131 entrants, only 33 drivers successfully completed the race. Dynojet-sponsored Justin Barth, racing a Polaris RZR Turbo XPT, was among the few who outlasted the treacherous course and finished the race. Barth, from Springfield, MO, placed 28th with a total time of 07:40:21.534.
Four more Dynojet-sponsored racers successfully completed one lap of this rough course: James Cantrell (67th in a Polaris RZR Turbo XPT), Chris Leaming (68th in a Polaris Turbo 5), Levi Metzinger (86th in a Can-Am X3) and Daniel Markley (127th in a Polaris RZR Turbo XPT).
