If you’re not one of those guys shipping last-minute parts to the lake bed, you’re certainly friends with one. It happens, we’ve all been there. Last minute tweaks, minor changes, major changes — a lot can happen in the days leading up to the big King of the Hammers race day. Each and every year, Wheeler’s Ship it Shop is there to ease our pain.

This post is more of a PSA than anything else, a reminder for those that don’t know or simply forgot, Wheeler’s Ship it Shop is located just outside Hammertown and offers a service to receive your inbound shipments needed for KOH. They charge just a few dollars per package, depending on the weight, and are open all week-long from 10am to 4pm PST (often later as we near race day).

To use their service, inbound shipments can be sent to the following address with your name as the attention:

Wheeler’s Ship it Shop
51720 Hacienda Road
Johnson Valley, CA 92285
(760) 364-3392

Pay the few dollars per package they charge at the time of pickup, and you can be on your merry racing way. Enjoy your race prep weekend of course, and for those that need a reminder the 2016 King of the Hammers week starts in just 21 days.

KOH has grown a little bit since 2008, no? Such an awesome throwback, thanks to King of The Hammers for the ‪#‎tbt‬.
