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.


Mark your calendars, 2016 KOH date released.

September 24th2015


And just like that, we now have an official date for the 2016 Nitto King of the Hammers. Marking its 10th year of racing at its finest, King of the Hammers is THE race that kicks off the season, it’s the largest off-road race in North America, it’s Christmas that comes in the beginning of the year… it’s a race that can’t be missed. Oh, for that date… got carried away there. Hammertown opens for drivers on Friday 1/29 with the 2016 Nitto King of The Hammers taking place on Friday, February 5th, 2016.

Mark those calendars, 134 days and counting.
