Miller Welders Heads Back to Hammertown


Miller Welders is excited to sponsor the 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers (Feb. 2-9, 2013), the toughest one-day off-road race combining extreme rock crawling and desert racing, set against the desert landscape of Johnson Valley, Calif. The eight-day event, which combines the Every Man Challenge, King of The Hammers UTV Race and 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers race, will feature more than 250 cars and attract upwards of 30,000 participants and off-road enthusiasts. 


Partner and off-road manufacturer Blue Torch Fabworks will again join Miller Welders onsite to collectively offer free equipment access, weld support and specialized off-road repair to KOH race team participants. We also welcome new partner Troy Johnson and his team at the Riverside, Calif,-based Fab School. A small group of instructors and students will join our efforts at KOH, also providing weld support and repair as needed. Race finishers — who run the Miller Welders decal — of the Every Man Challenge and King of the Hammers events will receive a FREE Miller hat after crossing the finish line.


During the 2012 event, Miller Welders and BTF completed more than 170 race repair applications — both assisting drivers with welding support and offering up a variety of Miller welding and cutting equipment and Arc Armor welding protection free for their use.

Food and beverages will be provided, and 2012 KOH CHAMPION, ERIK MILLER, will stop by to talk about his experiences on the course, take any pictures and sign autographs, if interested. Space is limited to 30 attendees per event so please direct any interested gals to sign up early by completing the Ladies Only registration card in this packet and bringing it to the Miller tent.


Keep your eye out for Blue Torch Fabworks’ owners Jason Carner and Peter Basler on race day. The two will co-drive a custom-built Miller Welders off-road race vehicle for the 2013 King of the Hammers premier race featuring innovative new products and other custom modifications.
