Why do we do this, you might ask. It’s a passion to beat a challenge that has a very low success rate. It’s a drive to overcome the unforgiving desert and rock terrains found in Johnson Valley. Well, it’s simply because it’s King of the Hammers. Thank you Poison Spyder for all your support.

You probably heard about our movie premiere and some of you were even able to attend our premiere screening at the Cinema City Theater. We know that not all of you could attend and frankly wouldn’t have fit in the theater. With that being said, and KOH just a week away, here is another chance to get pumped up.
Secret DTR movie screening
Posted by Desert Turtle Racing on Thursday, January 5, 2017
We were excited to finally sit down and pre-screen the DTR documentary, created from 100’s of hours of footage shot during last season’s build, leading up to and including race day.
All set and ready to go play at Desert Splash next weekend. We are looking forward to breaking in our new set of ProComp 40″ MT2 Super Sticky’s. #dtr #desertturtleracing #procomp #rockkrawler#axialracing #poisonspyder #teamraceline #djsafety#fuelsafe #ruggedradios #magnaflow #jereel#ctmracing #ruggedroutes #lasernut#currieenterprises #spod #artecindustries #prpseats#luxwurx #factor55 #sharqskinz #jeeping #wheeling#4x4ever #jeep #racecar #playtime
This past weekend we attended one of our favorite family events, The Family Fun BBQ in Azusa Canyon hosted by ACORA. It’s a great event to get everyone together to relax and have some fun with friends with out any major itinerary or agenda. Lots of industry friends come out to enjoy the day in the canyon and check out the vendors. This year we were honored with the task of setting up the courses for the amateur rock crawl competition. It is a WE Rock style competition but we trim down the scoring process to give the amateurs a chance to think outside the box. The two coolest moves were watching competitors try front dig for the first time and backing through a gate to do their best at avoiding the cones. We would like to thank Mike Bishop of Azusa Canyon Off Road Association and the rest of their group for putting this event together. We would also like to thank all the competitors for coming out and running the risk of breaking their junk on the course to have a good time. And a very special thank you to David Gillespieat Sharq Skinz for getting our new wrap done in time and bringing the Turtle home for us to show it off at this event.
The weekend did not go as planned, with a broken sector shaft preventing us from wheeling as we would have liked. But it was great to be out at the Trail Hero event with all our friends, seeing the sights, taking part in all of the fun and watching the races. We will look forward to heading out to Utah again in the coming months to get our share of those awesome red rock mountains!
Some of the team got together and walked the Lucas Oil Offroad Expo show. We stopped by to chat with several of our industry friends and sponsors. It was a great time to reconnect and share some fun stories from this past year and personally thank our sponsors. There was so much to see at the show that we didn’t make it around to see everyone we wanted to. Sorry if we missed you. Stay on pace with us and we’ll see you in the dirt!
