King of the Hammers is one of the most difficult off-road races on the planet, and the side-by-side class hotter and more competitive than ever. Polaris is entering this year's KOTH with a wide lineup of storied drivers participating in both the Desert Challenge and the UTV Championship Rock Race. The events kick off Friday, January 2, 2024.

The headliners are the Polaris Factory Racing trio of Brock Heger, Cayden MacCachren and Max Eddy Jr. They will participate in the Desert Challenge alongside Polaris-supported driver and 2023 winner Branden Sims, who will be driving a race-prepped RZR Pro R. Husband and wife Wayne and Kristen Matlock will also be running in the race, as well as Brayden Baker, Ryan Piplic, Sierra Romo, and Justin Lambert. The vehicle of choice for these drivers is the RZR Pro R, which already has race pedigree.

Polaris' driver lineup is stacked even further beyond the aforementioned contestants. Ambassador Casey Currie, CJ and Johnny Greaves, Ronnie Anderson, Mitch Guthrie Jr., and Cole Clark are all on board as well.

Coverage from Hammertown should be exciting as always, and Polaris encourages those interested to visit Polaris.com/RZR or join the conversation and follow on Facebook,

Instagram, YouTube, and X.
