Arctic Cat will enter five Wildcat Teams in the upcoming King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, Calif. The UTV Class competes on February 3rd before 35,000 fans and nearly 500,000 on-line viewers.

In the 2015 King of the Hammers, Dean Bulloch and navigator Karl Munford raced their Wildcat Sport to a second place finish. They are back to try to move one step up on the podium this year.

Arctic Cat partner, Robby Gordon, is bringing his 30 years of off-road racing experience to the King of the Hammers in a 2016 Wildcat X; the same Wildcats raced in Gordon’s Stadium Side x Side Series. Gordon has won seven international off-road class championships, two stadium series and three Baja 500s and is expected to be one of the front runners.
