The movie will document the week-long off-road racing event held every February in Johnson Valley, CA. 2014 marked the 7th year for the race which featured more than 400 teams and 40,000 spectators competing in over 5 days of racing. The movie will also include highlights from the King of the Motos presented by Trail Tech, King Shocks Shootout, 4 Wheel Parts Qualifying Days, KOH UTV race, and the Smittybilt Every Man Challenge.
"Element of Survival" is a joint production between the creators of the Griffin King of the Hammers Presented by Nitto Tire, Hammerking Productions, and media production company, HeavyMetalConcepts. Executive Director, Dave Cole had this to say about the movie, "2014 was our biggest and most successful event to date, and I can't wait to see that reflected in "Element of Survival."

Not exactly good sportsmanship?
