Jeremy McGrath Motorsports takes on King of the Hammers 2020 and finishes 29th overall. “I am beyond happy to finish my first KOH event. It was just over a month ago when we decided to go for it in the new Kawasaki KRX 1000. This machine is incredible and we ran it mostly stock off the showroom floor. What a great day of racing, my co-driver Brendon Thompson is my new hero. This guy gave it everything out there and made sure we got to the finish line. Thank you Maxxis Tires, Team Kawasaki, Extreme Performance, ICON Vehicle Dynamics, PRP Seats, Rugged Radio and Rigid Industries for the support on this one. It’s safe to say this JM2 team will be back next year” said McGrath. Jeremy qualified in the 42nd spot on Saturday afternoon. At the first main pit stop he had worked up to 15th position and with 20 miles to go he was up to 7th overall. A small mistake off course damaged the vehicle just after the amazing run up “Chocolate Thunder.” The 2-man team of McGrath and Thompson managed to make the repairs and get under way finishing 29th overall. Only 31 cars
completed the course out of the 140 UTV’s that started the event. The #15 Kawasaki was one of the only vehicles to race with stock suspension and axles with a non-turbo power train impressing everyone watching as they finished the race.
