January 30, 2020 – Corona, CA. It is confirmed and a go! The LAKEBED LAUNCH is live! On February 4th, The Jump Champs newest event Lakebed Launch presented by Method Race Wheels will feature a “distance timed challenge” during the Ultra 4 King of the Hammers. THIS WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE INFIELD and will be part of the KOH LIVE BROADCAST as an included component of the scheduled event coverage!

The Jump Champs in association and support from Ultra 4 Racing has envisioned the Lakebed Launch loop to be built into the main KOH race course infield. A significant runway will lineup competitors into the elevated take off sending the vehicles off for an extended distance. A large wide-open landing zone will highlight the vehicles distance and then allow for drivers to safely returning back to initial start point to complete their timed loop.

“Carved into the beautiful Johnson Valley terrain, the Lakebed Launch will feature multiple viewing locations. It should be a great show with big action!” Sean Kepler, co-founder of Jump Champs explains, “King of the Hammers is an amazing event will so many things going on throughout the week. Dave Cole and his team have done a superb job and we are grateful to be a part of it.”

The Lakebed Launch will allow for significant branding and signage to highlight event partners all over the designated featured landmarks. The Pedal Commander Speed Lane, The King Shocks Launch Pad, The Method Race Wheels Landing Zone, and Turn Around Area will be all decked out and pumped up. We are proud to announce and recognize Method Race Wheels, King Racing Shocks and Pedal Commander for the participation and support.

The Jump Champs main focus is gathering the fans, the enthusiasts, the recreational off road vehicle or UTV owners and giving them a place to show off their vehicles and driving ability. With featured events such as The Jump Champs, The Time Trials, The Desert Drags, The Dirt Champs, The Fun Champs, and The Lakebed Launch are contest of skill which allows for the most participation with very affordable entry fees. This event has been long overdue and we are excited to team up with sponsors, big name racers and the iconic Glen Helen Raceway to bring this event to the masses. The goal is to bring the average spectator out to be part of the event, instead of sitting in the stands.
