Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, announces Yamaha factory-supported and bLU cRU racer CJ Greaves, along with his father, veteran off-road racer Johnny Greaves, and Kyle Anderson were among the few competitors who completed the grueling King of the Hammers (KOH) UTV Race on Wednesday, piloting Yamaha’s pure sport YXZ1000R side-by-side (SxS) before time expired. As the top finishing YXZ1000R driver with a solid fifth overall, CJ Greaves was awarded $5,000 for the Yamaha bLU cRU racing bonus.

The KOH UTV race, held annually in Johnson Valley, California, is known to be among the toughest one-day off-road races in the world, this year with only 12 UTV racers finishing out of the starting 115. It is the largest off-road racing event in North America in terms of both competitors and spectators, combining intense desert racing and daunting rock crawling.
