Loren Healy, driver of the #67 ATX Wheels/Nitto Tire buggy, has officially been declared the winner of the 2014 King of the Hammers. He defeated fellow Nitto Tire driver, Derek West, by one minute and ten seconds, marking the closest finish in the event's history. Healy was also able to give Nitto Tire their first King of the Hammers victory with the Trail Grappler K-Spec. We'll have continuing coverage well into the evening.
