John Currie and Gerald Lee Win Everyman Challenge Back-To-Back

Johnson Valley, Ca.- For the second time since its inception John Currie has won
the Everyman Challenge at King of the Hammers, (KOH) in Johnson Valley, Ca.  John and co-rider Gerald Lee drove their Savvy
Offroad, Falken Tire, Currie Enterprises Jeep to victory in 5:38:39, a blistering
quick time to run the course that allowed only six trucks to finish within the
time limit.

The first truck to cross the line was that of Jim Marsden
but he was disqualified. Marsden made his way to KOH all the way from the
United Kingdom. He arrived late and was unable to go through technical
inspection until after the race. He was not trying to cheat, he simply was
unaware of the rules and wanted to run as much as possible while here so he
entered the EMC; his steering was not allowed.

An equally impressive run was put in by Matthew Peterson. He
was the only stock class vehicle to complete the course. Matthew finished the
course in 8:18:22. He is the winner of the ProComp Stock class.
