KOTM 5.0 Competition Heats Up

Fifth Annual King of the Mountain

King of the Mountain 5.0 Presented By AFR is shaping up to be the most exciting year yet! Competitors from all across the nation have accepted the KOTM invitation and are preparing to battle for the $25,000 dollar purse, and the title of King!

These highly experienced drivers will endure two days of intense autocross racing to qualify for the TurnOne 48 car shootout. The Saturday night shootout, dubbed the “Super-bowl of Autocross”, will take the top 12 drivers from each class and pit them against each other in an F1-style knockout bracket. Fans from all over will fill the stands and the hillside to watch the gripping finish under the track lights, and experience the crowning of this year’s new King of the Mountain!
