The first year I went I had no idea what I was doing and showed up in a Hyundai Elantra and ended up hitch hiking to the spectator spots. Got to ride in some pretty cool rigs but since then I've always taken my crawler. A side-by-side is probably the best vehicle to have out there.

I drove a rental Nissan Versa out to King of the Hammers in 2016, and made it to all the spectator spots. Hell, I was even passing people in actual rigs in the whoops, and people applauded I made it so high up the spectator parking hill at Chocolate Thunder

Hell, honestly, it was a better time thrashing the rental around with buddies than watching the actual race

2wd truck out there would be rough to get around in. 4wd truck or 4wd SUV and you're good.
We didn't do too bad cruising around in my buddy's 2wd Avalanche. It was a little tough getting over to Sledgehammer since he wasn't willing to give it the same treatment as the Versa.
