STOW, Ohio — After an incredible debut season in 2011, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels has once again returned to the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series as a 2012 series sponsor.
Through this strengthened program, Mickey Thompson is committed to bringing their legendary Baja tires and track-side support to the series racers, and will continue to work collaboratively with teams in the Pro-Lite Unlimited and Pro-Buggy Unlimited classes to test and prove their off-road tire products. Marking another major advance for 2012 will be the unveiling of the all-new “Baja Pro” short course race tire for Pro 2 and Pro 4 trucks. Jeff Geiser, of Geiser Brothers Motorsports, will be the first to debut the tires at the season-opening Firebird Int’l Raceway round March 31.
“The 2011 Lucas Off Road Racing Series series was incredible,” affirmed Ken Warner, VP of Sales and Marketing for Mickey Thompson Performance Tires and Wheels. “Lucas Oil puts on the best short course race in the industry today and we are thrilled to be a part of the program. Seeing Mike Porter, who races on our Mickey Thompson Sportsman ST Radials, earn two wins, four second place podium finishes, and four third place podium finishes during the 2011 season, was an absolute thrill and we look forward to another great year.”BREAKING NEWS: SPEED SPORT is back in print with a new monthly format!
