REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio – Kenda Tires officials have announced the company will continue to support off-road short course racing and the Championship Off-Road Series.
Kenda Tires is partnering with ISOC Racing, the leaders of integrated race event production, to support the 2020 racing schedule and individual motor parks as a series sponsor.
Kenda embraces short course off-road racing as it allows us to race DOT tires – the same tires sold to consumers in retail stores. This racing series provides a rare environment for fans to see how the products they can buy in store compete directly against other brands.
Additionally, it demonstrates the extreme performance and durability in conditions that the average truck owner will appreciate for the extreme performance – Kenda promotes these features through our Podium2Pavement message.
“Kenda provides Premium Performance at a Value Price and will demonstrate the Klever Triple Threat – great performance, looks and value,” said Michael Higgs, who manages this program.
The 2020 Championship Off-Road Series kicks off this weekend at ERX Motor Park in Elk River, Minn., on July 10-11.The 10-round series will also make stops at Dirt City Motorplex in Lena, Wis., Bark River Int’l Raceway in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and finish up with two weekends in Crandon, Wis.
Due to the on-going threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, series officials made the decision to revamp the schedule and postpone the opening round scheduled for June 20-21 at Crandon Int’l Raceway. The annual Brush Run had been a staple for kicking off each new season, but after consulting with community leaders and regional health officials, the track and series agreed to reschedule the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run for Sept. 25-27.
Representing Kenda Tires this year will be Zac Zakowski (Pro Modified SxS), Dillon Pointon (Pro-Lite), Chad Rayford (Pro-Lite), Kyle Kleiman (Pro2) and Jimmy Henderson (Pro2).
