Goodyear Drivers Rumble to Victory in Nevada

AKRON, Ohio, April 22 -- A new season in off-road racing is delivering another "been there, done that" moment for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, as racers competing on Goodyear light-truck tires finished first and second overall in the Best in the Desert Racing Association's "Terrible's 250" in Primm, NV.

Two race vehicles from Porter Racing, with sponsorship by Grove Lumber, crossed the finish line in one-two fashion on April 19. The first place team of Steve Croll, Evan Vanderweerd and Ray Croll completed the competition in slightly under four hours and 27 minutes.

Carried by Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires in size 35x12.50R15, the top two finishing teams raced through the challenging desert course with no tire failures.

During the 2007 off-road racing season, in Porter Racing's Unlimited Class 1 "buggy" and its special-built Goodyear Wrangler MT/R off-road race tires, Billy Gasper captured the season-long Class 1 title in SCORE International Off-Road Racing. All Porter Racing vehicles now are equipped with Goodyear tires.
