As a record number of Stock Trucks converged on Crandon International Raceway to compete in the "World Championship Mole Lake Casino & Lodge Stock Truck Cup," it was Scott Beauchamp (pictured left) who earned a hard-fought victory during the historic 40 Year Anniversary at the venue coined the "Big House." Competing against a field of 18 Stock Trucks, Scott successfully navigated his way through race traffic and took the lead for the eventual win in the final few laps. As Beauchamp crossed the finish line and took the checkered flag, he brought with it the final competition of Crandon Raceway's 40th Anniversary celebration.

Scott Beauchamp, former World Champion and Crandon Mole Lake Casino Stock Truck Challenge Cup winner, says the MT/R with Kevlar is the best off-road tires he has ever used. "I can put the truck (pictured right) anywhere on the track I need to. With some tires you have to worry about getting out of the groove and into the loose stuff but the Goodyear MT/R's (with Kevlar) actually get better - they have that much traction."

For the fifth year in a row, Goodyear has earned more World Championship wins than any other tire brand and also has four World Champions for the 2009 season. During the 40th Anniversary Labor Day races at Crandon Raceway, 2008 Rookie of the Year, Mitch Dorr, (pictured left) also took home his first World Champion victory on Goodyear Wrangler tires during Saturday's SRT Stock Truck competition. A second generation racer, Mitch is the son of Geoff Dorr, an accomplished racer and multiple World Champion.

"Crandon is all about traction, toughness, and durability. Most of the World Championship wins over the last 5 years came on the same Goodyear Wrangler tires that anyone can buy from their local Goodyear retailer," says Goodyear Off-Road Manager, Jack Cummings.

Matt Gerald, son of 1996 World Championship winner, Kurt Gerald, was also victorious on Goodyear tires in the Light Buggy class. Following in the footsteps of his father, Matt had a remarkable day and an incredible lead during Saturday's Light Buggy competition. Crossing the finish line in first, Matt commented, "What a great day! Our car was working so well and the day could not have gone any better for my team or my family!"

David Demaegd, driver for the No. 496 Grassroots Formula 4x4, not only earned the victory in the final race of the Midwest series, he also claimed the Formula 4x4 championship with eight first place wins and one second place finish in the 2009 season. Demaegd claimed the 2009 title on the same Goodyear Wrangler tires that are available at national Goodyear retailers.

Bob Birkholz, driver for the No. 526 Grassroots Enduro Truck, also took home a well-earned first place finish on Goodyear Wrangler tires during the final round of competition in the Midwest series.
