    Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg Joins Jeremy McGrath on Team Toyo® Off-Road in 2012

    CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. announced today Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg and Jeremy McGrath will both compete in the Pro2 Unlimited class of the Lucas Oil® Off Road Racing Series on Toyo® Open Country M/T®-R tires. This action-packed short-course off-road racing series features large fields of entrants in high-horsepower machines, all fighting for the top spot on the podium. Both drivers are members of the powerful Stronghold Motorsports off-road racing team.

    Last year seven-time AMA Supercross Champion, Jeremy McGrath, captured his first win in Pro 2 Unlimited in front of a packed stadium at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He also captured six podium finishes, one being third overall in the big money finale, the Lucas Oil Challenge Cup, Pro 2 vs. Pro 4. With his 2011 successes, look for McGrath to be a strong contender for the Pro 2 Unlimited championship in 2012 with his 900-horsepower #2 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires® Ford F-150.

    Joining McGrath and Team Toyo Off-Road is Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg with his Toyo Tires / Stronghold Motorsports Ford F-150. The hard-charging Stenberg is a 10-time X-Games medalist in Freestyle Moto-X and won the 2010 SuperLite truck class championship in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.

    “I’m pumped to be joining my teammate Jeremy McGrath on Team Toyo. Toyo Tires has established itself as a leader in short course off road racing with the Open Country M/T race tire,” said Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg. “My Stronghold Motorsports Pro2 is dialed in and with my Toyo Tires putting that horsepower to the ground we’re going to be a force to be reckoned with.”

    “We are excited to have both Jeremy ‘Twitch’ Stenberg and Jeremy McGrath as members of Team Toyo Off-Road in 2012,” said Amy Coleman, senior director of marketing, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Both are highly competitive and have a huge base of fans. They will both be great representatives of our Toyo Tires philosophy… Driven to Perform.”

    The 16-race Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series begins March 31, 2012 at Firebird Raceway in Chandler, Arizona. Races will be broadcast on CBS Sports, NBC Sports Network, SPEED Channel and MavTV. Log on to www.lucasoiloffroad.com for both race and programming schedules.

    Rodrigo Ampudia Joins Team Toyo® Off-Road in 2012

    CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. announced today that Pro2 Unlimited class driver Rodrigo Ampudia, has joined Team Toyo® Off-Road for the 2012 race season. Competing in the Lucas Oil® Off Road Racing Series, Ampudia will pilot his 900-horsepower #36 Papas and Beer / Lucas Oil / Toyo Tires® Ford Raptor on Toyo® Open Country M/T®-R tires. The high-energy Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series draws huge crowds and is broadcast on television through major networks and cable.

    Ampudia, now a resident of San Diego, California; has many accomplishments to his name. During his 2006 rookie season in short course off-road racing, Ampudia was the first international driver to win a Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR™) series race. He also won the CORR World Championship race in Crandon, Wisconsin during that same year. Ampudia then capped it off by winning the 2006 CORR Series Pro-Lite™ class championship. When he made the transition to Pro 2 class trucks, he qualified first in his rookie year.

    "From my earliest days behind the wheel, I learned the absolute necessity of running tires I can trust. Our new partnership with Toyo Tires gives RA Motorsports everything we need to pursue a championship title,” said Ampudia. “I am really excited to be a part of the Toyo Tires racing team as we share the same commitment for performance and innovation. Toyo is synonymous with quality in the world of Off Road Racing carrying an amazing reputation worldwide."

    “We are thrilled to announce the addition of Rodrigo Ampudia to our impressive team of short course racers,” said Amy Coleman, senior director of marketing, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Rodrigo is a championship driver who will help demonstrate the winning capabilities of our Open Country M/T-R tires. He also expands our marketing reach, exposing the Toyo Tires brand to new fans both in the United States and Mexico.”

    Ampudia completes Team Toyo Off-Road’s Lucas Oil Series super team which includes Kyle LeDuc, Jeremy McGrath and Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg.

    Re: Team ReadyLIFT® Racing & Marty Hart Join Forces To Compete For The 2012 Lucas Oil Off Road Series Championship

    For Immediate Release:
    Team ReadyLIFT® Racing is proud to announce that veteran racer and multi-time champion Marty Hart and ReadyLIFT® have joined forces. Hart will pilot the ReadyLIFT® Off Road Suspension Unlimited Pro 2 as he seeks to secure yet another championship in the 2012 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.

    Marty Hart joined Team ReadyLIFT® in 2010 where he dominated the Unlimited Pro Lite class and captured yet another championship trophy to add to the Hart family mantle. In 2011 Hart and Team ReadyLIFT joined up with Johnny Greaves Motorsports where Hart piloted Greaves Pro 2 for the first time in his career. The learning experience driving top-level equipment in the TORC series was quick and nearly every race Hart was a contender for the win!

    Looking to return to the high level of competition that the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series provides, Marty Hart and ReadyLIFT® Suspension look forward to an epic 2012 racing season ahead. With the new ReadyLIFT® Off Road Suspension company, a division of ReadyLIFT® Suspension Inc., Marty Hart will carry the identity flag both on and off the track!

    The Unlimited Pro 2 class is without a doubt the biggest and best show on dirt. Co-sponsors of Hart’s #15 ReadyLIFT® Off Road Suspension Unlimited Pro 2 include Maxxis Tires, GearUp2Go.com, Fox Shocks, Duncan Racing, Fiberwerx, Simpson Race Products and Walker Evans Racing Wheels. There is no doubt this is a great combination of companies and personalities!

    Team ReadyLIFT® is extremely excited to have forged a strong relationship with the Hart family, a relationship that began several seasons ago and now has arrived at a pinnacle effort. Race fans will have the opportunity to watch Marty dig hard for the 2012 Pro 2 championship while his up and coming hot shot son Kyle will pilot his matching ReadyLIFT® Off Road Suspension #523 Modified Kart. Kyle is proving to be just as great of a driver as his father and is looking to add a championship trophy of his own to the Hart collection of wins!

    The 2012 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series will begin on March 31, 2012 at Firebird Raceway in Chandler Arizona. Races will be broadcast on SPEED Channel, NBC Sports Network, CBS Sports and MavTV. For more information about the 2012 LOORRS season check out www.lucasoiloffroad.com.

    Hey Ken,

    I was told another team just sent you some pictures of their truck while it was getting fired up after a pretty thorough overhaul? It's always nice to hear the crackle of the exhaust after you've had the car or truck torn all the way down to a bare chassis!

    Thats what I heard! Curt Geer will be racing the Prolite class at the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Hopefully we will see him this weekend testing at the Lucas Oil Regionals Series Glen Helen.



    Truck: 2008 Toyota Tacoma Pro-lite Unlimited

    Chasssis: Copy of Rick Huseman's last Pro-lite now raced by Rodrigo Ampudia with changes to accomodate the Toyota Tacoma body

    Suspension: Huseman front suspension & steering, 4-link rear w/ shocks on rear-end housing

    Shocks: King coil-over & bypass at each corner

    Engine: Reverse cooled 2498cc. Tacoma RZ w/ downdraft Webers on Huseman intake manifold & plenumn.

    Transmission: Liberty 5 speed w/ magnesium case & MVE shifter

    Weight: 2875 w/ driver & ballast

    Extras: Engine laughingly referred to as a "Pintota" because it has the front belt drive, waterpump, and oil pump drive arrangement similar to Esslinger's Midget engines. Thus it's a combo of Ford 2300 and Toyota RZ engines...

    Carey Hart to Drive eBay Motors Off Road PRO-4 Truck





    Action Sports Icon, Carey Hart will be returning to the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series to drive the #46 eBay Motors-sponsored PRO-4 Unlimited Truck. Carey and his Hart and Huntington Off Road Team recently formed the plan to get him back in the driver's seat as the short course off road season draws nearer to the opening rounds in late March.

    "I am really looking forward to getting behind the wheel again," declared Hart. "I took a break from short course off road racing to get my SuperCross Team dialed in." Carey went on to add "In my world, there is always a lot on my plate. At times, it can be overwhelming, but I am thankful to say that everything is going awesome. I know the Hart and Huntington Off Road Team has worked really hard to step up with a competitive effort, and there is no doubt we will be charging hard all season. What else can I say, except that I am excited. I love the close wheel-to-wheel competition that you get with racing dirt bikes. Short course Off Road Racing is like motocross with four wheels and a roll cage."

    Hart and Huntington Off Road Team Leader, Ryan Busnardo affirmed this announcement with clear enthusiasm; "Carey and everything he brings to the sport is totally positive. He is a natural ambassador and we are thrilled with the new sponsorship from eBay Motors. Now that he is returning as a driver, I believe Carey will deliver the results we are all looking for. Hart is a competitor by nature and he would not be where he is today without his dedicated spirit and apptitude," Ryan concluded "The exciting entertainment platform of short course off road racing will allow us to demonstrate just what these machines are truly capable of with a talented driver behind the wheel. "

    Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series will host Rounds 1&2 at Firebird International Raceway just outside of Phoenix, AZ on March 31 - April 1st 2012. For more information go to www.lucasoiloffroad.com.
