  • Mikey Childress places third in class and sixth overall.
  • Macrae Glass captures first 2012 class win for General Tire.

Fort Mill, SC – February 7, 2012. The Best In The Desert (BITD) Series kicked off at the “Parker 425” over the weekend in Parker, Arizona and Team GT started the 2012 season off on the right foot. Following a 12th-place qualifying effort, Mikey Childress fought through a course that over time; became rougher and tougher to navigate. The California-native worked his way through traffic to finish third in class 1 and sixth overall with a time of 7:37:51. A solid start to the season for the Team GT veteran.

On the heels of his class 8 BITD championship, Macrae Glass started his 2012 season on top of the podium. Glass posted a first-place finish in class 8 as he begins his bid for back-to-back championships.

“General Tire is excited to start the 2012 BITD season with two podiums,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing, General Tire. “There’s still a lot of racing this season and we think Team GT has an excellent chance for more podiums and championships.”
