STOW, OH – March 7, 2014 – Following another incredible season in 2013, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels has returned to the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) as a 2014 series sponsor. Through this program, Mickey Thompson will provide the legendary Baja Pro racing tires and trackside support to racers, and will continue to work collaboratively with teams in the Pro 2, Pro 4, Pro Lite and Pro Buggy classes.
This year’s LOORRS Team M/T includes Brian Deegan, Myan Spaccarelli, Mike Porter and Jacob Person in Pro 2, Eric Barron in Pro 4, Brian Deegan and Trenton Briley in Pro Lite, and Dave Mason Jr. in Pro Buggy.
“We’re returning to the series this year with an all-star lineup,” stated Ken Warner, VP of Marketing for Mickey Thompson. “Brian was the 2013 Pro Lite champion, Trenton was the Pro Lite Rookie of the Year and Eric was a consistent winner in Pro 4 last year. This year, we’ve got Mike, who was the Pro Buggy champion in 2011, and we’ve added Myan who promises to be a contender in this series.”
“Our Baja Pro and Baja ATZP3 tires are performing beautifully in this series and will be tough to beat,” continued Warner. “With tough, three-ply construction, the ATZP3 can take the punishment these guys dish out, including big air landings, and throwing these trucks into the corners.”
