ITP Race Report: Steel City ATV MX National and UTV Rally Raid
Kyle Chaney took the checkers at the UTV Rally Raid Northern Series this weekend.
Team ITP racers won seven classes and earned a total of 21 podiums at round seven of the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National in Pennsylvania. At round six of the UTV Rally Raid Northern Series, Kyle Chaney (JB Racing / ITP) drove his ITP Terracross-equipped side-by-side vehicle to victory in Oliver Springs, Tenn.
“Our ITP ATV racers once again put in an outstanding effort, winning seven classes and recording numerous podium finishes. After seven rounds in the books, our riders are in the running for several class championships and that fact alone validates the performance and design of our tires,” said Pat McGuire, Public Relations / Race Support. “Team ITP racer Kyle Chaney put in an outstanding performance in wet, muddy conditions to win another off-road event with Terracross tires.”
ITP Racers Top Four Classes at Mammoth GNCC
Kenny Rich Sr. won the Masters (50+) class at Mammoth GNCC.
Team ITP racers fought through the rain and mud to earn four class victories and seven podium finishes at round five of the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series in Park City, Ky. Meanwhile, at the Best In The Desert Silver State 300 in Nevada, Team Murray Motorsports / Del Amo Motorsports piloted its ITP-clad side-by-side to third overall on the 1900 class podium.
“GNCC courses are tough enough without mud, but when you factor in heavy rain, slippery, power-robbing mud and everything that comes with it, the 2013 Mammoth GNCC was a very challenging event. Considering the conditions and the fact that 15 percent of racers DNF’d, I’m very pleased that we won four classes, had two racers finish in the overall top 10 in the morning and grabbed a total of seven podiums,” says Pat McGuire, public relations / race support for ITP. “The Murray brothers had a another good showing in the Nevada desert, earning third using the new ITP UltraCross R-Spec 30-inch tires in the BITD SxS Pro ranks.”
