Corona, California - September 6, 2013 - Asking Tony Talbert why General Tire goes racing is like asking him why he breathes.
"To the American public you have to prove your tires through racing, and General Tire has rebuilt its name since 2005 in off road racing," said Talbert, who manages the off road program for a company that was one of the leaders in the sport in the 1980s, nowhere to be found in the 1990s and one of the leaders again today in both desert endurance racing and the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO.
SPARKS, Nevada - August 25, 2013 - Brian Deegan stood outside his motor home at Wild West Motorsports Park as the pit area slowly emptied and put another weekend of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series competition in perspective.
"This weekend was a good points weekend," he said after one win and three runner-up finishes in four races during the iON Shoot/Share Silver State Showdown. "We're consistent, we're back in the game, we're back in the fight."
SPARKS, Nevada – Norm Dianda said Wild West Motorsports Park is a little more than he envisioned last year, but not what it will become in the years ahead.
The longest and arguably the most interesting track the teams in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO see during the season is 1.3 miles long, has elevation changes of more than 100 feet and opened for business in August of 2012 just four months after Dianda and Lucas Oil founder Forrest Lucas sealed their agreement with a handshake.
