The Jeepspeed Racing Series is designed to give Jeep enthusiasts the opportunity to take their daily vehicle and race it alongside other die-hard Jeep fans. Equipped with General tires and a motor from ATK Jeepspeed Engines, the common Jeep driver can have their shot at motorsport victory and race in this exhilarating off-road series.
A number of fitment sizes will be offered by General Tire, including 33/10.50 R15, 33/12.50 R15, 35/12.50 R15 and 285/75 R16. Travis Roffler, director of marketing, General Tire, also announced that the tire company will sponsor six tires for each of the first 30 teams racing in the 2011 General Tire Jeepspeed Challenge.
"This is a new and exciting series for us at General Tire," said Roffler. "We're an ideal tire for off-road racing machines like Jeep, so it really makes sense for us to be the official tire of the Jeepspeed Challenge."
The Jeepspeed racing season consists of five Challenge/Cup events with two bonus events, and will run from February to December 2011.
