Company Claims Tire Manufacturer of the Year Award
Lake Elsinore, Calif. (Nov. 3, 2014) – BFGoodrich® Tires wrapped up a solid off road short course racing season by securing 19 total wins, a championship in the Pro Lite class and was named Tire Manufacturer of the Year for the 2014 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. The brands 76 total podium finishes was more than any other tire manufacturer competing in the series.
Many young drivers took center stage in the Pro Lite class but one stood out amongst the rest and that is “The Prodigy of Short Course,” Sheldon Creed. The young gun won his first ever Pro Lite Championship this past weekend and celebrated with teammates, family and friends. Throughout the season, Creed was consistent on finishing in the top of the class. A solid truck and a natural talent for driving are just a few of the factors that play into taking a championship.
“We didn’t leave one thing to the drawing board when we came into this season. With the support from our partners and the hard work and hours that my team puts in, this championship feels great.” stated Creed. “I know it takes a more than just the driver to win so I have to give a big thank you to everyone who helped us along the way.”
BFGoodrich Tires would come just out of reach of the Pro 2 Championship. With both Rob MacCachren and Bryce Menzies chasing down the points leader, it came down to the final round to decide the champion. Menzies, who won the Round Pro 2 race on Saturday, was quick on the draw leading the race but would run into mechanical failures with only two laps to go to the checkered. Menzies would finish the season out 3rd in points in the Pro 2 class. With strong performances all year by Menzies and Ricky Johnson, Menzies Motorsports claimed the Team of the Year award.
