BFGoodrich - The Tire of Choice
BFGoodrich once again boasts the most tire fitments among the four-wheel vehicle classes using specialty race tires like the BFGoodrich® Baja T/A®,, BFGoodrich® Baja T/A® KR and BFGoodrich® Baja T/A® KR2. Beyond these race tires, many race classes depend on the durability and toughness of BFGoodrich off-road tires to endure the Baja terrain, including the BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/A® KM2 and the new BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO2.
BFGoodrich Tires introduced the latest in desert race tire technology in 2013 with the BFGoodrich Tires Baja T/A® KR2. Since then, the tire has been adopted by race teams in various classes and has amassed 18 overall desert race wins.
For Trophy Truck and Class 10 classes, the top classes running the KR2 tire, BFGoodrich placed the top 10 Trophy Truck finishers and the top seven Class 10 finishers.
BFGoodrich Performance Team Recaptures SCORe Baja 1000 title
BFGoodrich's Performance Team, featuring championship-caliber racers, bolted out to a strong lead in the opening miles of the race, then overcame two transmission changes to claim the Baja Challenge (BC) class title.
After finishing second in last year's race, the team reclaimed the title and claimed another win for the Company's best all-terrain tire, the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A® KO2. The KO2, launched in 2014 to consumers at large, became a Baja champion tire in 2013 with a similar group of BFGoodrich ambassadors.
Led by Bob Bower, team captain and former overall Baja 1000 champion, the BFGoodrich Performance Team also includes Kyle Tucker, Brad Lovell, Bill Weber, Brian Finch and Rich Minga.
"Those KO2 tires took a terrible beating in this race, but we finished with the same set of tires we started with over a day ago," Bower said.
