Discount Tire is proud to have George and LOORRS as part of its motorsports lineup and believe this is a great opportunity to reach West Coast fans with our brand.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Discount Tire, America’s largest tire and wheel retailer, announces its new partnership with legendary FUNCO Motorsports and champion driver Chad George for the 2012 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) season.
Discount Tire enters LOORRS as a first-time sponsor while George debuts the #42 Discount Tire/Traxxas/Yokohama Pro-Lite Unlimited series truck in off-road competition for the team this year.
LOORRS is the evolution of short course off-road racing. Infused with a West Coast influence, the motorsport brings intense four-wheel, door-to-door action to challenging, fan-friendly dirt tracks. LOORRS has 11 different racing classes with divisions for trucks, buggies and karts. George competes for Discount Tire in the Pro-Lite Unlimited class, which features 2-wheel-drive, mid-sized race trucks built on standardized chassis.
With an elite pedigree from Funco Motorsports, George is part of a family with deep roots in off-road racing. He has continued that winning heritage in LOORRS as the reigning Super Lite truck champion and a four-time UTV champion. Now driving in the Pro-Lite Unlimited series for Discount Tire, George is eager to compete for the prestigious Rookie of the Year award as a first-year competitor.
Discount Tire stated: “Chad was built for this sport. When you see him on the race track you know he has what it takes to bring home another championship. Discount Tire is proud to have George and LOORRS as part of its motorsports lineup and believe this is a great opportunity to reach West Coast fans with our brand.”
