Cam Reimers and Ian Harris to campaign Radar tires in TORC

Posted on February 5, 2014

Radar Tires continues to develop and enhance its sophomore season in short course off-road racing by adding Cam Reimers Motorsports (CRM) drivers Cam Reimers and Ian Harris to its roster.
 
For 2014, Reimers and Harris will drive the No. 21 SSI Decals and No. 12 SSI Decals Pro Light trucks, respectively, in the 2014 The Off-Road Championship (TORC) season. Both Reimers and Harris will use size LT265/75R16 and 32X11.50R15 Radar Renegade R5 tires.
 
The two-truck effort of CRM should bode well for Radar Tires in TORC.  Radar Tires has three full-season racers vying for podium finishes, wins and the championship title in TORC Pro Light competition.  In January, Radar Tires announced that Red Bull athlete Luke Johnson, driver/owner of the No. 14 Project648 Motorsports Dodge Dakota, will campaign the full TORC season and a partial LOORRS schedule.
 
Now that he’s in his sophomore TORC season, it is only fitting that Reimers teams with Radar Tires, also in its second year of motorsports.  In addition to the new relationship with Radar Tires, CRM expands for 2014 and will campaign a two-truck Pro Light effort with Harris.
 
“Radar Tires looks forward to our second season of short course off-road racing with the addition of Cam and Ian to our program,” said Gary Blalock, Radar Tires Motorsports Manager.  “By signing Cam and Ian to the team, we’re demonstrating that Radar Tires is putting forth a serious effort.  TORC is new to us, but we’ll leverage Cam’s knowledge from 2013, and we’ll grow as a team this season. We have three solid drivers in TORC with Cam, Ian and Luke, so we’re expecting frequent podiums and maybe a few wins.”

Typical e-commerce websites selling tires often limit users to a drop-down menu of pre-selected tire terms without considering the driving and lifestyle preferences of shoppers. To find the best tire, consumers need to consider not only their vehicle's make, model and tire size, but also how it supports their everyday routines and hobbies.
